The latest Bachelor spinoff, Bachelor in Paradise, premiered this week, and it was everything I hoped and dreamed it would be. Tears, drama, dates, ocean makeouts, Chris Harrison in casual beachwear, a discussion with a raccoon, name-calling, crazy cleavage, made-up words — and that's just the premiere. Plus, a contestant already left, and they didn't even have time to explain the controversy about it.
