Rob Mills, ABC’s senior vice president of alternative programming, confirmed the news on Ringer’s Bachelor Party podcast.

“[Summer Games] will be its own thing and it’ll run — it’ll be Bachelorette Summer Games. What’s nice about Summer Games, is when we did Winter Games, Bachelor was still airing, so it was a lot…this is Summer Games, and then Paradise will start,” he said.

“I think it’s going to be really fun. We found a really great place to hold it…I mean, it’s going to be so fun seeing these people in these great, you know, track and field and swimming…this is a real Olympics.”

He also discussed casting.

“I still think we need to look at the creative, and it’s like, do you — if somebody is with somebody or not, can they be in it? ‘Cause there’s certain people that you’d love to see — I mean, I’d love to see Jordan [Rodgers] or Colton [Underwood].” He also said JoJo Fletcher “would love to do it too.”

There’s another Bachelor spin-off coming soon…and it’s musical-themed! Find out more…
