Even before Andi Dorfman stars as The Bachelorette 2014 for Season 10 of the hit ABC show, another spinoff of the popular Bachelor franchise is garnering viewer interest.
Bachelor in Paradise, which will have a cast made up of past Bachelor and Bachelorette fan favorites, will air over the summer as a six-episode mini-season. Get more details here below the jump!
Basically, a number of reasonably attractive men and women will be put up at a beautiful resort in a remote location and forced to interact with no one but each other in the hopes that relationships form. There will no doubt be a competitive spin, and we believe the rose ceremony will play a role, but we aren't sure how Bachelor in Paradise eliminations will play out just yet.
An ABC press release concerning the show outlined the main features of the show, saying, "Contestants will live together in an isolated romantic paradise and, over the course of six episodes, we’ll follow these former bachelors and bachelorettes as they explore new romantic relationships. America will watch as they fall in love or go through renewed heartbreak.
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."
The premise reminds us of Paradise Hotel, a Fox reality show that first aired over a decade ago, but ran for a second season in 2008.
One thing is certain: many ABC fans are getting excited for a sizzling summer of made-for-TV love stories. Twitter user Rachel W. tweeted her enthusiasm on April 1, saying, "I'm so excited to see @AndiDorfman's season of #TheBachelorette - hurry up May!!!"
Will you be watching The Bachelorette Season 10 (starring Bachelor 2014 alum Andi Dorfman) when it kicks off this May, or the new summer spin-off that will follow?
