Shock sexy BACHELOR SPIN-OFF
FORMER CONTESTANTS WILL RETURN TO SCREENS FOR THE FIRST SEASON OF AUSTRALIAN BACHELOR IN PARADISE CAST REVEALED
They all left The Bachelor or The
Bachelorette with broken hearts, but now the most memorable contestants from the popular Channel Ten shows will get a second shot at love.
New Idea can exclusively reveal that a group of unluckyin-love former contenders will travel to a romantic paradise hoping to turn a potential summer fling into the real thing.
Over the course of the series – which has been running for four seasons in the US – crews will follow cast members including Nikki Gogan, Keira Maguire and Sasha Mielczarek as they explore new relationships.
‘It is not known exactly how many other contestants have been approached, but due to the lack of success in matching couples there are a lot to choose from,’ an insider at Ten spills.
‘Producers are busy negotiating fees for the cast, as many of them believe they are worth a lot more than has been budgeted.’
Perth local Nikki, who was the runner-up on Richie Strahan’s season last year, was snapped filming a top-secret promotion said to be for Bachelor In Paradise in Sydney last week.
‘They were filming on Palm Beach, the same place she was taken by helicopter to have a beach date with Richie Strahan,’ the source says.
Contestants who may also join the cast include Zilda Williams, Sarah-mae Louise Amey, Elora Murger, Leah Costa and Michael Turnbull.
‘If Sarah-mae and Sasha both agree to go on the show that will create an interesting dynamic and possible sparks given the fallout between Sasha and Sam Frost, who remains good friends with Sarah-mae,’ the source explains.
‘It is believed Alex Nation was approached but talks fell over due to her new relationship with Maegan Luxa.’
With Fiji tipped as the top location for filming, the source confirms Osher Gunsberg will host the new format.
The news comes just months after New Idea broke the news Keira and Sam Johnston were set to appear on the US version of the show.
The villainous pair were ultimately cut from the cast after filming was shut down due to an alleged sexual misconduct scandal.
