Chris Harrison is frequently known to proclaim things as the "best ever." This season of Bachelor in Paradise is no different.

"It's the best season we've ever had," Harrison said on the Bachelor Party podcast about Demi Burnett's storyline. Harrison said Demi's story is fascinating, and he's extremely proud of the season, despite Dean Unglert's "atrocious" mustache. Regarding Demi, he said he's "proud" of her "and the young lady she has in her life."

The longtime host also addressed the fight seen in the promo and said it was "an unfortunate incident that got out of hand."

In a press release, ABC teased the sparks fly fast for Blake Horstmann who knew some of his costars before heading to Paradise. But Hannah Goodwin and Caelynn Miller-Keyes have their hopes dashed when Blake lands on another woman. And then there's his ex-girlfriend Kristina Schulman. Yeah, it's complicated.

The two-night premiere continues on Tuesday, Aug. 6 with more drama between Blake, Kristina and Caelynn. Three women head home at the rose ceremony, resulting in a last-minute scramble at the cocktail party.

Meet the cast below.

Derek Peth

Derek was originally on Jojo's season of The Bachelorette, then got engaged to Taylor Nolan on season four of Bachelor in Paradise. They have since split, and now he's back to try again!

Caelynn Miller-Keyes

She was Hannah B's rival beauty queen during Colton's season of The Bachelor, and now she's looking for love in Paradise.

She was famous for her many traumas during Arie's season of The Bachelor, and then she was humiliated by a jerk last season of Paradise, so hopefully things go better for her this time around.

Kevin Fortenberry

He was sadly only just eliminated from Hannah's season. Famous for that one time he got injured during a game of rugby and was given a cast that looked to be from the civil war era. 

Chris Bukowski

Talk about a throwback! Chris was a contestant back in season eight of The Bachelorette where he competed for Emily Maynard's heart, and then he appeared on Bachelor Pad season three, and then he quit season one and season two of Bachelor in Paradise. Could this finally work out for him?!
