This past holiday weekend kicked off two very important things: 1) the beginning of everyone’s favorite sun-filled season, and 2) the one month countdown until our new favorite guilty pleasure, Bachelor in Paradise, premieres! The Bachelor/ette spinoff makes its debut on August 4, and though the exact format of the show is still hazy, we’re finding out more and more as the days pass. And now we’ve even got a brand spankin’ new promo, courtesy of ABC!

If you thought the first sneak peek was a doozy, thing are only getting hotter (and crazier) for round No. 2. First, we have to give those clever producers credit for the sheer amount of eye candy going on in this clip — just try to count the number of bikinis! Plus, as one would guess with any good Bachelor show, we’ve got the requisite water-based makeouts, but this time the jacuzzis have been upgraded to infinity pools and tropical waves. Really classing things up, you guys.


But not so fast — this isn’t all love and luxury. It wouldn’t be right if we didn’t have lots of drama thrown in the mix too! First, we’ve got sweet Sarah Herron complaining about “those girls” that make her uncomfortable (who could have an issue with her?). Then there’s more footage of that insane Michelle Kujawa incident, and, of course, lots and lots of crying. Even Ben Scott gets in with some man tears action!

Other blink-and-you’ll-miss-it moments of note? Robert Graham feeding Clare Crawley pineapple, Graham Bunn and AshLee Frazier kissing with a lot of tongue, and what appears to be Marquel Martin and Michelle Money walking arm in arm. This is really happening, you guys!

Bachelor in Paradise premieres August 4 at 8 p.m. ET/PT on ABC.
