The cast of Bachelor Pad 3 was announced this morning, so get ready for another dose of summer drama at the Bachelor mansion! From Bachelorette Jillian Harris' ex-fiancé Ed Swiderski to Emily Maynard's season's villain, Kalon McMahon, this season is set to be the best yet!
Bachelor Pad 2 winner Michael Stagliano is back after facing tons of drama last year when his former fiancée Holly Durst fell in love with and got engaged to Ashley Hebert's rejected bachelor, Blake Julian. (Holly and Blake tied the knot on June 2!) Plus, the always entertaining Erica Rose and her tiara are back for another season, too!
In addition to former contestants, this season will also feature five super fans who auditioned to be on the show and compete for the $250,000 grand prize alongside their favorite Bachelor and Bachelorette stars. The fan contestants include sisters Brittany and Erica Taltos, who will compete as one player, Paige Vigil, Donna Zitelli, Chris Bain and David Mallet.
The rest of the cast includes:
Ryan Hoag (Bachelorette season 4, DeAnna Pappas)
Reid Rosenthal (Bachelorette season 5, Jillian Harris)
Nick Peterson (Bachelorette season 7, Ashley Hebert)
Tony Pieper (Bachelorette season 8, Emily Maynard)

PLUS: One other guy from Emily's season will join the rest of the cast in the mansion, but since he's still fighting for The Bachelorette's heart, his name has yet to be revealed!
