- Good Morning America revealed the first seven Bachelor In Paradise cast members earlier this week.
- The rest of the initial cast was revealed last night during ABC's new show, Grand Hotel.
- The cast list is full of new fan favorites from Hannah's and Colton's Bachelorette and Bachelor seasons, as well as some familiar faces.
Rise and shine, Bachelor Nation! You’re about to have the Best. Day. Ever. Okay, before you get too excited, no, Bachelorette Hannah Brown hasn't sent home resident cyborg Luke P. (and it looks like she won't for awhile-yikes?). After Good Morning America **officially** released the first names in the Bachelor In Paradise cast for season six, even more fan favorites were added to the mix last night during ABC's new show Grand Hotel-and OMG, you guys, it is so so good.
The cast is chock full of your newest faves from Hannah and Colton Underwood's seasons and some familiar faces you've been missing more than a reason to chug wine on a Monday.
Here are all the confirmed Bachelor and Bachelorette alums who will take over Paradise:
John Paul Jones
The three-named wonder didn't find love with Hannah, but with that hair, he probably won't have any trouble finding a cuddle buddy for those cold, cold nights in tropical paradise.
Ready or not (and I'm so not), here he comes. The semi-villian from Hannah's season is back for round two. Tbd if he'll try to make good with the guys he burned on the Bachelorette, but one thing's for sure: he'll ABC (always be Cam).
This heartthrob-next-door made his debut on Becca Kufrin's season of the Bachelorette. He had a quick fling with fellow Bachelor alum Kristina Schulman, but is currently single and ready to mingle.
After nine years in the NFL and two years in Bachelor Nation, Clay's heading to Paradise. The show helped him find love with fellow BN resident Angela Amezcua, but they broke up around March 2019, per Us Weekly. Still, considering his positive track record, he might just get lucky (in love) this season, too.

After almost winning Colton's heart (she made the top three of his season), Tayshia has just been dropping hints that she's single. She 100-percent hinted that she was going to be on Paradise season six way back in March. "I’m looking forward to what other opportunities come around, whether with Paradise or anything else. I’ll never say never," she told Vulture at the time. Whelp, in the words of everyone on your Insta feed: "She said yes!"
Fans most recently saw Demi in a small cameo on Hannah's Bachelorette season in which she sniffed out a less-than-gentlemanly suitor. The "villian" from Colton's season (who everyone grew to love) will not doubt make a splash in Paradise. Maybe she and Cam will be a match made in h*ll, I mean, heaven?
This ain't Bibiana's first rodeo. She's been on Arie's season of The Bachelor, The Bachelor Winter Games (RIP), and Bachelor in Paradise, so she knows what she's doing. According to her insta, Bibiana's also a total bookworm, so even if she doesn't find love in Paradise, at least she'll have some QT with a few good beach reads?
Thank you, Paradise gods producers for casting this hunk from Hannah's season. Already setting my DVR to capture all those shirtless scenes.
Fans didn't really get to know Dylan on this past season of the Bachelorette (real talk: I had no idea who he was until peeping his Insta, and I've watched every episode-including the one he's still on!), but hopefully that'll change in Paradise.
Another alum from Becca's season, Wills became known for his signature style. On the show, he practically lived in patterned suits, so here's hoping he'll bring that same fashion sense to Paradise. Plaid swim trunks? Sign me up.
Paradise hasn't been, well, paradise to Annaliese in the past, bringing her nothing but excruciately public heartbreak when her then-BF Kamil Nicalek dumped her on the season five finale. Ouch. But, just like Cher, she believes in life after love. Hopefully, she'll find it-and keep it-this time around.
Like the current Bachelorette, this Hannah is a former pageant girl who competed for Miss Alabama and Colton Underwood's heart. Despite losing both, she's ready to compete for a new beau on Paradise. And she's already picked out some potential options: "Connor, Dylan and then Mike," she told ET of the contestants on other Hannah's Bachelorette season. "... [I'm] open to anybody that I connect with... including Blake [Horstmann]." (The ship fans have been waiting for!)
Another former pageant queen (she won Miss North Carolina in 2017 and was first runner-up for Miss USA), Caelynn made it all the way to hometowns on Colton's season...but fans all know how that ended. Here's hoping she has to deal with less fence-jumping-and beauty queen feuding-in Paradise.
Fresh off a feud with fellow Bachelor contestant Onyeka Ehie (who just so happens to be part of the Paradise cast-what a coincidence!), digital-journalist-turned-influencer is heading to the beach in search of love. At the very least, she's getting out of Miami for a bit.
Having "never been in love before," Oneyka hoped Colton would be the one to change that for her. But, you guessed it, he wasn't. Is her first love hidden somewhere in Paradise? Only time will tell...
Coming out of "retirement," this two-time Bachelor in Paradise vet (who was also on the now-defunct Bachelor Pad) is baaaaack. Since Chris is from a previous era of Bachelor Nation, he's a total wild card this season. Hopefully, he'll play nice with all the other kids in the sandbox.
After a stint on JoJo's Bachelorette season and Paradise season four, Derek is back for more. Back in 2017, he proposed to fellow Paradise costar Taylor Nolan, but turns out that wasn't meant to be. Well, you know what they say, "third time's the charm." (And, if it's not, you know he'll probs be back for a fourth.)
The dancer/model/fitness instructor wasn't a match for Colton because their relationship wasn't progressing fast enough. Fingers crossed Sydney can find someone who's able to keep up with her-barefoot, no less-in Paradise.
After getting eliminated on the first night of Colton's season, Jane must've pulled off an ah-mazing Paradise audition to nab a spot in the cast. My guess is she impressed the producers with the way she inserted herself into a conversation on Women Tell All that had absolutely nothing to do with her (because, uh, how could it when she was barely on the show?). That's the kind of no-one-asked-for-this move that shows you were made for reality TV.
Best known for dropping the bomb on Colton that some of his lady friends-namely, Cassie and Caelynn-weren't ready for marriage, Katie walked away from the explosion and didn't look back. Obviously, things worked out for Cassie (I guess), but tbd if she'll be able to bury the hatchet with Caelynn. At least, they got a lot of sand to bury it (or each other) in...
Bachelor in Paradise premieres on August 5th at 8 p.m. ET.
