The bad news? Bibiana Juliana was eliminated on Monday night’s episode of The Bachelor. The good news? That wasn’t the last we’ll see of her.

The fan favorite will star on the franchise’s upcoming Olympic-themed spinoff, The Bachelor Winter Games, according to Robert Mills, ABC’s senior vice president of alternative series, specials, and late-night programming, who confirmed the news on Twitter.

“Good news #BachelorNation,” he wrote. “Bibiana is going to [Vermont]. She’s gonna be on #BachelorWinterGames!”

Bibiana, a 30-year-old executive assistant who hails from Miami, may not have had much luck vying for Arie Luyendyk Jr.‘s heart, but she did earn the affection of Bachelor Nation. The outspoken contestant made a name for herself by actively voicing her frustrations with some of the other women (and openly clashing with one in particular), all while fighting for her time with the man of the hour — and ultimately, a shot at love. (“I want everyone to know,” she said in her tearful farewell, “that I have tried.”)

After her elimination, fans and franchise stars alike took to Twitter to express their disappointment — and begin campaigning for her to either appear on Bachelor in Paradise or lead her own season of The Bachelorette.

As for Bibiana herself? She’s not wasting any tears on Luyendyk Jr.

“Miss you already,” she jokingly captioned a gloriously awkward throwback of the 36-year-old race car driver.

The Bachelor Winter Games premieres Feb. 13 at 8 p.m. ET on ABC, with subsequent episodes airing Feb. 15, 20, and 22.
