All-Star Cast Announced for Bachelor Pad
The franchise's latest spin-off premieres Monday, August 9 at 8:00/7:00c.

[via press release from ABC]

NINETEEN ALL-STARS FROM "THE BACHELOR" AND "THE BACHELORETTE" BATTLE IT OUT FOR A CHANCE AT LOVE AND A QUARTER OF A MILLION DOLLARS, ON ABC'S HOT NEW SUMMER SERIES, "BACHELOR PAD"

Fan-favorites, arch-rivals, villains and the sexiest participants from the hugely successful "Bachelor" franchise reunite under one roof in a competitive reality series to compete for $250,000 and perhaps a "second chance" at love, on ABC's "Bachelor Pad," premiering MONDAY, AUGUST 9 (8:00-10:00 p.m., ET). The series begins with 19 of the most unforgettable characters from seasons past living together in the "Bachelor Pad" mansion. Each week they'll square off in head-to-head challenges to compete for immunity and the opportunity to go on a date with contestants of their choice. The winner of the challenge will then grant immunity to one of his or her dates via the presentation of a rose. At the end of each episode, the contestants will vote amongst themselves to determine which cast members will be eliminated from the competition.

The 19 contestants set to lay it all on the line for love and/or money, in alphabetical order, are:

ASHLEY E. ("The Bachelor" Season 14) Ashley once surprised Jake in a flight attendant costume and was never shy about using tricks or gimmicks to get her way. She'll be sure to set off sparks among the gang. Occupation: Teacher Age: 30 Residence: Fairfax, VA

CRAIG M. ("The Bachelorette" Season 6) Craig was the "villain" of Ali's season and Jonathan N.'s ("the weatherman") biggest antagonist. Fun and games are in store when he crosses paths once again with "the weatherman." Occupation: Dental Sales Age: 34 Residence: Toronto, Canada

DAVID G. ("The Bachelorette" Season 5) David conceived of the "man code" ("certain things you do and you don't do") during Jillian's season. Among the contestants standing in his way will be his nemesis, Juan B. Occupation: Entrepreneur Age: 28 Residence: Dayton, OH

ELIZABETH K. ("The Bachelor" Season 14) Elizabeth was labeled "the tease." Jake once "made out" with her forehead when she told him to kiss her there. Shortly thereafter she was eliminated. Occupation: Sales Age: 30 Residence: Los Angeles, CA

GIA A. ("The Bachelor" Season 14) Gia showcased her "model behavior" by opening up to Jake about her insecurities. Occupation: Swimsuit Model Age: 26 Residence: New York, NY

GWEN G. ("The Bachelor" Season 2) Gwen, older and wiser among the contestants, was America's sweetheart whose heart was broken by Aaron Burge. Occupation: Project Manager Age: ? [sic] Residence: Philadelphia, PA

JESSE B. ("The Bachelorette" Season 6) Jesse B. is the sexy, strong, silent type. He'll have to surpass Season 6 castmates Jonathan ("the weatherman") and Craig M. -- who provoked him over his tattoos - on the way to the finish line. Occupation: General Contractor Age: 25 Residence: Peculiar, MO

JESSE K. ("The Bachelorette" Season 5) "The wine guy," Jesse K. melted the ice with Jillian on a glacier in Whistler. Occupation: Winemaker Age: 28 Residence: Los Angeles, CA

JESSIE S. ("The Bachelor" Season 14) Jessie S. confronted Rozlyn during the "Women Tell All," but will her "lose lips" help or impede her chances on "Bachelor Pad"? Occupation: Cosmetics Sales Age: 25 Residence: Ontario, Canada

JONATHAN N. ("The Bachelorette" Season 6) Jonathan "the weatherman" loathes Craig M. and once warned Ali what a "dangerous guy" Craig was. Unfortunately for the weatherman, the forecast looks gloomy, as Craig is again among his opponents. Occupation: Weatherman Age: 31 Residence: Houston, TX

JUAN B. ("The Bachelorette" Season 5) Juan butted heads with arch-rival David G., not just over Jillian, but over everything else. He'll not only have to overcome David, but previous poor relations with his fellow contestants too, if he's to go all the way. Occupation: General Contractor Age: 37 Residence: Los Angeles, CA

KIPTYN L. ("The Bachelorette" Season 5) Kiptyn may have lost Jillian's heart to Ed, but those unforgettable washboard abs already makes him a winner among women across America. Occupation: Sales & Operations Mgr. Age: 32 Residence: Encinitas, CA

KRISILY K. ("The Bachelor" Season 7) Krisily alienated some of the girls with her candor on the way to becoming runner-up in the quest for Charlie's heart, but she may have to check her brusque demeanor at the "Bachelor Pad" door for a shot at the grand prize. Occupation: Personal Assistant Age: 30 Residence: Los Angeles, CA

MICHELLE K. ("The Bachelor" Season 14) Michelle's unsuccessful kiss with Jake sent her home mid-date. Occupation: Sales Age: 26 Residence: Anaheim, CA

NATALIE G. ("The Bachelor" Season 13) Natalie's famous line - "I like bears" - led to an embarrassing end for her and Jason. Her past encounters with her fellow contestants may be a blessing or a curse. Occupation: Bartender Age: 28 Residence: Hollywood, CA

NIKKI K. ("The Bachelor" Season 13) - Nikki may have been dismissed by Jason after a two-on-one date, but will her romantic past with a fellow contestant work to her advantage this time around? Occupation: Administrative Assistant Age 30 Residence: Chicago, IL

PEYTON W. ("The Bachelor" Season 10) Peyton's sweet nature was not enough to keep Andy interested and she was abruptly abandoned on an aircraft carrier during a two-on-one date. Will she be tough enough to hang with the "Bachelor Pad" crew? Occupation: Cheerleader Apparel Sales Age: 27 Residence: Dallas, TX

TENLEY M. ("The Bachelor" Season 14) Fan-favorite Tenley fell just short of walking down the aisle with Jake when he chose the controversial Vienna as his bride. Occupation: College Admissions Age: 26 Residence: Huntington Beach, CA

WES H. ("The Bachelorette" Season 5) Wes just may be the most notorious participant in "Bachelor" history, having admitted to joining "The Bachelorette" in search of stardom instead of love with Jillian. Occupation: Country Music Artist Age: 33 Residence: Austin, TX

The hosts of "Bachelor Pad" are Chris Harrison ("The Bachelor" and "The Bachelorette") and former "The Bachelor" and "Dancing with the Stars" contestant Melissa Rycroft.

Executive producers are Mike Fleiss, Martin Hilton and Jay Bienstock. The series is from Next Entertainment in association with Warner Horizon Television.
