Ranking The Best Seasons of ‘Bachelor In Paradise’

It’s crazy to think we are already approaching ‘Bachelor In Paradise Season 7 of this beloved island show! I confess, I initially didn’t really see it lasting. I was a huge Bachelor Pad fan and didn’t see Bachelor in Paradise successfully replacing it. However, it has proven me wrong, in some ways rising above the pack of Bachelor shows in terms of both entertainment and lasting couples!

As we look forward to Season 7, let’s take a look back and rank all the seasons of Bachelor in Paradise!

#6: Bachelor In Paradise Season 2

It pains me to have this season in the worst slot because it was still fairly entertaining, but Season 2 was still experiencing the growing pains of Season 1 without the “new show” shine to set it apart. Yes, it turned out a Bachelor Nation royalty couple, Jade Roper and Tanner Tolbert, but their relationship was so perfect it just wasn’t very interesting to watch. The other ending couples, Samantha & Nick and Cassandra & Justin, just weren’t well-known enough to really warrant investment.

One good thing was that Ashley Iaconetti and Jared Haibon met for the first time in Season 2, but it was painful to watch since Jared was still in the “just not that into you” phase!

By far the best thing to come out of this season was Chris Bukowski’s 24-hour return to Paradise, after which he penned a wonderful letter reflecting on his experience with reality television.

#5: Bachelor in Paradise Season 4

It’s not that this season didn’t have a lot of interesting stuff going on–it did! The Dean Unglert love triangle with Danielle and Kristina, for example. The problem is that much of the development of these relationships happened offscreen!

The consent scandal between Corrinne Olympios and DeMario Jackson shut down production for a few weeks after the cast members had already met. The result was a good deal of confusion upon return as viewers saw contestants reference relationship development that had happened off-camera–a road trip that Kristina and Dean took together, for example.

Frustrating, I tell you!

#4: Bachelor in Paradise Season 6

We had Bachelor in Paradise’s first same-sex couple, but some complained it broke the rules of the show because it was the first time Paradise featured a non-Bachelor/Bachelorette contestant, in the form of Demi’s girlfriend, Kristian Haggerty.

Season 6 also gave us the gifts of John Paul Jones, the return of Bukowski, and some long-term couples in the form of Hannah Godwin and Dylan Barbour and Caelynn Miller-Keyes and Dean Unglert! Dean’s return to the beach, dressed all in black and mustache-less, was the best moment of the season.

The most recent season of Bachelor in Paradise is in the number four spot because, well it did have some great couples and hilarious moments, the formula of the show has just gotten old by now. Here’s hoping they throw in some curveballs next season!

#3:  Bachelor in Paradise Season 1

The first season of Bachelor in Paradise was great in many ways. Super low budget dates, arbitrary rules, and hilarious personalities in the form of Bachelor veterans Michelle Money, Chris Bukowski, and Clare Crawley (I’m sure we all remember the dramatic raccoon conversation).

However, it was quite rushed and confusing at times. Nobody really knew what to make of this show yet, and it was rather plotless at times.

By far, the best thing to come out of season 1 was this incredible reenactment of the fallout of contestant Michelle Kujawa and crew member Ryan Putz’s romance. It’s truly, truly amazing.

#2: Bachelor in Paradise Season 5

This was a great season, and one that churned out possibly the greatest number of long(ish) term couples: Krystal and Chris! Jenna and Jordan! Kendall and Joe! Astrid and Kevin! There was also Annaliese and Kamil, but that didn’t go so well.

This was also the season we saw the “will they/won’t they” (mostly won’t) relationship of Tia and Colton, before Colton went on to become The Bachelor!

Leo was also running around being insane. Such good times.

#1: Bachelor in Paradise Season 3

Season 3 was almost too good to be true. The famous Nick Viall/Josh Murray feud was rekindled in a brief love triangle with Amanda Stanton. Better yet, we saw Josh forced to defend his reputation on television after Andi Dorfman’s book, It’s Not Okay, came out.

Speaking of love triangles, there was also an epic one between Jared, Ashley, and Caila Quinn. So many tears! This season also turned out the couple of Evan Bass and Carly Wadell (who can forget that hot pepper kiss??) as well as Lace Morris and Grant Kemp.

It makes me so nostalgic just writing about this season!

Truly paradise.
