Bachelor in Paradise will not air on Tuesday, Nov. 8. Fans are eagerly awaiting the next episode, as they look forward to the finale of the show.
Bachelor in Paradise will not air on Tuesday, Nov. 8., leaving Bachelor Nation wondering what will happen after the Monday night cliffhanger. Fans will have to wait until next week to find out how Justin Glaze reacts to Eliza Isichei showing up at his door, after she regretted giving Rodney Mathews her rose at the rose ceremony. The coming attractions for the next episode also teased the arrivals of Ency Abedin and Lyndsey Windham. Now-engaged, Becca Kufrin and Thomas Jacobs will return to Paradise, after meeting and falling in love there last season. The Bachelorette season 19 stars Gabby Windey and Rachel Recchia will also make an appearance.
Bachelor in Paradise is not airing on Tuesday, Nov. 8, due to ABC’s coverage of the 2022 Midterm Election. The network will present extensive coverage, analysis, and election results throughout the night, so all regularly scheduled programming is preempted. According to the Bachelor in Paradise Instagram page, the show will return to its normal time slot on Monday, Nov. 14 and Tuesday, Nov. 15.
The Bachelor in Paradise Finale Is Sure To Bring The Drama
The Bachelor in Paradise finale will air in a two-night event on Monday, Nov. 21 and Tuesday, Nov. 22. During the finale, Bachelor Nation will find out which couples left engaged, which wanted to continue dating, and which decided to go their separate ways. For the first time in many seasons, Bachelor in Paradise will feature a reunion special, which was taped on Nov. 4. This episode will update fans on what happened to the contestants after filming wrapped. It is like a “Men Tell All,” “Women Tell All,” and “After the Final Rose” episode combined into one dramatic show.
Bachelor in Paradise season 8 has been heavily criticized for its seemingly scripted plot lines, and unnecessary producer manipulation. Fans mostly felt that the Split Week twist, during which the established couples were torn apart while new women and men came to Paradise to test them, was a failure. It made the show feel more like a game than an opportunity for people to get to know each other, and fall in love. The emotional torment of the Bachelor in Paradise season 8 contestants has turned fans off of the show.
Although BiP will not air on Election Night, the show will return for its final four episodes, beginning with the following week. The finale is sure to be one of the most dramatic in the history of the series, as the contestants confront each other for the first time since leaving Paradise. Bachelor in Paradise season 8 is an installment that Bachelor Nation will remember for a long time, but perhaps not for the right reasons.
Bachelor in Paradise airs Mondays and Tuesdays at 8 p.m. ET on ABC.
