Chris Harrison is frequently known to proclaim things as the “best ever.” This season of Bachelor in Paradise is no different.
“It’s the best season we’ve ever had,” Harrison said on the Bachelor Party podcast about Demi Burnett‘s storyline. Harrison said Demi’s story is fascinating, and he’s extremely proud of the season, despite Dean Unglert‘s “atrocious” mustache. Regarding Demi, he said he’s “proud” of her “and the young lady she has in her life.”
The longtime host also addressed the fight seen in the promo and said it was “an unfortunate incident that got out of hand.”
In a press release, ABC teased the sparks fly fast for Blake Horstmann who knew some of his costars before heading to Paradise. But Hannah Goodwin and Caelynn Miller-Keyes have their hopes dashed when Blake lands on another woman. And then there’s his ex-girlfriend Kristina Schulman. Yeah, it’s complicated.
The two-night premiere continues on Tuesday, Aug. 6 with more drama between Blake, Kristina and Caelynn. Three women head home at the rose ceremony, resulting in a last-minute scramble at the cocktail party.
Meet the cast below.
Bachelor in Paradise premieres Monday, Aug. 5 at 8 p.m. on ABC.
