“Did you miss me? Hope ya’ll are ready for the beach,” Olivia, 25, teased via her Instagram Story in August.
Later that month, Olivia reposted her official BiP bio photo via social media and joked: “It was in fact a cruel summer.”
As the weeks grew closer to premiere night — which is Thursday, September 28 — Olivia shared a cast snap with her followers. “The most dysfunctional family,” she captioned the squad photo, adding a hand heart emoji.
The New York native also hinted at a possible BiP love triangle involving Will Urena and Kylee Russell. Olivia reposted Bachelor in Paradise’s September 12 teaser in which Will, 31, picks both Olivia and Kylee, 26, as the women he is “hoping to see” on the beach.
