Get ready to YOPO, because a few ladies from Chris Soules’ season of the Bachelor may end up on the second season of Bachelor in Paradise. Some of the biggest pot-stirrers, including Britt Nilsson, Kelsey Poe, Ashley Iaconetti, and Ashley Salter are rumored to be heading to Mexico this summer to create even more drama — or will they find love?
Host Chris Harrison reportedly leaked the name of one future cast member during the taping of the Women Tell All that airs March 2. According to TV Guide, Harrison made it clear that one of his top picks for BIP is Ashley Salter. Who can forget Ashley? She’s the one who confused an onion with a pomegranate, and likened the location of the zombie group date to the Mesa Verde.
“Honestly, it’s like she’s in on the joke, but not completely. She did explain the Mesa Verde thing, but then doesn’t completely explain the Mesa Verde thing. I told her, ‘I don’t know if I’m allowed to do this, but I’m extending an invitation to you right now to be on [Bachelor in Paradise].'”

Who else will join castoffs from the Bachelor, and from the next season of the Bachelorette, in Mexico? During his most recent live video chat last week, blogger Reality Steve speculated that Britt Nilsson may end up on Season 2 of Bachelor in Paradise, but he’s not positive if producers will be able to lure her onto the show.
However, with her former cast mates calling Britt out on Women Tell All for being “fake” and “only there for the cameras” during her time on the Bachelor, it’s likely she will sign the BIP contract and show up on the island in full makeup.
Other names in the Bachelor in Paradise rumor mill include the oh-so-dramatic Kelsey Poe and her arch rival, Ashley Iaconetti. Putting the two of these gals together on an island should bring ratings for the show to an all time high.

According to the Vallarta Daily, the second season Bachelor in Paradise will take place in Puerto Vallarta, with filming starting after the next Bachelorette — rumored to be Kaitlyn Bristowe — finishes taping in April. The first season of the spinoff aired in August, 2014, so fans can expect to see some familiar faces show up on the new season of BIP in late summer 2015.
