Development and filming
In March 2013, ABC canceled Bachelor Pad after three seasons. Much similar to Bachelor Pad, the eliminated men and women from The Bachelor and The Bachelorette are isolated in a romantic paradise in an exotic tropical destination.
At the first rose ceremony, the six men are given a rose to hand out to a woman they"?d like to spend more time getting to know in paradise. With an uneven number of men and women in the group, the two women left without roses are immediately sent home heartbroken. Just as potential couples start to pair up, everything changes drastically in the next episode when two new men arrive to paradise with love on their mind. For seven weeks, each episode will alternate 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.
