The new season of The Bachelor is almost here, and ABC just released a new promotional photo. In it, Sean Lowe is flashing his charming smile, likely because he’s flanked by 26 gorgeous women who all want to be Mrs. Lowe. But you might notice someone in the background is looking a little... fuzzy. What’s the deal?

As we revealed a few months ago, Sean’s harem of 25 contestants will be joined by a familiar face: The Bachelor Season 16 contestant Kacie Boguskie.  At this point, it may be the worst-kept secret ever that Ben Flajnik’s fourth-place pick will be returning this season for another shot at true love. Like, the secret is so poorly kept that we’re not quite sure why ABC insists on pretending they have a lid on it!

Don’t worry, ABC, your “secret” is safe with us. Oh wait... Whoops!
