This obviously wouldn’t be the first spinoff for the franchise, as they started Bachelor in Paradise back in 2014 and also tried shows such as Bachelor Pad and Bachelor Winter Games.

Not to mention, ABC just announced a new show — The Bachelor: Listen to Your Heart — which will show contestants looking for love through music. And word on the street is that Bachelor Summer Games will be coming this year, timed to the 2020 Summer Olympics.
