Bachelor in Paradise season 8 adds more episodes, which means even more romance, drama, and fun from the singles on the beach in Mexico.
Bachelor in Paradise fans who can’t get enough of the romance and drama of the stars of The Bachelor and The Bachelorette searching for a second chance at love, will be thrilled to know that the updated season 8 schedule includes five more episodes in November. It also has a record-breaking 43 people who will come and go from the beach. There has already been plenty of emotion, including some potentially long-lasting relationships and some intense love triangles.
In an Instagram post, Bachelor in Paradise shared its full, updated schedule with fans. The post includes a calendar with the caption, “Sorry, everyone.. I’m busy the next two months.” With 16 episodes, Bachelor in Paradise season 8 is the longest in the show’s history. It premiered on Tuesday, Sept. 27 and then picked up its normal Monday and Tuesday night schedule on Oct. 3 and 4. The show will air for the next four weeks on Monday and Tuesday nights on Oct. 10 and 11, Oct. 17 and 18, Oct. 24 and 25, and Oct. 31 and Nov. 1. Bachelor in Paradise will only air on Monday, Nov. 7, with no episode on Tuesday. It then resumes its regular schedule on Nov. 14 and 15.
Bachelor In Paradise Season 8 Features A Two-Night Finale Event
The Bachelor in Paradise two-night finale event airs November 21 and 22. These episodes will feature the couples who made it to the end of the show together. They will have to decide if they want to get engaged, leave as a dating couple, or break up. Bachelor in Paradise season 7 featured three engagements: Joe Amabile and Serena Pitt, Kenny Braasch and Mari Pepin, and Riley Christian and Maurissa Gunn. Although Riley and Maurissa eventually broke up, Joe and Serena and Kenny and Mari are currently planning their weddings.
A longer season of Bachelor in Paradise will be fun, although some fans have complained about what they see as filler on the show, including a storyline about married Bachelor Nation couple Ashley Iaconetti and Jared Haibon. Beloved beach bartender Wells Adams also shared that he will be doing some comedy skits spoofing the contestants throughout season 8 because the show has extra time to devote to it. However, romance is always the heart and soul of the show, and this longer schedule will allow fans to see the love stories unfold in greater depth.
Bachelor in Paradise has always been a summer show, but moving it to the ABC fall schedule has given the spin-off the opportunity to expand the number of episodes in the season. This means more fan favorites, more villains, more drama, and, of course, more romance. Bachelor in Paradise is off to a great start, and fans cannot wait to see what happens during the season finale in November.
Bachelor In Paradise airs Mondays and Tuesdays at 8 p.m. EDT on ABC.
