The end of the summer-lovin' is here, so when we watch Bachelor in Paradise 2021 online tonight, we're going to be having a blast for the last time for a while. Good thing we don't need cable. 

Bachelor in Paradise 2021 details

Bachelor in Paradise's season 7 finale airs today (Tuesday, Oct. 5)  at 8 p.m. ET on ABC.

Bachelor in Paradise 2021 brings together former contestants from the Bachelor franchise to see if sparks fly. And they usually do — four BIP couples have gotten married after meeting on the show and several others are still engaged.

The show draws from all past seasons of The Bachelor and Bachelorette. But because BIP took a break last summer due to the pandemic, it will be able to draw from the four recent seasons headlined by Peter, Claire/Tayshia, Matt and Katie (who got engaged to Blake Moynes in the finale).

Bachelor in Paradise season 7 is the first without host Chris Harrison, who has exited the franchise. In his place, there will be a rotation of celebrity hosts, including David Spade, Lance Bass, Lil Jon and Tituss Burgess. 

Here's everything you need to know to watch Bachelor in Paradise 2021 online.
