Bachelor in Paradise Show Description
Bachelor in Paradise is an American elimination-style reality competition television series, which premiered on August 4, 2014, on ABC. It is a spin-off of the American reality television shows The Bachelor and The Bachelorette. The show features previous contestants who have been featured on The Bachelor and The Bachelorette as they travel to a secluded paradise in Mexico where the show will take place. The show was originally hosted by Chris Harrison.
Development and filming
In March 2013, ABC canceled Bachelor Pad after three seasons. Very similar to Bachelor Pad, rejected contestants from The Bachelor and The Bachelorette are isolated in a romantic paradise in an exotic tropical destination. The first season was filmed in Tulum, Mexico. Beginning in season 2, the show has been filmed in Sayulita, Mexico at Playa Escondida.
The show begins with an uneven number of women and men, with there being more women. At the first rose ceremony, the six men are given a rose to hand out to a woman they’d like to spend more time getting to know in paradise. The women left without roses are immediately sent home. New men are then brought to the beach, so at the next rose ceremony, women can give a rose to a man they’d like to spend more time with and the remaining men are sent home. For seven weeks, this set up alternates between new men or new women joining the cast.
ABC renewed Bachelor in Paradise for a sixth season on February 5, 2019. On August 5, 2019, the series was renewed for a seventh season, which will debut on August 16, 2021. In June 2021, it was confirmed that Lil Jon, Tituss Burgess, Lance Bass and others would serve as rotating guest hosts for the seventh season, replacing original host Chris Harrison.
