ABC promises some drama in the second season of Bachelor Pad.

The network on Monday revealed the reality romance/competition show's cast, which will include the formerly engaged Jake Pavelka and Vienna Girardi. According to ABC, the two haven't been reunited since the network aired their contentious post-split interview nearly a year ago.

Also among the cast are such previously controversial suitors as Justin "Rated R" Rego, who walked off Ali Fedotowski's season when she confronted him about the voice messages he'd left for a girlfriend back home, and Michelle Money, whom ABC describes as the "manipulative seductress" from Brad Womack's season.

In addition, Gia Allemand, who was part of the first season of Bachelor Pad last summer, returns for another try at the $250,000 prize.

The 18 contestants are:

-- Gia Allemand (The Bachelor, Season 14, Jake Pavelka)

-- Holly Durst (The Bachelor, Season 12, Matt Grant)

-- Vienna Girardi (The Bachelor, Season 14, Jake Pavelka)

-- Jackie Gordon (The Bachelor, Season 15, Brad Womack)

-- Michelle Money (The Bachelor, Season 15, Brad Womack)

-- Ella Nolan (The Bachelor, Season 14, Jake Pavelka)

-- Erica Rose (The Bachelor, Season 9, Lorenzo Borghese)

-- Melissa Schreiber (The Bachelor, Season 15, Brad Womack)

-- Alli Travis (The Bachelor, Season 15, Brad Womack)

-- Graham Bunn (The Bachelorette, Season 4, DeAnna Pappas)

-- Kirk Dewindt (The Bachelorette, Season 6, Ali Fedotowski)

-- Kasey Kahl (The Bachelorette, Season 6, Ali Fedotowski)

-- Jake Pavelka (The Bachelor, Season 14)

-- Michael Stagliano (The Bachelorette, Season 5, Jillian Harris)

-- Plus three "mystery men" from the current season of The Bachelorette, featuring Ashley Hebert.

"With so many elements at play to raise the stakes -- Vienna and Kasey are currently dating, there is recent bad blood between Gia and Vienna, a friendship has developed between Jake and Gia, and so much more -- season two is set to bring fireworks, drama, romance and endless possibilities," ABC said in its release.

Bachelor Pad premieres Aug. 8.
