'Bachelor in Paradise': New 'Bachelor' spinoff will feature show favorites

See also

"Bachelor in Paradise" is a new "Bachelor" spinoff that is similar to the canceled "Bachelor Pad" with a fair amount of surprises and twists. On March 21, Us Weekly reported that the new show will feature plenty of your old favorites -- and some of the people that you love to hate -- as they all travel to a tropical location to hook-up and find "love."

"The romantic dating series will feature new twists, shocking surprises, unexpected guests and some of the most unlikely relationships in Bachelor history. Plus all the usual romance, drama and tears we've come to expect from the Bachelor franchise. It all comes together in the romantic television event of the summer," ABC told Entertainment Weekly (via Us Weekly).

"Bachelor in Paradise" is really all about the hook-ups and there will be hook-ups. There will also be a customary rose ceremony which will work relatively the same except -- with an unknown twist in regards to sending someone home.

The new show will begin airing after Andi Dorfman's season of "The Bachelorette." It will air over a six-week period, likely a trial for ABC to see if the show picks up steam. Many fans were sad that "Bachelor Pad" was canceled but it sounds like this new show could be even better. Will you tune in? Do you think the show will be successful?

"Bachelor in Paradise" will be hosted by (who else) Chris Harrison.
