The first four Bachelor in Paradise contestants have been announced and we smell... drama.

Grab yourself a mango daiquiri, because Bachelor in Paradise is coming back in 2019.

And there is definitely a producer who wants to ~stir the pot~ because the first four contestants have been announced and we are already feeling the drama.

First of all, Richie Strahan, the 2016 bachelor, has been announced as a contestant.

But… so has his ex-girlfriend, Alex Nation.


How… awkward.

Mum-of-one Alex won Richie’s heart in the 2016 cycle of The Bachelor, but after dating for over a year, the couple ended things.

They announced their break-up via a photoshoot in Woman’s Day.

Since then, the Perth-based rope access technician has all but disappeared from the public eye. Alex, on the other hand, started dating a woman named Maegan Luxa, and it’s believed they were engaged. The pair has since broken up.

So, they are both single and ready to mingle and also to create some poolside drama.


And to make matters even more exciting, Cat Henesey, who was last year asked to leave by bachelor Nick Cummins after allegedly bullying other contestants, is also joining the cast, alongside her partner in crime Alisha Aitken- Radburn.

Let the games begin.
