The network has announced that Paradise Hotel is getting a reboot, and The Hills' Kristin Cavallari is checking in to host it. From the sound of things, she will have her hands full. Paradise Hotel is not just a reality show; it is also a competition that involves dating. This show is going to be interesting! What is it about exactly?
Paradise Hotel will follow a group of singles as they stay at an exclusive tropical resort. While the scene gets set for lots of romance to unravel, there is also a catch. They cannot stay there until the show ends. Each week, one contestant has to go as a new single makes their way to paradise.
Contestants will have to utilize strategies and pair up to remain there. Making further waves in this reboot is that social media users will attempt to influence the events as they unravel on-screen. They will also help decide who gets to stay and who has to go. That is a lot of power.
There to host the action is Kristin Cavallari and make no mistake, she will be busy hosting the show. The "unscripted dating competition series" will air three nights a week over the course of five weeks. It will air Mondays, Wednesdays, and Thursdays. Thursdays' episodes will be a treat as they will feature "LIVE elements." The show will arrive just in time for summer, making its debut in early May.
Kristin Cavallari is a busy woman. Her E! reality series Very Cavallari launched last year and has already gotten renewed for a second season. Paradise Hotel will be a considerable change of pace for her. Neither The Hills or her recent E! show are in the competition format.
That said, Kristin Cavallari is familiar with reality competition series, thanks to her stint competing on Dancing with the Stars. She has also done some guest judging on Cupcake Wars and America's Next Top Model.
For fans of the reality star, it will be exciting to see her take on what sounds like could be an entertaining project. Paradise Hotel will have its bases covered. The point seems to be the competition with the on-screen romances strewn in for fun.
The Paradise Hotel revival comes from executive producers well-versed in the ways of reality TV. Set to executive produce is Jersey Shore: Family Vacation's SallyAnn Salsano, Love Island's Becca Walker, America's Got Talent's James Sunderland, Big Brother's Paul Osborne, and An Idiot Abroad's Celia Taylor.
If Paradise Hotel sounds familiar and you cannot quite put your finger on it, here is the key. The show originally premiered in 2003 and ran for one season. It came back five years later in 2008 with Paradise Hotel 2. Versions of the show have aired around the world. Here is when Paradise Hotel will make its latest U.S. run.
