ABC is bringing back 25 former "Bachelor" and "Bachelorette" cast members for "Bachelor in Paradise" - and two of them are from Utah.

Michelle Money made herself infamous, not just for her, um, unusual behavior on Season 16 of "The Bachelor" but for revealing in an interview that she had an affair with former Utah Jazz player Carlos Boozer - while he was still married.

She was last seen in Season 2 of "Bachelor Pad."

The other Utahn who will be on the show is Brooks Forester, who was on Season 9 of "The Bachelorette." Desiree fell for him, but he left the show because he did not return her affections.

According to ABC, "Bachelor in Paradise" offers its cast members a "second chance at love." The show "begins with 14 former cast members, eight women and six men, who travel to beautiful Tulum, Mexico, hoping to turn a potential summer fling into the real thing. However, in true "Bachelor" fashion, there is always a surprise."

And the series "is a constant love shuffle where surprise arrivals can rekindle old romances, spark new ones or splinter existing love affairs."

"Bachelor in Paradise" premieres Monday, Aug. 4, at 7 p.m. on ABC/Ch.4.
