if at first you don't succeed…
Fan favorite Amanda Stanton from season 20 of the hit reality show is getting a second chance at "non-scripted" love as Us Weekly reports she has joined the cast of Bachelor in Paradise for its upcoming third season!
If you remember, Amanda didn't receive a rose after making it to the final four. Even though the blonde beauty was adored, she's a mother of two daughters, Kinsley and Charlie, and it never seemed like Higgins was ready to become a stepdad.
But Stanton isn't the ONLY Bachelor in Paradise casting that's been announced as Bachelor creator Mike Fleiss took to Twitter last Thursday to share that season 20's Caila Quinn AND Lace Morris are coming along for the journey – as well as season 19's Ben Zorn! However, Fleiss has since deleted these tweets, so we're not sure if Fleiss was just messing with fans, or giving them a little tease!
Though Bachelor in Paradise doesn't premiere until Monday August 2, at 8 p.m. EST on ABC, you can always get your fix by watching The Bachelorette while it's currently airing during the same day and time slot!
Are you excited for the Paradise casting news?!
