There will be a winner on tonight’s episode of Bachelor in Paradise—just not during the show itself. Tonight marks the debut of a new ABC promo directed by a female college student, who won a competition from ABC Entertainment Marketing.

The spot for the network’s drama series A Million Little Things was directed by Ellie Gravitte from New York, and will air during the Bachelor in Paradise episode that begins at 8 p.m. Gravitte beat out nine other finalists as part of ABC’s program to provide “aspiring female creators with the opportunity to learn about the importance of creative marketing storytelling and how to turn their passion for short-form filmmaking into a career reality,” said Robert Schefferine, ABC Entertainment Marketing’s vp of production, in a statement.
