The second season of Bachelor in Paradise returns Sunday night, with 29 singles ready to mingle at the Playa Escondida Resort in Sayulita, Mexico. The first 16 contestants will get the drama started on the two-night premiere (August 2), but fans will see an additional 13 cast members arrive throughout the season.
ABC has only released the names of the contestants who will appear on Sunday night's show, but have yet to reveal the identity of the mystery woman (spoiler) and the guys and girls who will arrive on future episodes. (Full cast list below)
According to Reality Steve, the full cast list was left out in plain sight at a hotel during filming, so fans don't have to wait to find out who else is coming to find love or heartbreak. Some of the names will be familiar, others weren't so memorable on their seasons of the Bachelor or Bachelorette.
Here's the latest scoop on the second season of Bachelor in Paradise season 2, with a few spoilers thrown in. Find a full cast list at the end of this post, in order of their appearance on the show. Use it as a cheat sheet to keep track of who's coming and who's going — and who's hooking up — throughout the season.
Two guys who will arrive in Paradise mid-season may or may not surprise fans — Chris Bukowski and Nick Peterson. While Chris seems to be a staple on Bachelor franchise shows, the last time viewers saw Nick was on Bachelor Pad 3.
If you've forgotten about that "OMG" moment when he decided to keep the $250,000 prize instead of sharing it with his partner, Rachel Truehart, watch the video below for a little refresher.
How will Nick Peterson fare this season, and will Chris Bukowski finally find a girl to date for more than a few days? Tune in on Sunday and Monday nights starting August 2 to see how things turn out for not only Nick and Chris, but the rest of the BIP 2 cast.
