Guess who’s heading to the Bachelor Winter Games? Four guys added to cast list — check out their pics!


The Bachelor Winter Games will start filming in Vermont next month and, so far, four cast members have been confirmed.

For die-hard members of Bachelor Nation, 2018 is shaping up to be the best year ever. In addition to a new season of The Bachelor that premieres on January 1, the Winter Games spinoff will air in February.

So far, four contestants (scroll down for pics!) have been confirmed for the first (and only?) of the Bachelor Winter Games. Some fan favorites have already been cast but there are some new faces, too. Filming starts in December so it won’t be long before the full cast is either confirmed or leaked out online via spoilers. Here’s what we know so far…

Luke Pell

Country musician and chick magnet Luke Pell was packed and ready to become the Bachelor in 2016. At the last minute, producers gave the gig to Nick Viall and we slept through his entire season. According to a tweet from the show’s creator, Mike Fleiss, Luke will get another shot at finding love — or showing off his six-pack — on the Bachelor Winter Games.

Side note — now that Nick Viall is single, let’s hope he sticks to appearing in cheesy made-for-TV movies and Fleiss doesn’t add him to the Winter Games cast.

Jordan Mauger

Jordan was The Bachelor New Zealand (season 2). Soon he’ll be coming to the United States to compete in the Winter Games. We’re not really thrilled with this pick — there was a quite a bit of controversy surrounding his season and he already sounds a bit arrogant. Mauger told The Spinoff he doesn’t like cold weather and “the only ice I really enjoy is in my drinks.”

Um, dude, Vermont is cold and snowy, so put on your thermals and man up.

Kevin Wendt 

Kevin is a firefighter who hails from Toronto who was a contestant on the first season of The Bachelorette Canada. He won Bachelorette Jasmine Lorimer’s final rose and proposed, but the couple split in April, five months after the finale aired. (Is it me or does this guy look like Bachelor Ben Flajnik?)

Peter Kraus

Mike Fleiss says Peter is heading to the Bachelor Winter Games. Peter followed up with, “It’s not confirmed yet.”

I’ll bet a bottle of cheap wine that Peter is just playing games to keep fans talking. He’s going, and I’m pretty sure his pal, Dean Unglert is, too.
