bachelor-pad-in-paradise-ABC.jpgIf you’re like us, you were simply devastated last summer when there was no “Bachelor Pad” to bridge the gap between “The Bachelorette” and “The Bachelor” on ABC. But take heart, fans — summer 2014 promises a new “Bachelor Pad”-esque show with a “Paradise Hotel” twist.

Entertainment Weekly is reporting that ABC is launching “Bachelor in Paradise” this summer, which will transport your favorite franchise heroes and villains to a tropical locale to live in an “isolated romantic paradise” and hopefully find Mr. or Ms. Right (Now).

There will be a rose ceremony, but it has not yet been revealed if someone will go home each week. Also, the show will only run for six episodes. But the series does promise “new twists, shocking surprises and unexpected guests.”

Chris Harrison is the host, of course, and cast members will be announced at a later date.

Who do you hope to see amongst the cast? We’ve got our fingers crossed for Tierra LiCausi and Juan Pablo Galavis, because what is summertime TV without some crazy?
