There will be 21 contestants in total including twins who are counted as one, alumni, super fans and a mystery man.
ABC has announced the names that will grace the third season of "Bachelor Pad". The producers have picked some of the most controversial contestants from past seasons of "The Bachelor" and "The Bachelorette", adding newbies, the identical twins Brittany and Erica Taltos who will compete as one person.
Five of the women came from season 16 when Ben Flajnik was the bachelor. They include Jamie Otis who did an awkward lap dance for Flajnik before sent home. And then there's "Bachelor Pad" season 2 trouble maker Erica Rose and "Bachelor" season 11's Sarah Newlon.
Joining the guys is Ed Swiderski who won the fifth season of "Bachelorette", proposed to Jillian Harris but broke the engagement in July 2010. Ryan Hoag from DeAnna Pappas's season admits that he is in the game for the money, not love.
The 21 contestants will compete for the $250,000 prize. Rounding up the alumni are self-proclaimed "super fans" of the reality shows and a mystery man from season 8 of "The Bachelorette".
"Bachelor Pad 3" begins July 23 at 8/7c.
