The show was filmed at the Mango Bay Resort in Fiji in November and December, meaning production was not interrupted by the coronavirus pandemic.
However, Channel 10 decided to hold the series until later in the year to prioritise its news coverage of the global health crisis.
Bachelor in Paradise follows ex-contestants from The Bachelor and The Bachelorette as they compete for a second chance at love.

In a recent teaser for the upcoming season, ex-Bachelorette star Ciarran Stott arrives naked at the Fijian villa with only a bunch of red grapes covering his modesty.
He confidently strides up to Abbie Chatfield, the runner-up from last year’s season of The Bachelor, who reveals she has a crush on him.
‘I came here for Ciarran, he’s hot and such a naughty boy. He’s mine and I’m going to get him,’ Abbie says in the trailer.
Another trailer hints at a romance between Timm Hanly, the runner-up from Angie Kent’s season of The Bachelorette, and Brittany Hockley, one of the finalists from Nick ‘The Honey Badger’ Cummins’ season of The Bachelor.
The pair are shown kissing in a bathtub, after which Brittany confesses: ‘He really took me by surprise. [There’s] something about him that I want to get to know more.’
