“Paradise is always fun. It’s the show in the franchise that is the comedy, so I love that,” he said. “I love making the relationships with the cast members. I’m a bartender, but I’m more of a therapist to all of them.”
He continued, “We always get three or four really good love stories out of the thing, and it’s really beautiful to see these people get engaged at the end. So, I’m excited for that.”
In addition to Paradise, Wells joked that he “gained 25 pounds in two weeks” hosting Hulu’s new pizza-cooking competition series Best In Dough, which premieres this fall.
“I did a video of Day 1 of me stepping on the scale and Day 10 of me stepping on the scale,” he shared. “It wasn’t 25 pounds, but it was a substantial amount of weight.”
