Filming for the third season of Bachelor in Paradise wraps up later this month, but the spoilers are already in full swing with the usual dose of heartbreaks, hookups, and at least one couple who can’t keep their hands off each other.
ABC recently revealed the names of 10 contestants who are part of the Paradise Season 3 cast, but on Monday, the rest of the cast list was leaked out online along with spoilers that point to which contestants are hooking up, who has been eliminated so far, and some intel on a couple who is channeling their inner Jade and Tanner and “spending every minute together.”
[Warning: Spoilers ahead for Bachelor in Paradise Season 3]
Before we get to the spoilers for the 2016 Paradise cast, here’s a look at the Season 3 cast lineup per Reality Steve.
Appearing on the Bachelor in Paradise season premiere:
- Ladies: Amanda Stanton, Leah Block, Sarah Herron, twins Haley and Emily Ferguson, Lace Morris, Jubilee Sharpe, Izzy Goodkind, Carly Waddell
- Men: Chad Johnson, Evan Bass, Grant Kemp, Daniel Maguire, Vinny Ventiera, Jared Haibon, and Nick Viall.
The following cast members are expected to show up during various episodes throughout the season:
- Ladies: Caila Quinn Jen Saviano, Ashley Iaconetti
- Men: Josh Murray, Christian Bishop, and Wells Adams
There are three additional cast members who are rumored to be showing up this season, but Steve says they are “random” people from past seasons that most people won’t remember.
The upcoming season has a great cast and there is no doubt that there will be more drama than ever, especially with Nick Viall returning for a third try at love (or fame), and Chad Johnson continuing on his quest to become the biggest reality TV villain ever.
Here’s what’s been happening so far with 12 days of filming complete and another week or so to go before the finale is taped.
Earlier this month, Reality Steve tweeted a photo of Nick Viall on a date with Leah Block (Ben’s season). There is no word on who Nick is dating now in Paradise, but Leah is back on Twitter so things didn’t work out between them.

According to a previous report by the Inquisitr, villain Chad Johnson’s stay in Paradise was brief — he was only in Mexico for a few days before he was sent home. He’s still stirring up trouble, though — on Sunday he revealed that he is dating his former Bachelorette cast mate Robby Hayes’ ex-girlfriend (and JoJo Fletcher look-alike), Hope Higgenbotham.

Mike Fleiss, the show’s creator, tweeted on Monday that Bachelor in Paradise “is completely insane” and dropped a few hints on who’s falling in love and who is stirring up drama.
Carly Waddell, who left Paradise with a broken heart last season, is apparently being pursued by more than one guy this season. According to WetPaint, she was spotted out with Wells Adams before filming started, so perhaps he’s one of the guys who is trying to make a love connection with Carly.

Jubilee Sharpe (Ben’s season) is already back home and hitting up social media, but Mike Fleiss states that Sarah Herron (Bachelor in Paradise Season 1) and Lace Morris (Ben’s season) have both found love in Paradise this season.
And what about single mom Amanda Stanton? No word on who is pursuing her other than every guy in Paradise, but Fleiss notes that she is “one of the most beautiful women we’ve ever had on BIP!!!”
According to Reality Steve, there is one couple who can’t stay away from each other — it sounds like another Paradise engagement is on the way. Although their names have yet to be revealed, take a look at the cast list above and leave your best guess in the comments section below.
“You know how Tanner and Jade connected day 1 & basically spent every night together? As did Marcus and Lacy? We have another couple that’s similar & spending every single second together.”
Get ready for a drama-filled season of Bachelor in Paradise this summer. The season premiere starts at 8 p.m. ET on Tuesday, August 2, one night after Bachelorette JoJo Fletcher hands out her final rose.
While you wait for the premiere, here’s a throwback video from the last season of Bachelor in Paradise.
