Bachelor In Paradise

Here’s Absolutely EVERYTHING We Know About ‘Bachelor In Paradise’

Reality TV in 2018 is looking better than ever, with the return of The Bachy and even an Aussie version of Love Island on the way, there’s going to be plenty of trash to feed your guilty pleasures. We are particularly psyched for the Bachelor In Paradise, which we tip will hit our screens in the first half of 2018. We. Can’t. Wait.

The show is promising to bring together the all-stars from past seasons, and we just know it’ll deliver some tasty drama for us to obsess over. Familiar singles roasting in the sun and bottomless booze is sure to bring carnage.

While it was confirmed in October the series would go ahead on Channel Ten, there has been very little further deets on what exactly we can expect. We’ve filtered through the interwebs for as much info as possible on next year’s Bachelor In Paradise and here’s what we know.

Here’s absolutely EVERYTHING we know:

Where is it being filmed?

Several sources have reported the reality series will be filmed in Fiji. New Idea has even specified that the mayhem will all go down at Mango Mango Bay Resort.

It doesn’t look too shabby.

Who will host?

The Bachelor puppeteer himself – Osher Gunsberg – will host the spin-off series. Yaas! Osh will kill it! Meanwhile Bachelorette Sophie Monk will be nowhere to be seen. She’s offish cut all ties to Ten and will be becoming her very own version of Osher on Love Island.

Which ex-bachys will star?

With a bevy of conflicting reports floating all over the place, it’s difficult to nail down exactly who will be on BIP. However, these are the bachys all 100 percent confirmed to be heading to paradise:

These ex-bachys are all heavily rumoured to have also touched down in Fiji for the reality show:

While unconfirmed, another broken-hearted bachy was spotted heading to Fiji.

Coming into this I never thought I'd have the opportunity to get to know such a warm hearted, down to earth, hilarious woman let alone fall in love with her. This journey has been the most challenging & exciting in my life so far. Through all the highs & lows all I wanted was to be true to myself. Falling in love is such an incredible experience & really is the best feeling in the world. My heart will heal & I wouldn't change a single moment. Sophie, thank you. You've helped me to learn so much about myself. Opening up to you & sharing my feelings just felt so natural from our first encounter. I wish you all the happiness in the world, you deserve nothing but love & laughter in your life. @sophiemonk #BacheloretteAU . . . #BacheloretteAU #bachelorette #thebachelorette #thebachelor #bachelor #networkten #ten #TV #fiji #luxury #realitytv #finale #instadaily #instagood #smile #love #sophiemonk

Who won’t be there?

On the flip-side, bachy faves Sasha Mielczarek, Richie Strahan and Nikki Gogan have confirmed that they will not be heading to paradise. Bummer!

When can we expect to see it?

Soon! The series is already filming, with many of the bachys mentioned above already in Fiji.

Tara even posted a cheeky pic from the BIP pool.

So while the network has given a vague AF start date of 2018, we reckon it’ll be sooner than expected and will air prior to The Bachelor and The Bachelorette. To seize on ratings, the series could likely be pitted against Channel Nine’s Married At First Sight, which will hopefully start around March again this year.

We’ll keep you posted, as we live our lives vicariously through these hopeless hopeful singles.

Remember: eat, sleep, BIP, repeat.
