'Bachelor in Paradise' season 7 cast revealed

The cast for “Bachelor in Paradise” season 7 has been revealed.

The popular “Bachelor” spin-off — which features fan favorites from both “The Bachelor” and “The Bachelorette” returning for another shot at love — is finally back, with 19 contestants ready to find romance at a beachside Mexican resort.

This is the first new season of “Bachelor in Paradise” to premiere in two years, as there was no 2020 season due to the COVID-19 pandemic.

This season, the only two contestants to have previously competed on “Bachelor in Paradise” are Joe Amabile from Becca Kufrin’s season of “The Bachelorette” and Tahzjuan Hawkins from Colton Underwood’s season of “The Bachelor.”

Fresh off competing for Katie Thurston heart on the current “Bachelorette” season is Karl Smith. The rest of this season’s contestants all appeared in “Bachelor” or “Bachelorette” seasons featuring Peter Weber, Clare Crawley, Tayshia Adams or Matt James.

In addition to a new cast, ABC News previously confirmed that a slew of celebrities would be taking over hosting duties on “Bachelor in Paradise” in the wake of longtime host Chris Harrison’s departure from the franchise. These celebrities include NSYNC singer Lance Bass, “Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt” star Tituss Burgess, rapper Lil Jon and comedian David Spade.
