Everyone's Favorite 'Bachelor' Ex Joins 'Bachelor in Paradise'

Bachelor in Paradise remains our favorite of all the Bachelor franchise shows, and this year's season just got better: Ben Higgins's ex Amanda Stanton agree to join the cast for try number two at Bachelor-fueled love, and we can't wait to see how this pans out.


The news comes from Us Weekly, which says "multiple sources" have confirmed Amanda's decision. We're honestly a little surprised -- she has two daughters, ages 2 and 4, and joining Paradise means leaving them for another seven-week stint (or maybe just three weeks, if you believe the rumors).

Still, we were surprised. And then we weren't. Because is it really that crazy that Amanda wants to find love, too? And that she should be allowed (by us, her ultimate judges) to leave her kids for a few weeks to find the love she wants?

We think so. And if Amanda does decide to go to paradise, rumor has it she'll be joined by some pretty stellar folks: According to deleted tweets from producer Mike Fleiss, Ben Z. has confirmed (we can see them together already, OMG), and so has Caila. That's in addition to Lace, who told Chris Harrison on Ben's After the Final Rose that she'd go to paradise. And, of course, the most important addition of all:

That's only four people and it's already an amazing cast -- although honestly, when it comes to Bachelor in Paradise, there really is no bad cast. Whoever they throw on that beach will be hilarious and amazing with enough tequila in them, and we truly can't wait to watch.
