The Bachelorette bachelor Ames Brown will be returning to ABC next month.
Brown -- a 31-year-old portfolio manager from New York, NY who was eliminated from The Bachelorette's seventh edition during last night's broadcast -- is the remaining unannounced seventh-season The Bachelorette bachelor competing on Bachelor Pad's second season, which will premiere Monday, August 8 on ABC, Entertainment Weeklyreported Tuesday.
ABC announcedBachelor Pad's second-season cast last month, however the announcement omitted the identities of three bachelors from Ashley Hebert's currently-airing The Bachelorette season because they were still among Hebert's remaining suitors at the time.
Monday night's broadcast of The Bachelorette's eighth seventh-season episode featured Herbert traveling to the hometowns of her final four suitors --- Brown; Ben Flajnik, a 28-year-old winemaker from Sonoma, CA; Constantine Tzortzis, a 30-year-old restaurant owner from Atlanta, GA; and J.P. Rosenbaum, a 34-year-old construction manager from New York, NY -- and meeting their families.
Afterward, Hebert and the men reunited at The Bachelorette mansion in Malibu, CA and she eliminated Brown after determining that, while he was an incredible and unique person, she didn't have a romantic connection with him.
Bachelor Pad's second season will feature 18 former The Bachelor and The Bachelorette participants competing to win a $250,000 grand prize. The Big Brother-like The Bachelor franchise spinoff began taping on June 7 and wrapped its initial production in late June, according to host Chris Harrison.
"It is incredible and will far surpass anything we came close to producing last summer," Harrison gushed last month. "From start to finish this show will entertain like never before."
