Ten announces Bachelor In Paradise is coming in 2018

Network Ten has announced a new show for 2018, Bachelor In Paradise.

The new short-run series will feature former fan favourites from previous seasons of The Bachelor Australia and The Bachelorette Australia.

Set in a romantic tropical destination overseas, Bachelor In Paradise will follow the contestants as they build new relationships, fall in love or face heartbreak.

Ten has confirmed the series will be hosted by Osher Günsberg, the previous host of The Bachelor Australia and The Bachelorette Australia.

Rumours of the show’s imminent announcement started swirling after Pedestrian TV noticed the creation of a Twitter account under the handle BachParadiseAU, which the pop culture site understood to be created by a member of the Ten team.

The announcement of the new series follows the success of the new season of The Bachelorette Australia, which has seen a television audience increase of more than 40% compared with the 2016 season and ranks number one in its time slot in 25 to 54s, under 55s and total people. Episode two of The Bachelorette Australia beat the Game of Thrones finale in online catch-up records.

Network Ten chief content officer Beverley McGarvey, said: “The Bachelor Australia and The Bachelorette Australia are proven success stories on all screens and the most talked about television shows in Australia.

“Bachelor In Paradise is the perfect complement to, and extension of, those shows. It will give viewers everything they love about The Bachelor Australia and The Bachelorette Australia, including familiar faces, spectacular dates, explosive rose ceremonies, drama, romance, adventure, laughter and – of course – love.”

It has not yet been announced which former contestants will appear on the show.
