Melissa Rycroft and Chris Harrison Team Up for BachelorPad
She's not trying to find love again – in fact, she's happily married to Tye Strickland. Instead, she'll be co-hosting Bachelor Pad, a new ABC show featuring previous contestants from The Bachelor and The Bachelorette, with another person in the Bachelor family: host Chris Harrison.
"I’m excited." Rycroft tells PEOPLE. "It’s fun. It’s a brand new experience for me. I’ve never been on that side but I’m anxious. I’m excited and ready to start."
The show, which has already started filming, will feature an all-star reunion of "some of the most unforgettable contestants and suitors," a release from the network promises, who will live together in the mansion as they compete in a series of challenges and dates for a chance at winning $250,000 – and a second chance at love.
Bachelor Pad premieres Aug. 9 (8 p.m. EST) on ABC. –Eunice Oh
