Summer is swiftly coming, which means our favorite autumn and midseason programs will be wrapping up shortly to make room for our summer favorites!
While there are a few excellent scripted series to look forward to this summer, including a few CW faves, Summer 2022 promises to offer a wave of spectacular reality shows, including new seasons of The Bachelorette and Bachelor in Paradise.
Unfortunately, we’ll have to wait longer for the shows to arrive on ABC’s schedule. The network has revealed that The Bachelorette season 19 and Bachelor in Paradise season 8 will not be airing in May. Instead, viewers of ABC’s long-running reality dating series will have to wait longer for their dose.
Who Would Host Bachelor In Paradise?
Chris Harrison will not be hosting Paradise since he and the band parted ways last year. Jesse Palmer has stepped in to host all of 2022’s Bachelor editions, including Clayton’s season earlier this year and Gabby Windey and Rachel Recchia’s Bachelorette season. “Sources suggest the hosting structure for future seasons of Bachelor In Paradise, which Harrison headed, is still in change,” Variety wrote when Palmer was confirmed as host last autumn.
The concept and tone of Paradise are significantly different from Bachelor and Bachelorette, which is perhaps why affable former participant Wells Adams was elevated to the master of ceremonies in the last season of Paradise.
Also, why Lil Jon, David Spade, Titus Burgess, and Lance Bass were brought in. (You guys, I’m still not over it.) Wells has shown interest in hosting the whole program, but it would be difficult to elevate him to host of Paradise and then demote him a year later if Palmer or another presenter is named the full-time franchise host.
Is Bachelor in Paradise Canceled?
No! Fans worried that turmoil was developing in Paradise for a long time before the April 7 renewal confirmation. One of the reasons BiP was assumed to be RIP? “Canceled?” said executive producer Mike Fleiss after fan account @TheBachBabes tweeted about “rumors that Paradise would be canceled.” There’s no way!! #BachelorinParadiseforever!” However, he then removed his post, leaving viewers even more perplexed.
Reality TV spoiler expert In October 2021, Steve joined those debating the franchise’s future, stating, “This is simply a prediction on my side, but I have a feeling Paradise could be done.” It didn’t do well last season, and the format is old and stale, and… well, that’s just my guess.” “If they decide to preserve it,” he said, “I believe you’ll need to make some substantial changes to the format.”
“Production has been asking around and started early interviews about participants for Paradise, so they wouldn’t be doing that if there was no show,” he wrote in March 2022, denying the TikTok claims about Bachelor in Paradise being canceled. I’ve heard that Bachelorette will begin on July 11, followed by Paradise, which will broadcast soon after, only a bit later than in previous years.”
On ‘Bachelor In Paradise,’ Who Would Be The Contestants?
Clayton’s roster had plenty of potential Paradise-rs since the participants who chose to go to Mexico usually made a splash (geddit? ), for better or harmful. It’s easy to see Shanae Ankney, Serene Russell, Teddi Wright, Sarah Hamrick, and Mara Agrait on the beach. Joe Coleman, Brandon Jones, Rodney Mathews, and her so-called “villains” Peter Izzo and Jamie Skaar will most certainly be requested to appear from Michelle’s far more respectable season.
On the “Talking It Out With Bachelor Nation” podcast, Andrew Spencer mentioned that he could be traveling to the beach. “I have not met Teddi yet, but I’ve heard fantastic things about her, obviously,” Andrew answered when his cousin and fellow Bachelor star Clay Harbor tweeted that Andrew and Teddi should date.
If she or I travel to Paradise, she’ll be one of the females I’m looking forward to seeing on the beach.” “I’d want to see Teddi, Serene, and Eliza on the beach and Jasmine from Peter’s season, who just turned single,” he said. Meanwhile, when asked whether he’d be joining the cast, Ben Smith from Tayshia’s season said, “Nah, girl,” despite reports that Teddi was interested in him. Because you know I’ll be refreshing my Google alert, I’ll keep this post updated, so check back for updates.
When Will Bachelor In Paradise Return?
Bachelor in Paradise usually debuts in August, followed by The Bachelorette in May or June. Because Rachel and Gabby’s Bachelorette season premiere on July 11, 2022, Paradise will be postponed this year. Furthermore, the guys from that season would most likely not have enough time to begin shooting Bachelor in Paradise in Mexico due to the timetable adjustment.
