Season 2 of Bachelor in Paradise is right around the corner, and fans are anxious to know who will be participating. Filming will start in a few weeks or so, and the new season will premiere in August. What Bachelor in Paradise spoilers regarding the cast are available so far?
According to Reality Steve's spoilers, this Season 2 BIP cast is going to be extremely heavy on ladies from Chris Soules' season. While that's not a big shock, it does seem as if the cast so far is bringing in more ladies from that show than most would have guessed. There are a few throwbacks to earlier seasons as well, and Reality Steve says that the cast isn't entirely set in stone quite yet.
Of course, there will be guys from the current Bachelorette season as well, which may well reinforce some of the spoilers out about that season. As viewers saw last year, the format of the show meant that people started in on their journey to find love at different times, and that may well play out to be the case this season. That means that there's more information to come as the new season is filmed.
If Reality Steve's Bachelor in Paradise spoilers are correct, Soules cast-offs Carly Waddell, Jade Roper, Ashley Salter, Samantha Steffen, and Megan Bell are on the cast list. In addition, Jillian Anderson, Ashley Iaconetti, and Mackenzie Dionigi from Chris' cast may well all be appearing this summer too.
There are several ladies said to be in the mix who aren't from Chris' season, namely Chelsie Webster and Cassandra Ferguson from Juan Pablo Galavis' season. Long-time fan favorite Tenley Molzahn from Jake Pavelka's season and Season 1 of Bachelor Pad is apparently on the list too. Fans would love to see her find love again now that her on-again-off-again romance with Kiptyn Locke from Bachelor Pad is over for good.
What about the guys? Naturally, there will be a handful coming from the Bachelorette 2015 season. Fans are just starting to figure out these guys, but people may want to keep an eye on Tony Harris, Joshua Albers, Tanner Tolbert, and Southern boy Joe Bailey as the season plays out.
Others from prior seasons are said to include Brian Osbourne from Andi Dorfman's season, as well as both Mikey Tenerelli and Michael Garofola from Desiree Hartsock Siegfried's season. There's another fan favorite throwback on the male side with Kirk DeWindt said to be in the mix. Kirk was on Ali Fedotowsky's season of The Bachelorette and he also was on Bachelor Pad Season 2.
Filming for Bachelor in Paradise Season 2 will reportedly take place in Puerto Vallarta, Mexico this summer. Filming takes place over about three weeks in June and the show premieres on ABC on August 2. Show creator Mike Fleiss has teased that the cast will be incredible, and fans will be anxious for BIP spoilers regarding the rest of the cast.
Will there be any lasting love matches made like what fans saw last summer with Marcus Grodd and Lacy Faddoul? Viewers certainly hope so and they can't wait for more scoop. Stay tuned for more Bachelor in Paradise spoilers as Season 2 is filmed and start counting down now for the drama and romance to begin in August.
