As another season of The Bachelor comes to an end, we can take comfort in the fact that there is a season of The Bachelorette around the corner to look forward to. And while there is no doubt in my mind that Rachel will be a great Bachelorette, my heart is already on beach in Mexico.
Bachelor in Paradise was renewed for a fourth season at the end of last summer, and I’ve been daydreaming about who will cry, sweat and propose on my TV next.
Some of these former contestants we want to see find love, and some we just want to see get drunk with whoever they replace Jorge The Bartender with. (We miss you already, Jorge).
Others have visited Paradise before, but left with nothing but a tan or a sunburn. One thing they all have in common (if my Instagram stalking is accurate) is that they are all still single and looking for love… and more followers to sell Fit Tea to.
Check out our dream cast for Bachelor in Paradise season four, and comment anyone you would add to the crew below.
Clare needs to find love, and we need an update on the raccoon she “talked” to during Bachelor in Paradise seasons one and two. It’s a win-win!
Chad’s last visit to Paradise was cut short, and based on his snapchats, he is still looking for company outside of his dog. It’s time to give Chad another opportunity to eat meat, get mad and find someone he can share his protein with.
There are lot of reasons we NEED Corinne on Bachelor in Paradise (another cameo from Raquel for starters), but speaking of Chad, seeing two of the most infamous villains in Bachelor history go on a date would be so monumental, Twitter might have to take a personal day.
Everyone’s favorite Canadian (besides Drake) provided endless laughs and over-the-top moments on the last season of BIP, and it would just feel wrong to go on without him.
Olivia has had time to recover from the aftermath of being a hated Bachelor villain, so naturally I think it’s time for her to give it another go. She fell hard and fast for Ben H, so I imagine she will be just as dramatic, emotional and awkward (never forget that cankles conversation or Vegas dance) in Paradise.
Prince Farming needs a break from Iowa and another shot at finding a wife. Chris proved to be up for anything during his season of The Bachelor, and Paradise might be the perfect place to convince someone they want to continue their vacation on a farm.
Something tells me that Emily and Haley’s Freeform spinoff will be short-lived, and the twins should pack their bags for another trip to Paradise. The audience would be seriously lost without their commentary.
Arie Luyendyk Jr
Arie has been campaigning to be The Bachelor since Emily Maynard dumped him way back in season eight, and it’s safe to say his only chance is if he shows up on BIP and makes America (temporarily) fall in love with him like Nick Viall.
Plus, who belongs on this spinoff more than someone who was dubbed the “kissing bandit” and stirred up serious drama when he was caught making out with Courtney Robertson.
Ashley I’s tears have been a main character on Bachelor in Paradise since season two, and the show wouldn’t be the same without them. It’s also time for Ashley to give someone who isn’t Jared a real chance at a relationship.
I’ve never like the dentist, but Chris aka “Cupcake” made lasting impression from the moment he showed up on Kaitlyn’s season of The Bachelorette. Plus, he is guaranteed to bring the man tears because he sobbed when he was sent home the first time.
Alexis pretty much guaranteed herself an invite to Paradise this season when she showed up in a shark/dolphin costume. I can’t wait to see who she takes on her (inevitable) swimming with dolphins date and who brings a Nicholas Cage mask to scare her.
Marquel (and his smile) initially made their mark on Andi and America on The Bachelorette. He did make an appearance on BIP season one, and his beachy wardrobe should have been enough to get him invited back again the next year.
On a pretty superficial season of The Bachelor, Kristina was able to open up about her difficult childhood in Russia. Someone has to be there to bring the rest of the cast back to earth and keep the balance in Paradise, which is why Kristina needs an invite ASAP.
Wells did make an appearance last season on BIP, but he showed up way too late and was unfairly thrown into the Ashley/Jared drama. He needs another opportunity to find love, and another opportunity to be as funny on the show as he is on snapchat.
Liz made a splash during the beginning of Nick’s season of The Bachelor when she revealed that she slept with him at Jade and Tanner’s wedding last year. She was sent home shortly after, but something tells us that she could have brought a lot more drama to the series and Paradise might be the perfect place to do so.
He sang, he cried and he got seriously injured to impress JoJo on The Bachelorette, so I want to see what else James Taylor would do for love.
Christen didn’t get enough screen time during this season of The Bachelor, but it was clear she was made for Bachelor in Paradise when she spent more time gossiping with Liz about her one night stand than she did with Nick.
I’ve been dying to know what Tony “The Healer” has been up to ever since he went nuts and go the boot on Kaitlyn’s season of The Bachelorette.
