The long awaited third season of last summer's genre-defying breakout hit series "Bachelor in Paradise" returns on TUESDAY, AUGUST 2 (8:00-10:00 p.m. EDT), on the ABC Television Network. Starting the following week, the show will air on Mondays and Tuesdays. The cast comprised of former fan favorites and controversial characters from "The Bachelor" franchise are back looking for a second chance at love. They all left "The Bachelor" or "The Bachelorette" with broken hearts, but now they'll travel to a romantic paradise, hoping to turn a potential summer fling into the real thing.
Below is the "Bachelor in Paradise" cast list:

Additional bachelors and bachelorettes from seasons past will be announced at a later date.
Over the course of six weeks, we'll follow these former bachelors and bachelorettes as they explore new relationships while living together in Mexico, in a secluded and dreamy paradise. America will watch as they fall in love or go through renewed heartbreak. "Bachelor in Paradise" will feature shocking twists, surprises, unexpected guests and some of the most unlikely relationships in "Bachelor" history. There's no telling who will find love this season, just like Jade and Tanner last year with their engagement and subsequent wedding.

Scalettar and Elan Gale are executive producers. "Bachelor in Paradise" is broadcast in 720 Progressive (720P), ABC's selected HDTV format. (CLOSED CAPTIONED)
