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."

After one of the toughest seasons in the show's history — and certainly the most tragic — The Bachelorette has ended with a happy engagement.
The last suitor to exit the limo on the first night, Josh caught Andi's attention immediately, but she remained skeptical of him because he was a former pro athlete. Still, the Tampa native remained a frontrunner and eventually won her over. In fact, she was so smitten that she dumped Nick the morning of the final rose ceremony. After Andi was finally able to profess her love, Josh got down on one knee, proposed and she said, "Yes!"
Their engagement was just revealed on The Bachelorette, but Andi and Josh already have babies on the brain!
"I mean, I would have [had] a baby yesterday!" Josh told TVGuide.com Tuesday after the finale. "We'll wait until she's ready and then we'll start popping them out one after another."

Another Bachelorette season has ended in an engagement!
At the start of the two-hour finale, Andi's family joined her in the Dominican Republic to meet the remaining men, Nick and Josh. Nick met the group first where he was surprisingly reserved. It wasn't until his time with Andi's mom that the Midwesterner opened up about his love for her daughter. "I love that girl so much," he said. "There will be no one, no thing that's a bigger priority to me than your daughter." As for his conversation with Andi's tough dad Hy, Nick asked for his blessing and permission to marry her and Hy ultimately lent his support saying, "If you two choose each other that would be wonderful."
