Bachelor in Paradise Season 6: Meet the Fan Favorites and Their Love Quests


The long-awaited season six of “Bachelor in Paradise” hit the screens last month, with Chris Harrison returning as the main host. The show features celebrities from previous seasons and some fresh faces, all gathering at the Playa Escondida resort in Mexico. Here, they’ll try to mend their broken hearts and find love once more, inevitably leading to drama, new relationships, and rivalries. Harrison claims that season 6 will be the best yet, keeping viewers on the edge of their seats. Among the cast, some have already established themselves as fan favorites. Let’s take a closer look at these stars according to The List:

1. John Paul Jones

John Paul Jones, the charming and humorous contestant from “The Bachelorette” season 15, is best known for insisting on being called by his full name. He was among the persistent suitors vying for Hannah Brown’s heart but ultimately failed. Now, he’s back in season 6 to give love another shot. According to his Fandom profile, John Paul Jones is a professional financial analyst from Maryland. He has a peculiar daydreaming habit, which may have contributed to his downfall with Hannah. He enjoys traveling, pondering the meaning of life, and never turns down a glass of champagne. Reports suggest that he’s already causing a stir in the show, having recently clashed with fellow contestant Derek Peth over Tayshia Adams.

2. Derek Peth

Derek Peth is another hotshot featuring in “Bachelor in Paradise” season 6. He first appeared in season 12 of “The Bachelorette” but was eliminated early on. Undeterred, he returned for season 4 of “Bachelor in Paradise” and found success, winning the season and capturing Taylor Nolan’s heart. However, their relationship didn’t last, and Derek is back for more. He found himself in a love triangle with Demi Burnett and her girlfriend. According to Cinema Blend, Demi chose her girlfriend over Derek, and after another confrontation with John, he left the show. Born in Waverly, Iowa, on December 6, 1987, Derek is a professional commercial banker currently living and working in New York.

3. Blake Horstmann

Blake Horstmann is another contestant returning for “Bachelor in Paradise” season 6. He became a fan favorite during Becca Kufrin’s season of “The Bachelorette,” finishing as the runner-up. However, he’s been quite the player in the months leading up to the show, reportedly engaging in romantic relationships with several women who are also appearing on the show, such as Tayshia Adams, Kristina Schulman, Hannah Godwin, and Caelynn Miller-Keyes. This is bound to make his time on the show quite complicated. According to Fandom, Blake was born on April 22, 1989, in Bailey, Colorado. He’s currently a sales representative and enjoys swing dancing. Fans can expect him to make a splash this season.

His ongoing search for love has brought him to the current season of “Bachelor in Paradise.” He first competed in season 13 of “The Bachelorette,” winning Rachael Lindsay’s heart but was eliminated after introducing her to his parents. He later appeared on season 4 of “Bachelor in Paradise,” which was marked by his messy love triangle with Danielle Lombard and Kristina Schulman. After failing to find love, he returned for “The Bachelor Winter Games” and fell for Lesley Murphy, but their relationship was short-lived. Now, Dean is back and ready for another shot at love. Born in Venice, California, on April 17, 1991, Dean currently works as a startup recruiter.

5. Mike Johnson

Mike Johnson is also gracing the current season of “Bachelor in Paradise.” A fan favorite, many are rooting for him to become the next season’s “Bachelor,” which would make him the first Black Bachelor in the series. Mike first appeared on season 15 of “The Bachelorette” and was a frontrunner in the race to win Hannah Brown’s heart. However, she broke his heart, claiming it was the hardest goodbye she ever had to say. After recovering from the heartbreak, Mike returned to the show to give love another chance. Unfortunately, he was eliminated in the last rose ceremony. Mike is a retired vet and portfolio manager who enjoys visiting trampoline parks and practicing Krav Maga. Having traveled to over 30 countries during his time in the military, Mike describes himself as a fun-loving, wild city boy.
