Do they allow bow ties in paradise? What about bromance? Because JJ is on his way!

After Monday night’s Bachelorette said goodbye to Ben Z, Tanner, and JJ, two of those men have officially joined the cast of Bachelor in Paradise. (Unfortunately, it’s not the one with the best beach body.)

EW has confirmed that JJ Lane and Tanner Tolbert will join Kaitlyn’s other ex, Jonathan Holloway, on yet another journey to find love. Only this time, the journey’s a bit sweatier and definitely more complicated.

Fans of the show know JJ as the “confident” single father and one half of the “villains gotta vill” duo of JJ and Clint. And they know Tanner as that guy who’s always around and seems to know a lot about Nick.

But as far as Bachelor in Paradise is concerned, we’re still waiting on one more cast member to join the fun, at which point we can officially start judging, ‘shipping, etc. before the new season premieres on Aug. 2 on ABC.

People first reported the casting news.
