The show – which sparked controversy in the US during its most recent season – dumps a whole bunch of ex-Bach contestants on a tropical island in the hopes that they will
get sexy find true love with one another.
The show starts with an uneven number of men and women, with the groups taking turns handing out the roses each week. As contestants leave, new ones arrive and new sparks fly.
It’s all very dramatic and exciting.
LISTEN: On The Binge, Clare and Laura discuss the Bachelor In Paradise news we’ve all been waiting for.
So fans can be forgiven for… jumping the gun a little and trying to figure out which Australian Bachelor
rejects favourites would be returning for a second chance at love.
There are high hopes for a ‘villain’ showdown between Keira Maguire and Jen Hawke.
Fans are also anxiously awaiting Sam Frost’s chance to go face-to-face with Blake Garvey and Louise Pillidge.
There are also hopes newly-single Richie Strahan might finally be able to make up for breaking Nikki Gogan's (and all of Australia's) heart last year.
While no 'castmembers' have officially been announced, there are at least two Bachelor favourites that have denied they will be appearing on the show.
Posting on Instagram, Nikki Gogan said she was not in Sydney recently to film a promo for the new show and that her idea of 'paradise' was not returning to our screens to put her love life on full display (again).
"My idea of paradise is relaxing with my family & friends - laughing, joking and just having a lovely time together," she shared with her 110,000 followers.
I was lucky enough to be in Sydney a few weeks back to film a television commercial, not a Bach in Paradise promo. My idea of paradise is relaxing with my family & friends - laughing, joking and just having a lovely time together (a glass of bubbles in hand while looking out over some form of water body is preferred but not a necessity ????) I'm doing my best to live my paradise right here. Right now. I wish anyone that chooses to go on Bach in Paradise all the very very best, but I won't be joining them ????
