Nearly two years since the last tropical romance, 19 sexy singles have joined the cast for the highly anticipated return of Bachelor in Paradise, with fan favorites and standout sweethearts from past seasons of The Bachelor and The Bachelorette.

With the beach back open, Bachelor in Paradise returns for its seventh season, Monday, August 16, 8:00 EDT on ABC.

Returning for the first time in two years following the industry-wide COVID shutdown, fan-favorite alums are heading back to the romantic resort in Mexico to continue their journey for love.

The upcoming season will mark the franchise's first go-around without the face of Bachelor Nation, host Chris Harrison, following his highly-publicized scandal last year. Harrison came under a lot of heat after defending contestant Rachael Kirkconnell, who was embroiled in a racially insensitive controversy. The long-time host publicly left the franchise in June with a $9 million payout.

No permanent host has been selected to take the microphone from Harrison at this time. However, for the upcoming Bachelor in Paradise season, Harrison will be replaced by a string of celebrity hosts, including David Spade, Lil Jon, Lance Bass, and Tituss Burgess.
