Bachelor Pad viewers can expect the third season of the ABC reality competition to feature a little Polish pride.

Chris Bukowski, a 25-year-old corporate sales director from Chicago, IL -- the 100% percent Polish bachelor who was eliminated from The Bachelorette's eighth edition during last night's broadcast -- is the previously unannounced eighth-season The Bachelorette bachelor competing on Bachelor Pad's third season, which will premiere Monday, July 23 on ABC, Entertainment Weekly reported Tuesday.

ABC announced Bachelor Pad's third-season cast last month, however the announcement omitted the identity of one bachelor from Emily Maynard's currently-airing The Bachelorette season because he was still among Maynard's remaining suitors at the time. 

Monday night's broadcast of The Bachelorette's eighth eighth-season episode featured Maynard traveling to the hometowns of all her final four suitors -- Bukowski; Arie Luyendyk Jr., a 30-year-old race car driver from Scottsdale, AZ; Sean Lowe, a 28-year-old insurance agent from Dallas, TX; and Jef Holm, a 27-year-old entrepreneur from Salt Lake City, UT -- and meeting their families.

Afterward, Maynard and the men reunited for the Rose Ceremony at the Beverly Hills Peninsula Hotel and she eliminated Bukowski after determining that, while he had many qualities she was looking for in a husband and father-figure, her relationships with the other bachelors had progressed faster and become deeper.

Bachelor Pad's third season will feature 15 former The Bachelor and The Bachelorette participants as well as five "Super Fans" -- who have been fans of the show and are interested in competing with or against, and possibly dating, the former bachelors and bachelorettes -- competing to win a $250,000 grand prize.

The former The Bachelor bachelorettes competing on the show are ninth-season bachelorette Erica Rose; eleventh-season bachelorette Sarah Newlon; and sixteenth-season bachelorettes Lindzi Cox, Blakeley Shea, Jamie Otis, Jaclyn Swartz, and Rachel Truehart.

In addition to Bukowski, the former The Bachelorette bachelors competing are fourth-season bachelor Ryan Hoag; fifth-season bachelors Reid Rosenthal, Michael Stagliano and Ed Swiderski; seventh-season bachelor Nick Peterson; and eighth-season bachelors Kalon McMahon and Tony Pieper.

Twins Brittany Taltos and Erica Taltos (who will be competing as one contestant), female contestants Paige Vigil and Donna Zitelli, and male participants Chris Bain and David Mallet will appear on the show as the five "Super Fans" -- making the cast 20 contestants total.
