Bachelor in Paradise lands one of Kaitlyn Bristowe's top men
Kaitlyn Bristowe's rejected suitors are taking over Season 2 of Bachelor in Paradise.
Not only is J.J. Lane, aka The Turd, joining the show in his continued search for love, but multiple other suitors are also putting behind their Season 11 heartbreak to head to paradise.
Tanner Tolbert, Jonathan Holloway and just-eliminated Jared Haibon will also be joining Bachelor in Paradise Season 2. (If only J.J.'s bromance partner-in-crime Clint was also returning!)
Jared sold everyone last night when he offered Kaitlyn his coat because she was cold, even as she was breaking up with him. Kaitlyn couldn't even stop the tears because he was such a gentleman and a standup guy until the end. Though Amy Schumer pretty much said what everyone was thinking when it came to J.J., Jared is someone who could actually find love in paradise rather than just provide some comic relief.
Other cast members joining Season 2 include Mikey Tenerelli, Dan Cox, and Kirk DeWindt for the guys. Tenley Molzahn and Clare Crawley, who appeared in Season 1 of the show, will be back for Season 2. Other ladies include Ashley Salter, Ashley Iaconetti (aka Kardashley), Carly Waddell, Juelia Kinney, Jillian Anderson and Jade Roper, who are all from Chris Soules's season of The Bachelor.
So far, Bachelor in Paradise's track record of success seems better than both The Bachelor and The Bachelorette, which very rarely end in an actual marriage. But Marcus Grodd and Lacy Faddoul from Bachelor in Paradise Season 1 just tied the knot. The ceremony was reportedly filmed for the show, and Chris Harrison officiated.
Bachelor in Paradise Season 2 premieres Monday, Aug. 2, on ABC.
