Of all the night one eliminated men on last night’s premiere of The Bachelorette, one man made quite the splash.
Whether it was a good splash or a bad splash isn’t really relevant, but it was a tad surprising when Joe the Chicago Box King was eliminated after he got so much screentime to talk about boxes of all sizes and kinds. He’s got boxes for every occasion, like if you need a box to jump out and surprise the Bachelorette, or if you need a box to hide in after you’ve been rejected by the Bachelorette, or if you need a box to carry all your stuff to Mexico for Bachelor in Paradise.
According to Variety, Joe is already signed up for the sixth season of the sandy spinoff, following right in the footsteps of last season’s Joe from Chicago, also known as Grocery Store Joe. He too was a night one reject, and he went on to find love with Kendall Long on BIP. Maybe the Box King can find a similar happy ending of his own!
Joe is only one of many, many surprisingly natural choices for Bachelor in Paradise just based on what we saw during Hannah’s premiere last night. While there were quite a few guys we barely saw, there were an awful lot who really made an impression, either for Hannah, for Paradise, or for both.
So let’s take a look at Hannah’s guys who might fit in perfectly on that beach, as well as Colton Underwood’s ladies who have already weighed in on the possibility.
Sure, we’ve got an an entire season of The Bachelorette to go before we should even start thinking about Paradise, but if Variety‘s report is accurate (and even if it isn’t), we’re certainly not the only ones already on that track.
Behold, the most recent men and women of Bachelor Nation who should and probably will show up on season six of Bachelor in Paradise:
The Bachelorette airs Mondays at 8 p.m. on ABC.
