In the primetime competitive reality series, eighteen unforgettable former participants from The Bachelor and The Bachelorette came together under one roof to compete for $250,000 and possibly a second chance at love.  Hosted by Chris Harrison, each week the contestants squared off in head-to-head challenges to compete for immunity and the opportunity to go on a date with contestants of their choice.  The winner of each challenge would grant immunity to one of his or her dates via the presentation of a rose.  At the end of each episode, the contestants voted amongst themselves – the men voted off a woman and vice versa – to determine which cast member would be eliminated from the competition.  In a surprising twist, Blake Julian and Holly Durst returned home as a newly engaged couple.
