Katie Thurston's matches join the Bachelor in Paradise 2021 cast

Movin' right along: although Aaron Clancy, Connor Brennan, Tre Cooper and James Bonsall didn't earn a rose from Katie—whose Bachelorette season just wrapped up— they'll now have a chance to find their soulmate on the beach. 

Followers collectively swooned when Connor made an appearance to win Katie's heart, and they were equally as impassioned when he was sent packing. 

"It's hard for me because, I don't know, I just feel like, with us, I want it to feel like you are someone I could walk away with at the end of this," Katie revealed to Connor on her season. 

Well, someone else will gladly walk away with him in BiP!

(Side note: Could you imagine if Greg showed up on the island?!) 

Watch the Bachelor in Paradise sneak peek:

The season seven sneak peek comes after the news of Chris Harrison's departure from the Bachelor franchise. Now, we'll have the guidance of multiple hosts on this tropical love journey, including David Spade, Tituss Burgess, Lance Bass and Lil Jon. 

Expect a familiar face to be a source of comfort throughout the romantic adventures: Wells Adams will return as the master of cocktails and ceremonies. 

Who else is ready for a cocktail and a new BiP season? Cheers!
