Here’s your first look at the cast of brand new The Bachelor spin-off, Bachelor in Paradise! The reality stars had just returned home, emotions clearly still reeling, when I scored this exclusive…
Fan favorites like Michelle Money, Jesse Kovacs and Lucy Aragon were shipped off to Tulum, Mexico for another shot at finding love. But did they only discover more heartbreak? Roll the video to see which former Bachelor winner/notorious secret-spiller says the shoot was a “nightmare.” The words “awkward” “uncomfortable” and “rollercoaster” are also used to describe the experience. Plus, host Chris Harrison explains why the incestuous franchise warranted another series.
I can’t wait to see the drama that caused these reality TV vets so much turmoil. Getting paid to hook-up in paradise sounds more like a dream than a nightmare to most of us. One cast member described the daily ritual this way: They get up, go to the pool and drink, do sit-down interviews with producers for three to four hours, then go back to the pool and drink more. What’s uncomfortable about that?!
The Bachelorette stars Ali Fedotowsky and DeAnna Pappas and their men also chatted with me. It all went down at the Love Your Butt colon cancer fundraiser in Hollywood. Michelle Money’s father passed away from the disease while she was appearing on The Bachelor, inspiring Harrison to create the Chris4Life Colon Cancer Foundation.
