Bummer news from the king of the Bachelor franchise today.

Mike Fleiss answered a fan inquiry on Twitter by saying there won’t be a fourth edition of Bachelor Pad, the cheesy fun spinoff of The Bachelor this summer. ABC confirmed that Pad, which has been a solid little player for ABC in the summer months, will not return this year.

No word yet on whether we will ever see the Pad again.

Pad launched in August of 2010 as an elimination-style game show that featured contestants from The Bachelor and The Bachelorette, who competed for a final cash prize.
