The most chaotic, entertaining, and out-of-control show that everyone loves is back:
Master of the World! Starting on September 27, all of your favorite Bachelor and Bachelorette contestants will go to Mexico to try to find love again.
This week is the start of Season 8. Usually, Paradise starts in the middle of August, but this season will be a little different. People say that those who wait will get good things. This season takes a page from Love Island’s book and breaks up possible couples in the middle of the season. Reality Steve said, “All the couples are split up, and one half of each goes to a different villa to meet new singles.”
Changes always cause a lot of noise, and this one is no different. “This place is crazy. It’s crazy as hell, “On the Here For the Right Reasons podcast, host Jesse Palmer said. “There is just so much chaos and drama, and yes, things are happening in Paradise that have never been seen before.”
ABC also released a teaser for the new season, which says that several fan favorites will be looking for love (hint: Michael Allio, or “Papa Mike,” is back). Also, there are a lot of Clayton Echard’s women there. So, without further ado, let me tell you about the Bachelor in Paradise cast of 2022.
Long time no see, Logan. If you’ve been living under a rock, you might not know that Logan dated Rachel on the recent co-Bachelorette season until he realized he liked Gabby more. This made him quickly switch things up. Then COVID got him, and he was sent home. Womp.
Teddi, a 25-year-old surgical unit nurse, may be someone you remember from Clayton Echard’s season of The Bachelor. Even though she got his first impression rose, Distractify says Teddi was sent home at the seventh rose ceremony. Try harder this time!
Michael is a 38-year-old business owner from Ohio who everyone now calls “Papa Mike.” And I, for one, am glad to see Michael’s warm smile back on Bachelor in Paradise. According to Entertainment Weekly, this caring dad left Katie Thurston’s season early because his young son needed him. You have to keep the good ones.
Take a look! Shanae is from Ohio and is 30 years old. Her Bachelor Nation Wiki page says that she is a recruiter. Shanae sounds like she likes drama based on the teaser, which makes sense since she was on Clayton’s season of The Bachelor. She loves Christmas so much, it seems, that she keeps a tree up all year long.
Andrew, who is 27, is back on the show after Katie Thurston’s season as The Bachelorette. When Andrew got cut right before the hometown dates, it was a roller coaster of emotions, so I hope this pro football player finds his special someone in Paradise.
Serene, who is 27 years old and lives in Oklahoma City, Oklahoma, is a first-grade teacher. She is another of Clayton’s many ex-girlfriends who will be a part of the BiP cast this season. See you soon, Serene!
Screen Rant says that Michelle Young and her parents seemed to be madly in love with 28-year-old Brandon, but he ended the season as the runner-up and lost the girl to Nayte Olukoya.
Brandon is a traveling nurse recruiter, and he is here to make one lucky lady very happy. And we hope that no more Neil Lane engagement rings end up in the ocean.
Brittany is a model from Chicago, IL, and she is best known for being one of the five women who made their big entrance on the fourth episode of Matt James’ season. Later, a cruel rumor turned Britt into a target, and she wasn’t around for long after that.
One more from Gabby and Rachel’s season as co-bachelorettes! His IG bio says that Jacob, who is 28 years old, works in real estate and mortgage lending in Scottsdale, Arizona. I’m sure you remember his interesting plan to win Rachel’s heart, but just in case, he basically told Gabby that he was only there for Rachel and would self-eliminate if she was the only one left. Ouch.
Genevieve, you’re back! According to Bachelor Nation Wiki and Cosmopolitan, this contestant is a bartender who lives in LA and is 27 years old. Genevieve had a lot of screen time in the season’s teaser, which could be a sign of things to come.
Entertainment Weekly says that she is best known for “hating Shanae,” which is the name of another contestant. So, I wouldn’t be surprised if drama happens.
This contestant may look familiar to you from Katie Thurston’s season or from his confessional in the new teaser. Justin is a sales consultant for investments from Baltimore, Maryland. He is 28 years old.
In the clip, Justin said, “When it comes to drama, you can count me out.” “But you’ll see me in the corner drinking tea.”
According to her Instagram, Hailey is a 26-year-old pediatric nurse from Orlando, Florida. She is also one of the girls coming back after Clayton Echard’s season. Right now, I don’t have many more details to share, but I’m looking forward to getting to know Hailey better in September.
Even though Romeo is a good name for the franchise, the big question is whether or not he is as romantic as his name. You might remember Romeo from the season with Michelle Young. BTW, he is a data scientist from New York who is 33 years old.
Sierra Jackson, who is 27 years old, is coming from Dallas, Texas, where she teaches yoga. She is also coming back after the season of Clayton Echard, when she famously told him, “Don’t be stupid.” Well, we all know what happened after that. Glad to have you back, Sierra.
His Instagram bio says that Casey is a musician and advertising creative director from Miami Beach, Florida. He is 37 years old. He was last seen on Michelle Young’s season of The Bachelorette, but now he’s back to find love.
Clearly, Clayton broke the hearts of a lot of girls, and this Rhode Island architectural historian was one of them. Jill, who is 27, is also back in Paradise for a second chance to find her perfect match.
Kira is a doctor from Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, who is 33 years old. She was on the 26th season of “The Bachelor,” so she already knows a lot of the other women in Paradise. It seems like Clayton’s ex-girlfriends are all getting together in this season.
Hunter, who is 29 and from Charlotte, North Carolina, works in human resources. She used to work as a Disney princess at Walt Disney World. Hunter was kicked off Clayton’s season in week 5, and I can’t wait for her to come back.
Lace is an agent for real estate in Denver, Colorado. She is 32 years old. Lace has been on Bachelor in Paradise and The Bachelor before, so this isn’t her first time on either show. In season 20, Lace tried to get the attention of Ben Higgins.
During the third season of BiP, Lace and Grant Kemp got engaged. But it looks like things didn’t work out… Hello again!
Almost paradise. The cast of Bachelor in Paradise 2022 is made up of more than 40 singles from all over Bachelor Nation, as well as singles from Bachelor franchises in other countries.
Bachelor in Paradise is a spinoff of both The Bachelor and The Bachelorette. In March 2002, Alex Michel, a businessman, was the first Bachelor on ABC’s show The Bachelor. Since then, the show has had 26 seasons and spawned several spinoffs, such as The Bachelorette, Bachelor in Paradise, Bachelor Pad, The Bachelor Presents: Listen to Your Heart, and The Bachelor Winter Games. Bachelor in Paradise is a reality TV dating show that started airing in August 2014. It features former contestants from The Bachelor and The Bachelorette. At the beginning of the show, there are more men than women from both The Bachelor and The Bachelorette. Each week, there is a rose ceremony where either the men or women give roses to the contestants they feel the strongest connection to. Those who don’t get a rose are kicked off the show.
The next week, the roles are switched, and the gender who didn’t give out roses the week before has to decide who gets a rose and who goes home. Each week, more contestants from past seasons of The Bachelor and The Bachelorette join the show. This makes the number of women and men on the show different, forcing the contestants who are already there to either find a new partner or stay with the person they are with. The contestants are also given date cards that they can use to choose who they want to spend time with alone. With a date card, many new people join the show.
At the end of the season, the contestants are given the chance to go on a one-night date without any cameras or microphones (much like Fantasy Suites on The Bachelor and The Bachelorette.) After the overnight dates, the contestants decide whether to break up or get engaged in the finale. Like The Bachelor and The Bachelorette, Bachelor in Paradise has a “After the Final Rose” special where contestants get together to talk about drama and give viewers an update on their relationship.
Contestants from The Bachelorette season 19, with Gabby Windey and Rachel Recchia, The Bachelor season 26, with Clayton Echard, and The Bachelorette season 18, with Michelle Young, are on the cast of Bachelor in Paradise 2022. So, who is on the cast of Bachelor in Paradise 2022, and when can Bachelor Nation expect the contestants to arrive in Mexico? Read on to find out who is in the cast of Bachelor in Paradise 2022 and who is in BiP season 8, which is causing all the drama this summer.
Teddi Wright is a nurse from Redlands, California, who is 25 years old and works in the surgical unit. She was a contestant on season 26 of The Bachelor with Clayton Echard. She got the First Impression Rose and was in fifth place when she was kicked off in week seven. During their first One-on-One date, Teddi told Clayton that she was a virgin and wouldn’t have sex until she got married. Clayton told her that he “would have never known” that she was a virgin. “I did think his questions were reasonable. “They were all about the future, so I knew he was taking me and our relationship seriously,” Teddi said at the time on the podcast “Bachelor Happy Hour.” “I’m very sexual, and I like talking about it, which is fine with me. I don’t think that’s what society considers normal for virgins. Every episode shows us kissing, so I can see why he was surprised.
Teddi said on the “Women Tell All” special that Clayton’s brother sent her a message on Instagram after she was kicked off his season. Patrick and Nate are Clayton’s brothers, but Teddi didn’t say which one of them sent her the DM. She said, “Clayton’s brother did reach out to me.” “I did not answer. I will say that one Echard boy was enough for me in my life.” Clayton told Teddi on Twitter that she was wrong and asked her to show a screenshot of the DMs. “Both of my brothers have strongly denied sliding in the direct messages,” he wrote. “So, Teddi, please give the people (and me) what they want and release the DMs #TheBachelor.” In a second tweet, he said, “Let me just explain… I 1000% believe Teddi. There is no way at all that she made this up #TheBachelor.”
Teddi said that she worked as a “Surgical Unit Nurse” when she was on The Bachelor. In her Instagram bio, she said that she was a “Registered Nurse,” which is her job title. A post on Instagram from February 2020 says that she passed the National Council Licensure Examination (NCLEX) in that month. “Being in the nursing program with people who get about the same grades as you, who were all called by God to be there, and who are all very smart and friendly, can be intimidating when we forget who we are to Him,” Teddi wrote in the post. “When we found out which hospitals we were going to precept at, I found out first and got my dream hospital, which is connected to the hospital Tiff wanted. When I tried to turn the conversation back on her and tell her I was sure she’d get her first choice too, she said, “No, don’t take away this exciting moment for me! I’m sure she’ll get her first choice too!” I’m so happy for you! Whatever is meant to be will be. She went on, “I’m thankful for the friends I’ve made through nursing and the reminders I get every day that we don’t have to compete with each other because God has already set aside each of our blessings.” “Wanting to help each other out won’t make us fall, but it will help us go up with our best friends!” ⠀⠀
Read Teddi’s bio and fun facts before season 26 of The Bachelor: “Teddi is a good find. Her bio said, “She is beautiful, smart, and a hopeless romantic who is ready to find her soul mate.” “Teddi was raised in a strict Christian home, but she lives by her own rules and doesn’t want to settle just to settle. Teddi is all about making a connection right away. She wants to find someone who won’t be scared off by her tough questions on the first date. Teddi is all about making deep connections, but she also wants a man who can have fun with her and isn’t afraid to go skinny dipping with her at midnight! Teddi is ready for the real thing and just wants to share her heart with someone who deserves it.”
