When does Bachelor in Paradise premiere?
Monday Aug. 4th, 2014
I have to admit I’m a bit disappointed in this cast. I was expecting some bigger names like Jef Holm and Courtney Robertson. Now watching those two hang out for 3 weeks in Mexico could be amazing. I actually don’t even know who a lot of these people are!!
I am secretly hoping ABC has a big trick up their sleeve and will be bringing in the heavy hitters as the season progresses.
Here is the official list of contestants and latest info released by ABC.
Apparently the show will begin with the following cast:
AshLee Frazier, Ben Scott, Clare Crawley, Daniella McBride, Elise Mosca, Graham Bunn, Lacy Faddoul, Michelle Kujawa, Robert Graham, Sarah Herron, Martin and Money will join Petit and Grodd as part of the initial arrivals.
