Bachelor 6 twists include Bachelor being selected from two choices by bachelorettes.
Faced with a horrible hook-up track record and sliding ratings, ABC is mixing things up for The Bachelor 6, and they aren’t even keeping the twists a secret. Most significantly, there will be two bachelors, at least at first; the women will select which one they want to stick around. The two bachelors are “Jay Overbye, a 40-year-old real-estate broker from New Jersey” who is a” former model and world traveler started [who] sold his own computer network company and is a self-proclaimed history buff who is very close to his family,” and Byron Velvick, also 40, a California native and professional bass fisherman who was the U.S. Open champion in 1991 and 1996.” E! Online also runs down the other changes, which include the bachelor living in the same house as the women (scandalous!), and the appearance of “two ‘all-stars’–returning contestants from past seasons of The Bachelor–will join the mix later in the season and ‘compete’ for Overbye or Velvick’s attention.” Also, and very oddly, Brandy will perform during the second episode. As E! points out, this is “[e]asily the strangest pop star reality show guest appearance since Sheryl Crow played the back yard of the Big Brother house.”
