Great news, lovers of drama: Bachelor in Paradise is moving into a tropical location to film, and ABC has thrown parachutes to some pretty sexy castaways.
People has announced who is in transit to Mexico as we speak, and it’s a totally… something group. Though they haven’t announced the three guys from Andi Dorfman’s season who will be joining, they and several others have been confirmed to us, but aren’t on this the official list.
That can only mean one thing: shrouded drama is waiting in the wings. Perhaps staggered arrivals will add a little extra layer of complication to the romances ABC hopes to brew over tiki torches and rum-heavy drinks? We’ll see. You can check out the full list here, but this is what we’ve got on the record from People for now.
From Juan Pablo Galavis’s Season 18, runner-up Clare Crawley must’ve healed her heart with her green vegetable regimen, because she made the list. First night departer Lacy Faddoul is also heading south for the summer, which is funny, considering she seemed so out of her element on Bachelor. The sweet caretaker owns her own nursing home and we wish her the best. Elise Mosca will be going, too.
From Desiree Hartsock’s Bachelorette Season 9, bad boy single dad Ben Scott is slated to join the crew, and we hope he pulls a Kalon McMahon on BP3 and makes this all about the “right reasons” (we’re positive he still knows the words). Early departee Robert Graham is also heading to Tulum, and we look forward to getting to know him.
Sean Lowe’s most mean-mugging ex, AshLee Frazier, made the cut, and we must reiterate: we are dying for her and Clare Crawley to become best friends or worst enemies. We honestly don’t care, so long as we get plenty of screen time with the two most real-talking exes in the franchise’s history. (You hear that, powers that be?) Sweethearts Daniella McBride and Sarah Herron are onboard the love boat, and we love them. That is all.
Bachelor Pad 2 and Bachelorette 4 alum Graham Bunn is going to put his hotness to good use, and we haven’t forgotten him, despite his absence from our televisions since 2011. You may not remember Michelle Kujawa, but we’re happy to see her name on the list. The Season 14 Bachelor babe infamously kissed Jake Pavelka… right before he dumped her!
Check out the full list of folks heading down over here — because three guys does not a summer show make — then tell us in the comments how you think they’ll join the crew, and what you think of the cast so far!
