Just when we thought reality TV could not get any more dramatic, we're proven wrong! Bachelor in Paradise is about to have some competition because MTV has ordered 10 one-hour long episodes of Ex on the Beach, a show made famous in the U.K. Hosted by rapper and actor Romeo, the U.S. version of the dating show will feature a ton of reality stars you might already know from shows like BiP, The Bachelorette, Big Brother, The Challenge, Vanderpump Rules, Are You the One?, and Bad Girls Club.

The show is set up that the cast will arrive thinking it's a regular dating show. However, things will take a turn when they find out their exes will be joining them, too!

“Imagine paradise where eight beautiful singles are looking for love. Imagine the dates they would go on, the partying, the flirting, the pure sexual chemistry. Then imagine the look on their loved-up little faces when their exes turn up… one by one,” the promo teases.

You may see several familiar names listed in the cast announcement (listed below), including BiP‘s Jasmine Goode, and Chase McNary, the hottie that Bachelorette JoJo Fletcher sent home after he declared his love for her. The cast also includes Vanderpump‘s Faith Stowers, who's recently started drama on the show after rumors began circulating that she hooked up with Jax Taylor while he was dating Brittany Cartwright.

However, one name that has us confused from the cast is Paul Calafiore from Big Brother fame. Last we checked, he was dating The Bachelor’s Danielle Maltby, so we're not sure why he'd be included in the show's list of singles and exes. Earlier this year, the couple confirmed they were in a relationship after Danielle posted a cozy photo with Paul on her Instagram account.

Just a few weeks ago, Paul even dished about their relationship to E! News: “We went back and fourth about it for a long time. We wanted it to be right. We didn't want people digging their fingers into it and interjecting opinions. I was a little worried about it because I knew people would have very strong opinions about me dating such a sweet, sweetheart. We totally wanted to do it our way. We wanted to enjoy it because we are definitely a little crazy about each other.”

So unless the Ex on the Beach is going to feature a crazy twist, it's a little weird that he's on the show. Regardless, we're still excited AF to tune in!
