Occupation: Development Manager Age: 27 Residence: Bellevue, WA

Blakely Jones (“The Bachelor” Season 16, Ben Flajnik)

Occupation: Estherician Age: 34 Residence: Charlotte, NC

Sarah Newlon (“The Bachelor” Season 11, Brad Womack)
This girl does not want her 15 minutes of fame to end. She is single and ready to mingle, and eager to get in the mansion to hang out with the hot single men. A friend of Erica Rose, she knows she needs to do anything to stay in “Bachelor Pad.” Sharing the mansion with Reid should also be interesting since Sarah shared an intimate kiss with Reid while he had a girlfriend.
Occupation: Bar Manager Age: 28 Residence: St. Louis, MO

Jamie Otis (“The Bachelor” Season 16, Ben Flajnik)
The last time we saw Jamie, she had an awkward kiss with Ben before being sent home. Jamie has made a lot of changes since she has been on the show. She was the mother figure to her siblings and when she got home, she realized that her siblings were growing up and can live without her. For once, she is living her life as her own. Jamie also thinks Jaclyn is toxic.

Occupation: Law Student Age: 29 Residence: Houston, TX

Jaclyn Swartz (“The Bachelor” Season 16, Ben Flajnik)

Occupation: Account Manager Age: 27 Residence: Newton, MA

Rachel Trueheart (“The Bachelor” Season 16, Ben Flajnik)
Rachel narrowly escaped going home on the 2-on-1 with Blakeley, but still remained closed off, which ultimately led to her demise.

Occupation: Executive Assistant Age: 27 Residence: New York, NY

Brittany & Erica Taltos (Super Fans)
These two are the definition of double the trouble and double the fun. They are in it for the money and maybe to find a guy, but nothing serious. Erica has the reputation for being the smarter, more conservative twin.She is still a virgin and has not dated much. Brittany, however, could not be more opposite of Erica, she is the flirtatious, boy-crazy twin. As fans, the twins think Erica is snobby, boring and not pretty.
Occupation: Students Age: 22 Residence: Gainesville, FL

Paige Vigil (Super Fan)
As a dedicated fan of “ The Bachelor,” Paige has preconceived notions of all previous cast members from writing “ The Bachelor” recaps in her college newspaper and admits she will be a bit star-struck. She may look sweet and innocent, but do not underestimate her because Paige will use her knowledge of the cast to her advantage. Though she will put up a good fight for the money, she ultimately hopes to find the love of her life and settle down.
Occupation: Jumbo Tron Operator Age: 24 Residence: New York, NY

Donna Zitelli (Super Fan)
This sight for sore eyes is a trifecta of beauty, personality and brains. Donna graduated third in her class, and loves drawing and writing songs. She knows people underestimate her intelligence because of her beauty – little do they know she has no problem playing it up and using her beauty and brains to win the money. Donna would love to go on a date with Michael Stagliano.
Occupation: Student Age: 22 Residence: Hackensack, NJ

The Men
Ryan Hoag
(“The Bachelorette” Season 4, DeAnna Pappas)
Ryan is a person who stands strong in his beliefs and is one to let it be known. He did not find love on DeAnna’s season, and is not going on “Bachelor Pad” to find it either – he is here for the money. But, he is by far one of the more handsome men in the mansion and will be an object of desire – could a possible love interest distract him from winning the cash or will he stay focused on the prize?
Occupation: High School Dean/Former NFL Player Age: 32 Residence: Minneapolis, MN

Kalon McMahon (“The Bachelorette” Season 8, Emily Maynard)
Kalon was the villain on Emily’s season. But at least he was honest. Maybe Kalon is not ready to settle down, but he is ready to dominate those inferior to him. He will charm the women, he will compliment the men and he will go all the way to the end just to keep the money all to himself. Plus, he is frenemies with Erica Rose.

(“The Bachelorette” Season 7, Ashley Herbert)
Nick never really made much of an impression on Ashley. He was too reserved and too concerned that he would make a fool of himself. As a result, he never got the chance for love. He finally found his footing at “The Men Tell All” and now he is ready to show America and all of “Bachelor Nation” who he is. And, he is going to use his body to make sure no one votes him off.
Occupation: Trainer Age: 27 Residence: Tampa, FL

Tony Pieper (“The Bachelorette” Season 8, Emily Maynard)

Reid Rosenthal (“The Bachelorette” Season 5, Jillian Harris)
Reid is most remembered as coming back to propose to Jillian after she had already rejected him – only to be rejected all over again. He later found love with his long-term girlfriend of several years, with whom he just recently ended things. Plus, when he was still with his girlfriend, he hooked up with Sarah Newton, who is now living with him in “Bachelor Pad.” At this point, Reid is unsure what he wants out of life when it comes to career, love, and money and hopes to figure this out in “Bachelor Pad.”
Occupation: Realtor Age: 33 Residence: Philadelphia, PA

Michael Stagliano (“The Bachelorette” Season 5, Jillian Harris, “Bachelor Pad 2”)

Occupation: Technology Consultant Age: 33 Residence: Chicago, IL

Chris Bain (Super Fan)
Chris is an animated, good ole’ country boy from Georgia. He thoroughly enjoys rush-kicking in doors, taking down criminals and flashing his tats. He is very similar to a 90’s action movie hero in that he wants what every hero wants – the money and pretty girl on his arm. Chris hopes to leave “Bachelor Pad” with both.
Occupation: SWAT Team Officer Age: 28 Residence: Canton, GA

David Mallet (Super Fan)
David is a fan of the show, but an even bigger fan of women and money. As an MMA fighter, David feels right at home being competitive and has earned the name “Kamikaze” because when he fights he either wins or dies trying. “Bachelor Pad” is the perfect arena where he will be able to dominate in both fields. He would like to hook up with Lindzi.
