‘Bachelor in Paradise 3’ spoilers: Ben Higgins contestant Amanda Stanton reportedly joins

Amanda Stanton -

With the third season of “Bachelor in Paradise” coming to ABC a little bit later this summer, it’s inevitable that you would be curious about what sort of big names from the franchise the show can snag.

As it turns out, they may have just landed one of its most-popular contestants, at least if a new Us Weekly report comes to fruition. Recent Ben Higgins contestant Amanda Stanton is reportedly coming aboard the spin-off series, which may also have several other contestants from earlier this year including Lace Morris.

Amanda is a worthwhile addition to this show since one of the primary focuses of it from a casting perspective is to have several different character types. They want people who they knew they can rely on for drama, but then also a few people who are there to have relationships and a love story that people will get behind. Amanda is in a trickier spot than many other contestants given that she also has children to think about during the journey, and she has to make sure that anyone she wants to date in Paradise considers that and is excited about it. We imagine that she will be popular, since she has an outgoing personality and will probably be one of the contestants who is there from the very beginning.

Now if we were casting the show, one of the next orders of business would be locking down Caila Quinn and Jubilee Sharpe, two of the other high-profile contestants from Ben’s season who have a ton of fans online. (Who else remembers the brief period of time when Caila was set to be the Bachelorette?)
