E! News reported that one of the contestants of BIP is Caila Quinn, The brunette beauty finished third in “The Bachelor” 2016 and was almost named as the new “The Bachelorette.” JoJo Fletcher has been named as the star of the “The Bachelorette” after Ben Higgins chose Lauren Bushnell instead of her at the final rose ceremony.
A source told E! News at the time: “It was nothing against Caila, but JoJo’s storyline was just so compelling. After seeing how she fell in love with Ben and then had her heart broken, there was no doubt that everyone’s going to be rooting for her as Bachelorette.”
Quinn is not the only contestant from the previous season of “The Bachelor” that is set to appear in the new season of BIP, E! News reported. Fleiss said Lace Morris will also join the group. “And Lace, of course!!!,” he wrote.
