The 'Bachelor In Paradise' Cast Is Here And We Can Expect More Taylor-Corinne Drama


Rachel may have just started handing out roses on The Bachelorette, but now it's officially time for all of Bachelor Nation to start preparing for the new season of Bachelor in Paradise.

The cast was just announced and one look at all the past contestants who are going to be in paradise boozing it up, hooking up, and... well that's pretty much the gist of it, makes one thing very clear: This is going to be the most drama-filled season of BIP ever.

And yes, I'm looking at one pair of arch-nemeses in particular. Hi, Corinne and Taylor!


The new cast mostly includes standouts from JoJo Fletcher's season of The Bachelorette and Nick Viall's season of The Bachelor. From JoJo's crop of men, there's Derek Peth, Nick "St. Nick" Benvenutti, Robby Hayes, Alex Woytkiw, and Vinny Ventiera, who's returning for his second time on BIP.

And from the group of women who were vying for Nick's heart not so long ago, we're going to see Raven Gates, Corinne Olympios, Taylor Nolan, Alexis Waters, Lacey Marks, Kristina Schulman, Danielle Maltby, and Jasmine Goode all heading down to Mexico.

And then there are a handful of contestants from neighboring seasons. DeMario Jackson, who just got kicked of Rachel's current season of The Bachelorette after she found out he already had a girlfriend last week, is now heading down south to be on Paradise. Talk about a quick turnaround!

The final two contestants rounding out the cast include Amanda Stanton from Ben's season, who joins Vinny as the only other contestant to have been on a previous season of Bachelor in Paradise, and the pretty random choice of Ben Zorn, who made it adequately far in Kaitlyn's season of The Bachelorette back in 2015.

Obviously, the two names that stand out to every drama-hungry Bachelor in Paradise fan are obvious: Corinne and Taylor launched into an epic rivalry during the most recent season of The Bachelor, so it's pretty safe to assume that they probably won't be getting along too well on BIP.

Get ready for some fireworks.
