ABC crushed my trashy TV loving heart when Bachelor Pad was canceled last summer. I mean, the only reason to watch Bachelor and Bachelorette, which are both beyond stale, the past several years was to anticipate who will end up on the sleaze fest called Bachelor Pad

On Friday, ABC shared its plan to launch a new Bachelor spinoff, Bachelor in Paradise, this summer. Paradise?!? Like Love in the Wild or Paradise Hotel or Temptation Island? I'm listening, ABC… 


Like Bachelor Pad, Bachelor in Paradise will feature fan favorites and villains looking for fifteen more minutes a second chance at reality TV love. Unlike the Pad, the contestants will forgo the disease-laden Bachelor mansion and stay in an "isolated romantic paradise" location. 

Chris Harrison will host the six-episode series. There will be rose ceremonies, however, ABC did not reveal what role the roses will play. We also don't know if there will be a weekly elimination or a cash prize at the end. 

ABC told EW:  “The romantic dating series will feature new twists, shocking surprises, unexpected guests and some of the most unlikely relationships in Bachelor history, plus all the usual romance, drama, and tears we’ve come to expect from the Bachelor franchise. It all comes together in the romantic TV event of the summer.”

Will Bachelor in Paradise be a suitable replacement for Bachelor Pad?  It is too soon to tell – I don't want more amazing journeys and "here for the right reasons" and roses. I want drunken shenanigans and "stab you in the back for $250,000" and hookups. #SorryNotSorry
