Carly Waddell has no filter on Bachelor in Paradise, but that's why fans have come to love her.

Carly is a 30-year-old singer and songwriter from Arlington, TX, who currently resides in Nashville, TN. She first entered The Bachelor franchise by competing for Chris Soules on Season 19.

Carly went on to appear on Bachelor in Paradise 2 and 3, but as of now (Season 3 is currently airing), she's single in Paradise because she dumped potential love prospect Evan Bass, who had a pretty big crush on her.

Carly makes self-deprecating jokes while also poking fun at other contestants. She gets down on herself, but there's still a lot of time for her to make a connection with a guy. So will Carly find her future husband on the show? We'll find out soon enough.
