PAR­ADISE LOST!

In Touch (USA) - - Slip Ups - BY MATT SUL­LI­VAN

You’ve heard of a bait and switch? Well this ro­mance re­al­ity show is a date and switch! Ten sexy sin­gles — in­clud­ing The Bach­e­lorette’s Chase Mc­nary, Bach­e­lor in Par­adise’s Jas­mine Goode, Van­der­pump Rules’ Faith Stow­ers and Big Brother’s Paulie Calafiore — think they’re on a run-of-the-mill dat­ing show where they party to­gether and hook up in a sunny set­ting. And in­deed they are — un­til their exes crash the party! Some exes de­sire a ro­man­tic rekin­dling, oth­ers seek rage-fu­eled re­venge‚ but they all bring the drama! The twist sets Ex (al­ready a smash fran­chise in its in­ter­na­tional in­car­na­tions) apart from sim­i­lar shows. Since the ex fac­tor isn’t im­me­di­ately re­vealed, some cast mem­bers are al­ready con­nect­ing with po­ten­tial new part­ners when the exes show up. (It gets awk­ward!) The exes’ ar­rivals are clev­erly stag­gered, lead­ing to a sense of de­light­ful dread as cast mem­bers don’t know who is go­ing to turn up next. (And yes, some of them have more than one ex rock their world.) We can’t wait to see what hap­pens next!

★★★✩✩

No longer Lil’ — but still a Romeo! Rap­per-ac­tor Romeo Miller hosts the re­al­ity show. It’s rated Ex!
