Bachelor in Paradise is back for another season of summertime drama in August with a cast lineup that includes fan favorites from various seasons of The Bachelor The Bachelorette.
Filming for ABC‘s summer reality show started this week in Mexico. Mike Fleiss recently dropped a hint that the show is once again being taped at the Playa Escondida Resort in Sayulita — that means Jorge the bartender will be back to serve cocktails and dole out some relationship advice.
Jorge’s deal is done! He’s stocking up on tequila right now… #BachelorinParadise

Ten contestants have been confirmed by the network so far. Last season there were close to 30 guys and girls on the cast list, so fans can expect more names to be announced ahead of Bachelor in Paradise Season 3 premiere.
According to a previous report from Starpulse, there will be a few controversial contestants joining the show including Nick Viall and Chad Johnson.
“Bachelor in Paradise will feature shocking twists, surprises, unexpected guests and some of the most unlikely relationships in Bachelor history.”
The first 10 contestants confirmed by ABC are Jared Haibon (Kaitlyn),
Emily and Haley Ferguson (Ben), Leah Block (Ben), Lace Morris (Ben),
Amanda Stanton (Ben), Jubilee Sharpe (Ben), Sarah Herron (Sean), Carly Waddell (BIP 2, Chris), and Izzy Goodkind (Ben).
