Bachelor in Paradise returns this summer and some of the franchise’s most controversial contestants will be looking for love and stirring up drama.

Of course, we’re super excited that Rachel Lindsay’s season of The Bachelorette is just a few weeks away. But seriously — Bachelor in Paradise!? Is there a better way for Bachelor fans to spend their Monday and Tuesday nights this summer?

The premiere date for Bachelor in Paradise has been set for Tuesday, August 8. That’s just one day after The Bachelorette finale airs on ABC. According to Reality Steve, the summer reality series will air on both Monday and Tuesday nights starting on the second week.

ABC has yet to confirm whether or not the live After Paradise talk show will air after Tuesday night’s one-hour show. Last season the show was hosted by Sean Lowe (Bachelor Season 17) and former The View host Michelle Collins. Hopefully, Chris Harrison will return to his hosting duties on the show. Sean was a wee bit boring, don’t you think?

Who’s headed to Bachelor in Paradise this summer?

ABC won’t start releasing the names of the Season 4 cast until most of Bachelorette Rachel Lindsay’s guys are eliminated. So far, the only person the network has semi-confirmed is Raven Gates from Nick’s season.

Corinne Olympios has been dropping major hints that she’s also headed to Paradise. Not a shocker. ABC knows a ratings booster when they see one.

Earlier this month, Bachelor creator Mike Fleiss tweeted about the Chad Johnson cast rumors. Fleiss states that nothing is official about Chad.

Is anyone buying that? Didn’t think so.

Chad, who recently relocated to Los Angeles, lasted only one episode on Season 3. Despite his crazy antics and potty mouth, he’s still well-loved by many viewers. And the Chad and Corinne thing would be epic. Don’t count the Chad Bear out just yet.

Other names in the Paradise cast rumor mill

It won’t be a total shocker to see any of these guys in Paradise this season: Chase McNary, Robby Hayes, Luke Pell, Wells Adams, Daniel Maguire, and Vinny Ventiera.

James Taylor, who recently came clean about sleeping with various fans, revealed in Reality Steve‘s podcast that he’s open to joining the BIP cast. In other words, fans will see him on the show.

In addition to Corinne and Raven, there’s a long list of ladies that may show up in Paradise this summer. Expect a big reunion when it comes to Nick’s ladies. Kristina Schulman, Sarah Vandal, Whitney Fransway, Alexis Waters, Danielle Lombard, and Taylor Nolan are on the rumor list.

Of course, we’d love to see Ashley Iaconetti and Jared Haibon back for another season. Paradise just wouldn’t be the same without jealousy and non-stop crying.

Bachelor in Paradise Season 4 premieres Tuesday, August 8 at 8 p.m. ET on ABC. Tune in or have an incredibly boring summer.
