Bachelor in Paradise Season 5: Meet the Gorgeous Cast!

ABC has announced the full cast for Bachelor in Paradise Season 5.

You remember Bachelor in Paradise, right? 

The series that nearly got canceled due to a dangerous mixture of alcohol and sex?

With those assault allegations apparently totally in the past, the network is moving ahead with a new batch of disposed Bachelor and Bachelorette suitors, all looking for love on reality television (at least) one more time.

Who has been tabbed to get wasted and have intercourse while pretending to develop real feelings for a potential wife or husband?

Find out below!


She’s a model who was kicked off Nick Viall’s season on the very first night. We know basically nothing about her.


She suffered through Arie’s season of The Bachelor and made it known that she was in a bumper car accident AND got attacked by a dog in her past.


Remember when she wore just a sports bra on a date with Nick Viall? Granted, they were on a track and field date. Anyway… she’s on the show.


That’s her real name, we checked. She nearly made it to the end of Winter Games in a relationship with Jordan, the former Bachelor in New Zealand.


She received the first impression rose from Arie… and then it was all downhill from there basically. She was sent packing shortly thereafter.


He was just kicked off Becca’s season after arriving in a chicken suit on the first night. He then fell off of the top bunk and broke his nose. He ended his epic run by being sent home on the two-on-one date.

The aptly-named Michelle Money was gold for the franchise. As one of the most attractive women ever to appear on it, she defied convention by becoming more likable with every appearance on The Bachelor’s many summer spinoffs. That’s hard to pull off.

4. Kaitlyn Bristowe in a Pink Bikini

Kaitlyn Bristowe looks gorgeous in this bikini, though she usually prefers one-pieces. She and fiance Shawn Booth still haven’t set the date yet, but she has frozen her eggs — with the help of fertility nurse Whitney Bischoff, to whom she lost in Season 19. Wild.

5. That’s So Raven (Gates)

Raven Gates may have made waves with her revelation that she’d never had an orgasm, but she’s still happily dating Adam Gottschalk after the two met on Season 4 of Bachelor in Paradise. Maybe he’s doing something right.

6. Rachel Lindsay in a Black Top

Rachel Lindsay was the franchise’s first-ever black Bachelorette, and she is as gorgeous as she is smart. Some question her wisdom, after she dumped Peter Kraus for Bryan Abasolo, but no one questions her smarts or hotness.

Josiah Duggar: Bachelor Party Details Leave Fans STUNNED!

It’s not unusual for the Duggar family to go to great lengths to keep the details of an upcoming wedding under wraps.

After all, there are tens of thousands of obsessive fans who would probably love to crash the party, and with 900 or so guests in attendance, it might be quite some time before anyone noticed the interloper in their midst.

But the level of secrecy surrounding Josiah Duggar’s upcoming nuptials hasn’t been seen before — and fans are beginning to wonder what the young couple has to hide.

Josiah got engaged to Lauren Swanson back in March, and the couple was originally scheduled for a June wedding.

As we’ve learned from Josiah’s older siblings, Duggar courtships generally move very fast, 

After all, in the Duggars’ world, time that’s not spent procreating is time that’s been wasted.

The planning process was underway and Josiah and Lauren were reportedly very eager to tie the knot.

Then something very unexpected happened …

Josiah and Lauren postponed their wedding, pushing it all the way back to New Year’s Eve.

Yes, without warning or explanation, the couple decided to delay the wedding by six months.

For context, Duggar couples usually meet, court, and get married in less than six months.

The situation has fans particularly concerned, as unlike his siblings, Josiah has courted before.

The 21-year-old was briefly in a relationship with Marjorie Jackson, but they quietly went their separate ways, making Josiah the first Duggar of his generation to enter a courtship that didn’t end in marriage.

Is this a case of history repeating itself, or did Josiah and Lauren mutually decide to push their wedding date back?

At this point, it seems to be the latter, as pre-wedding festivities that were planned before the postponement are currently underway.

Yes, as In Touch Weekly reports, Josiah’s bachelor party took place last week, and the event was not what fans expected.

For one thing, a Duggar was permitted to have a bachelor party, proving once again that Josiah is the family rebel.

On top of that, the party was a massive affair, complete with some of the Duggar’s famous friends in attendance.

Lawson Bates hung out with Anna Duggar, and fans suspect the rest of the Bates family was there, as well.

Needless to say, this wasn’t your typical bachelor party.

Children were in attendance, and it was a very family-friendly affair — but that should go without saying when you’re talking about the Duggar clan.

Of course, the odd timing and the massive guest list have left fans wondering if this was really a bachelor party … or something else entirely.

After all, who holds a bachelor party seven whole months before the wedding?

Rumors are already circulating that Josiah and Lauren used the occasion to announce to their assembled family and friends that they’ve decided not to get married, but that seems like a stretch.

Josiah may be the family rebel — but there’s only so much Jim Bob will tolerate.

Arie Luyendyk, Jr.: The Bachelor EDITED Me to Make Me Look Cruel! I Feel BETRAYED!

One can only imagine the betrayal that Becca Kufrin must have felt during Arie’s brutal breakup, all captured on camera and broadcast to the world.

But now, Arie is speaking up — about his decision to dump Becca and propose to Lauren. And the decision to film it.

And as it turns out, Arie says that he feels betrayed — by the producers. He claims that things were “completely edited.”

In a new interview with GQ, Arie tells the interviewer that he was “haunted” by the thought that, in choosing Becca, he’d allowed his soul mate to slip away.

So he called Lauren on New Year’s Eve.

“As soon as I heard her voice,” he says.

“I knew that I had to end things with Becca.”

Instead of simply breaking things off with Becca, though, Arie apparently went to producers first.

He says that they were the ones who pitched bringing in cameras.

Arie says that these silver-tongued producers talked him into bringing in the cameras by promising him that this was the best way to move forward.

By filming it, they allegedly told him, he would be able to show the Bachelor Nation that he was just being honest to his feelings while being respectful of Becca’s.

Arie says that they told him:

“‘Then we can show you going back to Lauren, and people are going to rally behind you because you took this big risk and you did it for love.'”

He says that the producers persuaded him by assuring him that people would be on his side.

“‘At the end of the day, people will just want to see you happy.'”

Obviously, very few people are invested in Arie’s happiness these days, even though he and Lauren have announced their wedding date and venue.

“You’ve got to understand,” Arie tells the interviewer. “These people were my friends.”

This, he says, is why he trusted them. But he now feels “100 percent” betrayed.

Then, Arie has some damning words to share about the actual breakup scene with Becca.

You know, the one hailed as “the first completely unedited scene in reality television history” by ABC’s promotions?

Arie says that this was hogwash.

“It was completely edited,” he accuses.

The 40 minute segment was agonizing to watch, and he suggests that it was intended to be that way from the beginning.

“I was told to stay on that couch.”

We guess that we know what Arie would do if the Milgram experiment were performed today.

“I tried to leave, and then production was like, ‘You need to go back inside. She’s finally calming down. I feel like you owe it to her to have this conversation.'”

Good advice? Maybe not. But production’s job is to make good television, not to be your life coach.

“So then I went back in the house.”

He confirms that production tried to discourage him from leaving.

“Yeah. I left, came back. I stepped away from the couch, I went back to the couch.”

But the Bachelor Nation didn’t see that part.

“They cut out, obviously, production talking to me from 10 feet away.”

Arie says that, by editing out their instructions for him to remain, the resulting video “was super unfair to me.”

But he does acknowledge that, you know, this is how reality television works.

“It’s their job to make it entertaining for people.”

It is interesting to hear that Arie is trying to cast of blame to make himself look better.

Just because something was someone else’s suggestion doesn’t mean that you are blameless for doing it.

And they would have had to try harder to make him look insensitive if he had come across as more compassionate.

Rachel Lindsay: Bachelor Fans Are Too Racist to Have Another Black Bachelorette

Rachel Lindsay was The Bachelorette‘s first black leading lady. A lot of people were troubled that it took until Season 13 for that to happen.

Now, Rachel is engaged, but she’s not optimistic about the chances of seeing another black Bachelorette in the near future.

Why? Because, well, the viewers are racist.

Speaking to Us Weekly, Rachel Lindsay shares her doubts about the next black Bachelorette lead.

“I don’t think Bachelor Nation is ready for the diversity of a lead … an African American lead.”

That is … so heartbreaking to hear.

Rachel does clarify that she thinks that there will be leads of color in the future, but she says:

“I think there’ll be an [African American] man before there’ll be another woman.”

That is, unfortunately, what happens in a culture where white (among other things) is treated as “default.”

Her fiancee, Bryan Abasolo, adds:

“I think there definitely needs to be more diversity on the show.”

That is something that a number of fans have called four.

The surplus of Laurens on the last season of The Bachelor really illustrated how homogenous the casts can be.

Bryan says: “Whether America is ready for it, that’s yet to be seen.”

Rachel interjects, saying that she has more concerns about the franchise’s fanbase than she does about overall American culture.

“It’s not America; it’s Bachelor Nation.”

Rachel explains that, even if Arie’s brutal breakup had never happened, whoever would have been the lead in Becca Kufrin’s stead would not have been black.

“I don’t think that there would have been two black Bachelorettes in a row.”

And she can point to exactly why.

“I just don’t think the nation … I mean look at the ratings from the season.”

Her season’s ratings, she says, were “significantly lower than Jojo’s.”

That is heartbreaking.

Rachel says that she didn’t see racist trolling against her on social media … which is totally believable, if she has never once checked her mentions from people she doesn’t already follow.

Bryan admits that he “definitely saw it.”

“There was a lot of backlash in terms of race for her, and I think she handled herself with such grace and elegance and pride.”

Remember, there was even a racist guy on her season — though not for long.

“I think she represented the African American community beautifully.”

That she did.

Racial representation is not and has never been a strong suit of The Bachelor.

Are so many members of the Bachelor Nation truly so very racist that they just won’t tune in to watch a black woman find love?

We’d love to believe that there’s another culprit.

But Rachel brings up a great point. And something has to change.

For that matter, many in the Bachelor Nation have wanted diversity in other ways. A Bachelor or Bachelorette. A trans Bachelor or Bachelorette.

And let’s not forget that racial diversity isn’t limited to the African American community.

Representation is important.
