‘Bachelor Pad’ Not Returning for Summer

‘Bachelor Pad’ Not Returning for Summer

The ABC reality competition featured former contestants of "The Bachelor" and "The Bachelorette" competing for money.

The naughtiest of the Bachelor franchise shows did not receive a rose.

The Bachelor Pad, the spinoff of The Bachelor that sees former contestants living together and competing for money (and sometimes love) will not be returning for a fourth season during summer 2013, The Hollywood Reporter has confirmed.

Executive producer Mike Fleiss tweeted to a fan on Saturday that the series would not be on the schedule this summer.

It remains to be seen if a fourth season of the slightly more raunchy sibling of The Bachelor will ever make it to TV.

While the most recent cycles of parent series The Bachelor and The Bachelorette both saw boosts in ratings, Bachelor Pad‘s third season slouched during its last outing. The 2012 run averaged a 1.3 rating with adults 18-49 and 4 million viewers, double digit declines from the previous summer.

The news comes less than a week after the finale of The Bachelor, which saw Sean Lowe propose to Catherine in Thailand. The new Bachelorette was also announced during the "After the Final Rose" special. Desiree Hartsock has already begun filming her season of the show.
