'Bachelor in Paradise' Mystery Cast Member Never Appeared on 'Bachelor' or 'Bachelorette'

Are you guys getting excited about Season 2 of Bachelor in Paradise? Filming has already begun in Nuevo Vallarta, Mexico, and we hear the majority of the cast members — a whopping 16 out of 25 — have been pulled from Chris Soules' Bachelor season and Kaitlyn Bristowe's Bachelorette. Nothing surprising there, right? What is quite a shock is that one cast member is totally new — he has never appeared on the show and his only connection to it is that he is someone's sibling. Any guesses?


The popular summer reality show doesn't really go off the grid when it comes to its contestants — who are chosen from the pool of many, many attractive men and women who didn't win Bachelor or Bachelorette. For whatever reason, producers decided to shake things up this season by throwing a hot shark into the tank and everyone is trying to crack the identity of this sibling.

So far, here are our best guesses. Texas girl Carly Waddell, who appeared on Season 19 of the Bachelor and will appear as a contestant on Bachelor in Paradise, has been showing off her hot brother, Denton, on Instagram and making it crystal clear that he is single, ladies:

And then there's contestant Michelle Money from Season 15, who has also been advertising her cute single brothers on Instagram. Here's Jeff:

And, apparently, she is also on the look-out for a nice girl for her brother, Doug, as well:

Can you ask for a better sibling?

We'll have to wait a little while longer until Mystery Man's true identity is revealed — in the meantime, let's take a moment to ruminate on whether this is the worst idea in reality show history. You'd have to be one cool sibling to be able to watch your sister or brother hook up left and right. Will this casting just create unnecessary drama? Never mind — that might actually make this a super-fun season to watch!

What do you think about this newbie cast member? Who do you think he is?
