Ten has officially announced the next four contenders for this year’s Bachelor In Paradise, and it’s a SPICY mix, with exes Richie Strahan and Alex Nation both in play. Whoever cast this thing has probably already earned their bonus for this brazen act of pot-stirring.

Also included in this new announcement are two peeps from the Nick ‘Honey Badger’ Cummins season of The Bahelor – there’s Cat Henesy-Smith and Alisha Aitken-Radburn, who formed that season’s trio of so-called “mean girls”, along with Romy Poulier.

Will Cat continue to go on and on about her Bali-based jewelry brand? Will Alex and Richie mack on, or give each-other the cold shoulder? We compiled some spoilers about this season in an earlier post, but go ahead and scroll on if you want to know more.

Still here? Fantastic. As mentioned in our earlier post, this year’s Bachelor In Paradise filmed at the Mango Bay Resort in Fiji, around last November. Ten has already confirmed that Cass Wood and Brooke Blurton, also of Nick’s season are on their way to paradise.

Bill Goldsmith and Nathan Favro were both photographed on set, which means they’re likely to be in the mix, while Jules BourneShannon Baff and Vanessa Sunshine, First of Her Name, the Unburnt, Queen of the Andals and the First Men, Khaleesi of the Great Grass Sea, Breaker of Chains, and Mother of Dragons, were also spotted.

Interestingly, it seems that some former Bachie In Paradise people might be returning for another go-around, with Davey LloydRachael Gouvignon and Florence Moerenhout coming back, after failing to find love the first time around.

You can see our fairly exhaustive spoiler post here, and stay tuned for much, much more Bachie coverage to come.
