'Bachelor in Paradise' spoilers -- The couples, Rose Ceremony details and current status of relationships
By Elizabeth Kwiatkowski, 08/07/2017
Bachelor in Paradise spoilers reveal which couples lasted all the way to the end of this summer's edition, whether the pairs are still together, and more details about what unfolded on Season 4.
[Spoiler Warning: This is an in-depth story about the Bachelor in Paradise 4 couples as well as the current status of their relationships, so if you don't want to find out what happened, please stop reading now].
Bachelor in Paradise's fourth season taped over the course of two weeks (interrupted) at Playa Escondida in Sayulita, Mexico, according to Reality Steve spoiler blogger Steve Carbone.
The dramatic turning point of the season was when Bachelor in Paradise host Chris Harrison allegedly addressed the remaining couples after the third -- and final -- Rose Ceremony and informed them that overnight Fantasy Suite dates were ahead.
Chris told the bachelor and bachelorette couples that if they wanted to continue on in the process, they must each enjoy an overnight Fantasy Suite date. Otherwise, the couple could choose to leave Paradise together, and cultivate a relationship in the real world, or separately as single people, according to Carbone.
But there was allegedly no climactic conclusion to the season -- no Final Rose Ceremony, no engagements, no fairy-tale endings. Carbone says Bachelor in Paradise ended with the three remaining pairs discussing their experiences the morning after the Fantasy Suites.
"Our time in Paradise was cut down and compacted, therefore the show will extend back into the real world... It's going to be interesting and I think a lot more fun for all of us," Chris explained.
"[The finale will] be more like After the Final Rose where we're live, the show is wrapping up, and there will be people involved that were on the show because we have to find out where everybody is."
Bachelor in Paradise's fourth season is set to debut on August 14 although the show was initially scheduled to premiere one week earlier.
The delay is a direct result of production temporarily shutting down in June over a drunken sexual encounter between Corinne Olympios and DeMario Jackson in which consent was in question.
After Warner Bros. conducted an investigation and found no evidence of misconduct or sexual assault, Season 4 of Bachelor in Paradise resumed filming. Neither Corinne or DeMario returned to Mexico with the rest of the original cast, but they will conduct interviews with Chris in a special that will air mid-season.
Now, let's move on to the five couples who allegedly decided to leave Paradise separately before the round of overnight dates.
Since filming wrapped in early July, Jasmine and Jack have allegedly expressed "mutual interest" in each other and may have struck up a romance; however, the couple is not engaged despite making jokes about it on social media.
Kristina allegedly eliminated herself during a Rose Ceremony because she was fed up with Dean's inability to make up his mind. Dean and Danielle, however, chose to depart Mexico as singles shortly afterwards.
Carbone also shared specifics on each serious, long-lasting romance that unfolded in Paradise.
Raven was one of the original Season 4 cast members, meaning she showed up to the resort on Day 1 of filming. Carbone claims that Raven's first date was actually with Robby.
Three one-on-one dates were documented over the course of the first several days, including Raven's, but then filming was suspended on June 5 before the first Rose Ceremony due to the Corinne and DeMario scandal.
All the cast members were sent home for the Warner Bros. investigation but returned to continue taping on June 24. Carbone says the next day, Adam arrived at the Mexican resort and asked Raven out on a date.
At the first Rose Ceremony, the ladies had the power to hand out roses and Raven allegedly offered her rose to Adam.
Sarah Vendal then arrived and asked Adam out on a date -- a request he gladly accepted. According to Carbone, this wasn't the first time Sarah and Adam met; they hooked up in the real world while filming was suspended.
However, Adam and Raven allegedly hashed out their issues and continued on with their romance. At the second Rose Ceremony of the season when the men were in power, Adam handed out his rose to Raven, eliminating Sarah in the process. Raven allegedly returned the favor at the third Rose Ceremony, giving Adam her rose.
Following the pair's romantic overnight date, which allegedly took place only a couple of weeks after Adam hooked up with Sarah, Raven and Adam left the show dating.
Carbone claims Raven and Adam are still seeing each other despite living in different states. Ironically, Sarah currently resides in Dallas, TX, where Adam lives.
Next up is Derek and Taylor, the couple known for being the most stable relationship to come out of Paradise this season, according to Carbone.
Derek and Taylor were both original cast members on the series. Following the brief production shutdown, they allegedly went on a date in Paradise and remained together for the rest of the show, giving roses to each other at every Rose Ceremony.
It has yet to be announced whether Bachelor in Paradise will have an aftershow every week, but Carbone claims Derek will probably propose to Taylor on "the reunion special" because they spend a lot of time together. (Based on what Chris Harrison said, this would occur on the live finale).
Derek even recently celebrated Taylor's birthday with her in Seattle.
Now let's discuss Daniel and Lacey's story. Carbone says they had hooked up before Bachelor in Paradise even began taping this summer, and Lacey is crazy about him. However, Carbone alleges Daniel is obsessed with fame and being a TV star, so Lacey is probably more into him than he is into her.
"They're currently 'dating,' but that doesn't mean much in this franchise," Carbone explains.
Moving on to the five couples who left Mexico separately, the only pairs who are still together are Amanda and Robby as well as Dean and his crazy love triangle.
Amanda and Robby were both members of the original cast, and according to Carbone, they hit it off right away and coupled up at the first Rose Ceremony in Paradise when Amanda chose to give Robby a rose.
The pair allegedly stayed together for the rest of the show -- with Amanda and Robby being alternate rose recipients at each ceremony -- until Chris Harrison announced the pairs needed to take the process seriously and stay for a final overnight date or go home.
Although Amanda and Robby chose not to take advantage of an overnight Fantasy Suite date, they have apparently maintained a relationship post-filming.
Amanda and Robby were recently photographed walking hand-in-hand and wearing matching outfits during a stroll in West Hollywood, CA.
They both currently live in the Los Angeles area and were seen spending time together at The Ivory restaurant about two weeks ago before joining fellow The Bachelor franchise alums Ashley Iaconetti and Jonathan at a Los Angeles Dodgers baseball game.
During the last weekend in July, Amanda and Robby also attended a birthday party for Raven together.
"Robby and Amanda have been spending a lot of time together," a source told E! News late last month. "They are very affectionate towards each other."
And last but not least, there is The Bachelorette Season 13 favorite, Dean.
Dean and Kristina met on the first day of filming and enjoyed one of the first three one-on-one dates of the season before production was halted in early June. When the original cast returned to Mexico and filming resumed, Kristina allegedly gave Dean her rose at the first Rose Ceremony.
Danielle then arrived in Paradise and asked Dean out on a date, and Carbone says this is where the love triangle essentially began.
"Dean basically likes both of them. [He] was with Kristina from the [get-go], they spent time together after filming was stopped, they go back to film, DLo arrives, they go on a date and, well, all hell breaks loose. This will be the biggest drama of the season," Carbone teases.
Despite the drama, Dean gave his rose to Kristina at the season's second Rose Ceremony.
From that point on, Dean allegedly spent time with Danielle during the day and then with Kristina at night. Tension heightened at the third Rose Ceremony of Season 4 when the women were in power and Danielle gave her rose to Dean, which he accepted.
Kristina actually eliminated herself at this Rose Ceremony, says Carbone, because she was sick of Dean's back and forth antics. Kristina allegedly gave a speech about feeling unappreciated before exiting Paradise.
There was no fourth Rose Ceremony, as Harrison jumped right into the Fantasy Suite dates. But Dean supposedly realized he was in love with Kristina, so he dumped Danielle and the duo left Mexico separately before the round of overnight dates.
According to Carbone, the Kristina and Danielle showdown for Dean's heart is still playing out in the real world. Dean and Danielle have been together since filming ended and both live in Los Angeles. Kristina, on the other hand, currently resides in Kentucky.
Carbone has revealed the two beautiful brunettes are "at odds" over Dean and he is still "talking, seeing and in contact" with both Kristina and Danielle. So how does Dean get away with this scenario? He allegedly says he's not exclusive with either woman.
"So anyone thinking Dean has a chance to be the next Bachelor, you can forget it," Carbone quips.
Raven, Taylor, Lacey, Danielle, Kristina, Dominique, Jasmine, Christen, Jaimi, and Sarah all initially competed for Nick Viall's heart on The Bachelor's 21st edition earlier this year.
Robby, Derek, and Daniel first appeared on JoJo's season of The Bachelorette last year. Daniel also dated multiple ladies on Bachelor in Paradise 3 in 2016.
Dean, Diggy, Adam, and Jonathan were all bachelors on Rachel Lindsay's currently-airing season of The Bachelorette. In fact, they were all recently featured on The Men Tell All.
Amanda became famous on Ben Higgins' season of The Bachelor in 2016 and then got engaged to Josh Murray on Bachelor in Paradise last year. Amanda, a single mom of two young daughters, and Josh split in December.
