There’s a new spin-off joining the “Bachelor” family -- and this one is singing a new tune.
“The Bachelor Presents: Listen to Your Heart” is a six-part series that features singles looking to find love through music. Men and women will be paired up and their duets will be judged by celebrities.
“It really came out of ‘A Star Is Born’ meets ‘The Bachelor,’” longtime “Bachelor” host Chris Harrison told Michael Strahan on “Good Morning America” on Monday.
Harrison specifically pointed out the goosebumps-inducing performance of “Shallow” by Bradley Cooper and Lady Gaga at the 2019 Oscars. He said the “Bachelor” powers wondered if they could “create this amazing relationship that’s also an incredible duet."
As for how single people can connect while in quarantine, Harrison thinks it’s a good time to get out there -- metaphorically, that is.
“What a great way to actually form a relationship and really work on the important things,” he noted, calling out video chat services such as Zoom, Skype and FaceTime.
“Maybe not the physicality of actually going out to dinner, but hey, you can have a Zoom dinner,” Harrison suggested. “So, yeah, get out on the apps. You can still meet people, strike up conversations. If there’s someone you wanted to talk to for a while, reach out.”
“The Bachelor Presents: Listen to Your Heart” premieres Monday, April 13, at 8 p.m. ET on ABC.
