Bachelor in Paradise spoilers for the two Season 4 episodes airing next week have been released by ABC.
[Spoiler Warning: Although ABC's descriptions below do not reveal identities of the cast members, based on previous episodes and online Bachelor in Paradisespoilers, it's not difficult to determine which bachelors and bachelorettes are being referred to -- so if you would like to know who ABC is likely referring to, please highlight the whitespace in parentheses].
Bachelor in Paradise's live finale is only two weeks away, but there is a whole lot of drama that will go down on next week's serving of Season 4 episodes.
On Monday night's two-hour Bachelor in Paradiseepisode, the network teases that "one unhappy guy in particular is running out of time, as the two balling babes he's been juggling are running out of patience."
When the bachelor (DEAN) receives "a cold shoulder" at breakfast from one woman (KRISTINA) involved in his love triangle, he decides to check in with her.
However, that woman was sitting poolside the previous night when things heated up between the bachelor and her opponent (DANIELLE) in the pool.
"Although he asks for her patience, she has none left to give, at least not for this kind of disrespectful treatment," ABC says of the offended bachelorette (KRISTINA).
While fans might assume the "hurting honey" would be more than willing to throw herself into a date with someone else, that turns out to not be the case.
A new arrival (BLAKE E.) will then talk to every woman at Playa Escondida to determine whom he should ask on his date, and the woman who accepts the invitation (CHRISTEN) only chooses to do so in order to "escape the drama she has created for herself back at the resort by sharing her affections with two different men."
"A newer, hotter arrival (FRED) has an easier time getting a date when the first woman (DOMINIQUE) he asks says yes, even though her last date thought that the two of them were a thing," ABC reveals.
"On their double date -- the 'most adventurous, adrenaline-filled date in Bachelor history' -- everyone has an amazing time speed-boating and zip-lining, except for 'Raccoon Eyes,' who gets seasick, almost loses her contact lenses and has a disaster with runny mascara."
Moving on to a more romantic date, the network says an "eager suitor" (ROBBY) takes a "cautious single mom" (AMANDA) to a town fair, where he'll tell the bachelorette he's falling in love with her.
"He sees a glorious future together and, as they make out under a night sky lit by fireworks, hopes that she is beginning to see it too," the network says.
At the third Rose Ceremony of the season, the women will have the power again in handing out roses.
The writing should be on the wall for "Raccoon Eyes'" date at this point, says ABC, but it is another single guy (BEN Z.) who "recognizes his diminishing chances of finding love in the waning days of Paradise," and so he chooses to leave the resort on his own accord.
However, someone special (BEN'S DOG!) will be waiting at home for the man who quits the series.
Meanwhile, one "mixed up dude" (DEAN) will still be struggling to make a decision between two women.
"When his pool buddy (DANIELLE) tells him that she would walk if he accepted a rose from her competitor (KRISTINA), he decides that it's time to end things with one of the bachelorettes (KRISTINA), who doesn't receive the news very well," according to the network.
"Seeking sympathy from a friend, who instead tells her the truth that she doesn't want to hear, the dumped dame (KRISTINA) explodes and storms off to the bar, where everybody's new favorite bartender (WELLS) asks her, 'Why are you fighting for someone who's not fighting for you?' After having the sense slapped into her, she now knows what she must do."
ABC says that tension will come to a head when it's time to hand out the roses.
"[Expect] one of the most shocking and dramatic conclusions in show history" to unfold, the network teases.
And then, on Tuesday night's one-hour Bachelor in Paradise episode, the pairings have become pretty rock solid, so newcomers will have a tough time finding a match -- or even an interested date.
"But when the new arrival (JAIME) doubles her odds by liking both boys and girls, all bets are off. She does end up choosing a date of the opposite sex (DIGGY), but the woman in his life no longer feels like the bet she's made on love is a safe one. And she may not be the only woman in danger," ABC says.
"Hopeful heartbreakers" (HALEY AND EMILY) then "return in Paradise" with their eyes set "unapologetically" on men who are pretty much committed to certain bachelorettes already.
"This new bachelorette wants one man, who, it turns out, is on the verge of telling his emotionally intelligent partner that he is falling in love with her," ABC teases.
"So, instead, the bummed-out babe takes pity on a dating virgin (JACK), who is so excited to be asked out on his first date in Paradise that he accepts, even though he's been getting cozy with an actual never-had-sex-before virgin (CHRISTEN)."
A more assertive lady then goes after a man (DEAN) who just dumped one girlfriend to focus on his other love interest.
"Although he says no, the shocked bachelorette senses that he'd like to say yes, so she approaches the girlfriend for permission. But when the testing tootsie leaves the decision up to the proven unreliable rascal, the persistent princess asks again, and is turned down again, leaving her no choice but to invite the only available man (TICKLE MONSTER) left in Paradise," says the network.
"When one of the double-daters bails out (JACK) so that he can spend the little time remaining with the woman he's serious about, two women (EMILY AND HALEY) have had enough and storm out of Paradise, cursing the close-knit couples who caused their downfall."
Bachelor in Paradise host Chris Harrison will then pay the remaining affectionate couples a visit and lay a big surprise on them -- that it will be their last day in Paradise.
"There's no telling who will find love this season, just like [Jade Roper] and [Tanner Tolbert] did and their subsequent 2016 wedding," ABC says.
