Some of the people who lived through the filming of Bachelor in Paradise season 2 admit that the trailer that was shown for the new season on Monday night is a bit cringeworthy — make that very cringeworthy. One of the women who was shown a lot on the promo, Ashley Iaconetti, even said that she was embarrassed by it.
The promo for season 2, which premieres on Sunday, August 2, was shown on Kaitlyn Bristowe’s The Bachelorette: Men Tell All special. Many of the spin-off’s cast members were in the audience of the Men Tell All special. Ashley, who was in the audience, tweeted that watching the promo in front of everyone was “the most embarrassing moment of [her] life.”
Honestly, watching that's promo in front of all the guys and a live audience of 200 was the most embarrassing moment of my life.— Ashley Iaconetti (@ashleyiaco) July 21, 2015
Ashley, who was shown throughout the promo hysterically crying and proclaiming that Jared Haibon is so hot that he could be the man to take her virginity, explained that watching the promo with the audience made her feel even more embarrassed.

Other Bachelor in Paradise season 2 cast members who were in the audience of the Men Tell All special were Clare Crawley, Ashley Salter, Jade Roeper, Carly Waddell, Tenley Molzahn, and Juelia Kinney. Clare, who was also on the spin-off’s first season, posted a group shot of the women.
Jade admitted that the promo was a bit intense.
Carly, who competed with Ashley I. and Jade for Chris Soules on The Bachelor, made fun of herself for looking as if she was up to no good.
One man who seemed to leave the spin-off’s filming popular with the ladies is JJ Lane. During Kaitlyn Bristowe’s season of The Bachelorette, JJ’s friendship with fellow contestant Clint Arlis was so strong that they were known as the “Brokeback Bachelors.” Yet JJ turned his back on Clint when Clint needed him the most. While JJ defended himself on the Men Tell All special, Ashley I. and Jade tweeted their support for JJ.
Ashley told one of JJ’s critics to shut up.
Jade told JJ that she’s excited to watch him on the show.
Besides Ashley Iaconetti, Clare Crawley, Jade Roper, Carly Waddell, Ashley Salter, Tenley Molzahn, Juelia Kinney, Jared Haibon, and JJ Lane, Bachelor in Paradise season 2 also features Jillian Anderson, Dan Cox, Kirk Dewindt, Mikey Tenerelli, Jonathan Holloway, and Tanner Tolbert. A couple from season 1 may also show up. As previously reported by the Inquisitr, Lacy Faddoul and Marcus Grodd, who got engaged on season 1, reportedly secretly got married and filmed the ceremony to be shown on the second season.
