Chris Harrison’s got two tickets to “paradise”! “Bachelor in Paradise” is back for a third season and things are about to get steamy as the ABC reality series returns to Mexico.
The upcoming season will welcome returning “Bachelor in Paradise” cast members like Carly Waddell and Jared Haibon. However, other fan favorites (and villains!) will also be gracing the gorgeous beaches of Sayulita. That’s right — Nick Viall of Andi Dorfman and Kaitlyn Bristowe’s season of “The Bachelorette” is back!
Nick Viall went all the way to the final two on Andi Dorfman’s season only to have his heart broken in the finale. But Nick got his revenge. He revealed on the “After the Final Rose” special that he had sex with Andi while in the fantasy suite. Nick returned the following season for a chance to pursue Kaitlyn Bristowe. Although the other men in the house didn’t appreciate Nick’s addition to the cast, he ultimately developed a strong — and physical — relationship with the bachelorette. Despite their passionate night, Nick didn’t end up winning Kaitlyn’s heart. She got engaged to Shawn Booth in the Season 11 finale.
With his history of being the “runner up,” Nick took to Twitter earlier this week to joke about his addition to the “Bachelor in Paradise” cast:
Will Nick find love on TV the third time around? Photos from the Season 3 premiere show the 35 year old getting cozy with two contestants from Ben Higgins’ season of “The Bachelor” — Isabel Goodkind and Amanda Stanton. Isabel was sent home on night one, but Amanda, a single mom of two from California, made it to the top four. She was eliminated after her hometown date.
