It features past contestants from The Bachelor and The Bachelorette as they travel to scheduled paradise in Mexico for the show. The show was initially hosted by Chris Harrison.

New cast members are brought in throughout the season. During season 7of the beloved show, three couples engaged, including “Grocery Store” Joe Amabile and Serena Pitt. The couples still on the beach have the choice of breaking up for good, leaving paradise together, or getting engaged.
