Chad Johnson is getting another shot at love!

The Bachelorette star everyone loved to hate on JoJo Fletcher's season (which is currently airing on ABC) is officially joining the cast of Bachelor in Paradise.

The news was confirmed by show creator Mike Fleiss on Friday when he took to Twitter to tweet about the 28-year-old luxury real estate agent.

"Chad is being Chad-ish…," Fleiss wrote, with the hashtag "#BachelorInParadise."

If you haven't been keeping up with season 12 of The Bachelorette, Johnson is that "super douche" that was sent home by Fletcher in the most recent episode of the dating show, which aired on Tuesday. After he pissed off every other suitor in the house, who could blame her?

Aside from punching a door, admitting he was "gonna cut everyone here's legs off" and refusing to participate in Fletcher's group date games, Johnson also made headlines earlier this month for reportedly buying web domains of his fellow contestants' names, all which redirected users to Johnson's personal Instagram account.

"[insert evil laugh here] hahaha," he tweeted in response to a reporter who called him out for his sneaky actions at the time.

A source tells ET that Nick Viall (who appeared on Andi Dorfman and Kaitlyn Bristowe's seasons) and Christian Bishop (Jojo's season) are also currently filming season three of Bachelor in Paradise. Previously confirmed contestants include Jared Haibon from Kaitlyn's season; twins Emily and Haley Ferguson, Leah Block, Lace Morris, Amanda Stanton, Jubilee Sharpe and Isabel "Izzy" Goodkind from Ben Higgins' season; Carly Waddell from Chris Soules' season; and Sarah Herron from Sean Lowe's season.
