If when you woke up today it sort of felt like Christmas morning, it’s probably because tonight marks the premiere of ABC’s newest reality guilty pleasure, Bachelor in Paradise. Thanks to those evil genius Bachelor/ette producers, we get to watch some of our fave alums travel to Mexico to mingle and possibly find love (or something like it). But sadly, not everyone will find their match, and in just the first ep, two ladies will be sent packing!

But first, we’ll bear witness to love blooming between such odd couples as Juan Pablo Galavis’s woman scorned Clare Crawley and gone-too-soon hunk Robert Graham (Desiree Hartsock’s season), who go on a romantic beach date — complete with Clare’s signature water makeout session. That’s followed by Sarah Herron (Bachelor 17) and recent Andi Dorfman eliminee Marcus Grodd’s sinkhole rappelling date… yes, you read that correctly. Unfortunately for sweet Sarah, Marcus is already smitten by JPG contestant Lacy Faddoul. Then it’s time for Michelle Money and Marquel Martin to horse around a bit, before Lacy and Marcus finally get their alone time. Bow chicka wow wow!

But none of these people have anything to worry about, come Rose Ceremony time. And Before we even get to the actual doling out of roses, Michelle Kujawa voluntarily removes herself from the show — though she certainly doesn’t go quietly into the night! Now, with only one woman in jeopardy, it comes down to the final rose, which sees Ben Scott picking between Sarah and Daniella McBride to stay in paradise. So who gets it?

That would be Sarah, and her fellow Sean Lowe contestant Daniella must head back north of the border for good. We’re not too worried for this bubbly blonde, however; not only is she gorge, but she’s also based in LA, aka the homebase for Bachelor Nation. Something tells us this gal will be back enjoying the dating scene in no time.

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