The Bachelor: Are You Ready for an All-Star Edition?

When The Bachelor franchise reaches a certain period of maturity, what is there left to do? Throw in a bunch of personalities with a colorful romantic past? Dig up some rumors that will stir some drama and hopefully earn the show more ratings? Or rely on good old fashioned editing to spice things up? The Bachelor franchise has already been there and done that. However, one thing that hasn't been done is an all-star edition.

Either the Bachelor producers are tired and bored or they're already running out of ideas to spice up the franchise. At any rate, an all-star edition could be a refreshing break from the usual bill of fare.

ABC, which has given The Bachelor an early renewal for the 2009-2010 primetime programming season in April, hasn't confirmed it so nothing's official yet. But an insider reveals to In Touch Weekly that "It's going to be a group dating show, and they will bring back people from the very beginning of the franchise."

"It's going to be a bit racier than The Bachelor," adds the insider, who hints that the series, which will follow former contestants vying for each other's affection, is expected to begin filming in January and will kick off with a three-day Mexican cruise.

Any ideas on how you want the show to go down? Who do you want to see on The Bachelor all-star edition? Who shouldn't return? While you think about that, one name has already been making the rounds. Jesse Csincsak, who got engaged to DeAnna Pappas during The Bachelorette's fourth season and then eventually broke up three months later, is reportedly in talks of appearing on the show.
