'Bachelor in Paradise' Season 8: Jesse Palmer becomes bearer of bad news for some happy couples in Mexico
SAYULITA, MEXICO: The huge twist in 'Bachelor in Paradise' Season 8 has been unveiled. At the end of the season finale of 'The Bachelorette' on Tuesday, September 13, host Jesse Palmer released a brand-new 'BiP' teaser that confirmed the much-discussed bombshell.
Despite speculations that ABC was about to cancel this chapter of the franchise in spring, the network finally chose to continue 'BiP' for an eighth sensational season. This season will broadcast later than in previous years, but one thing is certain: We're returning to Mexico, and everyone will have a second — or third, or fourth, or fifth — shot at said love and/or Instagram followers. How can ABC top 2021's season, which was low on viewing but high on drama? Following the conclusion of 'The Bachelorette,' ABC released a new trailer for the upcoming eighth season of 'Bachelor in Paradise,' which premieres on September 27.
The promo featured 'Bachelorette' star Rachel Recchia visiting Mexico and fawning over a man. "He's so great. He really is," said Rachel, who confessed on Tuesday's finale that she broke up with her fiancee Tino Franco after he kissed another woman and then slipped away with Aven Jones. "I'm like going to cry because I'm so happy," she added.
The preview also featured Shanae Ankney sobbing about juggling two guys, and a reference to Paradise's first threesome. "It's like geometry beach," Johnny DePhillipo remarked of the season's "cross-pollination." To top it off, Aaron falls in love after watching one lady twerk, and Logan calls Lace the wrong name. And, of course, some genuine affection. Michael Allio tells Sierra Jackson, "I felt numb, and you're bringing me back to life."
As the preview unfolds, Jill "feels so unwanted," Aaron is fighting with Genevieve, Brandon wishes to leave, and one lady shouts, "You want to go toe-to-toe with me? See what happens, b**ch."
What is this season's most shocking twist?
Jesse adds in the trailer that a "shocking twist divides the beach" before telling the 'Bachelor in Paradise' women, "Ladies, go pack your bags, you'll be leaving paradise immediately." It has been revealed that more women are arriving, while the women who were already on the beach were being ordered to leave. "The girls are going to come back, and some relationships are going to make it and some are not," one guy says in the video.
One of the women leaving, appear to grasp this as they emotionally collect their belongings before yelling, "F**k you, Jesse Palmer." This plot surprise has been spoken about for weeks. Wells Adams, resident bartender of 'BiP', teased ET earlier about the show thinking "outside the box" and "tried some new things" this season. "From my standpoint behind the bar it was amazing, from the people on the beach's standpoint not so much, they hated it," Wells said. On the surprise twist, he said, "We tried some different things and brought in, I think, a record number of people onto the beach this season." The rest of the dramatic promo features the arrival of an ambulance, an unexpected twist, some wonderful love tales and yes lots of loud and raucous drama.
Season 8 of 'Bachelor in Paradise' will begin on ABC on Tuesday, September 27.
