Now that Hannah Brown‘s quest for love (and windmill sex) is over, it’s time to focus on what’s really important: we are about to be given the gift that is Bachelor in Paradise!
Back for a sixth season, ‘BIP’ brings together male and female rejects from past seasons of The Bachelorette and The Bachelor,puts them on a beach, and pumps them full of alcohol, sunlight and the false hope that they aren’t destined to be Forever Alone. The previous seasons of the show have produced plenty of drama and dysfunctional couples (and a surprising number of marriages)!
For Season 6, the producers have gathered an assortment of the most-dramatic, most-ridiculous and most-fame-hungry former cast members. Once again, Chris Harrison will be back to host this tropical trainwreck.
