The new season of Bachelor In Paradise is still a few months away, but cast rumors have been circulating for weeks. That said, a lot of people were looking forward to seeing “villain” Chad Johnson in Mexico this summer.

After being kick off Season 3 of Paradise, a lot of people didn’t think he’d be back. However, Chad confirmed he would be on Paradise on Twitter as well as during different interviews, so many believed that he had inked a deal to try to find love again.

And then he tweets the following.

With a Twitter feed full of Paradise-related things, Chad was clearly excited for another chance to be in the spotlight. But just as quickly as he announced he would be on the show, he announced he would not be on the show.

Mike Fleiss’ Response To Chad Johnson

After Chad tweeted that he would not be on Bachelor In Paradise, show creator Mike Fleiss responded.

Mike has been teasing the announcement of the Paradise cast for a while and took the time to remind people that none of the rumors have been confirmed. So far, Raven Gates is the only person who will definitely be heading to Mexico this summer.

Even though Chad has gained quite a reputation during his time with the Bachelor franchise, we will have to wait and see if he is going to be on Paradise like he originally said or if the producers will decide to bench him for Season 4.

The new Bachelor In Paradise cast will not be confirmed until after Rachel Lindsay’s season of The Bachelorette airs. Since a few of Rachel’s guys are expected to be asked to join the Paradise cast, things won’t really start taking shape for a few more weeks. Rachel has already cut her pack down to 15, so decisions are already being made!
