They’re back… in paradise! ABC confirmed its first batch of cast members featured in the upcoming Season 3 of Bachelor in Paradise on Wednesday, June 8, and many familiar faces from Bachelor Ben Higgins’ season will be joining the spinoff.
“They all left The Bachelor or The Bachelorette with broken hearts, but now they’ll travel to a romantic paradise, hoping to turn a potential summer fling into the real thing,” the network teases in its release.
Mom of two Amanda Stanton, 26, who made it to Bachelor Ben’s final four, will appear on the spinoff series for her shot at love. The esthetician, who’s based in Orange Country, California, shares two young daughters — Kinsley, 4, and Charlie, 2 — with her ex-husband, Nick Buonfiglia.
Other familiar faces from Higgins’s Season 20 include war veteran Jubilee Sharpe, twins Emily and Haley Ferguson, Episode 1 villain Lace Morris and graphic designer Izzy Goodkind.
Love is possible to find in paradise. As BIP Season 2 viewers witnessed, two contestants, Jade Roper and Tanner Tolbert, actually fell for each other during filming and married after dating for less than a year. Their wedding ceremony was filmed for ABC’s Valentine’s Day special, The Bachelor at 20: A Celebration of Love.
The series will document the singles over a six-week time span. All of the reality personalities will live together in “a secluded and dreamy paradise” in Mexico. Additional cast members from Bachelorette JoJo Fletcher’s Season 12 will be announced in the coming weeks.
