Bachelor in Paradise's cast has reportedly been revealed.
The identities of the 13 former The Bachelor and The Bachelorette contestants who will be participating in Bachelor in Paradise -- which will basically share the same concept as Bachelor Pad but be filmed in an exotic location instead of the usual Los Angeles mansion -- have been leaked, according toPeople.
The new The Bachelor-spinoff, premiering on August 4 on ABC, will once again feature returning bachelors and bachelorettes, both favorites and villains, looking to get a second chance at finding love.
Bachelor Pad's third season concluded in Summer 2012 with Nick Peterson and Rachel Truehart being crowned its winning couple and Peterson claiming the $250,000 prize all for himself much to his partner's shock and dismay.
Ten of the 13 contestants who will reportedly be appearing on Bachelor in Paradise are as follows:
- Graham Bunn, a 35-year-old former basketball player who competed for DeAnna Pappas on The Bachelorette's fourth season
- AshLee Frazier, a 33-year-old professional organizer who finished as the second runner-up on Sean Lowe's seventeenth edition of The Bachelor. She had been linked to former The Bachelor star Brad Womack and former The Bachelorette bachelor Michael Garafola following her stint on the show.
- Robert Graham, a 31-year-old in marketing who got rejected by The Bachelorette's ninth-season star Desiree Hartsock in the beginning of her season.
- Sarah Herron, a 27-year-old designer and art director who got cut at the end of a group date when competing for Sean Lowe.
- Michelle Kujawa, a 30-year-old franchise veteran who had competed for Jake Pavelka's heart on The Bachelor's fourteenth season and then appeared on the first season of Bachelor Pad.
- Elise Mosca, a 28-year-old first grade teacher and former beauty pageant contestant who was eliminated by Juan Pablo Galavis in the fourth episode of Season 18.
- Ben Scott, a 30-year-old single dad who made a big impression on Desiree Hartsock when she allowed her to meet his son Brody on the first night.
In addition, three bachelors from Andi Dorfman's currently-airing edition of The Bachelorette will reportedly appear on Bachelor in Paradise.
