‘Bachelor in Paradise’ Snags Wills Reid After ‘Bachelorette’ Booting

Wills Reid was heartbroken when he was sent home from The Bachelorette during the episode that aired on July 9. That was the same episode where Becca Kufrin picked her final four. They will take her home to meet their families.  Wills was one of the favorites on the show. People on social media said they are glad to be able to continue seeing his floral shirts. They added they wished he could have his own season on The Bachelor.

Wills’ reaction

The 29-year-old Los Angeles native was deeply hurt.  He thought he would get a rose from Becca after pouring out his heart to her. However, Becca said she hadn’t gotten there.  During the limo ride, the heartbroken man kept displaying his feelings. He seemed offended that Becca said she hopes he finds his person.

After asking the driver to stop the vehicle, Wills got out and cried on the side of the road. Viewers felt sorry for him because he was so emotional.

Wills’ invited to Bachelor in Paradise

It is not unusual for former contestants from The Bachelor and The Bachelorette to participate in Bachelor in Paradise. Wills will join others in the upcoming fifth season of the popular ABC show that premieres on August 7, according to People.

Castoffs will be in Mexico from the last four years from The Bachelor and The Bachelorette. There is a total of eight men from Becca’s season.  Many of the women are from Arie Luyendyk Jr.’s season of The Bachelor.  Perhaps Wills will find his “person” in Mexico while on his next adventure with the franchise.
