Over the course of the season, we’ll follow cast members as they explore new relationships and viewers at home will watch as they fall in love or go through renewed heartbreak. If last season was any indication, “Bachelor in Paradise” will feature shocking twists, surprises, unexpected guests and some of the most unlikely relationships in “Bachelor” history. In true “Bachelor” fashion, it’s sure to be an “amazing journey.”

          Hosted by Chris Harrison, “Bachelor in Paradise” is produced by Next Entertainment in association with Warner Horizon Television.  Mike Fleiss, Martin Hilton and Alycia Rossiter are executive producers.

          Looking for a second chance at love on the season premiere, the cast arrive one by one to their own private paradise in the gorgeous town of Sayulita, located in Vallarta-Nayarit, Mexico. The cast comprised of former fan favorites and controversial characters from “The Bachelor” franchise live together along the shores of Paradise beach, share exotic dates, and explore new romances, all for another chance to find love. Each week, relationships will be put to the test as new contestants are introduced into the mix.
