‘Bachelor in Paradise’ Season 4 Cast Revealed: A Review of the Castaways

“Thank goodness there’s like nothing else to watch during the summer or I’d be out of a job!”

UPDATE! This post has been updated as of July 29 to reflect the cast changes, post-scandal!

Good news, fellow Bachelor franchise junkies! We are about to be given the gift that is Bachelor in Paradise!

Back for a fourth season, ‘BIP’ brings together male and female rejects from past seasons of ‘The Bachelorette’ and ‘The Bachelor,’ puts them on a beach, and pumps them full of alcohol, sunlight and the false hope that they aren’t destined to be Forever Alone. The previous seasons of the show have produced plenty of drama and dysfunctional couples (and even a few marriages)!

For Season 4, the producers have gathered an assortment of the most-dramatic, most-ridiculous and most-fame-hungry former cast members. Once again, Chris Harrison will be back to host this tropical trainwreck!

Let’s take a look at who will be hitting the beach in ‘Paradise’ this summer…

Amanda Stanton: (Ben Higgins’ season)

Best remembered for: Spending the summer smoochin’ sweaty Josh Murray, whom she eventually got engaged to in ‘Paradise’ last season; being the mother of two young daughters

Raven Gates: (Nick Viall’s season)

Best remembered for: Being the orgasm-less runner-up on Nick’s season; getting into small-town hi-jinks and rolling in the mud with Nick during Hometown Week.

The moment that Nick found out he couldn’t go to Paradise anymore, because he’s engaged…

Danielle Maltby: (Nick Viall’s season)

Best remembered for: Being soft-spoken among Nick’s other loud-mouthed suitors; seemingly being too good to be on any of these crappy shows

If you still can’t remember who the hell these people are, click here to see their cast photos (although ABC only provided the photos of the people who will be featured in the first episode).

‘Bachelor guru Reality Steve is stating that Astrid Loch, Danielle Lombard and Whitney Fransway (all from Nick’s season) will also appear at some point, and Heavy reports that ‘Paradise’ Season 3 vets Emily and Haley Ferguson, as well as Daniel Maguire, will also return to the beach at some point this season.

Some of the ‘Paradise’ favorites will not be appearing this season, however. Josh Murray has stated that he is not going because he doesn’t want to look for love on reality TV anymore, while Chad Johnson declined because he is now in a relationship.

Corinne Olympios and DeMario Jackson, who were involved in the scandal last month, will not appear on the season; however, both have stated that they will participate in the reunion.

‘Bachelor in Paradise’ Season 4 premieres on August 14 on ABC.

  1. It makes me sad for Amanda’s daughters that she is going away for yet another reality show, and may very well bring another man from said show into their lives….

  2. Did you see that Reality Steve said 5 of the girls already have boyfriends, but are going anyway. The girls want more exposure and fame…
