Bachelorette contestant Wells Adams didn’t find love with JoJo Fletcher, but he’s giving it another shot by joining the cast of Bachelor in Paradise. The 31-year-old radio host will join six of his co-stars from JoJo’s season including Evan Bass, Christian Bishop, Grant Kemp, Daniel Maguire, Vinny Ventiera, and the Bachelorette Season 12 villain, Chad Johnson.
Wells didn’t get a one-on-one date with JoJo until he traveled with seven remaining guys to Argentina on Episode 8 (June 27). Although he was hoping the date would move him out of the friendzone and into the love zone, ABC‘s preview video of Monday night’s show hinted that Wells wouldn’t have an easy time becoming a frontrunner after admitting he was one of the only guys left who had yet to kiss JoJo.
Although Wells finally got the kiss he was waiting for, it was clear to JoJo — that there the chemistry was sorely lacking. She sent him home before the rose ceremony but fortunately, for fans who adore Wells, Reality Steve reports that viewers will see him during the upcoming season of Bachelor in Paradise that premieres in August.
How far does Wells Adams make it on Bachelor in Paradise and does he find love in Mexico or head back to Nashville single and ready to mingle? Here’s the latest scoop on Wells and some of the other cast members who will wrap up filming in Paradise this week.
Bachelor in Paradise Season 3 spoilers ahead
According to LinkedIn, Wells Adams is a Nashville-based on-air personality for iHeart Radio. He made fast friends with several of his Bachelorette buddies and fortunately a few of them, including Evan Bass, were there to greet him when he arrived in Paradise after the first episode was taped earlier this month.
Before filming for the third season of Bachelor in Paradise started in early June, WetPaint reported that Wells was spotted out with Carly Waddell, who appeared on the last season of Paradise. When ABC announced that Carly was heading to Paradise for a second season, fans realized that there wasn’t a love interest between them.
However, there’s a chance that they did reunite when he arrived in Paradise and perhaps that sparks started flying, although the show’s creator, Mike Fleiss, tweeted that Carly had “multiple dudes” fighting over her, so it sounds like he had some competition.
Wells returned to Twitter on Monday, June 27 after a six-day hiatus, just a few days before filming for the Bachelor in Paradise season finale wraps up, so it appears that he left the show without a serious love interest.
However, there is at least one couple who fans will see make it to the end, with a possible engagement in the works. According to a previous report from the Inquisitr, Andi Dorfman’s ex Josh Murray and Amanda Stanton (Bachelor Ben Higgins’ season) have been “inseparable” since Murray arrived in Paradise on the second day of filming.
Reality Steve re-tweeted photos of Amanda and Josh late last week, and on Sunday, a savvy fan noticed that Josh’s mother, Lauren Goodhart Murray, was in Mexico where the show is being filmed. Josh and his family are extremely close, so it appears that they are gathering in Mexico for the big finale and to watch their son get engaged on national TV for the second time.
Watch Bachelor in Paradise Season 3 premiere on Tuesday, August 2 at 8 p.m. ET/PT on ABC.
