Earlier this month, after months of speculation, Channel 10 finally confirmed the contestants of Bachelor In Paradise for 2020 - and safe to say, this is going to be one killer season. Timm Hanly, Ciarran Stott, Jamie Doran, Abbie Chatfield and Brittany Hockley will all be searching for love once again.
Some background on each, in case you missed the latest seasons of The Bachelor and The Bachelorette.
Loveable larrikin Timm stole our hearts while on Angie Kent's season of Bachelorette to Carlin Sterritt (but, all is good consider Angie and Carlin are still very much together and happy). Ciarran, a fellow contestant on Angie's season gained popularity for his honest nature - and has since gone on the gain a mass following of Aussie fans. Jamie Doran, also a member of Angie's season, was labelled the "stage five" clinger, so undoubtedly has been brought on to bring the d-r-a-m-a.
Abbie, who gained notoriety for her "villain" appearance The Bachelor during Matt Agnew's season of Bachie (which, in our opinion was not so much villain as real-girl-telling-it-how-it-is). She has since become somewhat of an Instagram sensation - gaining praise for her candid, hilarious and downright real feed. Brittany, who appeared on the now infamous Nick 'The Honey Badger' Cummins' season made it to the final but alas, Honey Badger decided to *shocker* pick no one, so both Britanny and Sophie Tieman were left walking on the beach, à la Jarrod Woodgate.
Below, a refresher of their Instagram feeds. Happy stalking!
