As all long running reality franchises do, “The Bachelor/Bachelorette” has finally reached the stage in its growth where it’s accumulated enough scintillating characters to do an all-stars season.

Host Chris Harrison called Ryan’s radio show Wednesday to talk about the new show “Bachelor Pad” which he will host along side Melissa Rycroft.

The show follows 19 fan favorites from “The Bachelor” and “The Bachelorette” as they compete for $250,000 and a second chance at love. The six-episode series premieres Aug. 9 on ABC.

“We put them in one house, sleeping in one room,” Harrison shared, “they’re going to be going through some competitions and they’re voting each other off.  Guys will be voting off the girls, girls [will be voting off] the guys, and they’re also playing for a quarter of a million dollars.” Sounds like fun!

“To add to this,” he said, “these people have all been hooking up” so the show is going to be drama-filled! “We’re already in production, and it’s amazing…you get this many hot guys and hot girls in one house and things happen.”
