‘Bachelor In Paradise’ 2015: Six Of ‘Bachelorette’ Kaitlyn’s Guys To Join ‘BIP’ Season 2 Cast

Bachelor in Paradise returns for a second season on August 2, with six of Bachelorette Kaitlyn’s guys rumored to be heading to Puerto Vallarta, Mexico, to YOPO with former cast members from previous seasons of the Bachelor and Bachelorette. ABC has not released the official Bachelor in Paradise cast list yet, but fans can expect to see a finalized list closer to the Bachelorette (July 27).

According to Reality Steve, there’s a good chance that Jonathan Holloway, Joe Bailey, Tanner Tolbert, Joshua Albers, Jared Haibon, and Justin Reich will be part of the BIP 2 cast this summer. (See the tentative cast list below.)

Although all six men are still on the show, spoilers indicate that they will be eliminated over the next few episodes. On Week 3 (June 1), Tony Harris (the healer) leaves during the sumo wrestling group date, much to the surprise of no one. Fans have already been matchmaking for the upcoming season of Bachelor in Paradise — is it possible that viewers will see Tony and Ashley S. (“Onion Girl” from Chris Soules’ season) connect in Mexico?

Joshua is rumored to be eliminated in San Antonio on Week 4 (June 8), followed by Tanner (Week 6, June 22), and Joe Bailey (Week 7, June 29). Filming will start in the next few weeks, so expect to see more spoilers and rumors after the cast arrives in Mexico.

The tentative list released by Reality Steve includes a mix of recent cast members, and some oldies as well. Not on the list? Michelle Money, who tweeted in March that she won’t be returning as a cast member — but that might be her way of keeping a secret while under contract. As far as serial Bachelor Nation star Chris Bukowski, it certainly wouldn’t surprise fans to see him show up on the beach, so watch for his name to pop up closer to the premiere in August.
