"The Bachelor" is moving from paradise to the slopes. ABC announced a spinoff of the hit dating reality series, as well as a spinoff of "Dancing With the Stars."

"The Bachelor Winter Games" will air next February as counterprogramming to NBC's Winter Olympics. Former "Bachelor" and "Bachelorette" contestants will compete in winter-themed challenges, including "the toughest sport of all — love." No doubt there will be some hot tub action. "Winter Games" provides the franchise with a winter alternative to its other spinoff, "Bachelor in Paradise."

"Dancing With the Stars Junior" will feature celebrity kids and the children of celebrities and pair them with junior pro dancers. They'll compete in choreographed ballroom numbers for an undisclosed panel of judges. The spinoff is set for next spring.

These two shows will join ABC's newest addition to its reality TV stable: a revival of "American Idol," which will debut in midseason.
