Are you a “Bachelor” and “Bachelorette” fan like me? Is love the universal language? Find out as 14 international bachelors and bachelorettes from such countries as Switzerland, Japan, and Australia compete and, hopefully, find love with 12 of America’s Bachelor Nation favorites. These singles will go head-to-head in winter-themed challenges, including the toughest sport of all – love.
Chris Harrison hosts this highly anticipated, four-episode series, complete with the usual dose of tears, drama, romance, and laughter, as “The Bachelor Winter Games,” a global celebration of unity and love.
For close to two decades, “The Bachelor,” a pop culture phenomenon, has spawned international versions of the series. For the first time since its inception, 26 of the most eligible singles from around the world gather at the luxurious Vermont winter resort of The Hermitage Club.
In the series premiere, the participants meet in the streets of Vermont for a grand celebration. Bachelor royalty Trista and Ryan Sutter serve as grand marshals kicking off the festivities. With the backdrop of snowy winter white mountains, ESPN SportsCenter anchor and sports journalist Hannah Storm, and KABC-TV sports anchor and correspondent Ashley Brewer join host Chris Harrison for the action. Following a featured performance by up-and-coming country music sensation Ruthie Collins, the singles move into their Bachelor villa and the games of love begin.
Throughout the run of “The Bachelor Winter Games,” fans can expect twists and turns on and off the ski mountain, as well as romance, heartbreak, love and, of course, roses. The bachelors and bachelorettes will participate in challenges from winter biathlon to ice dancing, with date cards being given to the winners of each challenge. Romantic dates will test the bachelors’ and bachelorettes’ perseverance in pursuing relationships with one another while faced with language barriers and cultural differences, including some amusing issues with intimacy. With guest appearances by world champion and five-time U.S. figure skating pairs champions Tai Babilonia and Randy Gardner, as well as figure skating legend Nancy Kerrigan, “The Bachelor Winter Games” promises no shortage of excitement. Viewers will watch Bachelor Nation expand into Bachelor World as love expands over oceans and across continents.
