He delighted Bachelorette Andi Dorfman on night one by presenting her with a plate of cookies, and now, newly-ousted Marquel Martin will see if his sweet skills will bring him love on Bachelor in Paradise.

The charming and confident sponsorship salesman, 27, left his Bachelorette journey relatively unscathed, save for a tiff on Monday night’s episode with Andrew Poole over Poole’s alleged offensive remark about Martin during the first rose ceremony.

He was emotional after Dorfman eliminated him, but Martin, who has said he’s looking for a woman who “wants to be pursued without coming off as stuck up,” still has another chance for that love connection!

With a certain Bachelor season 15 favorite perhaps? Also joining the Bachelor in Paradise cast is former model and actress Michelle Money, who competed for Brad Womack’s heart back in 2011, quickly garnering fan buzz for her seductive ways and jealous comments.

She didn’t get Womack’s final rose, but Money fanned the romance flames on Bachelor Pad 2 later that year, where her teammate Graham Bunn soon became a love interest. Here’s her opportunity for a happy reunion – Bunn is a previously announced cast member on the show!

Bachelor in Paradise premieres Aug. 4 on ABC.
