FOX has announed that the premiere date for its new unscripted series "Paradise Hotel" has been moved to Wednesday, June 18th at 9PM ET from the previously scheduled June 16th. The twice-a-week series will then premiere in its Monday 8PM ET time slot on Monday, June 23.

With "Paradise Hotel, for the first time ever on a reality series, viewers will have an ongoing opportunity to become participants on "Paradise Hotel." The series follows a group of single men and women who are given the opportunity of a lifetime—to live together in the most exclusive resort ever created. But paradise doesn't last forever… each week one hotel guest will be eliminated to make room for a new guest.

Viewers at home can become the new guests of the hotel by logging onto for a chance to become a contestant. Contestants must win a unique studio game where the guests at the hotel will decide which contestant will be the next guest at "Paradise Hotel." The studio winner will literally leave immediately after the show and fly to the resort to appear on the next episode as a hotel guest, who will be pampered and spoiled beyond his/her wildest dreams at the exotic, sun-drenched "Paradise Hotel."

New episodes of the series will air on Mondays at 8PM ET and Wednesdays at 9PM ET. On Monday shows, viewers at home will watch along with the studio audience as every tantalizing moment unfolds at the hotel. On Wednesdays, the in-studio contestants compete to become the newest addition to "Paradise Hotel." Meanwhile, at the hotel, it is the goal of every guest to remain in paradise as long as possible.

"Paradise Hotel" is a format brought to FOX by Mentorn, a production subsidiary of the United Kingdom's The Television Corporation. It was devised by Howard Davidson and Phil Roberts from Mentorn's development team. The Mentorn production team, led by executive producers Tom Gutteridge and Charles Thompson, is working in the United States in association with Los Angeles-based executive producer Arthur Smith and his production company, A. Smith & Co.
