‘Bachelor in Paradise’ spoilers find that when ABC announced the Bachelor in Paradise 2021 cast they strategically left a few names off the list.
Following the latest Bachelorette episode, where Katie cleaned house of five suitors, four of her exes were announced to be part of the summer spin-off cast, joining the infamous Karl who was eliminated when the men unionized and decided he wasn’t worthy of Katie and she sent him packing.
James Bonsall, Aaron Clancy and Tre Cooper were announced to be a part of the singles longing for fun, sun and love in Mexico, along with beloved “nice guy” Connor Brennan who suffered an emotional break-up with Katie after their one-on-one did not produce sparks.

Fans were very upset by Connor’s elimination, and equally as delighted to hear he would be seen on their screens again soon. Almost instantly fans began to ship a Connor and Abigail Heringer pairing.
Abigail was a fan favorite from Matt James’ season, beloved for her sweet nature and ability to not let her deafness stop her from doing or being anything. Though Abigail going to Paradise was long rumored, she was officially announced by ABC earlier this month as being a part of the starting cast of 24.
Other confirmed favorites include Brendan Morais, Ivan Hall. ‘Grocery’ Joe Amabile and ‘we love to hate her’ and ‘no one was at all surprised to see her in Paradise’ “Queen” Victoria Larson. So far, including the newbies, only 23 cast members have been announced, so it’s safe to say that spot will go to yet another of Katie’s cast.
Katie was soon to tweet out after the announcement of her four exes joining the frothy fun, saying, “When your friends start dating your exes but you’re here for it. LETS GOOOOO!”
Speaking with Access Hollywood last month, Katie had let it slip that some of her cast-offs would become castaways saying, “Normally, I watch [Bachelor in Paradise] as a fan. Now, knowing I have friends there, ex-boyfriends there, I’m absolutely tuning in.”
Katie also shared that she had no issues with her friends dating her exes, noting they were “fair game”.
“They’re my exes for a reason,” Katie said. “You can have ‘em!”
Bachelor in Paradise Season 7 premieres Aug. 16, 2021.
