Looks can be deceiving! Bachelor In Paradise’s season two cast pose for a smiling selfie together… after dramatic trailer promises ‘tears and tantrums’
They’re all getting a second chance at love after failing to find ‘The One’ on The Bachelor or The Bachelorette.
The cast features a bevy of stars from Nick Cummins’ now-infamous season of The Bachelor, including Brooke Blurton – who memorably walked out on the rugby player.

Revealed: The first cast photo for Bachelor in Paradise season two was released on Thursday, offering a glimpse of the contestants at Fiji’s Mango Bay Resort
The good-natured photo – complete with a background of palm trees and sunny skies – appears to have been taken as a selfie by last season’s Bachelorette star Paddy Collier.
Also returning from The Bachelor 2018 are ‘mean girl’ Alisha Aitken-Radburn and innocent romantic Cass Wood.
Care consultant Shannon Baff, legal secretary Vanessa Sunshine, Brittany Weldon and Cat Henesey-Smith round out the list of those giving romance another go after that ill-fated season.
Although the show is still weeks away from debuting, Channel 10 have faced backlash for casting Henesey and Aitken-Radburn.

After being dubbed ‘fan favourites’ in a promotional post, viewers were quick to comment the majority of fans actually refer to them as ‘bullies’.
Weldon, a bubbly brunette, failed to receive a rose and was sent packing almost instantly.
Collier, who can be seen pulling a cheeky face in the first snap of the cast, will join Bill Goldsmith and Nathan Favro from the 2018 Bachelorette.
Richie Strahan and his ex-girlfriend Alex Nation, who fell for each other on The Bachelor 2016, are also due for an awkward reunion on the show.
The pair split several months after getting together, became embroiled in a war of words, and are believed to be going ‘head-to-head’ on the new series.

Earlier this year, Nation admitted in an Instagram post she did not apply for the Bachelor to find love – and applied for the experience.
The new line-up will also feature US intruder Alex Bordyukov, who appeared in the thirteenth season of the US Bachelorette.
James Trethewie, who had tried to woo Sophie Monk in 2017, is another blast from the past who will take part in the island-based reality experiment.
Rachel Gouvignon, meanwhile, will be hoping third time’s the charm after failing to find that special someone on either The Bachelor or Bachelor in Paradise.
The show is currently being filmed in Fiji ahead of its release on Channel 10.
