The ABC show Bachelor Pad will not air this summer, the show's creator and producer Mike Fleiss said.

In response to a question from a Twitter follower about when the next installment of the reality show would air, Fleiss, who creates and produces The Bachelor and all of its spinoffs, said on March 16, "Not happening this summer."

Bachelor Pad features contestants from The Bachelor and The Bachelorette living together in one home and competing for a prize of $250,000. Last summer Nick Peterson took home all the money, turning on his partner Rachel Truehart. ABC confirmed the news that Bachelor Pad will not return this summer but did not mention whether the show will return in the future, according to Reality TV.

The first two seasons of Bachelor Pad gathered around 5-6 million viewers but its third season only had nearly 4 million, earning them a 1.3 in the key demographic, according to the report.

The Bachelor season 17 finale aired March 11 and fans saw Sean Lowe give the final rose to Catherine Giudice before proposing to her in Thailand on national television. The couple announced the next day that their wedding will be a televised special set to air on ABC. An insider revealed the couple is planning a winter wedding for later this year.

A new season of The Bachelorette airs on ABC May 20 and the Desiree Hartsock will search for love on the show after being sent home by Lowe during hometown date week. The 26-year-old fashion designer was announced as the newest Bachelorette by show host Chris Hanson during a two-hour After the Rose special where The Bachelor women got together to discuss their feelings over the season.
