You've waited patiently (or not so patiently), and it's finally here. That's right, Bachelor in Paradise is back and better than ever. (Trust!) Come August 16, season seven premieres with a totally stacked cast. ABC just dropped an updated official cast list July 13, and it confirmed that so many of your faves (and more!) are headed down to Mexico to look for love. Actually, based on all the juicy Bachelor in Paradise spoilers, they finished filming and are back in the states.

So far, there are 19 contestants from seven (!!) different Bachelor and Bachelorette seasons, so don't worry if you don't recognize them all. There are some total throwbacks and a few serious transformations—prepare to do a few double takes.

Read on for your first look at the Bachelor in Paradise cast members for season seven:

Connor Brennan

Connor B. from Katie's Bachelorette season is making the jump from Nashville, Tennessee, to Mexico this season. The one and only cat man will return to hopefully hit it off with another feline-friendly lady. Everyone's favorite math teacher with a passion for songwriting will no doubt capture some lucky contestant's heart this season, with or without his ukulele.

Aaron Clancy

Aaron made it halfway through Katie's Bachelorette season, but their connection wasn't strong enough to take him to the end. The 26-year-old insurance agent from San Diego, California, made plenty of waves with his brutally honest takes about the other contestants. He'll also make another appearance on this season of BiP (maybe he'll get along with the other guys better this time around?).

James Bonsall

James, 30, is a software salesman from La Jolla, California. Tbd on whether his BiP entrance will include another box, but he'll be flying down to Mexico, too. He captured viewers' hearts and Katie really seemed to like him, so he should be a total catch this season.

Kelsey Weier

Kelsey made a splash on Peter's Bachelor season amid #champagnegate. Hannah Ann "stole" her Dom Perignon, then Kelsey inhaled most of another bottle up her nose. But this 30-year-old professional clothier from Des Moines, Iowa, is ready for a fresh start. Maybe she'll redeem herself over a Mai Tai?

Victoria Paul

Another former pageant queen, Victoria, self eliminated during Peter's season after she couldn't see a future with him anymore. She's 28 years old and works as a nurse in Alexandria, Louisiana. Here's hoping she finds a beach bro she can play the long game with this season!

Brendan Morais

A 31-year-old commercial roofer from Milford, Massachusetts, Brendan made it all the way to Tayshia's final three before he was sent home. This sweet fan favorite is already tangled up in some BiP drama, but he should have no problem finding someone to couple up with by the poolside. How many turtlenecks is too many to bring to the beach?

Jessenia Cruz

Jessenia, 28, works as a social media marketer in San Antonio, Texas. She made it almost to the end of Matt's season, but some iffy rumors about her past snuck up on her and ruined her chances.
