Bachelor in Paradise spoilers reveal all the drama, love and details which will unfold on the two-hour finale of Season 4 set to air September 11 on ABC.
[Spoiler Warning: Please stop reading now if you don't wish to learn what happens on Bachelor in Paradise's finale ahead of time, including which couples are still together].
When Bachelor in Paradise airs its final episode next week, the broadcast will pick up where the September 5 broadcast had left off, with host Chris Harrison telling the remaining bachelors and bachelorettes that they must decide whether they want to enjoy an overnight Fantasy Suite date or head home -- either with each other or separately, according to Reality Steve spoiler blogger Steve Carbone.
Chris allegedly explains that the Fantasy Suite is a major step forward in a relationship and would represent a serious bond and desire to make things work in the real world. If a couple wasn't ready to make that type of commitment at this point in the Bachelor in Paradise process, Chris allegedly advised them to leave Playa Escondida in Mexico.
While Amanda and Robby's relationship progressed in the right direction on the show, it's not a surprise the pair skipped out on a Fantasy Suite considering Amanda made it clear from the start she didn't want to rush into anything this time around. Amanda chose to take her relationship slowly with Robby, both physically and emotionally.
Although Dean let Kristina Schulman go in order to pursue dating Danielle Lombard, Carbone says Dean realizes he's in love with Kristina and therefore dumps Danielle before Fantasy Suites. Danielle was optimistic about her romance with Dean in Paradise, but his indecisiveness apparently came back to bite her.
In addition, Carbone claims that Jack Stone and Christen Whitney leave Playa Escondida as individuals. This outcome may surprise fans since Jack actually turned down a date with twins Haley Ferguson and Emily Ferguson to get to know Christen better in the latest episode.
The remaining footage from the cast's time in Mexico allegedly concludes with the three solid couples talking about their experiences in the Fantasy Suites the morning after, before switching over to Chris Harrison in the show's Los Angeles studio set.
Bachelor in Paradise's in-studio finale, which was filmed on August 30, will be similar to the franchise's After the Final Rose format.
"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 recently told Entertainment Weekly.
"We're [going] 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."
Chris sits down with the Bachelor in Paradise 4 cast members to discuss their post-show experiences, and Carbone's spoilers reveal the current status of people's relationships as announced on the finale.
"It's formatted differently than what we've seen before," Carbone says of the in-studio segment.
"A lot of the cast is out on stage to begin, but then couples are brought up to the hot seat from backstage to talk about where they're at right now. When the show began, the ones already out there were Christen, [Alexis Waters], Jasmine, Jack, Diggy, Dominique, Jaimi, [Danielle Maltby], [Haley Ferguson and Emily Ferguson], Dean, Kristina, and DLo. [Wells Adams] was there as well, but he was in the audience."
Derek and Taylor get engaged during the finale, according to multiple reports.
Carbone had previously predicted in his blog Derek would pop the question at the end of the season because the former bachelor and Taylor were the most stable pair in Mexico. They also spent a lot of time together once filming wrapped.
Corinne Olympios and DeMario Jackson both appear on the finale and see each other face-to-face for the first time since their sex scandal made national headlines. When the pair finally communicate, they allegedly wish each other well and say everything is cool between them.
As for Diggy, he says he is no longer romantically involved with either Dominique or Jaimi, says Carbone, but they are all good friends with no hard feelings.
Christen is also allegedly not dating Jack post-show. Instead, Jack actually hints about dating someone from Dallas, TX, who's not a member of Bachelor Nation.
Dean has a moment in the hot seat, reveals Carbone, and apologizes for his behavior and attempt to juggle relationships with both Kristina and Danielle in Paradise. Dean takes full responsibility for the situation that unfolded and asks America not to hate or criticize either girl in the love triangle.
"DLo felt slighted and went after him and called him out for breaking up with her on the show, saying he was still in love with Kristina, but then that night in Mexico -- once they were both off the show -- he was with DLo in her room," Carbone claims. "[Danielle] also called him out for seeing her numerous times post-show."
Kristina was allegedly under the impression that Dean and Danielle had nothing going on between filming Paradise and the finale; however, she ended up seeing pictures of the couple and realized he was talking to them both again.
Both Kristina and Danielle "let Dean have it pretty good" on the finale, says Carbone.
"If Kristina wants to believe this guy is legit and into her, honestly, I feel bad for her," Carbone writes.
"I get the sense he wants to keep her around and will continue to treat her the way he did on the show. But of course, in his [recent] pictures with other Bachelor Nation people... they made it clear he was single. So your guess is as good as mine as to what's going on."
Lacey and Daniel make an appearance on the finale as well, and Lacey takes full advantage of a moment to call the bachelor out for blindsiding and fooling her into thinking he was really interested and invested in her.
Lacey allegedly tells the audience that once cameras stopped rolling in Paradise, Daniel told her, "This was all for TV." Daniel attempts to explain himself to a hurt and angry Lacey, but Carbone says the bachelor doesn't come across well at all and their exchange is "the most awkward of the night."
Robby and Amanda are welcomed onstage next, and the twins Haley and Emily accuse Robby of cheating on the single mom post-filming. Carbone says Robby was caught making out with an unidentified girl at a Zac Brown Band concert in Colorado.
Robby insists nothing happened during the finale, but Carbone claims that's a lie because a witness watched Robby make out with the girl at the concert for basically the whole show.
"I spoke to [the woman], she spoke with Amanda as well, and she has no reason to lie about what she saw. She even took pictures which she told me she sent to Amanda," Carbone reveals.
"Amanda told Robby onstage that she really appreciated him being so sweet to her out in Paradise, but when they got back home, she saw who the real Robby was and said he's not ready to be in a relationship. So no surprise there. Robby and Amanda are done."
Adam and Raven share their story next. While they hadn't met each other's parents by the time the reunion taped, Raven says her plan was to meet his family Labor Day weekend. (Raven did allegedly meet Adam's family this past weekend).
