Bachelor in Paradise (8 p.m., ABC) - We’re still coming down off that crazy “Bachelorette” finale, but there’s no time to rest — ‘Paradise’ awaits. This season features Caelynn Miller-Keyes, the former Miss North Carolina USA (and former Miss USA runner-up) who appeared on Season 23 (the Colton season) of “The Bachelor.” In tonight’s premiere, nine men and 11 women arrive and Blake gets the first date. But also, “Caelynn must choose between men,” ABC tells us. Not sure if that means he also gets a date card. We’ll see! There are already rumors of Caelynn starting a romance with Dean Unglert, who appeared on a previous season of “The Bachelorette” and who will also be on this season of “Bachelor in Paradise.” Colton Underwood recently told Us Weekly that Caelynn is “very, very happy” and that things “turned out well for her” since being on the “The Bachelor.” Also spotted in the “Bachelor in Paradise” trailer is the shady rascal Jordan Kimball, who got engaged to Raleigh’s Jenna Cooper at the end of last season’s “Bachelor in Paradise,” only to break things off when a reality TV blogger accused Jenna of cheating on Jordan — something Jenna steadfastly denies. Jenna is reportedly now writing a book about the ordeal. “Bachelor in Paradise” will air on Mondays and Tuesdays at 8 p.m. on ABC throughout the rest of the summer. We’ll do recaps this summer, but likely only when Caelynn does something “newsworthy.”
