Given that Lace Morris is going to be a key player on “The Bachelor” for at least one more episode, the following news may not bee too much of a surprise to anyone: She’s a definite contender to be on “Bachelor in Paradise” season 3.
Speaking per E! News, show creator Mike Fleiss strongly insinuated that Lace will “be there” for the upcoming summer reality series … which you could see in turn as some sort of “shocker” that she is probably not ending up with Ben Higgins at the end of this season. We imagine every person in the known universe probably saw this coming in advance, since she is already squabbling with him one episode into the experience. (Sure, it’s possibly that Fleiss is screwing with us … but unlikely. Also, it’s possible that Lace gets in a relationship and declines before the show even premieres.)
We do understand the appeal of putting someone like Lace on the show; she’s almost guaranteed drama for a franchise that always needs that, and who knows? There’s always a chance at redemption in the event that she finds someone and shows a softer side, and if not, producers will still get what they want from her.
Based on what we’ve seen so far this season, though, Lace may have her work cut out for her staying more than an episode or two. That show is unpredictable, though, so we’ll see what happens.
As the show goes on this season, we’ll probably get a sense as to who are some of the contenders for Paradise.
