The Bachelor in Paradise Premiers at Boaties & You’re Invited

Wednesday March 21st, 2018

Gather your besties and Bachy fanatics and head to The Boatbuilder’s Yard in South Wharf this Sunday, March 25 for the premiere of Bachelor in Paradise.

Relocate from your couch to the tropical outdoor paradise at Boaties, where the frozen cocktails will be flowing, and the famous chocolate sundaes will be on high rotation.

Watch your Bachy faves on the huge outdoor screen, kick back in a deck chair and soak in the Sunday night vibes in the company of fellow Bachy fans.

How does ‘Bachelor In Paradise’ work?

Bachelor in Paradise is a spin-off series that brings together a bunch of former contestants from The Bachelor and The Bachelorette, and puts them together in a resort at a tropical destination.

It borrows a few things from the standard Bachelor format, like rose ceremonies, but instead of one person giving out roses, there are several—but the numbers of men and women aren’t even. For example, at the first rose ceremony, there may be six men and eight women, which means two women will get eliminated from the show.

Over the course of filming, more men and women will join, so the numbers of men and women will always be uneven, meaning there will always be people to eliminate.

By the end, there will be a few couples remaining, and they will decide whether they want to leave paradise as a couple, or go their separate ways.

In the US version, the finale goes straight to the ‘where are they now’ live episode, but it’s unsure if the Aussie version will also do this.

So, it’s basically like a big Bachelor and Bachelorette love fest, and everyone’s in their swimmers the whole time. And there’s so much room for drama.

Who Will You Be Tweeting About?

The full list of Australian contestants has been confirmed. They are: Ali Oetjen, Apollo Jackson, Blake Colman, Brett Moore, Davey Lloyd, Eden Schwencke, Florence Alexandra Sophia, Jake Ellis, Jarrod Woodgate, Keira Maguire, Laurina Fleure, Leah Costa, Lisa Hyde, Luke McLeod, Mack Reid, Michael Turnbull, Nina Rolleston and Tara Pavlovic. Megan Marx and Sam Cochrane may join later, as they have definitely been spotted in paparazzi photos.
