Get ready for a summer of sun, fun and lots of Bachelor and Bachelorette-style drama!

Starting July 23, 14 of ABC's most memorable -- and villainous -- contestants from the two dating shows will come together to compete for $250,000 and bragging rights as Bachelor Pad's season 3 champs.

Last season's winner, Michael Stagliano -- whose ex, Holly Durst, married Blake Julien earlier this month -- will return to defend his title, three years after being jilted on Jillian Harris' season of The Bachelorette. (Harris' final choice, Ed Swiderski, will also compete on Bachelor Pad 3.)

Still licking his wounds after mama bear Emily Maynard kicked him to the curb for calling her daughter, Ricki, "baggage," Kalon McMahon will also take part in the summer series.

A new twist this season: Six "super fans" of the franchise (including twins, an MMA fighter and a Jumbo Tron operator) will also vie for the ultimate prize.
