ABC Releases Bachelor Pad 3 Cast

at .

ABC has released the cast of Bachelor Pad 3, its summer spinoff of The Bachelor and The Bachelorette.

A few contestants on the show - which puts castoffs from previous season together in a mansion to compete in contests and for votes, Big Brother-style - will be recognizable instantly to fans.

Others? Not so much.

One spot is being reserved for a guy still on the current season (The Bachelorette spoilers should offer some ideas) but other than that, it's set ... and also includes random fans of the show this year.

Yep, fans will compete against cast members for a crack at $250,000. Heading to the mansion this season will be last year's winner, a former Bachelorette winner, and more noteworthy faces.
