Listen: Everything you need to know about Bachelor in Paradise and who we think the contestants will be.
A spin off of the USA's Bachelor spin off show (try saying that three times fast), the premise of Bachelor In Paradise is simple - put a whole group of rejected Bachelor/Bachelorette contestants on a tropical island and watch the
drama sparks of love fly.
There are bikinis, rose ceremonies, romantic sunsets, people eager for the
spotlight chance to meet their soulmates - the perfect fodder for TV gold.
According to Wikipedia, the show starts off with an initial group of an uneven number of men and women. The men give a roses to the gals they want to get to know better in paradise and the two women who don't receive roses are immediately kicked off the island.
