Married At First Sight, The Bachelor, The Bachelorette and My Kitchen Rules... these reality TV shows are notorious for having controversial and dramatic contestants and we can safely assume that Bachelor In Paradise will be no different.
So far, Tara Pavolvic, Keira Maguire, Davey Lloyd, Apollo Jackson, Laurina Fleur, Michael Turnbull, Luke McLeod, Jarrod Woodgate, Blake Colman, Sam Cochran, Ali Oetjen and Florence Alexandra have all been confirmed to appear on Bachelor In Paradise and as you can see, the producers seem to have chosen contestants who have all made headlines in the past.
Whether it's been for something they've done in the past, something they've done on their respective seasons of The Bachelor or The Bachelorette, or because of their heartbreak, every single one of these contestants is recognised by the Australian public and now, for the first time, the producers have revealed just how they decided to cast the new reality show.
Usually, the casting of a show is debated online between fans but now, the Bachelor In Paradise producers have decided to cut those rumours away early, explaining exactly why these people were asked to appear on the show.
Whilst speaking to OK! magazine, one of the producers said, "We chose the biggest personalities, the best combos and the most relatable people".
Is this the best combination of people for a dramatic TV show?
Is blending the sweethearts with the goofballs and the villains the key to a success?
Channel Ten hasn't yet released a comment and the producers of Bachelor In Paradise haven't elaborated on their statement, but we can safely assume that possibly, some people on the show may just be there for entertainment purposes... or to stir the pot.
Do you think this is a good idea?
