Those missing "Bachelor Pad" don't have to wait long. On Friday, March 21, it was announced that ABC will be airing a similar "The Bachelor" spin-off later this year titled "Bachelor in Paradise."

The show's participants will live together in an “isolated romantic paradise” while trying to find love and survive the rose ceremonies.

"The romantic dating series will feature new twists, shocking surprises, unexpected guests and some of the most unlikely relationships in Bachelor history, plus all the usual romance, drama and tears we’ve come to expect from the Bachelor franchise. It all comes together in the romantic television event of the summer," teased ABC of the six-episode show.

Several stars from the franchise took to Twitter to talk about the big announcement.

Kelly Travis, who along with her dog Molly competed for Bachelor Juan Pablo Galavis, made some sarcastic comments.

"#bachelorinparadise you may not find a life long partner but you're sure to find a short term STD," she tweeted on Friday, March 21.

"#BachelorInParadise... Isn't that basically #TheBachelor? I was hoping for more of a "Bachelor in hell". Oh wait, I already lived that," she later added.

Not surprisingly, Molly Mesnick, who found her true love through the franchise, is super excited.

"THIS.IS.AMAZING! So pumped!," she tweeted, along with a link to the EW news story, right after the article was posted.

Meanwhile, Emily Maynard's ex Arie Luyendyk Jr.'s interest is piqued.

"So do you think #BachelorInParadise will be like Bachelor Pad on spring break?" he asked on Friday.

Several of Arie's fans replied telling him that he should just concentrate on his racing career rather than degrading himself by doing a show like that.

Of course, the "Bachelor Pad" did result in one marriage, that of Blake Julian and Holly Durst, so perhaps people shouldn't be so negative about it?

Who do you want to see on "Bachelor in Paradise" this summer?
