Who’s on the Bachelor in Paradise Season 2 cast list, and when is the premiere on ABC? The show’s producer, Mike Fleiss, confirmed that filming is underway in Puerto Vallarta, Mexico, with “multiple make-outs” on the first night of filming.

Fleiss has already confirmed several cast members who will be looking for love and causing drama at the BIP beach house this summer, with plenty of fan favorites cast for the show. Several of those confirmed have already been leaked, with Reality Steve providing a preliminary cast list (below) of at least 20 people who are already filming or set to arrive in Mexico soon.
Here’s a list of both confirmed and rumored Bachelor in Paradise 2015 cast members, with more to come as spoilers begin to surface online. Of note, the six guys from Kaitlyn’s season who are on the list probably won’t be confirmed by ABC until closer to final rose ceremony.
- Girls: Jade Roper (confirmed), Juelia Kinney (confirmed), Ashley Salter (confirmed), Tenley Molzahn (confirmed), Ashley Iaconetti, Megan Bell, Carly Waddell, Jillian Anderson, Cassandra Ferguson, Chelsie Webster, and Jaclyn Swartz.
- Guys: Joe Bailey, Jonathan Holloway, Tanner Tolbert, Jared Haibon, Joshua Albers, Justin Reich, Brian Osborne, Michael Garofola, Mikey Tenerelli, and Kirk DeWindt.
It’s not surprising to see Ashley Salter, the “Onion Girl” from Chris Soules’ season of the Bachelor, confirmed on the show — fans who watched the Women Tell All in February will remember Chris Harrison begging Ashley to go on BIP.
Now all we need is one of Kaitlyn’s rejected guys, Tony Harris, to end up in Paradise — he’s a great match for Ashley. So far, Tony “the healer” has not been confirmed by ABC, but that doesn’t mean he won’t be added to the cast.
According to Reality Steve, it’s possible that several members of the 2014 Bachelor in Paradise cast will make be on the show, but it’s not clear when they will arrive in Mexico. On the “maybe” list is Brooks Forester, Clare Crawley, Cody Sattler, and, of course, Chris Bukowski. Fan favorite Michelle Money has already confirmed that she will not be joining the cast, tweeting that she may instead do a web-based talk show about the Bachelor.
Are you excited to watch the drama unfold on BIP? Set your DVR for this summer’s guilty pleasure — the two-night season premiere of Bachelor in Paradise airs August 2 and 3, one week after the Bachelorette Kaitlyn Bristowe hands out her final rose.
