Following on from the success of both The Bachelor and The Bachelorette in the United States came the wild and highly dramatic spinoff Bachelor In Paradise. According to new reports, that much-loved trashy little sister of the major franchise is set to hit our Aussie shores in the near future. Cue the celebratory dance party!
For those unfamiliar with the concept, BIP basically involves taking previous contestants from both the Bachelor and Bachelorette and plonking them on an island together where they attempt to find love with one another. Think The Bachelor meets Love Island.
According to New Idea, Bachelor runner-up Nikki Gogan was seen filming a promo in Palm Beach, while the show is set to be filmed in Fiji. The publication also listed former stars Zilda Williams, Sarah-Mae Louise Amey, Michael Turnbull, Elora Murger and Leah Costa as candidates for the series. Can you even imagine the next level drama and scheming that would take place?
However, Channel Ten is currently denying that the show is in the works, telling Daily Mail Australia that the claims are false.
Despite their claim, we'll be keeping our fingers crossed that the show moves ahead. After all, it wouldn't be the first time they denied a Bachie report that turned about to be true later on...
