Chris Harrison is one active rose master; he is busy promoting the upcoming season of Bachelor Pad and the upcoming season of The Bachelorette, now that Ben Flajnik’s journey to find love is over. And many people are happy to see Ben and Courtney’s journey end on television. Harrison has been spilling some details about the upcoming season of the competitive spin-off show and he now reveals that it won’t just be former contestants that will return to the show. In fact, two outsiders will come to compete with the contestants to win $250,000.
“We have such rabid fans and they’re so devoted. And so we were talking about this and we thought, you know what, it’d be fun to bring a couple of them to Bachelor Pad and let them compete,” Chris Harrison explains in a new interview with Wetpaint Entertainment. “Our show really lends itself to opening it up to these uber-fans and so we will bring fans in and they will compete for the $250,000. And I think it’s going to be a great aspect to have these people that have watched the show and know these people from television to all of a sudden be right alongside them competing and living with them and being a part of the show.” And of course, it is all about giving back to the devoted fans of the show.
One has to wonder how the former contestants will deal with brand new contestants on the show. The two outsiders, a man and a woman according to Chris Harrison, would have to fight to win competitions and save some of the former contestants. It will be exciting to see how the outsiders will compete with the alumni when the show starts.
