Bachelor Pad, ABC’s new summertime reality series, is set to air starting on August 9th. And while the cast lineup hasn’t been announced yet, fans of the hit shows The Bachelor and

 The Bachelorette can’t wait to find out which former contestants will sign on to live together in a house and compete for a grand prize of $250,000. And while this may sound like the poor man’s Big Brother, it will be big business for ABC- and for Bachelor and Bachelorette fans.

Who will be on the cast of Bachelor Pad? Several names have been floating out there, but are they fact or fiction?

Will these former Bachelor and Bachelorette contestants shack up this summer in the Bachelor Pad?

Jesse Csincsak. This former Bachelorette contestant lives and breathes the Bachelor franchise, showing up at every event and becoming the de facto organizer for all things Bachelor. Chosen by Bachelorette DeAnna Pappas as “the one” back in Season 4 of The Bachelorette, the snowboarder ended up with a broken heart and a broken engagement. Still, he seems to love to bask in his Bachelorette fame and has been an organizer and participant in Bachelor cast cruises, reunions and other social events. I’d be shocked if Csincsak doesn’t move into the Bachelor Pad this summer. MY VOTE: FACT

Jake Pavelka. This pilot has been on a steady succession of reality shows in the past year- so why stop now? First he was a contestant on Season 5 of The Bachelorette. When Jillian Harris sent him packing, he returned to the show weeks later to warn her about contestant Wes Hayden. Snitch or not, Jake was then picked to be the Season 14 Bachelor, which turned out to be one of the most scandalous and highly rated seasons of the show. And right on the heels of his Bachelor stint -which netted him fiancé Vienna Girardi- Pavelka competed on Season 10 of Dancing with the Stars. He’s been off the air for a full month now, so it just may be time for Jake to sign on to another ABC reality show. MY VOTE: MAYBE
