Bachelor in Paradise

Bachelor in Paradise Premiere Party Reunites the Cast — Awkward or All Cool? (PHOTOS)

The drama just kicked off in Tulum, Mexico for us Bachelor in Paradise viewers at home, but we have to remember that filming actually wrapped back in June. So last night’s August 4 premiere party for the show was definitely an interesting reunion of sorts for the cast (and as close as we’ll ever get to a reunion, considering that the spin-off won’t get an “After the Final Rose” type special, boo!). But was it a happy homecoming or awfully awkward?

According to all of the social media action that was happening, it looks like all is well in Bachelor Nation — at least for those in attendance. Most of the gang was all there, including familiar faces like Michelle Money, Robert Graham, Clare Crawley, Graham Bunn, Marcus Grodd, and even the recently eliminated Daniella McBride — say it ain’t so!

Two attendees that caught our eyes: Elise Mosca — who was there at the same time as rumored beau Chris Bukowski, though it wasn’t clear whether they’re still together; and, most surprisingly, Michelle Kujawa. After what we hear happens on the show next week, we’d never have expected her to show her face around these people again. Ah, but time heals all wounds (and hopefully limbs?).

Add in this season’s later entrees like Lucy Aragon, Zack Kalter, and Jesse Kovacs, and you’ve got one helluva night! Plus, everyone seemed to be getting along famously. Perhaps thats because Episode 1 troublemaker AshLee Frazier was conspicuously absent?
