As summer heats up, Chris Harrison is preparing to take Bachelor Nation — and 21 former suitors — back to paradise.
Well, actually, he’s not preparing, he’s already in paradise and no doubt scheming and navigating the drama we’re going to see play out on-screen. Up until this point, few details had been released (thank God there haven’t been any disasters that have halted production again this year). We know Ashley Iaconetti and Jared Haibon get engaged, but that’s about it. We don’t even know how or when that happens.
But finally, after much anticipation and speculation, ABC released the cast list for Bachelor in Paradise season five, and aside from a few unfamiliar faces (like, “Really? They were on the show?”), it’s stacked with favorites from Nick Viall, Rachel Lindsay, Arie Luyendyk Jr., and Becca Kufrin’s seasons. There are even a few familiar faces from Bachelor: Winter Games.
Check out who got an invite — and how we feel about seeing them on our screens again.
