Bachelor in Paradise Host Chris Harrison: You Will Be Addicted

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."

The Bachelorette Host on Eric's Final Episode: It's Hard to Know the Right Thing to Do

This week's emotionally charged two-part episode of The Bachelorette wrapped up by discussing late contestant Eric Hill following his exit from the show.

On Monday's episode, Eric and Andi got into a confrontation about their relationship not moving forward after their initial one-on-one date. Andi ultimately decided it was best for Eric leave prior to the rose ceremony, but tragically that was the final conversation they'd have before his unexpected death in a paragliding accident in April.

The Bachelorette's Chris Harrison: This Season Felt So Much Easier with Andi

Coming off of Juan Pablo's turbulent season of The Bachelor, it seemed that The Bachelorette could only go up. But Chris Harrison says his experience with Andi and the newest batch of hopefuls far surpassed his expectations.

"I don't know if it's because we had such a rough go on Juan Pablo's season ... but when you're with someone who's a delight and also really nice and kind and grateful it makes a huge difference," Harrison tells TVGuide.com. "Everything really permeates from the [star], and it's a ripple effect to the camera guys, producers, etc. When you're going to work for 24 hours straight and haven't showered and are in a jungle like these people do for this show, if you're doing it for someone really grateful it makes a big difference and makes the whole season better and it really comes through on air. It felt so much easier with her."
