Playing 'The Bachelor' Runner-Up Raven Gates Is Heading to 'Bachelor in Paradise'

America watched as fan favorite Raven Gates got her heart broken on Monday's Bachelor finale, but the Hoxie, Arkansas, native's search for love isn't over.

During the series' "After the Final Rose" special, Gates had an opportunity to confront Viall about his decision to to say goodbye, and while the two talked through their breakup, the brunette beauty seemed to have something else on her mind.

"I'm happy that you found your happy ending and that you weren't rejected," she told Viall, adding that she can "definitely see the church bells ringing" for him and his final pick, Vanessa Grimaldi.

As for what the 25-year-old boutique owner is up to now, she said she's "always looking for love" -- prompting Chris Harrison to invite Gates to Bachelor in Paradise.

"I've heard of this place," Gates teased. "Hey, if anything, I know that if Nick can go to Paradise and do this experience, and find love, that I can too."

"So we'll see you in Paradise?" Harrison asked.

"Yeah!" Gates yelled.

ET caught up with former Bachelor Chris Soules on Friday, who revealed that he might also be heading to Paradise. 

"I've already been asked, and I don't know what to do," he confessed, asking out loud if it's a good idea to find love on television again. "I've gotten chubby. That's my main concern. Those guys have abs and sh*t!"
