VALLARTA, MEXICO: The 'Bachelor in Paradise' finale is quickly approaching, which means the drama is gaining steam as well. From the Justin Glaze, Eliza Isichei, and Rodney Mathews love triangle to Victoria Fuller's post-Paradise romance rumors, there's been a lot to keep up with. Unfortunately, the 'Bachelor in Paradise' episode schedule for Season 8 will be disrupted for a short time – but for a very essential cause. Fans of 'Bachelor in Paradise' will have to wait another week to see Justin's response to Eliza leaving Paradise Beach for him in the next episode of the show.

The contestants were moved to tears as they saw Rodney depart the beach with a shattered heart on Monday's episode, which aired on November 7. The upcoming episode promises to continue the aforementioned drama since Episode 11 ended on a cliffhanger with Eliza and the crew heading to Baltimore to find Justin.

Why is 'Bachelor in Paradise' not airing this Tuesday?

Since Tuesday, November 8 is Election Day, there will be no new episode of 'Bachelor in Paradise'. Instead of its regular programming, ABC will replace its evening schedule with the midterm election coverage. According to Deadline, this year's elections are expected to be among the most watched in history. That makes sense if the 'Bachelor in Paradise' timetable adjustment has thrown you for a loop! The beachy Bachelor spinoff has never been shown this late in the year before, so there hasn't been a problem with Election Day broadcasting until now.

When will 'Bachelor in Paradise' 2022 Episode 13 air?

Fortunately, fans won't have to leave the beach for too long. The 'Bachelor in Paradise' schedule for the rest of the season has been posted via the show's official social accounts — and it's evident that things are going to wrap up, even sooner than you may imagine.


The episode's new release date is Monday, November 14, and it will air on ABC at its regular time, 8 pm ET to 10 pm ET. When 'Bachelor in Paradise' was set to air, ABC will telecast 'Your Voice, Your Vote 2022' at 8 pm ET, and coverage will continue until 11 pm ET.

The cast of 'Bachelor in Paradise' will have to deal with the fallout from a nasty love triangle next week (Eliza, Rodney, and Justin). 'The Bachelor' Season 26's Mara Agrait, Lyndsey Windham, and Ency Abedin will join the program in Week 5 and shake up some of the Paradise romances. As hinted in the preview, this might lead to someone quitting the series. Rachel and Gabby from 'The Bachelor 2022' will also feature on Paradise Beach. Justin will be surprised to find Eliza at his door.

There are only two weeks remaining of 'Bachelor in Paradise' Season 8 after Election Day. That means there will be four more episodes in all, including the two-night finale on November 21-22. Of course, if you can't wait for the 'Bachelor in Paradise' Reunion, Reality TV has you covered. Steve has already reported on some of the drama that occurred during the taping. There's a lot, as expected!

'Bachelor in Paradise' airs on ABC on Mondays and Tuesdays at 8 pm ET.
