‘Bachelor In Paradise’: Bartender Wells Adams Says Season 6 Is ‘The Craziest Season To Date’

Bachelor in Paradise starts up August 5, 2019, and already fans are anticipating a drama-filled summer at the beach. According to the Bachelor in Paradise official bartender, Wells Adams, it’s going to be a season unlike any other.  

Adams just returned from Mexico this week. On a recent episode of his podcast, Your Favorite Thing, he teased a few tidbits of what can be expected this season. From what we’ve heard, it sounds wild.

‘Bachelor in Paradise’ bartender Wells Adams says Season 6 is ‘bonkers’

Adams told his co-host, Brandi Cyrus, that he can’t give anything away, but he can confirm that Season 6 takes BIP to a whole new level. 

“I can’t comment on any of this stuff obviously, but we’re in for one hell of a ride, sister,” he told Cyrus. 

“It is bonkers,” he continued. “Like right before I left, I did like all of my coverage and interviews and stuff…they have the normal questions they would ask me, and then at the end the producer was like, ‘is there anything you want to say?’ And I was like, ‘I think this was the craziest season to date!'” 

He said a producer asked him if he was sure since last season featured some pretty hefty drama, including “a male model who was wearing a floral onesie throwing a giant stuffed dog into the ocean” (shoutout to Jordan–hope you’re feeling better after last summer’s heartbreak), but Adams held firm.

“That was not even close to as weird as what happens this year,” Wells said.

What could be weirder than that? Or, rather, who could be weirder than Jordan Kimball? Our money is on John Paul Jones, the quirky chicken nugget lover who got sent home a few episodes ago on Hannah Brown’s season of The Bachelorette

Wells Adams says his scheduled this summer involved a lot of late nights pouring drinks

Adams also spoke about how his Bachelor in Paradise filming schedule was different this year. 

“This year was different,” he said. “In years past, it used to be like, ‘Hey Wells, come in at 11 a.m., and then we’ll get you out by 8, or like ‘Hey Wells, come in at 7 p.m. and we’ll get you out by two in the morning. This year was like, I think we’re only gonna do night shoots for you…so it was like, come in at eight, 8:30, which meant I really only would leave every single night at two, three, or four in the morning, so I couldn’t really sleep at all.”

Adams only working at night doesn’t mean there won’t be day drinking, rest assured. But the fact that the show’s go-to bartender was working late into the night most nights, until 4 or 5 in the morning, sounds like there’s a good amount of late-night drama.
