Caila Quinn didn’t find love with Bachelor Ben Higgins and was passed over for the Bachelorette gig, but that didn’t stop her from taking a chance on finding the man of her dream on the upcoming season of Bachelor in Paradise.
Caila is one of more than 25 former Bachelor and Bachelorette stars cast for the third season of ABC’s summer reality show. Filming wraps up early next week and spoilers are already pointing to hookups, drama, and at least one couple who are “inseparable.” And Caila? A very sexy date with one of this season’s leading men could force some major drama with one of her co-stars.

Who’s in Paradise now, who has already returned home, and will Caila leave the show in love? Here’s the low-down on the upcoming season of Bachelor in Paradise along with the complete cast list that includes several contestants’ names that have yet to be released by ABC.
[Warning: Bachelor in Paradise Season 3 spoilers ahead]
ABC has confirmed the names of 15 contestants, but there are 13 more singles who will arrive throughout the season. Several contestants left within the first few days of filming and one of this season’s bad boys left after taping just one episode. However, there are a number of contestants who are still in Paradise, so fans can expect several love stories to play out during the season finale that will air in September.

Before we get to the spoilers, here are the contestants who went to Paradise hoping to find love or stir up some drama.
Caila Quinn, Amanda Stanton, Leah Block, Sarah Herron, twins Haley and Emily Ferguson, Lace Morris, Jubilee Sharpe, Jen Saviano, Ashley Iaconetti, Izzy Goodkind, Carly Waddell, Evan Bass, Chad Johnson, Evan Bass, Josh Murray, Christian Bishop, Wells Adams, Grant Kemp, Daniel Maguire, Vinny Ventiera, Jared Haibon, and Nick Viall.
According to Reality Steve, there are three more cast members who will appear on the show. Although he hasn’t revealed their names, he says they are “random contestants” from past seasons and fans may not even remember who they are.
Caila Quinn won’t appear on the August 2 premiere but her arrival will spell trouble for Bachelor in Paradise veteran Ashley Iaconetti. Spoilers point to Caila going on a romantic date with Ashley’s love interest Jared Haibon. The date involves getting coached on having great sex — expect Ashley to do a lot of crying when she misses out on some sexy time with Jared.

Will Caila and Jared fall in love? Finale spoilers have not been released yet, but a fan tweeted that she saw Jared at the airport the day after he went on a date with Caila, but it’s still unknown if she stayed to find love with another contestant.

One couple who will probably make it to the finale are Andi Dorfman’s ex Josh Murray and Amanda Stanton from Ben Higgins’ season. According to a previous report from the Inquisitr, Josh and Amanda have been inseparable since Josh arrived on the second day of filming.

Amanda had a date with Nick Viall on night one, but it sounds like Josh won the girl, just like he did on Andi Dorfman’s season of the Bachelorette. Although Nick didn’t get past the first date with Amanda, Reality Steve states that he expects him to make it far this season — he has yet to be eliminated.
However, Chad Johnson, the villain from JoJo’s season, wasn’t quite so lucky. Spoilers reveal that Chris Harrison sent Chad home after one day of filming because he was drunk and saying some not-so-nice things to contestant Lace Morris (Ben Higgins’ season).

In addition to Chad, Reality Steve states that Sarah, Jubilee, Leah, Vinny, and Christian have all left Paradise, and more contestants are expected to leave over the next few days before the finale is filmed.
Watch the two-hour Bachelor in Paradise season premiere on August 2 at 8 p.m. ET on ABC.
