It looks like JoJo Fletcher isn't the only Season 20 contestant who is still out to find love! While the former The Bachelor contestant is heading up her own season of The Bachelorette, Ben Higgins' fourth place contestant, Amanda Stanton, is joining the Season 3 cast of Bachelor In Paradise . Therefore allowing Stanton — a mother of two and California native — to not let her loss allow her to give up on love. Instead, she's headed to paradise to try her hand at love once again.
Bachelor In Paradise, a show based off of the original shows, The Bachelor and The Bachelorette, follows a slew of former contestants and fan favorites as they attempt to find love amongst each other. This not only gives them a platform in which all of the seemingly "rejected" contestants can understand and relate to one another, but it also provides the group of both male and female contestants the chance to get back in the dating game post-elimination. And, for us fans, it provides us the perfect platform for us to cross our knowledge from both shows over the years and speculate about who the perfect match-made-in-heaven (or Mexico?) couples may be. Which, if you watched Seasons 1 and 2, is harder than you might originally think — even for a catch like Amanda.
I've got my fingers crossed that her story on Bachelor in Paradise will go a whole lot smoother moving forward than it was between Amanda and Ben her last time around. And honestly, if any of the guys watched her last season, I'm pretty sure that she's already got some suitors waiting in the wings. ...or at least I hope so!
Season 3 of Bachelor In Paradise kicks off this summer on ABC as of Monday, August 2nd at 8 p.m. EST.
