Bachelor in Paradise

EXCLUSIVE: Bachelor in Paradise's 2019 hook-ups and cast revealed

So who's hooking up with who? We've got the inside scoop!

By Anita Lyons

The first season of Bachelor in Paradise was seriously the gift that kept on giving.

From Ali Oetjen and Grant Kemp's "romance", to Tara Pavlovic and Sam Cochrane's broken engagement and of course Keira Maguire and, well, Jarrod Woodgate's failed relationship.

With all that drama, including Jake Ellis and Megan Marx's on again-off-on-again relationship, you'd be forgiven for thinking that the next season of the Bachie-verse spin-off might be lacking in the drama stakes... but you would be sorely mistaken.

In a Now to Love exclusive, a very close source to the franchise has let slip some serious Bachie bombshells, and frankly, we cannot wait for March next year!

So who's in Fiji?

We already have confirmation from Network Ten that Nick Cummins' beauties, Cassandra Wood, 23, and Brooke Blurton, 23 are already in Fiji, but there has been much speculation (until now) about who else has joined them.

So who is in?

Florence Alexander

The Dutch beauty has joined the Bachelor in Paradise cast for her third round of Bachelor goodness with our source saying she is "100%" confirmed.

While this is her second round of BIP, it was of course Matty J Johnson's season where we first met her, when she famously dressed up in a sexy school girl outfit to teach him how to speak Dutch.

But after being eliminated, the blonde beauty came out and said she wasn't that into him anyway.

But there's already some good goss about Flo before the season has even wrapped.

In fact, the Southern FM radio host has previously met newest BIP recruit and former Bachelorette Bill Goldsmith before.

And you know what guys, he's one of the NEW castmates, and boy does this cause a ruckus (more on that below).

Apparently the two met in Melbourne and Flo gave him some "friendly" advice about the show... as seems to be the norm for these guys!

We've already seen that Bill's on the island (along with cast member Nathan Favro from Ali Oetjen's season) thanks to these spoiler pics from the Daily Mail, so this is hardly surprising.

Other rumoured castmates

We've already seen a lot of the new cast floating about Fiji, like James Trethewie,, Cat Henessy, Richie Strachan and Alex Nation.

But we could also be seeing Paddy Colliar for a very short stint (who doesn't love Paddy?!), Wesley Ford (the long-haired God from Ali's season) and the addition of Britt Weldon - the random intruder from Nick's season who wasn't Jamie-Lee Dayz and Deanna Salvemini.

Sounds like a great time if you ask us!

Who's hooking up with who?

So, we already know that Bachie exes Richie and Alex are on the island, but according to our source, Alex finds someone she's interested in... and it's not her former flame.

"Bill and Alex seem to hit it off but then Flo comes into the picture and sets her sights on Bill," the insider tells Now To Love.

Yes! It's the ultimate BIP love triangle.

Last year, Florence was embroiled in crazy drama between her, Davey Llyod and Jake Ellis and things got messy, so we cannot wait to see what drama comes of this new triangle!

Bring on March 2019.
