Fans Call 'Bachelor Winter Games' Much 'Weirder' Than 'The Bachelor'

Bachelor Nation isn't known to agree on much, but when it comes to Bachelor Winter Games, they agree — the show is totally crazy!

The show, which premiered Tuesday on ABC, mixes the ongoing Olympic enthusiasm with Bachelor fever, which is at an all time high amid Arie Luyendyk Jr.'s season.

Things started off normally enough with the introductions of the 26 former contestants from The Bachelor and The Bachelorette internationally, including Ben Higgins, Dean Unglert, Bibiana Juliana, Lesley Murphy and Ashley Iaconetti from the U.S.

But they quickly went off the wall with an odd Olympics-themed parade through the streets of Vancouver, Canada, during which Bachelor host Chris Harrison pretended he was part of a live sports event, giving commentary on the competitors' athletic abilities like the series was not an elaborate dating show.

Then, there was the national anthem — or rather The Bachelor anthem, which featured these lyrics about the popular ABC show set to a stirring tune:

Bachelor Winter Games
To fight for love and more
Oh Bachelor, sweet Bachelor, we will compete for sure

In the time that we share, let's go beyond compare
Oh Bachelor, sweet Bachelor
We want to see this through
We stand entwined, our future's bright
To win your hand and heart
Oh Bachelor, sweet Bachelor
We want to see this through

And although the song made its debut Tuesday, several of the contestants were shown singing along, which perplexed many viewers.


Fans definitely let their opinions to be known on Twitter.

Bachelor Winter Games next airs Thursday, Feb. 15 at 8 p.m. ET on ABC.
