The host: Chris Harrison, per the show's ’gram above. (As if he'd be going anywhere.) He makes an appearance in the new season's Baywatch-style teaser. Unfortunately, it didn't give many details away.

The contestants: On June 17, the first seven contestants were announced by ABC. They are: Bibiana Julian from Arie's season of The Bachelor; Blake Horstman and Clay Harbor from Becca's Bachelorette season; Cam Ayala and John Paul Jones from the most recent round of The Bachelorette with Hannah; and Demi Burnett and Tayshia Adams from Colton's season.

The rest of the cast was revealed on the evening of June 17. Joining the aforementioned members of Bachelor Nation will be: Derek Peth, who first appeared on Jojo's Bachelorette season and got engaged to Taylor on season four of BiP (they've since split); Caelynn Miller-Keyes, who battled with Hannah B. on Colton's season; Annelise Puccini, who's back for another round in Paradise after a tough go of it last year; Jane Averbukh, who made a very early exit on Colton's season; Kevin Fortenberry, who just got eliminated by Hannah B. on The Bachelorette; Chris Bukowski, a true veteran who appeared on season eight of The Bachelorette, season two of Bachelor Pad, and the first two seasons of Bachelor in Paradise; Katie Morton, Onyeka Ehie, Sydney Lotuaco, Nicole Lopez-Alvar, and Hannah Goodwin from—you guessed it—Colton's Bachelor season; and Wills Reid, who was much loved on Becca's season.

That's all we know for now, but don't worry—this post will be updated as new details are released.
