'Bachelor in Paradise': Rumored Couples Leaked, New Contestants Join Season 6 Cast

The Bachelorette is well underway and it looks like Hannah B. is still weeks away from revealing her final decision. However, Bachelor Nation is already starting to gear up for the upcoming Bachelor in Paradise premiere.

As contestants from Bachelor and Bachelorette seasons past prepare to come together for another chance at love on August 5, word of rumored couples has already begun circulating.

Consider yourself warned: Spoilers for Bachelor in Paradise and The Bachelorette ahead!

Arguably one of the most anticipated pairings, even prior to BIP Season 6's casting announcement, was Blake Horstmann (Becca Kufrin's runner-up) and Hannah Godwin (Colton Underwood's Top 3) but, unfortunately, it looks like their love didn't take off.

According to SoapDirt, it looks like Blake has become the equivalent of Dean (who appeared on Rachel's Bachelorette season and BIP Season 4) and took up the more lustful approach to his time in Mexico. Lucky for Hannah G., rumors say she may have found a spark with Dylan Barbour, who was recently eliminated from Hannah B.'s season of The Bachelorette (even if a lot of fans had forgotten he was on the show because of all time spent on Luke P. and Jed).

Speaking of Dean, despite his rocky time on Bachelor in Paradise Season 4 and a vow to not return, he reportedly makes a comeback and hits it off with pageant queen Caelynn Miller-Keyes from Colton's season. While it's not clear if the two will remain a couple, it has been rumored that Kristina Schulman, the woman in the middle of Dean's games Season 4, will return as well.

It's obvious the two have history but will they give things another go? Fans will have to watch and see to find out.

Another surprise pairing is Tayshia, who was also among Colton's Top 3, and current Bachelorette fan-favorite John Paul Jones. Similar to Hannah G., Tayshia was initially interested in Blake but wasn't keen on his hooking up habits.

Clay Harbour, who recently went through a breakup with fellow BIP star Angela Amezcua, may have gotten a second chance at love with Nicole Lopez-Alva. While it's not clear if Nicole will remain the tearful contestant, she looks to have received Clay's first rose of the season.

The last of the rumored pairings include Connor S—who audiences have not seen be eliminated from Hannah B's season—and Whitney Fransway, who appeared on Nick Viall's season of The Bachelor. The two form a lasting bond and reportedly decided to continue their relationship at the show's conclusion.

Katie Morton (from Colton's season) and Chris Bukowski (the person who has appeared the most in the franchise, having been a contestant on Emily Maynard and Andi Dorfman's Bachelorette seasons, then shown up on Bachelor Pad Season 3 and Bachelor in Paradise Seasons 1 and 2) will be an additional flame on the island. While it is currently unknown if they continue their relationship in the outside world, fans will have to watch and see to find out.

Season 6 of Bachelor in Paradise premieres on Monday, August 5 at 8 p.m. ET on ABC.
