ProductionEdit

Development and filmingEdit

In March 2013, ABC canceled Bachelor Pad after three seasons.[1] Very similar to Bachelor Pad, rejected contestants from The Bachelor and The Bachelorette are isolated in a romantic paradise in an exotic tropical destination.[2] The first season was filmed in Tulum, Mexico. Beginning in season 2, the show has been filmed in Sayulita, Mexico at Playa Escondida.

At the first rose ceremony, the six men were given a rose to hand out to a woman they’d like to spend more time getting to know in paradise. With an uneven number of men and women in the group, the two women left without roses were immediately sent home heartbroken. Just as potential couples start to pair up, everything changes drastically in the next episode when two new men arrived in paradise with love on their minds. For seven weeks, each episode would alternate between two new men or women joining the cast. New relationships would form, and current ones could end. Every week, the two people who didn't receive a rose would be forced to leave paradise. It's a constant love shuffle where surprise arrivals can rekindle old romances, spark new ones, or splinter existing love.

ABC renewed Bachelor in Paradise for a sixth season on February 5, 2019.[3]

On August 5, 2019, the series was renewed for a seventh season.[4]

Misconduct allegationsEdit

During initial filming of season 4, production was halted due to allegations of sexual misconduct between two contestants—DeMario Jackson and Corinne Olympios.[5] After an internal investigation, it was determined that there was no misconduct and filming resumed shortly after.[6]

After ParadiseEdit

Beginning in 2015, ABC began airing Bachelor in Paradise: After Paradise, a regular weekly live after show. Chris Harrison and Jenny Mollen co-hosted the show starring a celebrity fan and one of the Bachelor in Paradise cast members.[7] Season 2 saw the introduction of a new host, comedian and talk show host, Michelle Collins and also introduced as a co-host is the star from season 17 of The Bachelor, Sean Lowe.[8]
