The Cookie Monster may have landed firmly in the friend zone during Andi Dorfman’s season of The Bachelorette, but if ABC’s latest promo for Bachelor in Paradise is to believed, the ladies in Mexico have put our fun-loving cutie pie Marquel Martin squarely in the sex pot zone.

Michelle Money, Clare Crawley, and Danielle Ronco are all about Marquel in the promo — at least that’s how the show’s editors make it appear. The spot starts with Prints Charming wearing the least amount of clothes we’ve ever seen him in — no bow tie? We’re so confused! — and then he takes his shirt off to reveal even more skin. Yes, please.

Oh yeah, and then in the next shot he gets on a horse and the super deep-voiced announcer man says “this stud’s getting back in the saddle.” Horse puns!


The fan favorite looks as cute as ever as he grins at the camera and says, “I’ll just take that and run with it.” Cue hearts everywhere melting into cookie dough.

We’re glad to see M-squared back where he belongs on our small screens, and can’t wait to see how he fares on the beaches of Paradise. Check out the promo below, then tell us in the comments how happy you are to see him back!
