Former cast members from “The Bachelor” and “The Bachelorette” try to leave their wounded hearts behind as they take another shot at finding love. After traveling to a secluded paradise in Sayulita, Mexico, the cast members explore new relationships and see if summer flings will turn into something more — or if their hearts will be shattered yet again. The pursuit of a potential happily-ever-after includes shocking twists, unexpected guests, unlikely pairings, and other surprises.
Just as potential couples start to pair up, everything changes drastically when new arrivals storm the beaches of Paradise with love on their minds. For seven weeks, each episode alternates between two new men or women joining the cast. New relationships may form, and current ones may end. Every week, the two people who don’t receive a rose will be forced to leave Paradise. It’s a constant love shuffle where surprise arrivals can rekindle old romances, spark new ones, or splinter existing love affairs.
At the final Rose Ceremony of the season, Carly Waddell accepted a proposal from Evan Bass, Amanda Stanton accepted a proposal from Josh Murray, and Lace Morris accepted a proposal from Grant Kemp.
Carly and Evan returned to Paradise a year later and were married on June 17, 2017. They currently live in Tennessee, with their daughter Bella and sons Charles, Ensley, Nathan and Liam.
