'Bachelor in Paradise' coming to ABC this summer

See also

Last year “Bachelor” fans were bummed when ABC didn't renew “Bachelor Pad” for the summer line-up. It was a favorite among many, some even preferred it to the other shows in the franchise. According to a March 21 report from Entertainment Weekly, ABC will be bringing “Bachelor in Paradise” to the summer line-up for 2014. It is almost the same scenario as “Bachelor Pad,” but with a better location and some new twists.

Some of the fan-favorites from previous seasons of both the “Bachelor” and “Bachelorette” will be returning along with some of the villains. Since news broke about “Bachelor in Paradise,” fans have been talking about who they would like to see on the show. Some names that have been thrown around include Courtney Robertson, Erica Rose, William Holman, and Graham Bunn.

The official cast probably won't be announced until close to the air date. Right now there isn't an official premiere date noted, but speculation is it will begin sometime in July after the “Bachelorette” ends. Fans are looking forward to a reboot of “Bachelor Pad.” It looks like “Bachelor in Paradise” will be another big hit from the “Bachelor” franchise.
