'Bachelor in Paradise' Season 5 Premiered 2 Years Ago: Look Back at Day 1
2020 has thrown a few curveballs at the world, to say the least.
This is usually the time of year when Bachelor Nation would turn on the television and bask in all of the glory that is "Bachelor in Paradise." Despite the fact that it’s not on at the moment (we still have "Bachelor: The Greatest Seasons — Ever!" to keep us going), it’s never too late to reminisce on previous seasons of "Paradise."
The first day of "Bachelor in Paradise" is always tricky yet intriguing territory for the beachgoers. It’s the time to assess the people, see who walks down those famous steps at Playa Escondita, and discover who you have a connection with. Competition can be fierce, and some beachgoers show up knowing exactly who they want.
Season 5 of "Bachelor in Paradise" premiered August 7, 2018, and it gave us some of the most unforgettable moments in "Paradise" history. We’re talking about Colton and Tia, Jordan throwing a teddy bear in the ocean, rumors of "witchcraft," Yuki Kimura joining Wells Adams behind the bar, and so much more.
In honor Season 5’s premiere anniversary, look back at photos from the first day that started it all.
