Bibiana Julian & Lauren G. Were Just Added to the Cast of 'The Bachelor Winter Games' & I’m Ready to Break Out the Popcorn

Despite only being three weeks into Arie’s season on The Bachelor, dedicated fans are already thrilled to know the latest spin-off, The Bachelor Winter Games, is set to premiere February 13. The cast includes some of America’s favorites, including season 20 Bachelor Ben Higgins and heartthrob Dean Unglert from Rachel Lindsay’s season of The Bachelorette

In addition to Ashley Iaconetti, former contestant on Chris Soules’ season and current co-host of the I Don’t Get It podcast series, Bibiana Julian will be making an appearance as a last-minute cast add-on. The newest series promo shows both girls having mini-meltdowns, and we wouldn’t expect anything less. A much more unknown Lauren G. will also be competing, but what’s her claim to fame? She was one of four Laurens vying for Arie’s heart this season.


Of course, Chris Harrison will return to host the four-part series featuring 26 former contestants from across the globe. They will face head-to-head in low-key versions of events from The Winter Olympics. Where do date cards come into play? The winners of each event will receive one.

Something interesting to note is the monitoring of drinks during the taping of Winter Games. After the controversy surrounding Bachelor in Paradise last summer, it’s only right the producers would be more careful. In fact, a source told People that contestants had could only have two drinks per hour and had to limit their alcohol intake before all competitions.

Between the amazing cast and the knowledge about alcohol safety, I’m sure many of us will be tuning in on February 13 for some mid-Olympics entertainment.
