Roses at the ready! Australian Bachelor in Paradise IS happening

Everything you need to know about the Bachie spin-off that’s coming Down Under.

If The Bachelor Australia 2017 and The Bachelorette Australia 2017 weren't enough - brace yourselves because there's another Bachelor special in the works.
It’s the controversial Bachelor spin-off that’s dominated headlines globally, after US Bach villains Corinne Olympios and DeMario Jackson caused the set to be shut down following a boozy night that went too far.
And now The Bachelor in Paradise is hitting Australia, with filming to start in the next couple of months!
Richie Strahan's runner-up, Nikki Gogan has been approached.
The show, which invites rejected Bachelor and Bachelorettes to a romantic paradise for a second shot at love with each other – think of it as Love Island, but with contestants you already love… and love to hate – has been given the green light by production and casting is already underway.
According to our well-placed insider, former contestants have already been approached including Keira Maguire, Nikki Gogan, Sasha Mielczarek, Elora Murger, Michael Turnbull, Jake Ellis, Jen Hawke and Blake Garvey.
And Osher Gunsberg has already been tapped to host - natch!
Will villain Jen Hawke be back?
So far, Channel Ten have played down to reports and denied the show is in the works but an official announcement is expected to drop shortly.
Stay tuned!
