While The Bachelorette (hello, Rachel Lindsay!) and Bachelor in Paradise are no doubt as beloved by fans as the original romance-based reality series, we have no doubt that viewers could come up with endless ideas for new versions of the show 鈥 just off the top of our heads: Bachelor 24/7, The Bachelorette + Bachelorette, or The Bachelor in Anti-Paradise. However, we鈥檙e gonna bet you鈥檒l never be able to guess what the newest Bachelor spin-off is, because it鈥檚 not only unexpected 鈥 frankly, it鈥檚 just weird (though probably still totally awesome!).

Airing on ABC in February opposite NBC鈥檚 Winter Olympics coverage, the new series will take its own spin on the athletic games. Basically, take The Bachelor, mix it with the Olympics, and you end up with The Bachelor Winter Games. Yep, we鈥檙e totally serious.

According to the network (via Perez Hilton), the new show 鈥渨ill 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.鈥澛燙ompeting in athletic challenges AND for love? It may be an unexpected twist on The Bachelor, but there鈥檚 no doubt that this has plenty of potential for drama that鈥檚 as hot as the snow is cold.
