The ‘Bachelor in Paradise’ promo trailer teases 5 new cast members
Five new familiar faces pop up in the Bachelor in Paradise trailer released on Aug. 2. At the start of the preview, Chelsea Vaughn from Matt James’ season of The Bachelor is spotted laughing in the background as Abigail leans in to kiss one of the women during a group activity. Later, Joe Park, aka Dr. Joe from Tayshia Adams and Clark Crawley’s Bachelorette season, is dancing. It also looks like he’s holding a date card.
Meanwhile, Demi Burnett from Bachelor in Paradise Season 6 stops by. She also seems to spark something with Kenny. Then Thomas Jacobs from Katie’s season of The Bachelorette appears. But it doesn’t look like things go well. In the clip, Thomas is speaking to a brunette woman, and he breaks down in tears.
Finally, Bachelor in Paradise highlights Demar Jackson from Clare and Tayshia’s season. But does the contestant come in at the wrong time? Demar’s brief appearance happens immediately after a BIP producer tells the whole cast it’s “no longer safe” to stay on the show. The contestant is also seen with his fellow castmates as they seemingly leave Mexico.
Now, is Paradise ending earlier than expected? We’ll just have to wait and see.
When does ‘Bachelor in Paradise’ Season 7 start in 2021?
Mark your calendars, everyone. Bachelor in Paradise Season 7 will start on Monday, Aug. 16, at 8 p.m. ET. The two-hour premiere will also be released one week after Katie’s Bachelorette finale. So there won’t be a break between seasons.
Meanwhile, ABC has already released the synopsis for the BIP premiere. According to the press release, Abigail will receive the first date card. Then Maurissa and Connor will see some sparks. Joe A. from Becca Kufrin’s Bachelorette season will also find himself in a love triangle right off the bat.
