Get to Know Angela, the Bachelor in Paradise Stunner You May Not Recognize

Season five of Bachelor in Paradise features plenty of familiar faces, from over-the-top male model Jordan Kimball and Krystal "Surprise! My Voice Is Normal Now!" Nielson to the always-charming Grocery Store Joe and Tia "Where's Colton?" Booth. But the cast also features one brunette bombshell you may not have immediately recognized, and that's Angela Amezcua.

A quick refresher on Angela's Bachelor franchise past: she was on Nick Viall's season, but her stay in the mansion was short-lived, as she was sent home during the very first rose ceremony. So that definitely explains why she didn't look familiar as she waltzed down those steps and onto the sandy shores of paradise after chatting with Chris Harrison. During the first episode of Bachelor in Paradise, she quickly caught Colton's eye, as they had a brief, flirtatious conversation, but Colton ultimately gave his date card to Tia so the two could address their complicated former relationship.

So what else is there to know about Angela (besides the fact that she's so strikingly gorgeous, she could practically pass as a life-size doll if she stood really still)? Read on for a few fun facts about the Southern belle.


She's a Model

You likely could've guessed this just by looking at her, but yep, Angela's a model. Judging from her Instagram, it looks like she's been cast in some pretty cool projects (see: posing as a mermaid with Dale Earnhardt Jr. and acting as a cheerleader for an Oikos yogurt commercial). Perhaps she and Jordan will form a special bond over their similar career paths?


She's a Southern Gal

Angela hails from Greenville, SC.


She Has an Adopted Dog

Aww! Angela adopted her tiny pooch, Pippy, a few years ago and loves sharing cute snaps of him on her Instagram.


She's Into Working Out

Angela calls boxing her "favorite way to work out," and she's also shared other evidence of her love of fitness on Instagram.


She's Gotten Tight With Other Bachelor Alums

Angela may not have lasted long on The Bachelor, but it looks like she's gotten close with many of her Bachelor in Paradise costars, especially Kendall Long and Jenna Cooper. Considering the fact that she was just on Ashley Iaconetti's Almost Famous podcast, we're guessing she'll be in the Bachelor Nation spotlight from here on out.


She's a Country Music Fan

You can catch Angela jammin' to music that reminds her of home. She was all smiles while meeting the guys of Florida Georgia Line at a concert.


She's Very Ready to Settle Down

In her bio from The Bachelor, Angela answered the question "Where do you see yourself in five years?" by saying, "Definitely married, have one kid so far. Be a stay at home mom. Still model some if possible. Enjoying life with my family." Sounds like she's ready to find the one in paradise!
