Before Wells Adams worked as the beloved bartender on Bachelor in Paradise, he was a contestant on The Bachelorette Season 12. He later joined Bachelor in Paradise Season 3 as a contestant and later joined the franchise as the hotel bartender. He recently spoke to People about what fans can expect from the Bachelor in Paradise Season 8 cast.

“Everyone is very, very hot. It’s always hot,” Adams explained. “There’s always sexy people there. But this year … they’ve really turned up the heat. And it’s funny, we do a lot of really funny things this year.”

Adams also noted the show is filmed very organically so the cast can act like themselves. “Everyone’s just kind of like moseying around … we’re just filming what’s happening in front of us,” he added. “And it’s very, very real. I think it’s a pretty honest representation of what’s happening.”
