What is Bachelor in Paradise season 9 about?

As we know, Bachelor in Paradise will take singles from various seasons of The Bachelor and Bachelorette and put them on an island where they have to search for the loves of their life. But with only so many people in paradise, people are bound to be in love triangles, which means jealousy will be all around.

Who will date who? Are there any hearts scorned from previous heartbreaks? And, most importantly, will anyone receive their happily ever after? We’ll find out soon enough!

We’ll know much more about Bachelor in Paradise season 9 as September 2023 approaches. We cannot wait to see the trailer and any sneak peeks that ABC gives us. Until then, stay tuned with Hidden Remote for more updates!
