Kaitlyn Bristowe said goodbye to two suitors on Monday’s Bachelorette, and PEOPLE can now exclusively announce that one of them has been invited to continue his journey to love.

The newest contestant on Bachelor in Paradise is …

Jonathan Holloway

The 33-year-old automotive spokesperson – who came to Bachelor Nation from Sylvan Lake, Michigan – is the first of four BiP who will go straight from The Bachelorette‘s 11th season and head to Mexico to be one of 16 contestants both veteran and new, including Clare Crawley, Dan Cox, Jillian Anderson and Kirk DeWindt, to name a few.

Per his official bio: “Single dad Jonathan did not form a connection with Kaitlyn, which wasn’t too surprising because he wanted the Bachelorette to be Britt. Hopefully for Jonathan, the girls in Paradise will be his type.”
