First come The Bachelor or The Bachelorette, then comes Bachelor in Paradise. Well, at least that's the journey for some contestants.

The original cast for Bachelor in Paradise season four was announced by ABC on Tuesday, with many of the ladies from Nick Viall's season getting the plane ticket to Mexico, including Corinne Olympios, Raven Gates and Alexis Waters. JoJo Fletcher's former suitors Robby Hayes and Derek Peth, while Bachelor in Paradise season three standout Amanda Stanton is coming back for another shot at love.

Now that we know 16 contestants heading to Paradise, nine Bachelorettes and seven Bachelors, we're already imagining all of the unexpected pairings we'll be seeing when the show premieres on Aug. 8. At least until other cast members start showing up to stir things up. 

So which contestants can we see hitting it off quicker than Jorge the bartender can make a spicy margarita? Here are our bold predictions for the pairings we'll see in the first episode: 

Amanda Stanton, Ben Zorn, Bachelor in a Paradise

ABC

Robby Hayes, Raven Gates, Bachelor in a Paradise

ABC

DeMario Jackson, Taylor Nolan, Bachelor in a Paradise

ABC

Alex W., Kristina Schulman, Bachelor in a Paradise

ABC

Alexis Waters, Vinny Ventiera, Bachelor in a Paradise

ABC

Derek Peth, Danielle Maltby, Bachelor in a Paradise

ABC

Nick Benvenutti, Lacey Mark, Bachelor in a Paradise

ABC

Predictions for first eliminated women: Jasmine Goode. Sorry girl, but we just don't think you can recover from the attempted choking of Nick last season. And we'll go with Taylor Nolan, due to people not wanting unnecessary girl drama in the house/everyone being Team Corinne.

Can't get enough Bachelor in Paradise? Well, head to the E! News Facebook page at 8 p.m. ET/5 p.m. PT as we're hanging with Chad Johnson, the infamous BIP and Bachelorette vet, to discuss the new cast and get his predictions on who will be hooking up in Mexico!

Bachelor in Paradise premieres Tuesday, Aug. 8 on ABC.
