The return of everyone’s favorite show that is completely out of control, tremendously entertaining, and totally chaotic is here: Bachelor in Paradise! Beginning on September 27, all of your favorite former contestants from The Bachelor and The Bachelorette will be traveling to Mexico to compete for a second chance at love.
This week marks the beginning of Season 8, and while the premiere of Paradise typically takes place in the middle of August, the schedule for this season will be a little bit different. You are aware of the proverb that asserts “good things come to those who wait.” This season takes a page out of the playbook of Love Island and breaks up potential couples halfway through the season. Reality Steve explained that all of the couples will be split up, with each member of the sexe traveling to a different resort to socialize with singles.
It should come as no surprise that this shift will result in a good deal of upheaval. “This place is beyond nuts. It’s completely out of control, “On the Here for the Right Reasons podcast, presenter Jesse Palmer made the following statement. “There is just so much mayhem, so much drama, and yes, things that have never been witnessed before are going place in Paradise,” said the reporter.
ABC has also released a teaser for the upcoming season, which promises that various fan favorites will be on a mission to find love (spoiler alert: Michael Allio, commonly known as “Papa Mike,” will be returning). In addition to that, a significant number of Clayton Echard’s ladies are present. That being said, without further ado, allow me to (re)introduce you to the cast of Bachelor in Paradise 2022.
Long long no see, Logan. If you’ve been living under a rock, you might not know that during the most current season of The Bachelorette, co-Bachelorette, Logan dated Rachel until he realized he had deeper feelings for Gabby, which prompted him to make a rapid switch up in relationships. After that, he contracted COVID and was sent back home. Womp.
Logan, who is now 26 years old and hails from San Diego, California, is a production technician outside of the franchise.
You might remember Teddi, the 25-year-old nurse who worked in the surgical ward, from the season of The Bachelor that Clayton Echard hosted. According to Distractify, Teddi was eliminated during the seventh rose ceremony despite the fact that she had gotten the first impression rose from the bachelor. I hope you have better luck this time!
Michael, who hails from Ohio and is currently known to everyone as “Papa Mike,” is a business owner. Michael is 38 years old. And speaking for myself, I am delighted to see Michael’s friendly grin make a comeback for this season of Bachelor in Paradise. According to Entertainment Weekly, this loving father ended up leaving Katie Thurston’s season early because his newborn baby required his attention. It’s important to hang on to the good ones.
Take a good look at these! According to her description on the Bachelor Nation Wiki, Shanae, who is 30 years old and is from Ohio, works as a recruiter. Following the viewing of the teaser, Shanae comes across as someone who enjoys drama, which makes perfect sense given that she participated in Clayton’s season of The Bachelor. It would appear that she has such a strong affinity for the holiday that she maintains a Christmas tree throughout the year.
Andrew, age 27, is making a comeback after the conclusion of Katie Thurston’s season of The Bachelorette. When Andrew was removed from the team just before the hometown dates, it was an emotional rollercoaster for everyone, therefore I hope that this professional football player is able to meet his soul mate in Paradise.
Serene, 27 years old, hails from Oklahoma City, Oklahoma, where she currently works as an elementary school educator. She is another one of the many ex-girlfriends of Clayton who will be joining the cast of the upcoming season of BiP. See you soon, Serene!
According to Screen Rant, despite the fact that 28-year-old Brandon appeared to win the heart of Michelle Young (as well as her parents), he finished the competition in second place and ultimately lost the opportunity to win her over to Nayte Olukoya.
Brandon is a traveling nurse recruiter, and he is come to make the life of one extremely fortunate lady a lot more joyful. And here’s hoping that there won’t be any more Neil Lane engagement rings that end up getting lost in the water:
Brittany, who is 25 years old and is from Chicago, Illinois, is a model. She is perhaps most known for being one of the five ladies that made their big debut on the fourth episode of Matt James’ season. Poor Britt eventually became the focus of a vicious rumor, and she was removed from the game not long afterward.
One more from Gabby and Rachel’s shared bachelorette experience! According to his Instagram account, Jacob, who is 28 years old and lives in Scottsdale, Arizona, is employed in real estate and mortgage finance. I’m sure you remember his fascinating method for gaining Rachel’s heart, but just in case you don’t, he basically informed Gabby that he was only there for Rachel and that he would self-eliminate if she were the only option. I’m sure you remember that, but just in case you don’t, I’ll remind you. Ouch.
Genevieve, it’s great to have you back! According to Bachelor Nation Wiki and Cosmopolitan, this contestant has been working as a bartender in Los Angeles for the past 27 years. The teaser for the next season featured Genevieve in a significant amount of screen time; might this be a preview of future episodes?
According to Entertainment Weekly, she is most known for “disliking Shanae,” which is the name of another contender. Given this information, it wouldn’t surprise me if the competition descended into chaos.
11 Justin Glaze
This participant may look familiar to you from Katie Thurston’s season or from his confessions in the new trailer. A sales consultant for investments, Justin is 28 years old and hails from Baltimore, Maryland.
According to her Instagram account, Hailey is a pediatric nurse with the age of 26 and she hails from Orlando, Florida. In addition, she is one of the ladies that will be returning after the conclusion of Clayton Echard’s season. Right now, there aren’t a lot of other specifics that can be shared, but I’m looking forward to getting to know Hailey better in September.
Even though Romeo’s name was chosen with the franchise in mind, the real concern is whether or not he possesses the kind of passionate nature that would be befitting of his famous moniker. You might remember Romeo from Michelle Young’s season if you watched it. FYI, he’s a data scientist based in New York and he’s 33 years old.
Sierra Jackson, who is 27 years old and works as a yoga instructor in Dallas, Texas, is on her way to the destination. She is also making her reappearance following the season of Clayton Echard, during which she famously cautioned him not to do something stupid and is now making her presence after that season. Well, I think we can all guess how the situation went up. Sierra, I am delighted to have you back.
According to his Instagram bio, Casey is a musician and advertising creative director. He is 37 years old and is from Miami Beach in the state of Florida. The last time we saw him, he was participating in Michelle Young’s season of The Bachelorette, and now he’s back for another shot at finding love.
16 Chin, Jill
It is very clear that Clayton destroyed the hearts of a great number of young women, including this architectural historian from Rhode Island. Jill, age 27, is also returning for a second time in the hopes of finding the person who will complete her in Paradise.
Kira is a physician and she is 33 years old. She was born and raised in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania. As a result of her participation in the 26th season of The Bachelor, she is entering Paradise already familiar with a large number of the other ladies there. It appears as if the purpose of this season is for Clayton’s exes to get together and catch up.
18 Hunter Haag
Hunter, who is 29 years old and from from Charlotte, North Carolina, is a human resources professional at Walt Disney World, where she formerly worked in the role of a Disney princess. In Clayton’s season, Hunter was eliminated in week 5, and I cannot wait for her to come back for the next one.
19 Lace Morris
Lace is a real estate agent that was born and raised in Denver, Colorado. She is 32 years old. Lace has already made an appearance on Bachelor in Paradise, and she has also been a contestant on ABC’s The Bachelor. This is not the first time she has done either of these things. In season 20, Lace was one of the contestants vying for Ben Higgins’ attention.
During the third season of Big Brother, Lace and Grant Kemp became engaged. But it seems as though nothing went according to plan… Hello once again!
