According to The Bachelor host, Chris Harrison, ABC will likely opt to bring back Bachelor Pad this coming summer, although no official decision has been made at this time. Read on to find out what Chris has to say about the possibility of a second season of the show…

In a recent interview with Zap2it, Chris Harrison, who hosts both The Bachelor and The Bachelorette, and who co-hosted the first season of Bachelor Pad with Melissa Rycroft Strickland, commented that it’s looking good for ABC to bring back Bachelor Pad for another season this coming summer. He said, “It’s not official, but I’m hearing really good things from everybody at ABC and the creators of the show. Everybody really wants to do it again. Nobody has officially signed on the dotted line, but I feel really good that it’s going to happen again.

Bachelor Pad, of course, was a new concept which saw a mash-up of former The Bachelor and The Bachelorette contestants face-off in games to win immunity from being voted out as they vied for a $250,000 prize.  Some proved to be in it for the money, some for love, and others for both.

Chris observed, “ABC really liked what it did for them. It helped fill that void and really launched their summer programming. It was a reunion show without being a reunion show. We were able to turn our reunion show into a game show.”

He noted that producers are looking to improve upon the first season’s success, and some changes would likely be implemented for season two.

In a very interesting twist, David Good and Natalie Getz both won the first season of Bachelor Pad and split the winnings.
