Bachelor Pad Ideas

At the beginning of the season, each contestant privately votes for a person of the opposite sex to be eliminated. Each week, the person with the highest vote count from each sex is eliminated, while a competition winner casts the deciding vote publicly in the event of a tie. In order to advance to the final eight, the sex with the least number of remaining contestants selects partners for competing as couples. A ballroom dancing competition, similar to Dancing with the Stars, is the final competition. Previous Bachelors and Bachelorettes serve as the judges, with the winning couple deciding the couple it will advance to the final vote. The final vote is left to the eliminated contestants who weigh the most deserving couple to be awarded the $250,000 prize. After the final vote, the couple participates in a Prisoner’s Dilemma whereby the male contestant and female contestant must decide whether to keep or share the $250,000 prize. The final twist in the show’s format is that if both contestants choose to “keep” the grand prize, the monetary prize is evenly distributed amongst the other eliminated contestants.
