By Elizabeth Kwiatkowski, 08/21/2017
Bachelor in Paradise spoilers reveal all the details viewers don't want to wait for -- including how the fourth season ended, and which couples made it until the final days of filming in Mexico.
[Spoiler Warning: Please stop reading immediately if you don't want to find out whether there were any engagements or love matches on Bachelor in Paradise].
Bachelor in Paradise's fourth season was pretty brief, as it filmed over the course of two weeks (interrupted) at Playa Escondida in Sayulita, Mexico, according to Reality Steve spoiler blogger Steve Carbone.
Following days of romantic dates and several Rose Ceremonies, Bachelor in Paradise host Chris Harrison allegedly addressed the remaining couples at the end of process and announced they must choose to go on an overnight Fantasy Suite date or go home.
Chris explained to the pairs that if they wanted to continue their journeys in Paradise, they must be willing to take their relationships to the next level by enjoying Fantasy Suite dates off-camera.
If a couple chose not to take advantage of an overnight date, the two individuals had to determine whether to leave together -- and cultivate a romance in the real world -- or leave Mexico separately, according to Carbone.
These three couples grew closer in infatuation or love, but there was no climactic conclusion toBachelor in Paradise's fourth season. There was no final Rose Ceremony, nor were there any engagements! The couples allegedly discussed their experiences the morning after the Fantasy Suites.
However, Chris recently revealed that relationships continued in the real world and so there will be a live finale for the first time in Paradise history similar to the format of The Bachelor and The Bachelorette: After the Final Rose special.
Chris also hinted there may be a marriage proposal on the live finale.
"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 to Entertainment Weekly.
"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 premiered August 14, although the show was initially scheduled to debut one week earlier.
The delay was a result of a temporary shutdown in production in June over a producer's allegation of misconduct stemming from 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 wrongdoing or sexual assault, Bachelor in Paradise resumed filming its fourth season in Mexico with the original cast members but without Corinne and DeMario.
Corinne and DeMario did not continue their quests to find love in Paradise, but Chris announced sit-down interviews will be conducted on Bachelor in Paradise's August 22 and August 29 episodes so that both cast members can share their side of the story.
Getting back to the spoilers, let's talk about the couples who decided to enjoy Fantasy Suites and leave the show together.
Raven was shown going on a jet-skiing date with Robby when several one-on-one dates were documented in the first few days of filming before production shutdown. When filming was suspended on June 5 before the first Rose Ceremony due to the Corinne and DeMario scandal, both Robby and Ben Zorn pursued Raven in the real world.
However, Raven wasn't really interested in either guy. When everyone returned to Mexico to begin taping on June 24, according to Carbone, Adam arrived at the resort in no time 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 allegedly 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.
So 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 got off to a very strong start, and viewers have already watched them spend a night together in Mexico. Carbone says they became known as the most stable relationship to come out of Paradise this season.
Carbone claims Derek will probably propose to Taylor on the live finale because they've been spending a lot of time together. 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, so that explains why Lacey was crazy about him. Lacey was shown venting to the cameras during the two-night premiere about how she wanted Daniel to arrive in Paradise because she wasn't interested in any of the other guys.
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.
Now, let's dive into the stories about the couples who opted to leave Paradise separately as individuals, foregoing their opportunities to enjoy Fantasy Suites.
Franchise favorite and single mom, Amanda Stanton, pursued love with JoJo Fletcher's runner-up, Robby Hayes, in Paradise, but Carbone claims they, too, decided to part ways towards the end of the process.
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 also chose to depart Mexico as singles shortly afterwards.
Out of those couples who didn't last all the way to the end on the show, Amanda and Robby apparently continued dating in the real world. Dean is also allegedly still involved with his love triangle.
Amanda and Robby hit it off after the halt in production, and they coupled up at the first Rose Ceremony in Paradise when Amanda chose to give Robby a rose, according to Carbone.
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 been spending a lot of time together in the real world. The pair, for example, was recently photographed walking hand-in-hand and wearing matching outfits during a stroll in West Hollywood, CA.
Both Amanda and Robby currently live in the Los Angeles area. They've been spotted on dinner dates and baseball games as well as Raven's birthday party.
"They are very affectionate towards each other," a source told E! News last month.
And last but not least, there is The Bachelorette Season 13 favorite, Dean.
Dean and Kristina became smitten with each other in Paradise right away, and Dean even visited Kristina in her hometown of Kentucky when production shut down. Although the cute couple has been shown having problems, Carbone says Kristina gave her rose to Dean at the first Rose Ceremony.
But things took a turn when Danielle arrived in Paradise and asked Dean out on a date. 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 Chris 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.
Carbone reveals 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.
