The Ultimate Surfer Is This Summer’s Next Big Reality TV Show

ABC’s The Ultimate Surfer is looking like our next favorite reality TV show. 

In the exclusive sneak peek above, ABC introduces viewers to a group of surfers who are competing for the title of The Ultimate Surfer. The 14 individuals will stay at World Surf League’s Surf Ranch in Lemoore, Calif., where they will take part in challenges as both individuals and in teams.

At the end of their stay, one man and one woman will be given the chance to compete in the WSL Championship Tour, which takes place at some of the toughest surf spots across the globe.

But it’s not just sun and waves; there’s a bit of romance too. 

With former NFL quarterback and Bachelor lead Jesse Palmer serving as host, it’s only fitting that Bachelor Nation plays a role in the series. As such, former contestants Hannah Ann Sluss and Mike Johnson will be making special cameos in the upcoming season.
