Bachelor in Paradise Now Has an After-Show, and Yes, We'll Probably Watch

It's called "After Paradise" and we are SO there.

Jessica Roy

Attention, Bachelor Nation: Your wish has been granted.

Did you ever feel you needed more Bachelor in your life? Was there a Bachelor-shaped hole in your viewing schedule? Was the impending two-hour premiere of Bachelor in Paradise not enough for you? Well, we have fantastic news: Clear your schedules on Monday nights, because Bachelor in Paradise is getting an after-show.

A cynic might say we're approaching Bachelor overload. But reality TV is not for cynics, so this is happening.

As one would expect with an after-show, the one-hour talk show will be dedicated to discussing whatever just happened on the previous hour's Bachelor in Paradise. So yes, hookups, backstabbing and druken revelry.

Damn you, Bachelor in Paradise, for keeping us hooked with this crazy new cast

For the uninitiated: Bachelor in Paradise is where rejected suitors from The BachelorandThe Bachelorette go to try and find someone new to make out with in a tropical locale. They frequently succeed.

Naturally, since it is related to The Bachelor, there's lots of alcohol and love triangles and drama and fighting. Also known as perfect reality television -- and ideal fodder for a an after-show. Frankly, we're surprised they didn't think of it sooner.

After Paradise will be hosted by Bachelor host Chris Harrison and Bachelor super-fan Jenny Mollen, who fans will recognize "from her prolific live tweeting during past seasons of The Bachelor and The Bachelorette," according to ABC's press release. (She's also married to Jason Biggs.)

The talk show will premiere on Monday, Aug. 3 at 9/8c on ABC, after the two-part Bachelor in Paradise premiere ends.

Will you tune in for After Paradise?
