Blake Horstmann, Chris Randone, Chasen Nick, Victoria Fuller, Victoria Paul, Clay Harbor, Chris Bukowski, Spencer Robertson and Ed Waisbrot all hung out in Nashville recently. Their time together led many to think it was potential alums headed to Paradise this summer.
Everyone, of course, denied that theory. One denial, in particular, was Chris Randone. Following everyone’s assumptions, he said, “Normalize coed hangout. Men & women can be friends but not have to be hooking up.” Blake also said some should learn from his mistakes.
In March Blake said, “Everybody’s talking to everybody already. And I’m like, ‘Have you guys learned nothing for me?’”He continued, “I’m like, ‘God, you idiots, just f—king wait six months and then you won’t have to deal with that.’”

There are some potential connections brewing that has fans talking. One of those was Bennett Jordan and Kit Keenan. However, Bennett cleared the air recently and said there is too much of an age gap between them. He said, “We’re so far apart in age … [she’s 21 and I’m almost 37 here at the end of June. I think age isn’t certainly everything.” He continued, “[But] the next couple of years I’m really looking forward to hopefully getting to work on some kids, and I don’t think Kit is really there yet in that regard. While I do think she’s very mature and wise beyond her years, I don’t think that’s a reasonable age gap for us to enter in at this point in our lives.”
Now, it’s been made widely known that Bennett has interest in pursuing Kelley Flanagan. In fact, he even asked Peter Weber for his blessing in pursuing his ex. Will Bennett be headed to BIP? Fans will have to wait and see.
One confirmed contestant is Dr. Joe Parks and fans couldn’t be more excited. Fans loved him during his time on Tayshia Adams season of The Bachelorette.
Another potential couple making rumor headlines is Ivan Hall and Heather Martin. The two hung out in April. However, they hung out with others in a group. Sources say it looked more like a friendly outing than a date. However, many noted they looked adorable together. Could they both be heading to Paradise soon?
While there are not many solid facts about the upcoming season, one thing is known, the premiere date. The scheduled ABC premiere date is Monday, August 16.
