The Bachelor in Paradise Season 2 cast list keeps growing, with the return of Chris Bukowski to ABC's summer reality show. This will be the fifth time Bukowski has appeared on a Bachelor franchise show, and his return to BIP is rumored to be a short one.
According to blogger Reality Steve, Chris arrives on Week 5, and his stay in Mexico was brief. It sounds like Bukowski's time on the show was similar to last year's one-and-done contestant Kalon McMahon.
"This guy has absolutely zero shame. I'm almost at the point of doing a 180 on Chris and just applauding him for his self-absorbedness if that's even a word. With that said, I can now report that Chris is this season's Kalon."On Season 1, Kalon McMahon came on BIP and was quickly rejected by the ladies on the show. Before he was sent home, producers filmed Kalon having a one-on-one date with the most important person in his life — himself.
It looks like this will be the case for Chris Bukowski, who will once again make a quick appearance to get his face on TV. Fans may recall Chris trying to get on the cast of Andi Dorfman's season of the Bachelorette — he wasn't quite as lucky as Nick Viall was with Kaitlyn Bristowe.
According to Chris' Twitter account, he was back in the U.S. this weekend, and attended his sister's wedding. Reality Steve suspects that Bukowski's time spent filming Bachelor in Paradise was "less than 24 hours," which will lead fans to believe that no one wanted anything to do with the five-timer.
"Wow. I mean, WOW. Congrats Chris. You are the gold standard by which every fame whoring douchelicker can now aspire to be."On the first season of Bachelor in Paradise, Chris lasted three episodes, but he wasn't eliminated by other cast members. Chris hurt his knee during filming, and the injury was so bad that he decided to leave Tulum, but he didn't leave alone. After giving his rose to cast member Michelle Money (so she could stay with Cody Sattler), he left the show with Elisa Mosca and proceeded to have a short-lived fling with her back in the U.S.
Chris told Cupid's Pulse that he broke off the relationship because they were at two very different points in their lives.
"I wasn't confident that Elise was the right girl for me and didn't want to lead her on to believe anything different."Tune in to watch Chris Bukowski make a pit stop on Bachelor in Paradise this season. The two-night season premiere starts on August 2 at 8 p.m. ET.
