This series is going to be EXPLOSIVE.

Sophie Monk’s shot at love on The Bachelorette may have finished only last month, but we’ll soon be seeing the next Bachie installment – and it will include all the controversial and most-talked-about contestants so far!
While there have been plenty of rumours and intense speculation at which sweethearts and villains could be returning to our TV screens for Bachelor in Paradise in 2018, Network Ten have remained tight-lipped – until now.

Tonight at the Ten Upfronts, the network officially revealed the first six contestants to descend into Bachelor in Paradise – a place where former Bachelors and Bachelorettes are whisked away to a lush beachside spot where they can all find love.
So, who are the six lucky ladies and gents?
We’ve got magician/the Hulk’s actual body double Apollo Jackson (Sophie Monk’s season), Davey Lloyd and Michael Turnbull (Sam Frost’s season), yoga-living mean girl Keira Maguire (Richie Strahan’s season), ‘dirty street pie’ Laurina Fleure (Blake Garvey’s season), and the loveable Tara Pavlovic (Matty Johnson’s season).
Network Ten announced the exciting news last month that the popular US reality show would get an Aussie version. They wrote in a press release: “Set in a romantic tropical destination overseas, Bachelor In Paradise will follow the contestants as they build new relationships, fall in love or face heartbreak, again.”
