Too much teasing! Bachelor creator Mike Fleiss took to Twitter this week to tease several engagements on the upcoming season of ABC’s summertime spinoff Bachelor in Paradise.

“I have truly shocking BIP news to announce!!!” Fleiss tweeted on Monday, June 27, after this week’s episode of The Bachelorette. “Trying to get clearance to possibly hold a press conference tomorrow… #TheBachelorette.”

He then followed up 12 hours later with a mega spoiler from the steamy series that’s currently taping in Mexico. The show gathers previous Bachelor and Bachelorette contestants in one secluded destination, and naturally, mayhem follows.
