Bachelor in Paradise is about to sock it to us one more time, and the show just provided its first glimpses at the guest hosts hitting the sand.
On Thursday, July 29, the ABC dating series, which hasn't aired new episodes since 2019, posted photos to its official Instagram account of the four celebrities who will be filling in for former host Chris Harrison. The stars—David Spade, Lance Bass, Lil Jon and Tituss Burgess—were photographed from the show's set on the beach in Mexico.
"Ya buoy! [sparkle emoji] Welcome our amazing guest hosts to #BachelorInParadise! [island and rose emoji]," the caption read.
One person not included in the carousel was franchise mainstay Wells Adams, who will perform his familiar role as show bartender but will also serve as master of the rose ceremonies.
The absence did not go unnoticed by Wells himself, who quipped in the comments section, "Did you guys lose my picture?" He also included a crying emoji.
However, he has clearly joined the other guys on the beach, as the 37-year-old radio host shared a photo of himself sitting next to David on the set. "Nature is healing," read his caption.
Among this year's Bachelor in Paradise contestants who expressed their excitement in the comments was Conor Brennan, best known for kissing Katie Thurston while wearing a cat costume on the current season of The Bachelorette. "@lancebass dance party or nah??," he quipped, adding a fire emoji.
Lance reposted the carousel on his own Instagram account and included the caption, "Check out my new band!! The Paradise Boys. Album out this fall. We also happen to be hosting the new season of @bachelorinparadise [praise hands emojis]."
The NSYNC star, 42, proved he had done his homework by also adding, "Get ready for 'the most dramatic season in Paradise history!'"
