BACHELOR in Paradise host Osher Gunsberg says viewers can expect love triangles, trapezoids and rectangles when the second series of the show returns on Tuesday April 9.

Season two of the popular reality show will see 15 singles of the franchise series hit Fiji looking for a second chance of love.

Among those are former Bachelor Richie Strahan and single Brooke Blurton who last year walked away from love with “Honey Badger” Nick Cummins.

Gunsberg said he was thrilled for viewers to see what everyone got up to over the summer including the fiery exchange between former lovebirds Strahan and leading lady Alex Nation.

“We do some thing that has never been done before on the Bachelor,” he said.

“We are the first people to have a ‘bachelor’ being Richie on our series and of course Alex there as well – it’s humungous.

“We’ve all had a very intense relationship that burned brightly and then broke up and we’ve all bumped into our ex in a space we didn’t expect to see them and both of those things are true for Richie and Alex.

“They see each other for the first time in Fiji and I’m sure a lot of people can relate going through something like that.

“It’s pretty full on and it’s utterly compelling.”

Describing this series as “pretty full on” Gunsberg said what was good about the show was those returning had previously shared their stories so viewers already had a relationship with them.

He added many had grown after reflecting on their initial Bachelor experience.

As for the show’s success rate, it is something he felt good about and while he didn’t offer advice to the contestants on their love lives he did think the way to a successful relationship was to evolve together.

“Understand that your relationship will always change, you have to rearrange and recreate your relationship constantly which is great because you get to have 20 different relationships over your life with the same person,” he said.

“Expecting things to be like they were is an exercise in futility that will only lead to resentment.

“As long you keep talking, communicating and reinventing that relationship you should be alright.”

Bachelor in Paradise starts on Tuesday April 9 at 7.30pm on Ten.
