It’s a great day to be apart of Bachelor Nation! The official cast lineup for The Bachelor Winter Games was announced on Monday, Jan. 8, and now the premiere date is right around the corner. According to a press release from ABC, the reality TV spinoff will grace our small screens on Tuesday, Feb. 13, at 8 p.m. EST.
And, as expected, some the most beloved Bachelor and Bachelorette alums will be competing. Fan favorites Ben Higgins, Ashley Iaconetti, and Dean Unglert are among the lineup of contestants, while Trista and Ryan Sutter — who found love on Season 1 of The Bachelorette in 2003 — will serve as grand marshals to kick off the festivities.
Also set to make guest appearances? Current Bachelor lead Arie Luyendyk Jr. and former Bachelorette stars Rachel Lindsay and JoJo Fletcher. But it isn’t just American stars of the show who will participating. Stars from international franchises of the hit dating series are also joining in on the fun.
After the Jan. 15 episode of Bachelor, two faves from the season so far (who totally didn't deserve to get cut) were added to the Winter Games cast. We're so excited to see Bibiana and Lauren G. come back so soon!
