Bachelor In Paradise Australia delayed. Premiere TBA
On top of the Bachelor AU season 8 being suspended, Bachelorette USA Season 16 being on hiatus, now there is news that the shiny jewel in the crown – Bachelor In Paradise Australia is being pushed back in the schedule to dates unknown.
TV Tonight reported that BIP AU has been pushed back in the schedule despite already filming at Mango Bay Resort Fiji in November and wrapping up in December 2019.
So, instead of a ridiculously attractive cast of misfits auditioning for future roles as tooth whitening promoters (and a healthy dose of Osher Gunsberg – the man some have dubbed “The GOAT of Bachelor hosts worldwide”), we’ll be served up Jamie Oliver cooking shows and COVID-19 specials, then Masterchef. Sad Panda.
The one morsel of hope thrown to us BIP starved Bach faithful (I think Love Island counts as a hall-pass) was assurances that it would air further into this year.
“Do not panic. You will still get to see your favourite bachelorettes and bachelors when they return to paradise for romance, scandal, betrayal and – for three couples – true love. Bachelor In Paradise will air later this year,”Channel 10
