Bachelor in Paradise Host Chris Harrison: You Will Be Addicted

Bachelor in Paradise

Summer may be winding down, but Monday nights are just heating up with the premiere of ABC's newest reality show, Bachelor in Paradise.

The latest spin-off from the Bachelor/Bachelorette franchise, this seven-episode series features past Bachelor and Bachelorette contestants living in an isolated, romantic Mexican locale, where they'll take another shot at finding love. The premiere (8/7c) begins with the arrival of eight women and six men, and after a series of dates, each man chooses one woman at the first rose ceremony. But while two ladies leave by the end of the opener, new cast members arrive to shake things up each week.

Meet the cast of Bachelor in Paradise

"With Bachelor Pad, you got caught up in the game, so that's why we tore it apart and retooled it," host Chris Harrison tells TVGuide.com. "It became about money, and our show and franchise was never about that. So I think people will love that Bachelor in Paradise is about what makes The Bachelor and The Bachelorette great — only it's not just [one guy or one girl]. It's that times 10, which leads to love triangles, drama and amazing dates. If you love Bachelor or Bachelorette you won't not be addicted to it."
