Everything We Know About The New Bachelor In Paradise

The Bachelor in Paradise is kind of like the drunker, less buttoned-up little brother of The Bachelor and The Bachelorette. It's purportedly about finding love just as much as its predecessors, but the whole "let's put 30 men and women together on an island for 18 days and see what happens" feels a little more Real World than The Bachelor.
We're pretty okay with that, actually. Obviously, there are a lot more hookups. And it's super fun to see the big personalities clash. (We're personally looking forward to seeing Chad piss off each and every contestant individually.)
This season, we'll see recent Bachelor and Bachelorette castoffs — most of them from Ben Higgins' and JoJo Fletcher's seasons — searching for a romantic connection. Here's the initial cast list, per ABC.
