Jesse Palmer on How It’s Different Hosting Bachelor in Paradise | entertainment
With Bachelors in paradise In Season 8, Jesse Palmer will have hosted all of the shows in the Bachelor Franchise. The spin-off is currently filming in Mexico and will premiere on ABC this fall, not long after Gabby Windey and Rachel Recchia’s season The Bachelorette.
Palmer previously spoke to TV Insider The Bachelorette Season 19 premieres July 11, shares his newfound insights into the three shows and comparing experiences, dubbing the spin-off “A fresh experience.” And when it comes to the differences between Clayton Echard’s season vs. Gabby and Rachel, Palmer says the first informed the second.
“The biggest difference for me this time around was the fact that I had a personal experience and relationship with both Gabby and Rachel since I was from there during Clayton’s season The bachelor‘ he says of The Bachelorette. “I was at the opera house in Iceland during the rose ceremony from hell, during the double separation. It was incredibly emotional, heartbreaking and heartbreaking for them, but I saw the unwavering support they had for each other.
“As a host of these shows, you wear a lot of different hats. I think what was a little bit different from the start is that I wore a little bit more of a cheerleader hat for these two. I’m such a big fan of Rachel and Gabby. I want them to be happy. I want them to find their person. That was probably a big difference, at least in the beginning.”
GDP is a whole different ball game, from location to cast size to premise.
“It feels very different in many ways. Obviously the format is very different. So much fun to see the whole cast. It’s hard to follow, but it’s fun to follow the different love stories, the different love triangles, who’s coming and who’s going,” he explains. BBut the former NFL star admits there’s still a sense of familiarity.
“While you should remain impartial as the show’s host, at the end of the day, all I want is for people to find love and end up happy. So if Clayton finds Susie, or hopefully Gabby and Rachel find her person, it’s no different than in paradise‘ shares Palmer. “Right now I see myself looking at different performers and just hoping those relationships survive all the drama and chaos that people inevitably find down here on the beach. It’s kind of the same, there’s just so much more of it.”
