If you’re still mourning the loss of Bachelor Pad, we have some good news: Although that specific Bachelor spin-off isn’t making a return, there’s another headed your way, and this one promises even more shirtlessness.

ABC has officially announced the cast of Bachelor in Paradise, the network’s latest reality TV endeavor, during which contestants will travel to Mexico and live together for seven weeks in an “isolated romantic paradise.” For seven episodes, we will get to watch all of their romantic explorations. We can’t promise kissing competitions, but ABC’s press release did mention something about “new twists, shocking surprises, unexpected guests, and some of the most unlikely relationships in Bachelor history.” Let’s all just hope none of that means Kasey is going to show up with a new tattoo.

Check out the full cast list below (with the Bachelor/Bachelorette season they appeared on in parentheses):

AshLee Frazier (Sean)

Ben Scott (Desiree)

Clare Crawley (Juan Pablo)

Daniella McBride (Sean)

Elise Mosca (Juan Pablo)

Graham Bunn (Deanna and Bachelor Pad)

Lacy Faddoul (Juan Pablo)

Michelle Kujawa (Jake and Bachelor Pad)

Robert Graham (Desiree)

Sarah Herron (Sean)

And in addition to those contestants, three more men will join the mix from Andi’s season of The Bachelorette.

So all in all, we’ve got a cast full of fairly recent contestants. The most memorable award probably goes to Ben Scott, who brought his son with him to meet Desiree on night one and basically asked his limo driver to stop at a bar after being eliminated weeks later. And then there’s Clare, who quickly became known for her late-night swim with Juan Pablo.

Whatever happens, it all goes down on Monday, Aug. 4, at 8 p.m. on ABC.
