10 Bachelor Stars Who Should Definitely Be On Bachelor In Paradise

These franchise favorites need to be on the Season 7 cast.


Joe Park

Season 7 of BiP will premiere on Aug. 16, and like you, we want to know which Bachelor and Bachelorette alum will be on the beach this summer. Unfortunately, Dr. Joe is the only contestant who’s been confirmed so far. In January, ABC exec Rob Mills shared a photo of Park on social media after he got his COVID-19 vaccination. “We’ve got ourselves a vaccinated Paradisian!!” he wrote.

Serena Pitt

Pitt made it far on Matt James’ season of The Bachelor, but ultimately she wasn’t the one. And even though it’s unclear whether or not she’ll be on the beach this summer, she told Screen Rant in April that she already has a BiP strategy. “I would go in with a very open mind,” she said. “I wouldn’t want to write off anyone going in because I had my eyes set on someone specific.”

Ivan Hall

Ivan made hearts melt on Season 16 of The Bachelorette, but ultimately, neither Clare Crawley nor Tayshia Adams was the right fit. Luckily, it looks like he may get another shot at love because, according to Reality Steve, he’s being considered for Season 7 of Bachelor in Paradise.

Victoria Larson

Admit it: Everyone loves a villain in paradise. And after causing a ton of drama on James’ season of The Bachelor, we’re not-so-secretly hoping that Queen Victoria shows up on the beach this summer to stir the pit once more.

Bennett Jordan

Speaking of villains, we would love to see Harvard grad Bennett Jordan back on our TV screens each week. Not only would that allow him to flirt IRL instead of in contestants’ Instagram comments, but it may also provide him the opportunity to confront his nemesis, Noah Erb, yet again.

Abigail Heringer

Abigail was an early fan-favorite on Season 25 of The Bachelor, and something tells us that she would have a lot of interested suitors if she were to head to the beach this summer. According to Reality Steve, there’s a high possibility that will happen as she’s one of the contestants that ABC is trying to get on the show. Could true love be in Abigail’s near future? Stay tuned.

Blake Horstmann

Hear us out: We know that Blake caused quite a stir the last time he was on BiP, but everyone deserves a second chance, right? Sure, he might mess up this time too, but we’d be lying if we said we weren’t entertained by what was probably the most dramatic love triangle in BiP history. We want a do-over.

Chelsea Vaughn

Chelsea was eliminated during Week 6 of James’ season of The Bachelor, and the show’s style points took a major hit. The model was easily the best-dressed contestant to grace The Bachelor in years, and if she can find love this summer and also give us swimsuit inspo, then it’s a win for all of us.

Jed Wyatt

If your first thought at Wyatt potentially hitting the beach this summer is “Yikes,” then we’re with you. The former Bachelorette contestant was the recipient of Hannah Brown’s final rose on Season 15, but he found himself in hot water after the finale when cheating rumors surfaced online. Whether he’s a changed man or not, we would be lying if we said we didn’t want to see him in Mexico, squirming his way out of some really tough conversations.

Becca Kufrin

If you ask us, there’s totally room for one of our favorite Bachelorettes of all time to join the cast of BiP this year. Kufrin gave her final rose to Garrett Yrigoyen on her season of The Bachelorette and the two got engaged in the finale. In September 2020, however, they called it quits. Now, it’s been reported that ABC execs are trying to get Kufrin on Paradise, and who’s complaining? Not us.
