Bachelor In Paradise to premiere on 9 April

The first iteration of the Bachelor franchise to hit screens this year will be Bachelor In Paradise, with Ten announcing the spin-off will premier 9 April.

The second season of the show, based on a US format, will see several ex-contestants from the franchise return for a second (or third, or fourth) shot at happily ever after.

Host Osher Günsberg

Host Osher Günsberg returns for another year at the head of the franchise and will be bringing Bachelor In Paradise to audiences three nights a week.

With Nine’s reality juggernaut Married At First Sight entering its final week next week, and Ten’s Dancing With The Stars set to wind up soon, all eyes will be on Bachelor In Paradise to see if it can help Ten to a much-needed ratings win.

Last year’s premiere landed to 750,000 metro viewers, making it the most-watched non-news show for the night, although it didn’t rate as well as stablemate The Bachelor.

Bachelor In Paradise performed steadily over the season and the finale which saw Sam Cochrane propose to Tara Pavlovic brought in 774,000 metro viewers.

The Bachelor for 2019 has already been announced and Ten is heading back to basics after the critical response to 2018’s Honey Badger season.

The Bachelorette star hasn’t yet been announced.

Aside from potential late entrants, the majority of the Bachelor In Paradise cast has already been revealed, as Ten attemps to drum up anticipation for the launch.

Bachelor In Paradise will be premiering on Ten and the WIN Network in the regions.
