The Full, Confirmed 2019 Bachelor In Paradise Cast List
UPDATE: This story was originally published on June 3, 2019.
What’s better than watching The Bachelor? Sitting down to The Bachelorette. And what’s better than a season of The Bachelorette? An admittedly short season of Bachelor In Paradise. BIP started as a way for ABC to fill time between seasons of Dancing With The Stars and The Bachelor, and now, it’s arguably Bachelor Nation’s most interesting and entertaining show. On Bachelor In Paradise, there’s no pretense — the contestants just show up, and they’re let loose in “paradise,” a.k.a. a beach in Mexico. It’s kind of like Avengers: Infinity War, if the group were trying to find love and not Thanos. Full-on mayhem. And so, as summer temperatures heat up and the Bachelorette charges on, that leads Bachelor In Paradise fans to the most important question of the year: who will be on Bachelor In Paradise in 2019?
As of now, we know quite a few people (and one bartender) who'll be spending summer on the beach. Beyond that, the contestants who are most likely to turn up on Bachelor In Paradise are the contestants from the most recent seasons of The Bachelor and The Bachelorette. They’re freshest in the public’s minds, and they’re still ripe and ready to be on film for another six weeks. While ABC hasn't announced the full list of Bachelor In Paradise contestants for 2019, here's who's absolutely confirmed for Bachelor in Paradise 2019, according to Good Morning America, and the trailers released during The Bachelorette.
We will update this story as more cast members join Bachelor in Paradise throughout the season.
Jordan Kimball From Becca's Bachelorette Season & Bachelor In Paradise
As confirmed by the new BIP trailer, Jordan will also return to the beach to look for a new queen after his relationship with Jenna from season 5 turned into a genuinely dramatic breakup. He'll be bringing his one-of-a-kind one-liners and hopefully that sweet side we saw last season, too.
Hayley Ferguson From Ben's Bachelor Season & BIP
Also confirmed in the new trailer is the return of a Paradise staple: Hayley Ferguson. It looks like she's up to their usual antics (sans her twin, Emily), but who knows, maybe she'll surprise us this time.
Luke Stone From Hannah's Bachelorette Season
Another confirmation from the Bachelor in Paradise trailer is Luke S., aka the guy who got Luke P. to make the Arthur fist around mid-season on this year's Bachelorette. Not sure why he'd get back into the chaos, but I suppose nothing could be worse than facing off with Luke P., so it's all uphill from here.
Dean Unglert From Rachel's Bachelorette Season & Bachelor In Paradise
Dean is probably pretty glad that the heat seems to be on a few other dudes at the beach this year. We're just happy he decided to bring along his new mustache for the ride.
Chris Harrison, The Most Dramatic Host Ever
It wouldn't be summer at the beach without good ol' Chris telling people when to hand out roses and terrifying anyone with a dry-cleaning bill as he drinks that strawberry daiquiri in the pool.
Christian Estrada From Becca's Bachelorette Season
If you don't remember Christian, that's probably because he went home on limo night. Some fast facts: He's an ex semi-pro soccer player and he moved to the U.S. from Mexico at age 3.
Tahzjuan Hawkins From Colton's Bachelor Season
Another semi-familiar face is that of Tahzjuan, who didn't have much time to make an impression and was eliminated on night one. We don't know much about her, but hopefully she'll be able to make a bit stronger impression on her second round in Bachelor Nation.
Jen Saviano From Ben's Bachelor Season & BIP
Jen made it about halfway through Ben's season and walked away looking like a nice gal who got away. Afterward, she jetted to Paradise, where she started romancing then-future Bachelor Nick Viall, who dumped her on the beach and went on to star on the franchise's flagship series. We've officially seen her in a preview as of Aug. 19.
Caitlin Clemmens From Colton's Bachelor Season
Don't confuse her with Caelynn, though they both starred on Colton's Bachelor season and have similar tastes in hair styles. She only made it to week three on season 23 and is back to hopefully find someone more suited to her than Colton was.
Chase McNary From Jojo's Bachelorette Season
Chase was a finalist on Jojo's Bachelorette season, but he lost out to Jojo's now fiance (and Fixer Upper-style TV show co-host) Jordan Rodgers. He was pretty hurt at the time, but now that he's healed, he's hoping for romance on the beach.
Matt Donald From Hannah's Bachelorette Season
Gone, but not forgotten, sweet Matt Donald started out Hannah's season on a high note, helping everyone remember his name by singing it to the tune of "Old MacDonald." Hopefully, we get to know him better in Paradise.
Connor Saeli From Hannah's Bachelorette Season
Sweet, sweet Connor. He was a little too passive when he was hoping to woo Hannah Brown on The Bachelorette, and as a result he was sent home. But he's a gem! Don't sleep on him, Paradise ladies!
Angela Amezcua From Nick's Bachelor Season & BIP
Oh man, oh man. Angela got her heart broken last season on Bachelor In Paradise, when Eric Bigger ended their relationship. This season, her ex is on the beach (Clay), so there's sure to be drama.
Revian Chang From Colton's Bachelor Season
She didn't get to stick around for long on Colton's season, being eliminated on night one. Now, Revian is back and hoping to make a stronger impression. Fun fact: Her hair was blonde on The Bachelor.
Brianna "Bri" Barnes From Colton's Bachelor Season
Bri made it to week three on Colton's season, but was eventually sent home. In real life, she's a model, so she's sure to draw some attention on that beach in Mexico.
Whitney Fransway From Nick's Bachelor Season
You might remember Whitney as the kind woman on Nick Viall's Bachelor season who was unceremoniously dumped on the beach during the second two-on-one date during Nick's season. Apparently, that moment didn't ruin her view of beach-bound dating, because she's at it again.
