Now that this season has finished filming, the question remains of who will host Bachelor in Paradise this year, with season seven dropping this summer along with The Bachelorette. ABC has already moved on to pre-production for the tropical spinoff, according to the third source.
“Chris is not expected at Paradise,” continues the third production source. “It’s not been mentioned at this point but everyone knows he wants to return.”
The second source confirms there are no talks of Chris coming back for Paradise.
The Bachelorette premieres June 7 with Paradise premiering on Aug. 16.
E! News has reached out to ABC and Chris’ rep for comment.
