A Bachelor Spin-Off For Every Season — ABC Green Lights The Bachelor Winter Games To Compete With The Olympics!

Filed under: TV NewsMTVDisneyOlympicsReality TVThe Bachelor/ette

ABC might be reaching with this one.

Ahead of their upfront presentation on Tuesday, the Disney-owned TV network revealed that they're launching yet another Bachelor spin-off. And while the new reality program is still slated to have a love component, the recently announced show is actually a winter-themed athletic competition.

According to ABC, The Bachelor Winter Games "will 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."

OMG. STOP IT.

Also, does anyone else feel like the network totally stole this idea from MTV's The Challenge?? Hmmmmm.

Anywho, the spin-off is expected to drop in February as it will air opposite NBC's Winter Olympics coverage. We mean, that's not a bad way to hijack viewers from NBC. Not to mention, both Bachelor creator Mike Fleiss and longtime producer Martin Hilton have signed on to executive produce the show — so we KNOW it's going to be entertaining at least.

Still we have a feeling this spin-off could end in disaster, especially if past hyper-aggressive contestants *cough* Chad Johnson *cough* sign on for the series. We guess we'll just have to tune in to see how it all plays out!

Mantenuto was one of a number of young, first-time film actors to star in the 2004 retelling of the U.S. Hockey Team's 1980 "Miracle on Ice" game against a much stronger Russian team, playing real-life Olympic star Jack O'Callahan. He was only 22 at the time.

He went on to act in a movie called Dirtbags and Matthew McConaughey's Surfer, Dude before leaving acting to join the army, ending up in the esteemed Special Forces.

Such a tragic, shocking end to his story.

Poor David Letterman.

On Tuesday, it was revealed that the late night host's mother, Dorothy Mengering, had passed away. She was 95 years old.

The news was confirmed by the comedian's publicist, Tom Keaney. It's certainly heartbreaking to hear about Mengering's passing as fans of Letterman's knew her well from her many appearances on the 70-year-old's shows, The Late Show and Late Night.

In case you forgot, since the Midwestern homemaker was an excellent baker, Dorothy rose to popularity through a cooking bit playfully known as Guess Mom's Pies. Oh, and who could forget Dorothy's cookbook, Home Cookin' With Dave's Mom.

She also served as the Late Show's correspondent at the Winter Olympics in 1994, 1998, and 2002. David's mom will definitely be missed.

Our thoughts are with Dorothy's loved ones during this sad time.
