Spoilers for The Bachelor, and potential spoilers for The Bachelorette and Bachelor in Paradise. Well, well, well. Nice to see you again. After last season's magical dumpster fire that was Bachelor in Paradise 2019 (fun fact: only two of the couples are still together, and the alums who got married on the show, Krystal Nielson and Chris Randone, broke up eight months later), we're back for the craziest show on television. If Peter Weber's Bachelor season has been any indication, lots of the women would be an absolute lock for this wild show. Full analysis is below, but here's who from Weber's season feels likely to be heading to Paradise:
- Kelsey Weier
- Victoria Fuller
- Kelley Flanagan
- Natasha Parker
- Mykenna Dorn
- Tammy Ly
- Sydney Hightower
- Alayah Benavidez
- Victoria Paul
And some alums I can definitely see being there:
- Tia Booth
- John Paul Jones
- Tayshia Adams
- Chris Bukowski
- Kristina Schulman
- Derek Peth
- Bibiana Julian
- Wills Reid
- Haley Ferguson
- Mike Johnson
The Bachelorette pick gives us some clues.
The revelation that the next Bachelorette would not, in fact, be from Peter Weber's season, and would instead be Clare Crawley, a longtime Bachelor franchise alum who has appeared on Paradise (twice!) as well as Winter Games, means that we have a better idea about who's going to be on Paradise. Now everyone from Weber's season, as well as fan favorites aside from Crawley, are fair game for Paradise.
This includes contestants who were in the running for The Bachelorette—specifically, Tayshia Adams, Kelsey Weier, and Tia Booth—as well as those who made it far in Weber's season but weren't considered for the role, per Reality Steve. Hannah Ann Sluss, who isn't expected to win Weber's season, wasn't considered for Bachelorette either, to everyone's surprise, but she seems like a shoo-in for Paradise. There's also Victoria Fuller, Natasha Parker, and Kelley Flanagan, all of whom got pretty far in Weber's season but weren't in the running for Bachelorette.
Here are some potential Paradise candidates.
A number (read: most) of Weber's women were dramatic, but particularly Mykenna Dorn (she of the crazy facial expressions), Sydney Hightower, Alayah Benavidez, Victoria Paul, and Sarah Coffin (fans loved her even though she got zero screen time) could be good selections. And then we have the many, many show alums they could draw from—including contestants from last year's nutty season.
So watch this space, because there'll be a lot of developments to come.
