"With the power vested in me, I now officially declare Paradise OPEN!!!" Jesse captioned the image, announcing that Bachelor in Paradise's eighth season had begun production.
Jesse also added the hashtags "BachelorNation" and "BachelorInParadise" to his post.
Jesse, an ESPN sports analyst who starred on The Bachelor's fifth season back in 2004, is continuing his role as host of the franchise after hosting The Bachelor's 26th season starring Clayton Echard, which just wrapped on TV in March, and The Bachelorette's nineteenth season, which just finished filming.
Reality Steve spoiler blogger Steve Carbone also tweeted a picture of Lace stepping off a trolley wearing a white crop top, flowy skirt and platform sandals on Wednesday.
"(SPOILER}: We've got an old school contestant down in Paradise this season," Carbone tweeted alongside the picture of Lace in Mexico.
"Not to mention a former 'winner' who got engaged back in Season 3. Lace Morris will be on this season."
Lace, who was a real estate agent at the time of her first Paradise stint, and Grant "mutually" split in November 2016, only two months after their engagement aired on television.
Shortly after their breakup, Grant was spotted out with another woman and Lace confessed she was "shocked" he had moved on so quickly, adding that there was no chance of a reconciliation. Several months later, Grant told Us Weekly that his relationship with Lace was "very volatile."
Lace admitted during a June 2017 episode of "The Ben & Ashley I: Almost Famous Podcast" that it was "definitely lust" with Grant and not genuine love.

"I think lust is like sexual and you kind of have this fantasy of what you want. You want it to work, you think this guy is attractive, you think you're in love. It's almost forced," Lace said on the podcast.
Bachelor in Paradise will be taking over the Monday slot Dancing with the Stars previously held as well as the Tuesday slot that had been filled by The Bachelorette for the last two years.
The Bachelorette's nineteenth season is set to premiere on Monday, July 11 at 8PM ET/PT, and so Bachelor in Paradisewill eventually replace the show in that time period, presumably in late September or October.
As for Dancing with the Stars, the ABC reality dancing competition is moving to a new home on the streaming service Disney+ this fall after 16 seasons on ABC.
Bachelor in Paradise's eighth season will continue to feature Wells Adams in his bartending role, and ABC entertainment president Craig Erwich recently hinted that the new season will star a great bunch of alums.
"When I think of some of the people they have in mind to come back for Bachelor in Paradise, I think it's going to continue to be a very watched and very discussed block of programming on Mondays and Tuesdays," Craig told Deadline in May.
The Bachelorette fan-favorite Rodney Mathews hinted he'd be interested in a stint on Paradise, telling Us in March, "I'm always open to [love]. I'm really hoping to find it. I think I have a weird feeling, I feel like this is my year. I'm going to speak it into existence, manifest it."
As for women, it's likely many of Clayton and Matt James' exes will make an appearance.
Bachelor in Paradise's seventh edition last summer was co-hosted by a lineup of celebrity guests, including rapper Lil Jon and former N'SYNC boyband member Lance Bass. Wells had served in a new "Master of Ceremonies" role in which he led the Rose Ceremonies, but he had to share the hosting responsibilities.
Chris Harrison previously hosted the entire The Bachelor franchise, but he exited the show in early 2021 after a racism scandal exploded during Matt's season. (Matt was the first Black The Bachelor star ever, and Chris defended his winner Rachael Kirkconnell's past racially-insensitive actions).
Chris had been with The Bachelor franchise for nearly two decades given he had began hosting the show all the way back with Season 1 that premiered in early 2002.
ABC renewed Bachelor in Paradise for an eighth season back in April. The new season is expected to feature shocking twists, surprises, unexpected guests, and some unlikely relationships, per usual.
After ABC announced The Bachelorette's later-than-usual Season 19 premiere, speculation thatBachelor in Paradise was being canceled began circulating online, but the franchise's creator later set the record straight.
"Canceled??? No f-cking way!!! #BachelorinParadise forever!" Mike Fleiss tweeted in response to cancellation rumors.
