SPOILERS ahead from Bachelor in Paradise 2019 Season 6.
Bachelor in Paradise is always a hot mess, but The Bachelor 2019 alum Demi Burnett insists Season 6 will be a high-quality hot mess with real love -- including two romances for herself, one being Bachelor Nation's first same-sex romance -- and good drama instead of just manufactured nonsense.
The drama is just actually insane and very entertaining and it's not, like, some stupid drama you don't really care about. It's like, 'Oh no, this is good!' Like, this is all real. This is crazy. It's your good old-fashioned dumpster fire.
During Demi's talk, she was asked to name the most sought-after guys and girls in Paradise 2019. She named Bachelorette Hannah alum Dylan Barbour for the guys and both Hannah Godwin and Tayshia Adams for the girls.
Speaking of Demi's fellow former Bachelor Colton alumni Hannah G. and Tayshia, spoiler guru Reality Steve said they get caught up in the Blake Horstmann drama that's said to dominate the first couple of episodes.
In those first couple of episodes, Demi seems to get close to Bachelor in Paradise Season 4 alum Derek Peth. However, Derek later gets close to Tayshia and is called out by none other than John Paul Jones, who appears to have a good showing this season.
But one reason Demi seems to leave Derek before the third Rose Ceremony is the arrival of Kristian Haggerty. Kristian is actually not a former Bachelor contestant, but she is Demi's real-life girlfriend; Demi reportedly started dating her earlier in the year. Kristian comes to Paradise, and an early Bachelor in Paradise promo showed Demi and Kristian getting busy.
As Demi says in the promo:
I know that I love this girl. I'm so happy that I found her. And I can definitely picture being with her for the rest of my life.
ET asked Demi how serious things might get for her with Kristian in Mexico.
You'll have to watch and see. ...Paradise was amazing. It was so fun, so emotional, but ultimately all worth it. [It's] very, very good.
One major reason why Paradise might've been "worth it" for Demi is she's said to get engaged to Kristian in the finale. It's mean to be the Bachelor franchise's first same-sex engagement.
There's a lot to look forward to, two nights a week, in Bachelor in Paradise Season 6. There's more Dean drama, a major Jordan fight, Connor seeming to have a missed connection, and two more engagements beyond Demi and Kristian -- including a happy ending for one of Bachelorette Hannah Brown's recent rejects.
Speaking of Bachelorette Hannah's season, Mike Johnson will also be in Paradise, so maybe that will keep him fresh in producers' minds when it comes time to pick the 2020 Bachelor after the summer spinoff ends.
Bachelor in Paradise premieres Monday, August 5 and airs Mondays and Tuesdays at 8 p.m. for about six weeks on ABC.
