(E) than anywhere else I can think of, accept maybe Paris

A,D,E are wrong because sentence requires except to make sense
C is wrong as it has then anywhere else which changes the meaning of sentence completely (I would rather be here first then anywhere else (second))

I would certainly rather be here than anywhere else I can think of, accept maybe Paris.

(A) than anywhere else I can think of, accept maybe Paris
(B) than anywhere else I can think of, except maybe Paris
(C) then anywhere else I can think of, except maybe Paris
(D) then anywhere else I can think of, accept maybe Paris
(E) than anywhere else I can think of, accept maybe Paris

Than is for comparison and then is for verb tense.Comparison is required in the statement.
Accept means to agree to something and except means to rule out something.except is required.

Option B is the correct choice.
