Jesse Palmer teases big Bachelor in Paradise twist 

During the Men’s Tell All, a preview for Bachelor in Paradise aired, giving viewers a taste of all the drama, tears, and love in store. 

In one segment of the preview, Jesse tells the ladies to pack their bags and immediately leave the island. 

The news doesn’t appear to sit well with the women who are shown yelling, “F**k you, Jesse Palmer,” from a balcony. 

Rumors suggest that Bachelor in Paradise will try something new this season by splitting up love connections in the middle of the process.

It remains to be seen if viewers find this twist effective and entertaining. 

For now, fans look forward to many familiar faces and Bachelor Nation fan favorites returning to the island. 

Some men vying for love include The Bachelorette Season 17 fan favorites Andrew Spencer, Michale Allio, Justin Glaze, and Aaron Clancy. There will also be familiar faces from Michelle Young’s season of The Bachelorette, such as Rodney Mathews and Brandon Jones. 

Plenty of ladies from Clayton Echard’s season of The Bachelor will be on the island, including Genevieve Parisi, Serene Russell, Sierra Jackson, and the controversial Shanae Ankney. 

Bachelor in Paradise premieres Tuesday, September 27, on ABC.
