According to Ten the new short-run series will feature some of the biggest personalities from previous seasons of The Bachelor and The Bachelorette, returning for another chance at 'love'.

Set in a tropical destination overseas, Bachelor In Paradise will follow the contestants as they build new relationships, fall in love or face heartbreak, again.

"Bachelor In Paradise is the perfect complement to, and extension of, those shows. It will give viewers everything they love about The Bachelor Australia and The Bachelorette Australia, including familiar faces, spectacular dates, explosive rose ceremonies, drama, romance, adventure, laughter and - of course - love."
