Sixteen Bachelor and Bachelorette vets are heading to Mexico to find lasting relationships on the summer series
Last season had no shortage of drama, but things are set to be even more explosive with more singles in the mix this time around. Here’s the new set of hopefuls looking for their reality-television happy endings:
Chris Harrison begged the quirky 25-year-old to join the cast during the Women Tell All episode of Chris Soules‘ season, and his wish has been granted. If it doesn’t work out with any of the guys, Salter can always entertain herself with pomegranates/onions.
Soules was left with doubts about the cosmetics developer, 28, after she revealed her Playboy model past – and made him look at her nude photos on a date!
The nutritionist, 30, is no stranger to finding love on the ABC franchise shows. She dated fellow Bachelor Pad contestant Kiptyn Locke after falling just shy of receiving Jake Pavelka‘s final rose.
The cruise-ship singer, 29, stirred up drama with fellow contestant Britt Nilsson on Soules’ season.
Will Anderson’s black censor bar be back? The 25-year-old was sent home by Soules after making one too many raunchy comments during their date.
The single mom, 30, shared her heartbreaking story of her husband’s suicide while vying for Soules’ heart.
Desiree Hartsock sent the business owner, 32, home during week three after he embarrassingly split his pants open on a rodeo-themed date.
PLUS: Four more men from Kaitlyn Bristowe‘s drama-filled season of The Bachelorette will be joining the cast, along with a surprise female contestant.
