After Clayton Echard’s season of The Bachelor and then the dramatic journey of Gabby Windey and Rachel Rechhia as The Bachelorette(s), it’s time for Bachelor in Paradise. The show will premiere on Tuesday, Sept. 27 (8 PM ET) on ABC, but you can also watch it on fuboTV (free-trial in the US).
For this season, 20 contestants of previous Bachelor and Bachelorette seasons will meet in one luxury resort for another chance at love (or fame). With Jesse Palmer as host and Wells Adams as “the” bartender, the show is set to be as chaotic as ever.
Some of the familiar faces at the beach are Teddi Wright, Shanae Ankney, from Clayton’s season; Logan Palmer and Johnny DePhillippo from Gabby and Rachel’s season. According to some reports, filming started in June. But, where was Season 8 filmed?
