Sing it with us now: Almost Paradise!
Bachelor in Paradise season three is upon us, Bachelor Nation, when rejected and rose-less contestants descend upon Mexico in an attempt to once again find true love on TV. With the new season set to premiere on Tuesday, Aug. 2, after The Bachelorette finishes its run, ABC unveiled the first batch of BIP castmembers, and we have to admit, we're a little disappointed with the complete lack of suitors from JoJo Fletcher's current season so far. (We're sure they will be announced in due time, but we can't decide if we want Chad Johnson there or not, to be honest. We're CONFLICTED.)
The line-up is stocked with many of Ben Higgins' ladies, as well as some Paradise vets...
Here is the full line-up of BIP season three's original cast, with new contestants arriving each episode. You'll note there's A LOT more women than men, which is par for the course on BIP as roses are handed out in each episode, with two contestants being ousted from the beach:
From Ben Higgins' season of The Bachelor: Professional twins Emily and Haley Ferguson, Leah Block, Izzy Goodkind, Lace Morris, Amanda Stanton and Jubilee Sharpe
From Kaitlyn Bristowe's season of The Bachelorette: Jared Haibon (who went to Paradise in season two...will Ashley Iaconetti follow him back for another shot at love?!)
Veterans: Carly Waddell (Chris Soules' season and BIP season two, where she had her heart broken by Kirk) and Sarah Herron (Sean Lowe's season and BIP season one)
People was the first to report the first wave of contestants.
Bachelor in Paradise premieres Tuesday, Aug. 2 on ABC.
