This ‘Bachelor’ Alum From Peter Weber’s Season Would Refuse a ‘BIP’ Invite for this 1 Heartbreaking Reason
Since the first season of the Bachelor in Paradise (BIP), contestants rejected on The Bachelor or The Bachelorette look forward to being cast on the next show in Mexico. Peter Weber’s season was no different.
Certain women even pointed out that other contestants were on the show for “the wrong reasons” — implying they wanted the fame of being a part of the franchise instead of finding love. Now, one alum from Weber’s season revealed that she wouldn’t appear on the show, even if asked by ABC’s producers.
Fans felt these contestants from Weber’s season of ‘The Bachelor’ would head to ‘Paradise’
BIP did not happen in 2020 due to the coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic and subsequent shutdown. Therefore, the producers did not invite any of Weber’s contestants to Mexico yet. However, fans still have predictions about who might be asked to find love in Paradise.
“I don’t know much about this life,” one fan began on Reddit. “But, I know Kelsey was placed upon this earth to bring her chaotic ‘live, laugh, love’ energy to the beaches of Mexico.”
Many other fans agreed that they would love to see Kelsey Weier on BIP. Other fan-favorites include Alayah Benavidez, Natasha Parker, Mykenna Dorn, Lexi Buchanan, and Sydney Hightower. A few viewers also include Savannah Mullins and Deandra Kanu on their list for possibilities.
Fans also believe that host Chris Harrison went easy on Victoria Fuller on the “Women Tell All” episode. Viewers think she had the “golden edit” and is heading to BIP.
Chris Harrison named Hannah Ann Sluss as a definite for ‘Paradise’
After Weber’s season of The Bachelor, there is one contestant fans are hoping to see on BIP — Hannah Ann Sluss. She won the pilot’s final rose, but the couple broke up because he still had feelings for Madison Prewett. Luckily, the host of the long-running show is confident we will see Sluss in Paradise.
“She’s in a bikini; she’s already on the beach waiting,” Harrison told Entertainment Tonight of Sluss.
He also believes they would like to see back Mykenna Dorn, Kelsey Weier, Victoria Paul, Victoria Fuller, and Tammy Ly.
“There’s a lot of these women that I think would be really good,” Harrison said. “What’s not good for Peter is good for Paradise.”
Alayah Benavidez would not return for ‘BIP’
During the third episode of Weber’s season, Hightower pointed fingers at Benavidez, saying that she was “so rehearsed.” Victoria Paul also told the pilot that the pageant winner was lying. He ends up sending Benavidez home because of what the other women told him.
However, Weber invites Benavidez back in the following episode. The other contestants are incredibly frustrated when he gives her the date rose, although she wasn’t on the date. He ends up sending her home again.
“If ABC asked you to be back on Bachelor in Paradise, would you say ‘yes’ or ‘no?'” a fan asked Benavidez in an Instagram Story.
“As of now… it’s a no from me,” Benavidez explained to fans. “My experience on the show was pretty miserable, to be honest.”
The drama in the house was too much for former Miss Texas USA, and fans won’t get to see her return on BIP.
