This season of Bachelor in Paradise was filled with relationships, breakups, and a whole lot of drama. Following Chris Harrison's controversial exit from the hit reality series, ABC employed a slew of celebrity hosts, including David Spade, Lance Bass, Lil Jon, and Tituss Burgess, to conduct the rose ceremonies. With Season 7 winding down, some fans are wondering if Bachelor in Paradise will end earlier than expected.
"This could be the end of Paradise," one contestant says in the trailer for the Sept. 21 episode of BIP. So, will fans get a shortened season? Who ends up together? Keep reading to find out more!
When does 'Bachelor in Paradise' end?
The BIP contestants were forced to briefly evacuate their Mexico-based resort in Sayulita due to a tropical storm. It was reported that filming took place over three full weeks, ending on June 26.
ABC has not released the exact finale date of Bachelor in Paradise, but the show usually airs about 12 to 13 episodes per season. This would mean that BIP would potentially conclude on Oct. 12, and Michelle Young's season of The Bachelorette will air on Tuesday night on Oct. 19.
