BACHELOR IN PARADISE
SHOW: Bachelor in Paradise CHANNEL: WIN TIME: Various times, weekly
FAMILIAR faces are in abundance under the Fijian sky this year as past bachelor and bachelorette contestants return to the TV for another chance at finding love.
Bachelor in Paradise is a spin-off series from The Bachelor that is appearing on Australian TV for the first time as an adaptation of the U.S version that premiered in 2014.
Osher Günsberg returns to host the antics of 30 contestants as they form relationships and alliances on the beaches of Fiji.
As a strong lover of past dramatics of the bachelor and bachelorette series, Bachelor in Paradise is proving to be no less exciting, shocking, and is producing a lot more eyerolls and frustrated sighs on my part.
Each week, there is an uneven number of men to women, meaning a rose ceremony sends someone, or many people, back into the real world who don’t receive a rose.
The motives behind some contestants are quick to pick up, if they form relationships purely to get a rose and stay in the game, or if there are genuine connections between contestants.
As everyone will be, I’m already invested in a pairing that seemed unlikely at the beginning of the show, but is now giving me hope.
A past favourite from Matty J’s season; Tara Pavlovic, has formed a strong connection with Sophie Monk’s season contestant; Sam Cochrane, bringing laughs, comedy and joy to the screen.
I’m very excited to keep watching.
