The spin-off series has faced many obstacles in the past year, and finding a replacement host for Chris Harrison is just one of the most recent issues. When the show was rebounding from its one-year hiatus due to the COVID-19 pandemic, the producers were left scrambling, trying to figure out who would take over Chris Harrison’s spot. As a seemingly temporary measure, producers chose to feature rotating celebrity judges to lighten up the show and bring different perspectives to Paradise. While it’s still unclear how many episodes each of these stars will host, here are all the celebrities who will be co-hosting the upcoming season.
Actor and comedian David Spade was the first celebrity co-host to be announced for Bachelor In Paradise season 7. The veteran Hollywood actor is best known for being on Saturday Night Live and his roles in films such as Grown Ups, Joe Dirt, and Tommy Boy. When news broke about David filling in for Chris Harrison, an insider told Page Six that David was picked because he is a Bachelor superfan. “He has even developed a cult following among fellow fans because of the hilarious commentary about the show that he doles out on his Instagram account,” the insider said. David will certainly bring a fresh take onto the show.
Veteran rapper Lil Jon is confirmed to be one of the co-hosts of BIP season 7. The Grammy Award-winning artist was the frontman of the multiplatinum-selling group Lil Jon & The East Side Boyz. Alas, Lil Jon is no stranger to the Bachelor franchise. The rapper appeared on The Bachelorette season 14, during Becca Kufrin’s one-on-one date with nice-guy-turned-villain Blake Horstmann. All things considered, it will be fun to watch the rapper returning to the show and guiding the contestants through love.
Actor and singer Tituss Burgess is ecstatic about his new co-hosting role on Bachelor In Paradise. In fact, Tituss told Page Six that reality TV is his guilty pleasure: “I’ll be like a hog in sh*t hosting this show.” Tituss is best known for playing the Titus Andromedon character on the Netflix comedy series Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt. This role garnered him 5 Emmy nominations. Like his character on the show, Tituss is a thespian. He starred in numerous plays on Broadway like The Little Mermaid and Guys and Dolls. In 2020, the 42-year-old also became the host of the Netflix singing competition series Sing On! As such, Tituss is the perfect choice to co-host Paradise.
Former *NSYNC band member Lance Bass will be new to Bachelor Nation, but he is not new to hosting gigs. In the past, he’s hosted radio shows like Dirty Pop with Lance Bass and the weekly Pop2Kountdown on the radio. Lance is also not new to hosting a dating show. In 2016, he hosted the first-ever gay dating TV show on Logo, Finding Prince Charming. He has made multiple TV appearances as well, such as his catfishing stint o The Circle season 2. Lance has helped people find love before on TV, so he’ll fit right in on one of the best dating shows. There is a lot of drama and meltdowns in paradise. Who will find love, and who will we say “Bye, Bye, Bye” to?
Wells Adams & Sarah Hyland
Even though it is not officially confirmed yet, it’s dutiful to note Wells Adams and his fiancee Sarah Hyland will participate in hosting BIP season 7. Originally, Wells competed on JoJo Fletcher’s season of The Bachelorette. He returned to the franchise on Bachelor In Paradise season 3 as the series’ bartender. Wells is a Bachelor nation mainstay, so it makes sense why he would return as a co-host. But, this time, he will be joined by his fiancee and Modern Family actress Sarah Hyland. Sarah is a Bachelor Nation fan herself. She made it known to the world that she was attracted to Wells on Twitter while he was still competing on The Bachelorette. The pair have been inseparable ever since, and they will be helping others find love on Bachelor In Paradise.
