Would it be summer without "Bachelor in Paradise"? The addictive spin-off of the endlessly entertaining "The Bachelor" and "The Bachelorette" franchises kicks off on Aug. 5, 2019, and ahead of its debut, Wonderwall.com is introducing you to Season 6's key players. Keep reading to find out how you know them all…
Caelynn Miller-Keyes famously had beef with Season 16's "The Bachelorette" star Hannah Brown during their season of "The Bachelor" in 2019. Both beauty queens, who knew each other from the pageant scene, butted heads while vying for the affections of hunky and virginal Colton Underwood. Ultimately, both lost out to Cassie Randolph. Now Caelynn is looking to find love again, this time on a beach in Mexico on "Bachelor in Paradise."
If at first you don't succeed, try, try again… and again and again. That seems to be Chris Bukowski's motto. His first stint on the franchise was way back in 2012 when he was a contestant on Emily Maynard's Season 8 of "The Bachelorette," where he came in fourth. He then popped up on the now-defunct spin-off "Bachelor Pad" the following summer, where he was the runner-up. He later crashed Andi Dorfman's "The Bachelorette" season, only to be turned down by Andi, yet that humiliating appearance wasn't his last time on TV. He did two runs of "Bachelor in Paradise" (Seasons 1 and 2), only to quit the show voluntarily both times. It will be interesting to see if the third time in paradise is the charm!
Bibiana Julian is no stranger to Bachelor Nation! Fans first met the beauty back on 2018's Season 22 of "The Bachelor" when she was among the women falling in love with Arie Luyendyk Jr. Since then, she's been a fixture on the franchise, competing on "The Bachelor Winter Games," where she fell for "The Bachelor New Zealand" star Jordan Mauger (they ultimately split), then later that year on Season 5 of "Bachelor in Paradise." During her last trip to paradise, she was eliminated during Week 2, so here's hoping she finds love and lasts longer this summer!
Cam Ayala went home pretty early during Hannah Brown's Season 15 of "The Bachelorette," but the software sales rep is trying his hand at love again this summer. The Texan will join the rest of the cast in Mexico to look for his happily ever after.
Who could forget Demi Burnett? The blonde beauty from Texas stirred things up during Colton Underwood's tenure as "The Bachelor," and she's ready to spice up paradise this summer.
Derek Peth first popped up during JoJo Fletcher's Season 12 of "The Bachelorette," though everyone knows she ended up with Jordan Rodgers. He left Season 4 of "Bachelor in Paradise" an engaged man after popping the question to Taylor Nolan and winning the season, but it didn't last. Now he's ready to see if he can find another match this summer.
Annaliese Puccini is back in paradise! The event designer, who left Arie Luyendyk Jr.'s Season 22 of "The Bachelor" during Week 3, tried to find love last summer during Season 5 of "Bachelor in Paradise." She left the beach in a relationship after hitting it off with Kamil Nicalek (from Becca Kufrin's "The Bachelorette" season), but their love didn't last. The two split after the show wrapped, so Annaliese is returning to Mexico to see if she can find love once more!
We have an NFL player in paradise! Clay Harbor competed on Season 14 of "The Bachelorette" but quit after Week 3. Now it's time to see if he can find his perfect match on the beaches of Mexico.
Nicole Lopez-Alvar had a tough go during her season of "The Bachelor." The social media coordinator from Miami butted heads with fellow contestant Onyeka Ehie, which largely resulted in Colton Underwood sending her home during Week 5. It will be interesting to see how she does on "Bachelor in Paradise" since her nemesis is also a castmate…
Like Nicole Lopez-Alvar, Onyeka Ehia was sent home by Colton Underwood during Season 23 of "The Bachelor." The outspoken IT risk consultant didn't hit it off with the former football player, so she's off to Mexico to find love in paradise.
It seems like just yesterday that Dylan Barbour was trying to woo Hannah Brown on Season 15 of "The Bachelorette." Fortunately for the tech entrepreneur from San Diego, his odds will be better as a member of the "Bachelor in Paradise" cast.
Fans adored Tayshia Adams and hated to see her get dumped by Colton Underwood during his season of "The Bachelor." No doubt viewers will be cheering on the phlebotomist as she tries to find love again in front of the cameras this summer.
Hannah Brown eliminated John Paul Jones during Week 4 of Season 15 of "The Bachelorette," so the financial analyst decided to join Season 6 of "Bachelor in Paradise."
Fans first met Wills Reid during Becca Kufrin's season of "The Bachelorette," where he went far and was only let go during Week 7. The Los Angeles-based graphic designer is among the hot singles headed to Mexico for Season 6 of "Bachelor in Paradise." He competed on the show in 2018 too but was sent home during Week 1 so it'd be hard to do worse than last summer.
Jane Averbukh was eliminated during Week 1 of Season 23 of "The Bachelor." Here's hoping she hits it off better with the men in paradise than she did with Colton Underwood.
Blake Horstmann was Becca Kufrin's runner-up on Season 14 of "The Bachelorette." The sales rep from Colorado was dumped for Garrett Yrigoyen, Becca's top pick, and though he didn't immediately head to paradise last time for Season 5, this summer, he's ready to find love again.
Sydney Lotuaco knew she wasn't finding love with Colton Underwood on "The Bachelor." That's why the NBA dancer opted to send herself home during Week 6. Only time will tell if she gives up on "Bachelor in Paradise."
Many fans wanted Hannah Godwin to be the star of "The Bachelorette" after watching her heart break when Colton Underwood chose Cassie Randolph over her on Season 23 of "The Bachelor." Now, they'll get to see her try her hand at love one more time as she heads to "Bachelor in Paradise."
Kevin Fortenberry is new to Bachelor Nation. He went home during Week 5 of Hannah Brown's Season 15 of "The Bachelorette," so his heartbreak is still a little fresh.
Katie Morton made it to the sixth week on "The Bachelor" during Colton Underwood's season. Now, the medical sales rep is ready to look for love again on Season 6 of "Bachelor in Paradise."
Well, well, Wells, who do we have here? Wells Adams returns to the franchise — though this time he's not looking for love! Sarah Hyland's future hubby, who competed on JoJo Fletcher's Season 12 of "The Bachelorette" and previously appeared on the third, fourth and fifth seasons of "Bachelor in Paradise," is simply there to serve drinks!
