Not to bash the act of looking for love on a dating show, or even competing for $250,000 on a reality TV series—but to combine the two and label the castoffs contestants "all-stars" seems a little wacky, right?

Enter ABC's sexy summer Bachelor/Bachelorette mashup Bachelor Pad.

Already heard about this little gem? Well, here are the heavyweights heating up the house one more time:

Jake Pavelka's leftover ladies Tenley and Gia are in it to win it in the inaugural season of Bachelor Pad, alongside Bachelorette Ali Fedotowskys just-axed men Jesse, Craig M. and "Weatherman" Jonathan. Even Jillian Harris' sneaky Wes is vying for the big bucks (big surprise!).

Also in on the action is:

  • Ashley E. (The Bachelor, Season 14)
  • David G. (The Bachelorette, Season 5)
  • Elizabeth K. (The Bachelor, Season 14)
  • Gwen G. (The Bachelor, Season 2)
  • Jesse K. (The Bachelorette, Season 5)
  • Jessie S. (The Bachelor, Season 14)
  • Juan B. (The Bachelorette, Season 4)
  • Kiptyn (The Bachelorette, Season 5)
  • Krisily, (The Bachelor, Season 7)
  • Michelle K. (The Bachelor, Season 14)
  • Natalie G. (The Bachelor, Season 13)
  • Nikki K. (The Bachelor, Season 13)
  • Peyton W. (The Bachelor, Season 10)

Series high point? Hosts Chris Harrison (one of our faves!) and lovely former Bachelor lady herself, Melissa Rycroft.

So what do you think? Is Bachelor Pad going to be awesome, or just awesomely bad? Are you digging this cast? Fill us in!
