The Bachelor Nation emcee himself took PEOPLE on an exclusive tour of the new Bachelor in Paradise pad.
After last season's eligible castaways looked for love in beautiful Tulum, Mexico, the show is swinging to the country's other coast and the equally stunning Playa Escondida hotel in Sayulita, just south of Puerto Vallarta.

Should they just go ahead and rename all Bachelor franchises The Full Mesnick?
In the first teaser trailer for season 2 of ABC's Bachelor in Paradise, many vets of The Bachelor and The Bachelorette can barely keep it together.
The Bachelorette Recap: One of Kaitlyn's Suitors Has a Full-Scale, Sobbing Breakdown After Getting Eliminated

Due to the nature of The Bachelorette's bizarre, semi-polyamorous approach to dating, more than a few tears were shed on this week's episode as Kaitlyn got closer to making her final choice.
For her part, Kaitlyn continued to feel guilty about her decision to sleep with Nick, as seen in last week's audience-dividing episode. Meanwhile, Shawn was as singularly focused on Nick's relationship with Kaitlyn as ever, likely because this is the first time in his life he's ever not had a woman's undivided attention. That's fair, really.
This week's episode also culled the herd ever more following a rose ceremony and a two-on-one date, and JJ confessed his darkest secret. (Spoiler alert: He cried a little but did not slap himself in the face this time over it. Character progression!) He was not the only crier, though – one of the men dropped to his knees on the cold, Irish ground as his body was wracked with sobs after Kaitlyn didn't hand over a rose. Really!

And you thought that having 25 men vote for either Britt Nilsson or Kaitlyn Bristowe as their next Bachelorette would be the most uncomfortable thing to watch, as a woman, on this season of The Bachelorette. Naïve.
This week, eight of Kaitlyn's suitors took to a boxing ring to fight one another and posture manfully, and Ben Z. ended up sending Jared to the hospital while Kupah appeared more enamored of meeting Laila Ali than interacting with Kaitlyn.
Later, Kupah accused Kaitlyn of only keeping him around as part of a "quota," and then he completely ignored her boundaries when she asked him to leave. It was bad, but more on that below.

Kaitlyn Bristowe is the Bachelorette! She charmed her way into the hearts of the Bachelor Nation – and nearly the Bachelor himself, Chris Soules, on season 19 of The Bachelor. Now Kaitlyn has begun her own journey to love.
THERE YOU HAVE IT!!! I can finally say that I, Kaitlyn Bristowe, am the Bachelorette. What a whirlwind. When Chris Harrison told me the news, of course I was excited. But the first thing that came to mind was, 'How is Britt?' I wanted to run to her and give her a huge hug and make sure she was okay. Britt is a strong woman, so I knew she would handle it well, but that's just not something anyone would want to go through. It was without a doubt the strangest mix of emotions all at once.
I did feel guilty being excited because I knew someone's feelings were hurt. But I was grateful, eager and relieved. As the excitement took over, I was sooo stoked I got to call my mom! I knew how happy she would be for me and that my whole family was probably anxious. I had just been through such a roller coaster of a night, there were so many conversations and emotions happening, I couldn't comprehend doing another cocktail party and then having my first rose ceremony. It was the longest and the best night of my life.

Former Bachelor Chris Soules got a lot of attention for his constant kissing on the show, and now new Bachelorette Kaitlyn Bristowe says she might have him beat.
"I think I broke a record on night one for how many guys I kissed," Bristowe tells PEOPLE. "My mind-set was, 'Damn right I'm going to kiss everybody! I'm trying to find a husband here!' "

The Bachelorette's face-off between Kaitlyn Bristowe and Britt Nilsson may have incited online criticism, but Bristowe – who was revealed to be the last standing woman on Tuesday night's episode – says she doesn't feel the premise went too far.
"I definitely had my concerns and questions," the 29-year-old former dance instructor tells PEOPLE. "But I don't think I would have gone through with it if I thought it was just sexist. At the end of the day, it is still a TV show."
