Hosted by Chris Harrison (The Bachelor, The Bachelorette), Bachelor Pad returns tonight (8:00-10:01 p.m., ET) with a new season, joining together some of the most memorable and controversial characters from the Bachelor franchise. Five “Super Fans,” found through an open casting call, will spice it up in the mansion and compete for love and money against veteran bachelors and bachelorettes. The group heads to the mansion to live, scheme and connive as they compete for $250,000—and possibly another chance at love. In the first group challenge, “Falling for Love,” the men and women couple up and try to keep each other from falling out of quickly tilting hearts hoisted high up off the ground. The winning couple is safe from elimination, but the couple that falls first will each carry a vote against them into the rose ceremony.
Each week the contestants will square off in head-to-head challenges to compete for immunity and the opportunity to go on a date with contestants of their choice. The winner of each challenge will then grant immunity to one of his or her dates via the presentation of a rose. At the end of each episode, the contestants will vote amongst themselves—the men will vote off a woman and vice versa—to determine which cast members will be eliminated from the competition.
