Jared Haibon returns to Bachelor in Paradise for another chance at finding love on Tuesday night after recovering from heartbreak on Kaitlyn Bristowe’s season of the Bachelorette and finding friendship, not love, with Ashley Iaconetti in Paradise last year.
According to ABC, Jared, who hails from Rhode Island, will be part of the Bachelor in Paradise Season 3 premiere cast that includes a total of 15 former Bachelor and Bachelorette castoffs. Throughout the six-week season, 15 more singles will show up at Mexico’s Playa Escondida Resort as other contestants are sent home without a rose.
Will Jared Haibon finally make a love connection or will he strike out a third time and return home single? Here’s a look at Jared’s second visit to Paradise that begins on Tuesday, August 1, at 8 p.m. on ABC.
[Warning: Bachelor in Paradise Season 3 spoilers ahead]
Jared will be joined by the following contestants on the first episode — Nick Viall, Amanda Stanton, Sarah Herron, Lace Morris, Jubilee Sharpe, Izzy Goodkind, twins Haley and Emily Ferguson, Carly Waddell, Evan Bass, Grant Kemp, Daniel Maguire, Vinny Ventiera, and Chad Johnson. See the complete BIP 3 cast list here.
According to Reality Steve, the girls will ask the guys on dates on the first episode and Jared is one of the lucky ones — he scores a date with Jubilee Sharpe during his first day in Paradise.
Spoilers indicate that Jared doesn’t give his rose to Jubilee and chooses to keep Emily, one of the Ferguson twins, around for another week.
Reality Steve’s spoilers indicate that three girls will arrive on Week 3 and two of them will have a significant impact on Jared Haibon’s stay in Paradise.
Jen Saviano (Bens’s season), Ashley Iaconetti (Chris’ season, Bachelor in Paradise 2), and Caila Quinn (Ben’s season) arrive on the third week.
If spoilers are correct, Ben scores two dates on Week 3, but one will be extremely emotional and the other will be the start of a love story for Jared.
Jared heads out on a date with Ashley I. and after she sheds her usual amount of tears, they come to an agreement that they are better off as friends. He then goes on a date with Caila Quinn and their connection is immediate.
Although fans will see at least one other guy ask Caila on a date on Episode 4, she still gives her rose to Jared. However, their time together on the show ends on Episode 5, but not because Jared doesn’t want to date her anymore.
Spoilers point to the massive amount of drama in Paradise as the reason Caila Quinn decides to leave the show on Week 5. In what won’t be a total shocker, Jared decides to leave as well because he wants to continue to date her and there is no one left in Paradise he’s interested in dating.
Fans won’t find out how their relationship is going until after they leave the show and appear on an episode of After Paradise, but Reality Steve states that Caila doesn’t show much interest in Jared outside the show, so it’s safe to say he didn’t find love in Paradise once again.
Watch the season premiere of Bachelor in Paradise on August 1 at 8 p.m. ET on ABC.
