This summer just got a little hotter for Bachelor fans! ABC announced a brand-new series featuring the Bachelor stars you love, hate, and love to hate — all hoping for one more chance at love. Here's the official release with details:
From the creator of The Bachelor franchise comes the new summer series, Bachelor in Paradise. Some of The Bachelor's biggest stars and villains are back. They all left The Bachelor or The Bachelorette with broken hearts, but now they know what it really takes to find love, and on Bachelor in Paradise they'll get a second chance to find their soul mates.
Contestants will live together in an isolated romantic paradise and, over the course of six episodes, we’ll follow these former bachelors and bachelorettes as they explore new romantic relationships. America will watch as they fall in love or go through renewed heartbreak.
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.
Hosted by Chris Harrison, Bachelor in Paradise is produced by Next Entertainment in association with Warner Horizon Television. Mike Fleiss and Martin Hilton are executive producers.
Bachelor in Paradise premieres Monday, August 4 at 8|7c.
