Who’s missing from ABC’s Bachelor in Paradise cast list? Here’s the scoop!


ABC released the 2018 Bachelor in Paradise cast photos today, but the network didn’t reveal the entire cast list. Here’s a look at the season 5 cast!

On Tuesday, ABC revealed the names of 17 Bachelor in Paradise season 5 contestants. If you don’t see some of your favorite guys from Becca’s season, or girls from Arie’s season, don’t fret.

The entire cast list has not been released, but we have the scoop about additional guys and girls who will show up in Mexico looking for love this summer!

Some of Bachelorette Becca’s guys are still on the show, so ABC won’t add them to the official cast list ’til they are eliminated during upcoming rose ceremonies.

Here’s a look at the contestants who have been confirmed, as well as guys/girls who are expected to show up in Paradise this season.

Who else is heading to Paradise this summer?!

Jared and Ashley’s engagement will be part of the upcoming season. There’s word that Ben Higgins spent time in Paradise, too, but he was not there to date anyone.

More guys from Becca’s season will soon be added to this list — spoilers ahead.

Colton was already spotted filming Paradise — he was on a date with Tia. Shocking! (Colton makes it to hometowns)

What about Bekah?

Chris Harrison confirmed she was going to Paradise during the Bachelor Women Tell All, but now we’re not sure.

Bekah is not part of the original cast, but she was MIA for about a week on social media when the show started filming, so maybe she shows up after the premiere.

Cast rumors

Another guy from Becca’s season that is rumored to be part of the cast is Leo Dottavio.

Rumor has it that Kendall has already spent time with him before filming the show, so expect them to couple up or, at least, go on a date in Paradise.

Connor is another guy who has a good shot at showing up in Paradise.

He doesn’t get much screen time on Becca’s, but he sure loves talking about The Bachelorette on Instagram. (Eye roll)

And my personal favorite, Wills Reid should be there. If not, I’m rooting for him to become the next Bachelor.

According to Reality Steve, Jacqueline (Arie’s season) may show up as well, but her stay will be brief.

Expect ABC to confirm more contestants in the weeks leading up to the Paradise premiere, including some guys/girls from older seasons of The Bachelor/The Bachelorette.
