WHO WILL BE NAMED CHAMPIONS ON THE ICE AND WHO WILL LEAVE AS CHAMPIONS IN LOVE?, ON ABC'S 'THE BACHELOR WINTER GAMES'

'The Bachelor Winter Games: World Tells All' Reunion Special to Follow the Finale With a Special Surprise Engagement

"Episode 104" - It's the final countdown for the remaining couples who will face off in the final event - Couples Ice Dancing. As this journey comes to an end, feelings grow deeper and bonds become stronger on the season finale of "The Bachelor Winter Games," airing THURSDAY, FEB. 22 (8:00-10:00 p.m. EST), on The ABC Television Network, streaming and on demand.

Five couples remain in the winter games, but only one dynamic duo will come out on top, and the stakes are higher than ever as the daunting task of ice dancing lies ahead. During rehearsal, a pair of international lovebirds struggle to find their groove, leading to a serious discussion about their future. When the time comes to practice their moves on the ice, everyone is in awe when host Chris Harrison introduces figure skating legends Nancy Kerrigan, Tai Babilonia and Randy Gardner as their judges. Despite quite a few slips and falls along the way, these ice rink icons help each couple with their routine in order to prepare them for the big event.

To help ease the ice dancing stress, Chris Harrison has one more surprise that adds a different kind of tension for everyone - Fantasy Suite Dates - where each couple is given the chance to spend the night alone to decide if their relationship is strong enough to last beyond Vermont. One bachelor tells his significant other that he is falling in love, while another bachelorette must make a major personal decision to determine if she's ready to take the next step with her man. Will our couples wake up the next morning feeling refreshed and ready to take on the final leg of this adventure together or will the pressure of the game we call love get the best of them?

"The Bachelor Winter Games: World Tells All" - Immediately following the finale, after the skis and skates have been put away and all of the roses have been handed out, several of your favorite global bachelors and bachelorettes reunite with one another for "The Bachelor Winter Games: World Tells All," airing THURSDAY, FEB. 22 (10:00-11:00 p.m. EST), on The ABC Television Network, streaming and on demand.

Amidst laughter and tears, the group relives their experiences in romance, wipeouts and everything in between. Catch up on where their relationships now stand and all that they've been up to since they left Vermont - from one couple's cross-country RV trip to a man's confession of love for his lady and a very dramatic miscommunication, proving that the language of love is not always universal.
