He won over not one, but two former Bachelorettes, and now Nick Viall will be shaking things up in Paradise, PEOPLE confirms exclusively.

The 35-year-old software salesman, who was both Andi Dorfman and Kaitlyn Bristowe‘s runner-up (and gained a villainous reputation for his I’m-not-here-to-make-friends ‘tude on Bristowe’s season), told PEOPLE last year that there was a “zero percent” chance he’d return to The Bachelorette, but in Paradise, it could be third time’s a charm.

Viall will be joining previously announced cast including Chad Johnson, Jubilee Sharpe and Jared Haibon.

In addition, three suitors from JoJo Fletcher‘s current Bachelorette season will be coming to play: Grant Kemp, Evan Bass and Vinny Ventiera, who were all voted out Monday night.

Uh oh. Chad and Evan reunited in Mexico? Romantic sparks might not be the only things flying in Paradise.
