Old rivalries and dramas from past seasons of The Bachelor and The Bachelorette will get new life this year as ABC is creating a spin-off show in which former contestants will live and compete together in a Big Brother-style house.

The show, titled Bachelor Pad, will bring back 20 memorable contestants from the previous 13 Bachelor and five Bachelorette seasons, according to The Hollywood Reporter's Live Feed blog. It's expected to premiere in late summer.

"All these have been friends, been enemies, they date each other and bring all this great backstory to the show," says executive producer Martin Hilton. "It seemed like there was an opportunity to combine that world with a new competitive reality show."

The contestants haven't been revealed, but Hilton said top players and former winners are on board. The show will feature various challenges, some inspired by incidents from past seasons. Contestants will be booted from the house at the end of each episode. And Bachelor and Bachelorette host Chris Harrison has signed on to emcee. --Tim Nudd
