All-star Bachelor being planned, magazine claims

A reunion of former The Bachelor contestants is being planned for a future season, according to a tabloid magazine’s report.

Citing an In Touch Weekly story that’s not yet online, MSNBC’s Courtney Hazlett reports that there will be “a one-time reunion of past contestants” and “is set to begin filming in January and will launch with a three-day Mexican cruise.”

In Touch’s story quotes an anonymous source who allegedly says producers “will bring back people from the very beginning of the franchise” and claims the show show is “going to be a bit racier than ‘The Bachelor.'”
