The clip shows Harrison’s opening sequence, which features the Bachelor Nation host holding a buoy and binoculars while standing on the infamous beach in Mexico. (Seriously, though…what does he do all day?)
The caption reads, “Hey Beaches! #BachelorInParadise returns for a new season on Monday, July 29!”
The news might surprise some fans, considering past seasons of Bachelor in Paradise have premiered in August. The upcoming episodes will directly follow Hannah Brown’s season of The Bachelorette, which will start airing on ABC on Monday, May 13.
Although the network has yet to make any official BiP cast announcements, several contestants from Colton Underwood’s season—including Demi Burnett, Kirpa Sudick, Hannah Godwin, Nicole Lopez-Alvar, Onyeka Ehie, Heather Martin and Caelynn Miller-Keyes—are expected to make appearances.
Male predictions include Blake Horstmann, Ben Higgins, Jordan Kimball, Wills Reid, Eric Bigger, Derek Peth and—dare we say—Nick Viall, who appeared on seasons ten and 11 of The Bachelorette before becoming the star of season 21 of The Bachelor.
Bachelor Nation is reunited, and it feels so good.
