Truely the best!!!

I think that this show is an amazing show and its a great movie for if you're hanging out with the girls. My 12 year old watches it with me and we just skip the nasty parts but other than that we really enjoy watching it.

Is It Any Good?

Our review:
Parents say (3 ):
Kids say (4 ):

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.
