Get ready to fall in love – again – this summer! After Andi Dorfman (hopefully) rides off into the sunset with the winner of “The Bachelorette,” ABC will be premiering its new “Bachelor” spinoff – “Bachelor In Paradise.” The show's announcement was made in late March, but now the cast has been revealed -- and it’s just as awesome as fans had hoped for.
According to E! Online, ABC has confirmed 10 former “Bachelor” and “Bachelorette” contestants for the upcoming show:
From Sean Lowe’s season:
AshLee Frazier, 33, is from Houston. She made it into Sean Lowe’s top 3 before being eliminated. In October 2013 news broke that AshLee was dating Michael Garofola of Desiree Hartsock’s season of “The Bachelorette.”
Sarah Herron, 26, is from Marina Del Ray, California. While she landed the first one-on-one date with Sean, their relationship fizzled by episode 6.
Danielle McBride, 25, is from Belmont, California. Like Sarah, she was also eliminated by Sean Lowe in episode 6.
From Juan Pablo Galavis’ season:
Clare Crawley, 32, is from Sacramento, California. Pretending to be seven months pregnant when she stepped out of the limo, Clare made it into Juan Pablo’s final two. However the Latino dad chose to be with Nikki Ferrell over her. The breakup turned explosive when Clare told him off in front of the cameras.
Lacy Faddoul, 25, is from Antelope Acres, California. The nursing-home owner didn’t make that big of a splash on Juan Pablo’s season of “The Bachelor” because she was eliminated in episode 1.
Elise Mosca, 27, is from Forty Fort, Pennsylvania. The first-grade teacher was eliminated by Juan Pablo in episode 4.
From Jake Pavelka’s season:
Michelle Kujawa, 30, is from Anaheim, California. The office manager was eliminated during episode 3. She has also appeared on “Bachelor Pad.”
From Desiree Hartsock’s season:
Ben Scott, 29, is from Lubbock, Texas. He was made out to be the villain in Desiree Hartsock’s season when he was accused of manipulating the bachelorette and playing the “single dad card.” Ben was sent home in episode 5.
Robert Graham, 31, is from Glendale, Arizona. The advertising entrepreneur flew under the radar during Desiree’s season and was eliminated in episode 2.
From DeAnna Pappas’ season:
Graham Bunn, 33, is from Raleigh, North Carolina. The professional basketball player made it into DeAnna’s top four. However he was eliminated during the hometown dates in week 6.
“Bachelor In Paradise” will premiere on Monday, Aug. 4, for a special six-episode-long arc. Fan-favorite cast members and villains from previous seasons will reunite on an isolated “romantic paradise” to “explore new romantic relationships.” Viewers can expect “new twists, shocking surprises, unexpected guests and some of the most unlikely relationships in ‘Bachelor’ history.”
In addition to the 10 “Bachelor” and “Bachelorette” alums already on board, viewers can look forward to seeing three men from Andi Dorfman’s season join “Bachelor In Paradise.” The names will be revealed at a later date – presumably when they’re eliminated from the show.
