ABC’s “Bachelor in Paradise” cast list was released on Wednesday, with many of the reality show’s castoffs returning to to the “Bachelor” spinoff to find love or create drama. For fans who are bored to tears with Andi Dorfman’s season of the “Bachelorette”, it won’t be long before we’ll see some of the pasts seasons’ villains and drama queens back on TV. The show will premiere on August 4, 2014.
Who’s in the cast lineup for ABC’s new summer reality series? It should come as no surprise that Sean Lowe’s reject, AshLee Frazier will be on the deserted island with some equally dramatic guys.
Who is AshLee Frazier’s next conquest on ‘Bachelor in Paradise’?
If you follow Frazier on Instagram or Twitter, you know that she’s been hanging out with and/or dating several ex-“Bachelor” guys since she was given the boot by Lowe. Expect lots of crying and drama from the Texas woman who bombards her followers with countless photos of herself in pricey clothing.
ABC has also confirmed that Ben Scott, who was known as a borderline bad-boy on Desiree Hartsock’s season, will be on the show despite the fact that he stressed that his life revolves around his son.
Of course, it wouldn’t be a good drama without Juan Pablo’s runner-up, Clare Crawley. She’ll have plenty of opportunity to romp in the ocean on “Bachelor in Paradise”– the show is being filmed in an “isolated romantic paradise.” Not sure how romantic it will be once the drama starts, but it Clare should provide plenty of “Bleachable Moments” this summer.
Graham Bunn is back for the zillionth time, apparently because he doesn’t have much else to do other than pose for selfies on Instagram and post throwback pictures of his “Bachelor” buddies.
A few of Andi Dorfman’s rejects who will appear on the show, including Marquel Martin. If you follow the spoilers and know who Andi picks, then it’s reasonable to assume that smokin’ hot Marcus Grodd will appear on the show. Let’s see how long it takes Clare and Ashley to fight over him.
Other than Frazier, Crawley, Scott and Bunn, the rest of the cast list will make you say, “Who was she?” (oh, yes – it’s Elise Mosca!) or “What season was he on?” Some of the people ABC cast for their new summer reality series were rather insignificant on their respective seasons of “The Bachelor” and “The Bachelorette”, so they will need to step up the drama if they want to extend their 15 minutes of reality TV fame.
