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.
Bachelor in Paradise's eighth season will continue to feature Wells Adams in his bartending role, and ABC entertainment president Craig Erwich hinted in May that the new season will star a captivating group 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.
Bachelor in Paradise viewers can probably expect to see bachelors from Katie Thurston and Michelle Young's seasons of The Bachelorette. And since Gabby and Rachel's season recently wrapped filming, it's likely some of their men will hit the beach as well.
The Bachelorette fan-favorite Rodney Mathews hinted he'd be interested in a stint on Paradise, telling Us Weekly 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.
However, The Bachelor alum Demi Burnett confirmed she won't be bringing drama to the new season. In fact, she insisted to Us in May that she's done with Bachelor in Paradise for good because she's "way out of their league."
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 temporary "Master of Ceremonies" role in which he led the Rose Ceremonies but 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.
Riley Christian and Maurissa Gunn split not long after their engagement aired on ABC last year.
However, Noah Erb and Abigail Heringer reunited and became a couple after filming the summer spinoff's seventh season together, and they recently moved in together.
Becca Kufrin and Thomas Jacobs also left Paradise single but got back together after filming. The pair just announced their engagement in late May.
After ABC announced The Bachelorette's later-than-usual Season 19 premiere, speculation thatBachelor in Paradisewas 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.
