The Alphabet details the 18 contestants set to lay it all on the line for love and/or money.

[via press release from ABC]

JAKE PAVELKA AND VIENNA GIRARDI REUNITE FOR THE FIRST TIME SINCE THEIR PRIMETIME SHOWDOWN, ON SEASON 2 OF ABC'S HOT SUMMER SERIES, "BACHELOR PAD," PREMIERING MONDAY, AUGUST 8

Eighteen Former Participants from "The Bachelor" and "The Bachelorette" Come Together Under One Roof, Competing for Half a Million Dollars and a Second Chance at Love

Hosted by Chris Harrison ("The Bachelor," "The Bachelorette"), "Bachelor Pad" returns MONDAY, AUGUST 8 (8:00-10:00 p.m., ET) with its most controversial cast to date, as 18 unforgettable characters from the "Bachelor" franchise - those we love and those we love to hate -- gather back at the mansion to live together and compete for $250,000 and possibly a second chance at love. The infamous wrestler, Justin "Rated R" Rego, Gia Allemand, who's fresh from a breakup with Wes, and Kasey Kahl, who once professed his love for former Bachelorette Ali by getting a tattoo on his wrist, are just some of the franchise's best who'll be joining Jake Pavelka, a former "Bachelor," and his jilted ex-fianc·e, Vienna Girardi. With so many elements at play to raise the stakes -- Vienna and Kasey are currently dating, there is recent bad blood between Gia and Vienna, a friendship has developed between Jake and Gia, and so much more - Season 2 is set to bring fireworks, drama, romance and endless possibilities.

Each week the contestants will 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 each 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 - the men will vote off a woman and vice versa -- to determine which cast members will be eliminated from the competition.

The 18 contestants set to lay it all on the line for love and/or money are:
