SPOILERS ahead from 2019 Bachelor in Paradise Season 6.
Bachelor in Paradise, ABC's horribly addictive summer Bachelor Nation program, has a new premiere date of Monday, August 5, 2019. Some of the cast members will officially be revealed this Monday, June 17 on Good Morning America.
However, filming has already started, and spoiler guru Reality Steve gave fans a head start. He not only provided names of rumored cast members, he revealed that Bachelor in Paradise Season 6 was already a big time "shit show." He added one guy -- one pretty popular guy from last year -- is basically the king of drama in the first week:
Interesting. Blake Horstmann was the runner-up of Bachelorette Becca Kufrin's 2018 season. She picked Garrett Yrigoyen, who turned out to be a controversial choice, and they are currently still together.
So Steve is saying Blake dominates the story -- in a bad way -- through Bachelor in Paradise Season 6. Is Blake the new Dean? Apparently it's wilder than that:
Oof. Just leave Kristina out of it this time! Some guys come into Paradise riding a wave of popularity, and they ride that wave a little too hard. We'll have to stay tuned to see what's up with Blake, and if his story changes moving forward. Remember, this is just from Week 1.
It's possible by Monday, ABC will have enough footage from the first week of Bachelor in Paradise that the producers can throw together a preview of the 2019 drama ahead.
Warning! This list will spoil some upcoming eliminations on Bachelorette Hannah's season:

Steve said Brooks Forester wasn't 100% confirmed, but it would be good to see him again (unless he quits again).That's probably not the full list, either, since last year's Bachelor in Paradise had something like 35 people.
Bachelor in Paradise tends to have a wedding, and we're getting another one in 2019. Per Reality Steve, Krystal Nielson and Chris Randone were filming their wedding this week in Mexico as part of Bachelor in Paradise Season 6. They got engaged during last year's Bachelor in Paradise Season 5. So this will be a nice love story to balance out whatever other crazy drama is ahead.
Bachelor in Paradise -- which does pay contestants, unlike The Bachelor and Bachelorette -- premieres Monday, August 5 at 8 p.m. on ABC. Hannah Brown's The Bachelorette Season 15 is still currently airing Mondays at 8 p.m. on ABC. Want spoilers for how her season reportedly ends? She's said to be engaged right now to this chosen one.
