JJ Lane Heads To ‘Bachelor In Paradise,’ Will Clint Arlis Make A Surprise Appearance? [Spoilers]

The Bachelor in Paradise cast list was released last week, and seven of Kaitlyn Bristowe’s rejected suitors will be showing up on at the Grand Mayan Resort in Nuevo Vallarta to stir up drama or find love. Contestant JJ Lane is one of the guys who gets ditched bythe Bachelorette, but there’s a possibility that he will find romance in Mexico on ABC’s summer reality show.

Fans are already wondering if JJ Lane’s time in Paradise will include a rekindled bromance with his Bachelorette co-star, Clint Arlis. While Clint’s name doesn’t appear on the cast list, viewers may be in for a surprise this season. According to Reality Steve, a total of 27 guys and girls (list below) have been cast for the second season of BIP, but perhaps producers have a few surprises in store for fans.

There are rumors that semi-villain, and chronic Bachelor Nation cast member, Chris Bukowski may show up at some point during filming, so don’t count Clint Arlis out yet. After all, “Villains gotta vill.”

As far as JJ Lane goes, spoilers indicate that Kaitlyn will send him home on Week 6. The 30-year-old single dad from Colorado started off well, getting the group date rose on Week 2. His faux relationship with Clint seemed to lose JJ a few points as the weeks progressed, but he managed to hang in there for a few more weeks.

Last week, Lane did a lame rap on the group date, and on Week 5, he will make it through yet another singing group date in San Antonio. Once in Dublin, Ireland (Week 6), things don’t go quite as well for JJ, and Kaitlyn sends him home after the two-on-one date.

Lane only had a few weeks to return to his home and job as CEO of 360 Service Companies — filming for Bachelor in Paradise started last week, with the first 16 cast members arriving in Mexico for what promises to be a drama-filled season.
