Series info and concept
Bachelor in Paradise is a US reality competition series that ran on ABC for two seasons since 2014. It is executive produced by Mike Fleiss and Martin Hilton, and produced by Next Entertainment and Warner Horizon Television. The show is a spin-off of The Bachelor and Bachelorette and features contestants who have previously appeared on the two series. It is hosted by Chris Harrison.
Men and women who have participated in The Bachelor and The Bachelorette are sent off to an isolated tropical island, so they can have another attempt at finding love, or at least its semblance, in this exhibitionist fashion – right under television cameras. There are rose ceremonies, where participants may or may not receive a rose from a member of the opposite sex, and every week the two cast members left without flowers are forced to leave the program. There are also new cast members arriving on the island every week, which often reshuffles the existing relationships, rekindles old ones or just complicates things.
Ratings and renewal
The series was renewed for a third season, set to air in the summer of 2016. After all, it does seem like a perfect summer series – tropical island, romance and all. The second season`s ratings were excellent, even though the chapter launched to less-than-impressive numbers, it built up its momentum, and the August 24, 2015 episode became the highest-rated in the series` history, with 5.5 million viewers, according to Variety, so the renewal is far from surprising. Stay tuned for a release date!
