A new wave of Bachelor and Bachelorette alums are returning to TV for another shot at
Bachelor in Paradise, which premieres August 4 on ABC, features previous contestants sharing a house in an isolated romantic paradise. Unlike Bachelor Pad, known for its drunken debacles, hook-ups, competitions and prize money, this installment is simply about finding love. Check out the cast as it stands now -- three more men from Andi's current season will announce later — be announced —below.
Tenley Molzahn and Kiptyn Locke
Bachelor and Bachelorette stars Tenley Molzahn and Kiptyn Locke have called it quits after two and a half years together, People reports.

Jackie, Brad Womack
Did the women not seem surprised that Brad Womack is the Bachelor?
Learning that Brad Womack — the Bachelor who's on Round 2 of the ABC dating competition — was this season's main man should've been a jaw-dropper for his harem. And yet when the ladies stepped out of the limos to meet him during the January 3 premiere, one after another seemed armed with a pithy remark. First contestant Chantal O'Brien even slapped the guy — which leads us to believe that either she had a heads-up about who she was about to encounter, or else ...
Welcome back to another season of The Bachelor where the lucky guy this year is a familiar face — Brad Womack. Now I'm sure a bunch of you are skeptical about this season, as am I, but the more I've spoke to Brad himself and host Chris Harrison, the more I think we're in for a fun ride. Hope you'll join me!
Oh my god, did you hear what Tenley said about Elizabeth? She like, totally, called her out for doing "it" with Kovacs in the shower. I know, right?!
Wow, what a crowd of overgrown high schoolers. Using language like "the outsiders," "the cool kids" and the ever popular "clique," the remaining Bachelor Pad dwellers devolved into vicious, unruly teens last night as they jockeyed for social supremacy within the house. It was like that Wild Kingdom scene in Mean Girls, only with giant fake breasts, oddly hairless, overworked torsos and Chris Harrison as the befuddled principal....
Chris Harrison and Melissa Rycroft
Oh thank you, ABC. After something like 120 seasons and only two weddings, someone finally found a way to milk even more drama from The Bachelor/Bachelorette franchise without involving Dancing with Stars. And it is the best trash ever. It's the Battle of the Not Working Stars.

Jake Pavelka and Tenley Molzahn
Did Tenley dodge a bullet by not ending up with Jake?
On last season of The Bachelor, college admissions rep Tenley Molzahn was sent home broken-hearted by Jake Pavelka. Since then, his relationship with first pick Vienna Girardi has devolved into a tabloid train-wreck culminating with a televised break-up interview on July 5 that highlighted Jake's less-than-warm-and-fuzzy side. (Sample tidbit: He admitted to throwing a GPS out of a car window when Vienna "undermined" him about directions.)
So is the fan-favorite Tenley...
