Camp Paradise is in session! As the party boat arrived at the dock, one by one 14 of the most eligible bachelors and bachelorettes from both the franchise and #BachelorNation were greeted by host Jesse Jones to officially begin their search for love at summer camp. Fan-favourite alumni arrivals were Brendan S., Illeana, Kamil, Lisa, Angela, Chris, Caitlin, and Stacy; while the #BachelorNation arrivals featured newcomers Brendan M., Jeremy, Ana, Kit, Joey (who brought his “Alberta flavour” in a cowboy hat, boots, and not much else), and Alice, the winner of “Canada Chooses the Perfect Companion with Expedia.”
Within the first few arrivals, fast feelings were already forming – most notably the undeniable and magnetic connection between Brendan S. and Illeana. Meanwhile, on the other end of the beach, Lisa let her insecurities get the best of her, and a love triangle quickly took shape between Angela, Brendan M., and Stacy.
Then, a late arrival from #BachelorNation single Vay ruffled the feathers of real-life coworker and frenemy, Caitlin, spurring the second triangle of the group, as Vay swooped in on Caitlin’s early crush Kamil with the first date card.
With six men and eight women currently in the mix, the men hold the power of the rose this week, and the women who don’t form a connection risk being sent home at the next rose ceremony.
Next week, on Sunday, Oct. 17 at 8 p.m. ET/PT on Citytv, Lisa tries to rebound from a rough start in Paradise while rivals Caitlin and Vay attempt to stake out their territory. Plus, the arrival of a familiar face with a shady past creates waves on the beach and a steamy night of passion and fireworks leads to surprising connections. Later, an unexpected departure and epic Cocktail Party drama leave the Campers wondering if anyone is safe in Paradise.
