Bachelor In Paradise 2023 Cast: Every Contestant In Season 9 Premiere

Following the 20th season of The Bachelorette, the ninth season of Bachelor in Paradise is back on ABC.
Filling out the ABC fall schedule, the first season of The Golden Bachelor (featuring a 72-year-old widower looking for love) and the new Bachelor in Paradise season will air every Thursday night.
Bachelor in Paradise is a spin-off of the standard The Bachelor and The Bachelorette series that puts an even mix of eligible men and women (from past seasons) together in Mexico to find love.
Bachelor Nation is already being prepped for the drama, with host Jesse Palmer telling Entertainment Tonight that Season 9 is “really special and unique:”
“There’s going to be something really special and unique this season, something to celebrate. I think all of Bachelor Nation is going to be really, really excited about it.”
Paradise is always a great show for devoted Bachelor watchers as the contestants are recognizable and can typically fall under a “hero” or “villain” persona.
