A glimpse of Jordan Mauger in the new Bachelor in Paradise trailer

In the recently-released sneak peek for America’s fifth season of Bachelor in Paradise, a familiar face emerges in the final moments. 

It’s the star of The Bachelor New Zealand season 2, Jordan Mauger.

He looks a little different, but we’d know that accent anywhere. In the trailer, Mauger says to a fellow contestant, “Paradise, it takes its toll on people…” 

Mauger didn’t feature in the original cast announcement earlier this year, and he’s remaining tight-lipped about his involvement in the series. He’s yet to make a comment, but his Instagram posts confirm a recent return from Mexico, where the show is filmed. 

In 2016, Mauger earned himself an unfavourable reputation, ending things with Bachelor winner Fleur Verhoeven just 72 hours after the final episode. 

Last year he took part in The Bachelor Winter Games, but once again walked away empty-handed. 

Maybe third time’s a charm for Jordan? 

The new season of Bachelor in Paradise premieres Wednesday 8 August, same day as the U.S on TVNZ OnDemand.
