Wells Adams and host Jesse Palmer are teasing all thing Paradise ahead of the premiere of the new season next week.
“We’ll just have more debauchery, more sexy singles coming down to the beach, and I’ll have to make a lot more drinks.” Wells told ET.
“I think it’s gonna be crazy this year. I mean, it’s always a little bonkers, but I know this season is going to be heightened because we’ve got a lot more people coming in and a lot of twists that we haven’t tried in the past, which I think is gonna be exciting,” he said.
“We’re gonna have more people than we’ve ever had coming down the beach, which means there’s gonna be a whole lot more drama. There’s a lot of stuff that we haven’t tried before on Paradise that we’re gonna try this season.”
“From where I sat, I loved it. Now, the cast did not like it very much,” he said. “You’ll see a lot of contestants be kind of angry at some of the things we throw at them this year, but it’s a fun show and, you know, I guess it’s a testament to how much ABC believes in the show.”
He also promised that there would be a formation of a lot of unlikely couples.
It’s so funny ’cause everyone always comes into that show thinking like, ‘So and so would be great [together]’…It never works out that way,” he said. “And I think that’s what’s great about the show is that you never really know what’s coming.”
Jesse Palmer is just as thrilled to be hosting the new season.
“I’m so excited,” Jesse said. “I’ve been a big fan of the show now for so long, I just can’t wait to dip into the waters of Paradise where all the magic happens on the sands. It’s gonna be fantastic. I can’t wait.”
“I can’t wait to find out who’s gonna end up together, what sort of love triangles and love squares and love hexagons we’re gonna end up seeing on this season,” he added. “It’s gonna be a lot of fun.”
“I’m gonna have to lean on Wells a little bit,” he continued. “He’s gonna have to show me the ropes a little bit down there at the beach.”
“I’m super excited to have Jesse here,” Wells continued about the host. “I’ve worked with him once before and he’s super professional. I don’t know if he knows what he’s in for, because this is a whole different beast… but he’ll acclimate quickly, I’m sure. I hope that Jesse comes and hangs out at the bar.”
So, are we gonna see engagements this season?
“People think it’s too short of a time to find love, but I don’t know what it is, if it’s in the water, the tacos and the beers, in the margaritas I make, but every year a lot of love happens down that beach,” Wells added. “I would be shocked if we didn’t have a couple more engagements this season.”
“This summer in paradise is going to feature love stories, it’s gonna feature the drama, there’s gonna be love triangles and squares and hexagons, the comedy that always ensues in the sand. It’s just the art of the possible,” he said. “A lot of very familiar faces for people at home, a lot people that I’d say Bachelor Nation loves to hate, and maybe even hates to love, are gonna be here as well.”
