In two weeks, Bachelor in Paradise will take nine men and 11 women to Mexico, as those involved search for romance, love, sex and a whole lot of alcohol.

But while fans of thise franchise were likely already excited for the sixth season this summer, ABC has now gone ahead and given them a fresh reason to look forwrd to the chaos to come:

One of these upcoming episodes will feature the first same-sex kiss in show history.

And, by the looks of what transpires in this extended trailer, it won’t just be any same-sex kiss, either.

Which is to say: it won’t be some drunken dare or one-off. There will be real feelings behind the girl-on-girl spit swap.

Ahead of this preview’s release, Demi Burnett jumped on Twitter and wrote the following:

"Spoiler alert: I’m a queer queen."

She then backed up this declaration via her actions and her words on Season 6, making out with a mystery woman on a bed at one point and then saying  on air:

"I don’t care who sees this. I know that I love this girl. I’m just so happy that I found her, and I can definitely picture being with her for the rest of my life."

It’s worth noting, however, that this same trailer shows Burnett and contestant Derek Peth in the hot tub together, indicating that we may have a love triangle on our hands this season.

Elsewhere, the lengthy promo promises "heartbreaking drama," "more crying than ever before," which would really be saying something, an actual fight that breaks out between the men on the beach … and multiple proposals at season’s end.

There’s a lot going on here, folks.

Like, a whole lot.

The sneak also teases the wedding of Krystal Nielson and Chris Randone, who met on Season 5 of Bachelor in Paradise last year and got engaged at the end of the summer.
