There’s Yet Another “Bachelor” Spin Off On The Way

There's Yet Another “Bachelor” Spin Off On The Way

On Monday, basic girls and guys everywhere will be on the edge of their seats as Rachel starts her quest for love on the new season of The Bachelorette. But before the season even starts, the folks at ABC have announced the next step in one of their flagship franchises.

On Tuesday, the network announced they will be launching “The Bachelor Winter Games,” a sports-themed spin-off of the show. According to Variety, ABC describes the show this way:

An ode to the Winter Olympic Games that will take competitive dating to a chilling new level. The spinoff will reunite the all-stars at a luxurious winter resort where they will go head-to-head in winter-themed athletic challenges, including the toughest sport of all – love.

Ugh, really? Is this something we really need/want? Listen: I’m just a big of a Bachelor/Bachelorette fan as anyone else. I DVR every episode and was super excited to chat about Rachel’s upcoming season with PGP resident Bach expert Crick Watson, MD on “Don’t Take It From Us” this week and listen to the dudes break it down on the new ep of “Touching Base.” But I draw the line at the spin offs. I don’t even watch Bachelor In Paradise for reason: I firmly believe that there is such as a thing as “too much of a good thing.” The magic of the Bachelor/Bachelorette is that it’s about a 12-15 episode commitment over a span of three months, two or three times a year, with a month or two break in between the seasons. It’s not constant, so when it’s on, you’re excited. If it was on all the time, you wouldn’t care as much, right?

The great Walt Disney, whose namesake company owns ABC, coined the saying “always leave them wanting more.” In the case of the Bachelor franchise, I think it may be time for ABC to start listening.
