BACH­E­LOR IN PAR­ADISE

Chan­nel Chat

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.

THEY’RE BACK: Past con­tes­tants who were un­lucky in love re­unite in Fiji for an­other chance.
