A Lot or a Little?
What you will—and won't—find in this TV show.
The theme is finding love, but the focus is more on sexual attraction than on building healthy, viable relationships.
Positive Role Models
Some of the cast members are branded as "villains" due to their previous reality experiences.
Violence & Scariness
Arguing between cast members is frequent. One incident leads to an emergency intervention.

Sex, Romance & Nudity
There's lots of bikini-clad women and shirtless men, as well as some sexual tension and discussion of attraction. Expect kissing (both opposite- and same-sex) and hints of other sexual behavior. People skinny-dip, but no nudity is visible.

Parents Need to Know
Parents need to know that Bachelor in Paradise, a spin-off of The Bachelor franchise, features all the expected catty behavior, arguing, sexual innuendo, language, and mature themes one expects from these shows. There's lots of drinking, too. The show's theme is finding love but focuses more on sexual attraction than building viable relationships.
Is It Any Good?
As with its sister series, Bachelor in Paradise features all the fantasy dates, sexual tension, and rivalries one has come to expect from these shows. The discussions of finding love after a few hours of meeting someone and the constant changing of partners adds to the show's entertainment value.
Fans of the franchise will find it entertaining, especially when more notorious cast members engage in colorful or extreme behavior. But it also sends troubling messages about looking for serious and healthy relationships.
Did we miss something on diversity?
