Originally, spoiler king Reality Steve reported that Johnny DePhillipo, one of Gabby's final three, is also a part of the cast. ABC doesn't currently include him on their list, likely to try to avoid spoilers for the end of the current season. Steve also reported that Victoria Fuller, from Peter's season, arrives the day after everyone else.

But before we reveal which Bachelor and Bachelorette alums show up via this twist, let's see how it will work!

"All the couples are separated with one gender going to another villa and meeting new singles," Reality Steve reported. "I think the women were the ones that moved to a new location in Mexico, and were introduced to five new men brought in. The guys stayed on the beach and were introduced to five new women brought in."

Now that that's all cleared up, here's who Steve says joins Season 8 via the "Casa Amor" twist.

Well Adams revealed that the Season 8 cast "really turned up the heat."

During a recent interview with People, television personality and Bachelor in Paradise bartender Wells Adams teased the upcoming eighth season of the spinoff, revealing that it's "very sexy" and different this time around.

"This season was different than years past," Wells told the outlet. "Before, usually like four weeks of The Bachelorette would air, before we would start filming Paradise. So, you had kind of a sense of who the 'villains' are and who the sweethearts are."

"It's fun and it's funny, and it's very successful," Wells added, noting that the show's overall "mission statement is for people to get engaged and have long-lasting, meaningful relationships. That show kills."

Regarding the cast of Season 8, Wells confesses that "everyone is very, very hot."

"It's always hot. There's always sexy people there. But this year... they've really turned up the heat," Wells continued. "And it's funny, we do a lot of really funny things this year."

Season 8 of Bachelor in Paradise premieres on Tuesday, Sept. 27 at 8 p.m. ET on ABC.
