Bachelor in Paradise 2018 cast: Look who’s heading to Paradise this summer


Filming for Bachelor in Paradise season 5 begins the first week of June. Plenty of familiar faces will join this season’s cast.

Who’s joining the Bachelor in Paradise 2018 cast? Contestants are packing their bags and heading to Mexico this weekend, just days before filming for Season 5 gets underway.

ABC won’t release the official cast list until closer to the August premiere, but we have the latest scoop (and some juicy gossip!) about the guys and girls who will be looking for love — or stirring up drama — in Paradise this summer.

One thing we know for sure — a bunch of guys from Becca’s season, several girls from Arie’s season, and some international contestants (Bachelor Winter Games) will be part of the season 5 Bachelor in Paradise cast.

Chris Harrison has already confirmed that Bekah Martinez (Arie’s season) will be part of the Paradise cast. It’s also a no-brainer that Tia Booth will be there. She’s definitely going on the show to pursue with one of Becca’s guys (spoiler in link).

Fans can also expect to see Joe Amabile from Becca’s season show up in Paradise. After Becca dumped Grocery Store Joe on the Bachelorette premiere, Chris Harrison hinted that we’d see the Chicago grocery store owner on the upcoming season of Bachelor in Paradise.

ABC exec Robert Mills recently revealed that a few international contestants will show up in Paradise this summer, but promises fans will see lots of familiar faces from past seasons of the U.S.-based Bachelor and Bachelorette.

In addition to Bekah Martinez, blogger Reality Steve says we’ll see at least eight other girls from Arie’s season including Tia Booth, Kendall Long, Caroline Lunny, Krystal Nielson, Chelsea Roy, Bibiana Julian, Jenna Cooper, and Olivia Goethals.

Grocery Store Joe won’t be the only guy from Becca’s season to join the Paradise cast. Steve says at least seven other Bachelorette 2018 contestants will head to Mexico this weekend to film the show.

Now that Ashley and Jared are a couple, they won’t be contestants, but could we see the newly-minted couple get married in Paradise? Stay tuned!


The cast list below includes guys who are still on Becca’s season.

Reality Steve says fans can expect to see Connor, Jordan, Clay, Colton, David, Chris, and Leo in Paradise this summer. And don’t forget Grocery Store Joe!

Rumor has it that at least two contestants have already made a connection before filming starts (Kendall and Leo).

Although Reality Steve says Tia and Colton connected after she left Arie’s season, we’re not sure they will work out in Paradise. Apparently, she is the reason Colton doesn’t make it past hometowns — maybe he was hoping to become the next Bachelor instead?

ABC has yet to confirm the Bachelor in Paradise season 5 premiere date. Last year’s season started on August 8, right after the Bachelorette finale, so fans can expect BiP to return around shortly after Becca’s season ends.
