The Ultimate Surfer is headed to ABC this summer, and it’s set to feature Bachelor Nation alumni Mike Johnson, Hannah Ann Sluss and a former lead.
Fans of The Bachelor will soon see some familiar faces back on their TV as Hannah Ann Sluss from Peter Weber’s season, Mike Johnson from Rachel Lindsay’s season, and even a former Bachelor will appear on the hot new summer reality show called The Ultimate Surfer. The series will seek to find the best surfers from a group of talented hopefuls. Some sparks will no doubt fly between the contestants, and the Bachelor Nation stars could have some solid advice in the romance department.
The Ultimate Surfer is a competition show that will feature 14 surfers who will stay at the World Surf League’s Surf Ranch in Lemoore, California. The contestants will compete in several individual and team challenges until the end of the season, when one man and one woman will be entered into the World Surf League’s Championship Tour. The show is about finding the best surfers, but that doesn’t mean there won’t be romance in the air.

The new show on ABC will give viewers the full summer experience when paired with the beloved spin-off Bachelor in Paradise. According to E! News, the Bachelor Nation alumni set to appear on The Ultimate Surfer include a couple of fan-favorites. Mike Johnson, who was once in the running to be the Bachelor, has kept a low profile in Bachelor Nation in recent years, and has also written a book. Meanwhile, Hannah Ann has been living the Instagram influencer life and regularly wows followers with her gorgeous selfies and fun cooking videos. Check out a preview below, courtesy of Anna Marie’s BachelorTV:
The Ultimate Surfer will be hosted by none other than former Bachelor Jesse Palmer, and Mike Johnson and Hannah Ann Sluss will be making cameos. The two former contestants posted behind the scenes shots from the show and a sneak preview of the upcoming season on their Instagram Stories. Both Mike and Hannah Ann seem excited for fans to see ABC’s new summer addition. The new show will have a two-night series premiere on Monday, August 23, and Tuesday, August 24, and will air directly after Bachelor in Paradise.
Any viewers looking for more summer reality TV shows with that signature Bachelor feel may have their thirst quenched with The Ultimate Surfer. Jesse Palmer will have a prominent role as host, but the two other Bachelor Nation alumni haven’t said what they will be doing on the show, so it’s anyone’s guess. Perhaps The Bachelor franchise stars Mike and Hannah Ann will be on hand to stir the romance pot and get sparks flying between the competing surfers.
