FORMER 'BACHELOR' AND 'BACHELORETTE' CAST MEMBERS TRAVEL TO PARADISE IN SEARCH OF A SECOND CHANCE AT LOVE, ON ABC'S 'BACHELOR IN PARADISE'
Season 3 Alumni Carly and Evan Tie the knot in Paradise Tuesday, August 15
"Episode 401a" - Looking for a second chance at love on the fourth season premiere of the highly anticipated "Bachelor in Paradise," beginning MONDAY, AUGUST 14 (8:00-10:01 p.m. EDT) on the ABC Television Network, the cast arrives one by one to their own private paradise in the gorgeous town of Sayulita, located in Vallarta-Nayarit, Mexico. The cast comprised of former fan favorites and controversial characters from "The Bachelor" franchise live together along the shores of Paradise beach, share exotic dates, and explore new romances, all for another chance to find love. They all left "The Bachelor" or "The Bachelorette" with broken hearts, but now they'll travel to a romantic paradise, hoping to turn a potential summer fling into the real thing.
One of the most shocking and dramatic seasons in Bachelor Nation history begins with host Chris Harrison explaining that production had to be suspended. Later, a beloved bartender from seasons past tearfully tells the new arrivals news that will change Paradise forever. Later, Harrison announces a new twist that poses a threat to the men. One distressed damsel is crushed when the dude she finds dreamy is asked out on a date by another woman to whom she had previously confessed her crush. One bikini-boasting babe finds herself torn between Santa Claus and a penguin. Meanwhile, an unfortunate female receives some sad news that sends her packing for home, with the hope of returning. But will the boy she bonded with be able to find a way of staying in Paradise without her rose? Two runners-up from previous seasons hook up for a date that involves some wet and wild fun in the sun. But by episode's end, will Paradise be closed for good, or will one of the best parts of summer be saved?
"Episode 401b" - In the next episode that airs TUESDAY, AUGUST 15 (8:00-10:01 p.m. EDT), Carly and Evan exchange marriage vows in Paradise before an assemblage of their family and friends, including many of our Bachelor favorites. Then, it's time for the tears to flow, including from the bride and the groom... and Ashley I. too! Later, the cast returns to Paradise and sits down with host Chris Harrison for a thought-provoking conversation about the encounter that caused all of the controversy. Once the show resumes, the cast tries to pick up where they left off. Watch one couple's relationship heat up, while the production time out changed the momentum for others. Meanwhile, one desperate and lonely lady wants a date card to help her get something new started, but is disappointed when it goes to someone she thinks doesn't need it. Will this date mark the beginning of what could be our next Carly and Evan?
