Some of The Bachelor's biggest stars and villains are back. They all left The Bachelor or The Bachelorette with broken hearts, but now they know what it really takes to find love, and on Bachelor in Paradise they'll get a second chance to find their soul mates. Contestants will live together in an "isolated romantic paradise" in Mexico and explore new romantic relationships.
ABC announced today that Bachelor in Paradise has been picked up for a fifth season and will return in under two months.
The reality spin-off series, which features contestants from previous seasons of The Bachelor and The Bachelorette looking for love in a tropical resort setting, has remained a solid summer staple for the network.
The continued success of The Bachelor franchise, which began 16 years ago, has resulted in a number of recent offshoots. 2010's Bachelor Pad was the first entry to air in the summer months, lasting three seasons before being replaced by Bachelor in Paradise in 2014. And earlier this year The Bachelor Winter Games joined the roster, airing for two short weeks during the Winter Olympics.
Season 5 of Bachelor in Paradise premieres on Tuesday, August 7 at 8:00pm.
