While most men who went on Tayshia Adams’ season of The Bachelorette didn’t find love, it doesn’t mean that their journey in Bachelor Nation is over. After two years without Bachelor in Paradise, the group dating show is finally returning to fans’ television screens in summer 2021. The show, which has plenty of contestants to choose from, has reportedly already locked in a few men from Adams’ season that she didn’t choose.
‘Bachelor in Paradise’ hasn’t aired on ABC since 2019
The last season of Bachelor in Paradise was on ABC in 2019. That season showcased storylines among Blake Horstmann, Hannah Godwin, Dylan Barbour, Adams, and Demi Burnett.
For the first time ever, BIP featured a relationship between two LGBTQ women. Burnett’s unofficial girlfriend from home, Kristian Haggerty, joined the cast. It was her first appearance on a bachelor show and reality television. The couple proposed to each other on two episodes, but have since ended their relationship.
In addition to Burnett and Haggerty’s groundbreaking storyline, the show also focused on Horstmann balancing multiple women. Both Godwin and Caelynn Miller-Keyes had a history with Horstmann prior to the show, and that brought plenty of on-screen drama. Despite Horstmann’s rocky relationship with the franchise, he has said he might return to Bachelor in Paradise this summer.
After Adams dated John Paul Jones briefly through BIP, she led her own season of The Bachelorette. There are reportedly multiple men from her cast who will appear on the summer dating show.
‘BIP’ has many to choose from ‘The Bachelor’ and ‘The Bachelorette’
Since BIP effectively skipped a summer, a whole slew of contestants from The Bachelor and The Bachelorette are in the running for a spot on Bachelor in Paradise. The cast of women from Peter Weber and Matt James’ seasons have yet to appear on BIP. Furthermore, the men from Clare Crawley and Tayshia Adams’ season, plus the men from Katie Thurston’s season, will all have completed their journeys in time for Bachelor in Paradise.
Some women contestant fan-favorites like Bri Springs, Madison Prewett, and Hannah Ann Sluss have all been coy about a possible return to dating on television.
But some men from Adams’ season have allegedly already locked in their spots on the upcoming summer show.
These Tayshia Adams contestants will reportedly appear on ‘BIP’
Celebrity gossip Instagram account DeuxMoi posted an anonymous submission. This person claimed a few men are confirmed for Bachelor in Paradise.
“100 [percent] confirmed that Noah, Chasen, and Spencer from Clare/Tayshia’s season of The Bachelorette are confirmed for Bachelor in Paradise,” the source claimed, via Reddit.
Noah Erb is a travel nurse who appeared on Adams’ season. He famously shaved his mustache for the lead. Chasen Nick and Spencer Robertson had little screen time on the show and a less-established connection with Adams. But Robertson had one thing going for him: He received Adams’ First Impression Rose.
If these three men do join the Bachelor in Paradise cast, it will be interesting to see who they make connections with and how it develops throughout the season.
The anonymous tipper also revealed that Joe Park is confirmed for a BIP appearance.
Park himself has been pretty vocal about wanting to appear on BIP. Plus, ABC executive Robert Mills even wrote on Twitter in January 2021 that Park was a “vaccinated Paradisian.” Mills said this in response to an Instagram story picture showing Park receiving the second dose of his COVID-19 vaccine.
DeuxMoi’s source’s claims are currently unsubstantiated but don’t seem beyond the realm of possibility. We’ll have to see and tune in to any further BIP teasers for this summer.
