'Bachelor in Paradise' twist and full cast revealed
When the show kicks off, 14 contestants -- eight women and six men -- will arrive in paradise the first day. By the end of night one, the men will hand out roses and therefore two women will be headed home. Then with each subsequent episode, two new faces will join the mix, alternating between the men and women as to who hands out roses.
Newly announced cast members include Cody Sattler (Andi's season), Christy Hansen (Juan Pablo's season), Brooks Forester (Desiree's season), Danielle Ronco (Juan Pablo's season), Jackie Parr (Sean's season), Dylan Petit (Andi's season), Lucy Aragon (Juan Pablo's season), Marcus Grodd (Andi's season), Chris Bukowski (Emily's season), Kalon McMahon (Emily's season), Zack Kalter (Desiree's season) and Tasos Hernandez (Andi's season).
They join the previously announced AshLee Frazier, Sarah Herron and Daniella McBride (Sean's season), Clare Crawley, Lacy Faddoul and Elise Mosca (Juan Pablo's season), Michelle Kujawa (Jake's season), Ben Scott and Robert Graham (Desiree's season), Graham Bunn (DeAnna's season), Marquel Martin (Andi's season) and Michelle Money (Brad's second season).
