The premiere episode of the Bachelor in Paradise, set in Tulum, Mexico  aired on August 4, 2014 with former contestants from the Bachelor and the Bachelorette. From the most recent season in which Andi Dorfman was the Bachelorette were: Marquel Martin, Cody Sattler, Dylan Petit, Tasos Hernandez, and Marcus Grodd.

The reality TV show is a dating game, in which the ladies and men receive date cards and can select whom they want to take out on a date. In the first episode the ladies were able to chose the fellows to date, but the guys actually had the real control, because they were able to choose which ladies would receive roses on the show. Anyone who did not receive a rose had to leave paradise and head home empty-handed.

So far, Clare and Robert visited the Tulum Ruins. Clare tried to fight her fear of heights with Robert’s support. Sarah and Marcus went to the Tankah -ha Cenote sinkhole, in Tulum which is amazingly beautiful and private swimming  area underground.

Michelle Money and Marquel coupled up during a horseback ride in Playa del Carmen in Tulum, Mexico. Finally, Lacy (called an aggressive Bachelorette) dated Robert. She felt that Robert was stunning, had to choose between Robert and Marcus,  since she was interested in both men.  Two of the ladies had to go home the first week, but since Michelle K. volunteered to leave after the first rose ceremony, only one person — left.  Daniella was the first person to leave the Bachelor in Paradise.

The Bachelor in Paradise is on target to be even more steamier as additional people are scheduled to arrive every week.
