We have a good *checks calendar* THREE months until summer officially arrives, which means that the producers at ABC are hard at work making sure that Bachelor in Paradise actually happens this year. Yes, the 2020 BiP season had to get scrapped because we were smack dab in the middle of the pandemic, but now that things are a little better, a new season is officially on the way!
Since BiP's arrival is imminent, it's about that time again—time we do a deep dive and figure out everything we know about the upcoming seventh season, that is. Sink your teeth into the details, below. And JSYK: There are major spoilers ahead! Obvi!
Filming Begins in June
In a spoiler post, Reality Steve revealed that Bachelor in Paradise is set to start filming this summer in between Katie Thurston and Michelle Young's season of The Bachelorette. “Bachelor in Paradise will film per usual in June at a location that hasn’t been announced yet and will begin airing after Katie’s season is done airing, per usual," Steve wrote.
We Know at Least One Contestant
Sorry to break it to ya, but the season seven cast members of Bachelor in Paradise have yet to be announced. But! In January, ABC exec Rob Mills decided to treat fans to one nugget of info and confirmed that Dr. Joe Park, who competed in Tayshia and Clare's season of The Bachelorette, will be on the show—yay!
“We’ve got ourselves a vaccinated Paradisian!!” Mills wrote, retweeting a post about Joe receiving a COVID-19 vaccination. As a reminder, Joe was was eliminated in the top 16 of The Bachelorette, so hopefully he has a shot of finding love on BiP!
The Filming Location Is TBD
Again, we're gonna have to wait for this info since Reality Steve doesn't have any tips yet. If the past seasons are any indicator, though, there's a good chance that BiP might film somewhere in Mexico. Season one took place in Tulum, and seasons two and six happened in Sayulita, so there's a good chance Mexico is on the table again.
That's all we know about BiP season seven right now, but be sure to check back here for any and all updates!
