The Bachelor Winter Games premiered on ABC on February 13, 2018, as a spin-off of the Bachelor franchise. Hosted by Chris Harrison, the show featured 26 contestants from different Bachelor and Bachelorette seasons and from different countries. The contestants competed in winter sports and games in a picturesque location in Vermont, while also getting a chance to forge romantic connections with each other.

The show promised to be an international competition, featuring contestants from countries like Australia, United Kingdom, Sweden, and Finland, besides the United States. The format of the show was similar to that of Bachelor in Paradise, with rose ceremonies and eliminations, but with a more sports-driven twist.

The contestants were divided into four teams representing different nations. They competed in a series of challenges that tested their physical abilities and athletic skills, such as skiing, skating, ice dancing, and a biathlon. The winners of each challenge received a date card that they could use to ask any contestant of their choice on a romantic overnight date.

In addition to the challenges, the show also incorporated elements of the Bachelor franchise, such as confessionals and drama between the contestants. Some of the contestants were there to find love, while others were there for the competition or the attention. The producers also brought in familiar faces from previous seasons, such as Clare Crawley and Kevin Wendt, who had appeared on the Bachelor Canada.

One of the notable contestants on the show was Lesley Murphy, who had appeared on Sean Lowe's season of the Bachelor and who was also a former news reporter. Murphy, who had undergone a double mastectomy the previous year, was open about her experience and served as a role model for many viewers. Another memorable contestant was Ashley Iaconetti, who had appeared on multiple Bachelor franchise shows and was known for her emotional breakdowns and love for Jared Haibon. Iaconetti, who was joined by her Bachelor in Paradise ex Kevin Wendt, also had her fair share of drama on the show.

Despite its initial hype, the show did not perform as well as expected in the ratings, with viewership declining over the course of its four episodes. However, its international flavor and its unique sports-driven format were praised by critics and fans alike, and some hoped that the show would return for another season.

In conclusion, The Bachelor Winter Games was an entertaining spin-off of the Bachelor franchise that combined winter sports, international contestants, and romantic connections. Hosted by Chris Harrison, the show featured familiar faces and provided viewers with a different format than previous Bachelor franchise shows. Although it did not achieve high ratings, it was a captivating and unique addition to the Bachelor universe.

The Bachelor Winter Games is a series that is currently running and has 1 seasons (5 episodes). The series first aired on February 13, 2018.
