Katie Thurston's ex-fiancé Blake Moynes and former Bachelorette Rachel Recchia will also be looking for love when 'BiP' returns next month
Charity Lawson’s first impression rose recipient Brayden Bowers will be heading to Paradise, as will Aaron Bryant, Peter Cappio, Sean McLaughlin and Aaron Schwartzman from her season. Blake Moynes, who ended season 17 of The Bachelorette engaged to Katie Thurston, and Will Urena from Michelle Young’s season of The Bachelorette round out the first batch of men.
The women include Greer Blitzer, Jessica “Jess” Girod, Katherine “Kat” Izzo, Olivia Lewis, Mercedes Northup, Kylee Russell, Brooklyn Willie and Catherine “Cat” Wong from Zach Shallcross’s season. Eliza Isichei and Samantha “Sam” Jeffries from Clayton Echard’s season will also be there, as will former Bachelorette Rachel Recchia. Recchia, 27, left The Bachelorette engaged to Tino Franco, but they broke up before After the Final Rose aired because he cheated on her.
“Getting a second chance, I think things happen for a reason,” she says in a first look at Bachelor in Paradise season 9.
The teaser also shows that Lawson, 27, Thurston, 32, and fellow former Bachelorette Hannah Brown, 28, will make appearances on season 9.
In an accompanying video, Adams joked that the beach will be filled with “Bachelor Nation favorites who will be oiled up and have abs from tits to taint. They haven’t eaten a carb since the [Ronald] Reagan administration. They will be ready for what this beach has to hold for them.”

Adams also joked that “my margaritas are horrible.”
