How can HTML be allowed in Author Bio?

Is there a way to prevent WP from stripping the HTML from the author bio? I need it to keep my paragraphs.

Thanks in advance! :)

Edit - Although this question has been answered, I will clarify that I was referring to the Bio textarea when editing individual users.

  • remove the filter that formats the description. put this in your theme's functions.php:

    remove_filter('pre_user_description', 'wp_filter_kses');

    EDIT - I should mention, if you allow random people to register and add their own bio for display on the site, not filtering that text could enable bad things.
