MELISSA RYCROFT TO CO-HOST ABC'S "BACHELOR PAD," PREMIERING MONDAY, AUGUST 9
Former "The Bachelor" and "Dancing with the Stars" contestant Melissa Rycroft gets set to co-host "Bachelor Pad," the exciting new competitive reality series from the producers of "The Bachelor" and "The Bachelorette." Rycroft will host alongside Chris Harrison ("The Bachelor," "The Bachelorette") when the series premieres MONDAY, AUGUST 9 (8:00-10:00 p.m., ET), on ABC.
In 2009 Rycroft joined ABC News as a special contributor for "Good Morning America," delivering fun and uplifting stories from across the country and from Hollywood's most glamorous red carpets. She also co-hosted "Dick Clark's Rockin' New Year's Eve" for ABC where she appeared alongside host Ryan Seacrest.
"Bachelor Pad" reunites 19 of the most unforgettable suitors from the hit franchise "The Bachelor." The series, which marks the first "all-star" reunion from previous seasons of "The Bachelor" and "The Bachelorette," will feature the contestants living together while competing against each other in a series of challenges. At stake is $250,000 and maybe a second chance at finding love.
Executive producers of "Bachelor Pad" are Mike Fleiss, Martin Hilton and Jay Bienstock. The series is from Next Entertainment in association with Warner Horizon Television.
