The third season of Bachelor In Paradise is less than two weeks away now, and the spoilers are certainly out there for all to see. Some people will choose not to pay attention to them, but some things are too hard to pass up. The first cast photo has been revealed, and it shows a lot of people, but nowhere near the entire cast. As for the spoilers? Well, the talk of multiple engagements and which couples are still together has everyone talking and wondering.
A couple of days ago, PEOPLE released the first official look at the cast for the 2016 season of Bachelor In Paradise, but that isn’t all. Who you’re seeing in the photo below are those members of the cast who will appear right when things get started on the season premiere.
On the top row from left is Izzy Goodkind, Jared Haibon, Evan Bass, Grant Kemp, Daniel Maguire, and Vinny Venteria.
The bottom row from the left is Chad Johnson, Haley or Emily Ferguson, Jubilee Sharpe, Amanda Stanton, Lace Morris, Sarah Herron, Carly Waddell, Emily or Haley Ferguson, and Nick Viall.
As you can tell, it’s a rather diverse cast with a lot of controversy and chaos built right in, with villains such as Chad and Lace down in Mexico. Everyone is wondering what kind of drama will come about in the season premiere, but fans are even more curious about what will happen after the show is officially over.
At the end of June, creator Mike Fleiss tweeted out a major announcement, and it was honestly quite huge.

Some think that may mean two, but in reality, there are going to be three engagements taking place at the end of Bachelor In Paradise. Yes, there is a lot of love found in Mexico this time around, but is it all going to last?
The better question may actually be — Are the engagements real?
First of all, the engaged couples are as follows.
- Evan Bass and Carly Waddell
- Grant Kemp and Lace Morris
- Josh Murray and Amanda Stanton
Hollywood Take does not have a lot of faith in all three couples staying together for a long time, or even all of them making it to the aisle and walking down it. Reportedly, these three couples will get engaged in the finale, but there is already some speculation that they are all simply for publicity for the show and nothing more.
If that truly is the case, then those engagements are doing a great job to promote Bachelor In Paradise, because it has really built up the anticipation. Fans are already overly excited for this season and those that don’t read spoilers do know something big is up, and that has them wanting to tune in even more.

All the favorites you love and love to hate are hoping to find love, but is any of it real?
As of now, all three of the couples are said to be still “together,” but it’s not known how legit the love truly is between them. Only time will tell and it’s likely that, if they are fake, ABC will have them stay “happily attached” until after the season is over.
Bachelor In Paradise is one of those shows that is a spinoff, but very different from the shows which it originated from. Having multiple engagements is incredibly intriguing and has brought about a lot of discussion, but are they for real? Have those members of the cast actually found true love or are they doing it all for the show? Only time will tell, but for now, it’s a lot of fun to speculate and wonder.
