It might be fall, but the beach just got hotter: Bachelor in Paradise has returned for its eighth season.
The Bachelor in Paradise setup remains the same for Season 8: Rejected contestants from The Bachelor and The Bachelorette are sent to a beach retreat in uneven groups of men and women. Each week, the men and women take turns giving out roses to the opposite gender, sending some contestants home and making room for new singles to join the show.
