Hunter Haag, the 28-year-old human resources specialist who lives in Charlotte, is back on ABC for another chance at love.

You might remember her as the girl who brought a snake with her on Clayton’s season of The Bachelor.

  • When I spoke to her back in March, she told me she would consider BIP if the opportunity came up. She also said that the snake was originally supposed to be a gator.

Driving the news: ABC dropped the trailer for the new season of the reality show spinoff and Haag makes an appearance.

Zoom in: Based on the trailer, Haag will be among the first cast members to walk onto the beach, along with some fan-favorites and not-so-favorites.

  • “I really hope Shanae isn’t on the beach,” Haad said during her trailer spot, a sentiment shared by many of the cast members, according to the trailer.
  • Catch up quick: Shanae Ankney is a recruiter from Ohio who became the villain on Clayton’s season.

What’s next: Bachelor in Paradise premieres on ABC Tuesday, September 27, at 8 pm.
