Bachelor In Paradise returns for another tropical date with a slew of highlights and fan favorites from The Bachelor and The Bachelorette for another shot at love.
The series is a spin-off of The Bachelor and picks up contestants from previous seasons of The Bachelor and The Bachelorette, giving them another chance to find love on the small screen.
Contestants, many of them Bachelor Nation fan favorites, are invited to a beach villa in Mexico where they spend about three weeks dating each other in search of their perfect matches.
Unlike the original Bachelor and Bachelorette shows where all contestants date one person and aim to win their love, Bachelor In Paradise offers a level playing field, giving all contestants a better chance to walk away with a relationship – and for some, an engagement.
