Season 7 BiP premiere date and potential cast
Good news Bachelor Nation: despite a global pandemic and a slew of controversies, Bachelor in Paradise will return on August 16 on ABC.
There have been some rumors and hints from production and former contestants about who will star on the show. In January, ABC exec Rob Mills confirmed that Joe Park, MD, from Tayshia Adams’ and Clare Crawley’s season of The Bachelorette, will be heading to BiP.
“We’ve got ourselves a vaccinated Paradisian!!” Mills wrote.
ABC is “hoping to get Blake Horstmann and Tia Booth” to join the cast according to rumors.
Former Bachelorette, Becca Kufrin commented on an Apple Podcast that she wouldn’t mind co-hosting on the show. “I would do Paradise if I could be Wells [Adams] or a sidekick to Wells…Wells is awesome at what he does, right? But he’s not a single woman who can really comment on the guys running down the beach or the women in their cute bikinis.”
She added, “I could be the girl they could come to for advice that they probably don’t need or want, but it could be a fun time. I heard that the shrimp tacos there are amazing.”
