New 'Bachelor in Paradise' Promo Has Us Laughing With Excitement for Season 2 (VIDEO)

If you watched last year's Bachelor in Paradise, you probably remember contestant Clare Crawley had a furry little friend -- a raccoon whom she tearfully confided in when she was so over all the drama on the reality show. Okay, obviously the 34-year-old beauty didn't really chat with a raccoon, but through the magic of editing, it was made to look that way -- and the segment was so loved by fans that it took center stage in the most unusual Bachelor in Paradise promo video that aired during Monday night's Bachelorette.


Crawley, a hairstylist from California who was the runner-up in Season 18 of The Bachelor, failed to capture Juan Pablo's heart after he gave his final rose to nurse Nikki Ferrell. No worries, though. She'll be back to try to find love on this season's Bachelor in Paradise, and producers seem really excited about it because they made her the star of this latest promo video.

Aww, poor Crawley! At the same time, I'm sure she sees the humor in this and is over the moon that she is a featured player on the show -- this can only increase her chances at finding love (and of possibly becoming a future Bachelorette), right?

Crawley will join six women from The Bachelor Season 19 who competed for the affections of Chris Soules, as well as Tenley Molzahn from Season 14, and a mystery woman who may or may not be Andi Dorfman (can you even imagine)?
