“The Bachelor franchise is a proven fan-favourite year after year,” says Malcolm Dunlop, Executive Vice President Programming, Rogers Media Television. “Reuniting unforgettable participants from past seasons, plus throwing two Canadians in to the mix will make Bachelor Pad must-see television this summer.”
Each week, familiar faces from seasons past go head-to-head in a variety of challenges competing for immunity and the chance to go on a date with the contestant of their choice, all while living together in the Bachelor Pad mansion. The winner of each challenge will present a rose to his or her date, granting them immunity. The contestants will vote amongst each other at the end of each two-hour episode to determine which participant will be eliminated from the competition – and go home empty-handed.
The 19 contestants in alphabetical order are:
Ashley E. (The Bachelor Season 14), Teacher from Fairfax, VA
Ashley once surprised Jake in a flight attendant costume.
