The Season 8 premiere of “Bachelor In Paradise” brought in the engagement on social media but when it came to viewership, the show fell short surprisingly!
Coming off of the hype of The Bachelorette, you would think more people would be tuned in for the new season but a lot of people tuned out.
The premiere episode received 2.419M views and a .55 demo.
This is down from the Season 7 premiere of 3.230M views and .93 demo.
The drop is a big one but the show is receiving great reviews so the ratings could possibly soar further down the road.
Bachelor in Paradise brings previous contestants of The Bachelor and The Bachelorette together under one roof in a tropical oasis in the town of Sayulita in Mexico. Contestants try to win a big cash prize — and maybe even finally find true love on television. Jesse Palmer serves as the host. In the eighth season, the cast includes franchise alumni Andrew Spencer, Brandon Jones, Brittany Galvin, Casey Woods, Genevieve Parisi, Hailey Malles, Hunter Haag, Jacob Rapini, Jill Chin, Johnny DePhillipo, Justin Glaze, Kira Mengistu, Lace Morris, Logan Palmer, Michael Allio, Romeo Alexander, Serene Russell, Shanae Ankney, Sierra Jackson, Teddi Wright, and Victoria Fuller.
