Bachelor In Paradise 2019: Richie Strahan Is Already In Trouble
Forget love triangles, it's all about squares.
He's the first Bachelor (in the world!) to ever walk into paradise, and now Richie is walking directly into... something else entirely.
With his fingers crossed that he isn't walking into any exes (lol, good luck with that one mate) Richie wandered into Paradise with an open heart looking for his second chance at love.
Unfortunately, what he found was not one but TWO former flames from his season of The Bachelor.
Not only is former Paradise alum Rachael hanging around -- who was fourth in Richie's season -- but his actual ex Alex is about to stroll back into his life too.
In case you forgot, when Richie didn't give Rachael a rose she was pretty devastated, admitting that during her time on The Bachelor she had fallen for our fave ropes access technician pretty hard.
But fate was not on her side -- the sole brunette to make it to hometown visits in Season 4 -- Rach came back to Paradise in its first year but didn't manage to make a lasting connection there either.
Is this her second chance at reigniting the flame with Richie?
Not if Cat and Cass have anything to do with it.
Yep, it looks like Richie's going to be quiiiiite the popular fella when Paradise eventually kicks off.
And, oh yeah, in case you forgot there's that HIGHLY anticipated reunion with his ex Alex... who he hasn't actually spoken to in-person since their break up.
The show hasn't even started yet and we're being served so much tea. We can't wait to see how this all turns out.
