We teased yesterday that ABC was going to be airing the first preview to “Bachelor in Paradise” during the episode of Andi Dorfman’s season of “The Bachelorette” Monday night, and now we’ve had the opportunity to actually check it out.
So what do we think here at the end of the day? The simple answer is that this is a trainwreck of both the worst and best kind at the same time. You have people terrified of being single forever, people who just want airtime, and then people who have already been on every version of the show known to man. We’re just waiting for the moment that Chris Bukowski crashes this, even though he was not a part of the first cast list released earlier this month. Remember here that neither was Michelle Money, and she is shown off in this preview. It’s almost official that nobody has an idea of what in the world is actually going on with this show.
Sarah Herron is one of the other extremely notable contestants, given that there were many that wanted to see her end up as “The Bachelorette” last summer rather than Desiree Hartsock. Most of the other contestants, at least for now, are not particularly notable. There are still some from Andi’s season on the male side who could bring a little more interest to the proceedings, especially if Marquel is one of them after he got sent home on Monday night’s episode.
We are excited for this show for some unusual reason, and we are still trying to figure out just what that is. We’ll continue to have more and more news on the show until it gets close to the big premiere.
