The Bachelor in Paradise episode began with the start of the first Rose Ceremony in Paradise in which the nine men would be handing out the roses and three lovely women out of the 12 would be going home.
Demi Burnett pointed out Annaliese had put all of her eggs into Chris Bukowski's basket but he was trying to determine whether to go with her as the safe choice or Kristina Schulman as the risky, maybe more exciting choice.
Meanwhile, Hannah had both Dylan and Blake interested in her, and she didn't know what to do because she could see potential in both relationships.
Dylan offered his rose to Hannah and she accepted, and Blake -- who admitted Hannah being scooped up sucked -- gave a rose to Tayshia Adams. Tayshia said she accepted Blake's rose but there was no way she would trust him and he had to apologize to every woman he hurt.
And finally, Annaliese was expecting her love story to unfold, but Chris decided to give his rose to Kristina.
"Wow," Annaliese said in shock. "I was blindsided for the second time in Paradise and did not leave with what I was coming for. I'm just so over it."
"I'm said... Maybe if I hooked up with Blake I would have still been here," Bibiana said.
"I'm going to take a hot chick on a date and somebody's going to be calling me 'Daddy' at the end of this," Jordan told the cameras, adding that the salt spray in his hair smelled like tangerines.
Katie said Jordan was "the grenade" of Paradise, coming in to blow everything up. Hannah thought Jordan was really cute, and he pulled her aside for a chat first because she was even cuter than he had imagined.
Hannah admitted to Jordan she had hit it off with Dylan and Blake had also made it clear he wanted to pursue her. But Jordan thought their conversation went "phenomenal" and they both had modeling in common.
Jordan then spoke with Nicole, but Clay wasn't ready because he called their romance "real" and sincere. Jordan learned from Nicole and Kristina that Blake was juggling multiple women, and so he wasn't okay with that.
"Blake one-nighted both of these girls, [Kristina and Caelynn], like they were milk cartons at lunch! You can't do that buddy!" Jordan joked to the cameras.
"Blake's out here making moves and making love to half the cast out here! He's just walking all over, trying to mark his territory everywhere. He's putting his spoon in all the pudding."
Jordan therefore wanted to ask Hannah out and didn't care if he had to step on Blake's toes, although Dylan and Hannah seemed to be the most established couple in Paradise.
Jordan told Hannah that he'd have the most fun with her on a date and they could go on an adventure, so she accepted his invitation. Tayshia noted it wasn't a surprise Hannah said "yes" because she was used to having a lot of attention on her.
"I don't trust her," Tayshia told the cameras.
The ladies felt bad for Dylan in Paradise because they thought he was such a sweet guy and Hannah was kind of walking all over him.
However, after taking a few minutes to think, Hannah admitted she couldn't go on the date with him because she didn't want to be "all over the place" in Paradise and date three people.
Hannah told Jordan that she wanted to pursue her connection with Dylan because they had something great and she also needed to figure out where she really stood with Blake.
Jordan respected Hannah's choice to back out of the date and be honest with him about her feelings, but he wished she wasn't so concerned with what others thought about her and would just have some fun.
Jordan then told the cameras it was clear Blake was the real problem in Paradise. Jordan therefore sat down with Blake and told him to hammer out his issues because multiple women were hung up on him.
The self-declared "mayor" of Paradise then said in a confessional, "There's such a thing as putting your foot in your mouth and there's such a thing as just being a dumbass, and Blake, yeah, is a dumbass right now."
Hannah told Dylan she wanted to use her time in Paradise to just hang out with him, and so he said he was "really happy." Sydney realized Dylan was "laser focused on Hannah" but there "were red flags" he wasn't seeing with her.
After being turned down by Hannah, Jordan asked Nicole out, admitting she was his second choice but could still be fun on a date. Nicole accepted Jordan's date invitation and laughed about how she didn't know what was going on.
Nicole hoped Clay would realize she's "a hot commodity." She felt like the Bachelorette in Paradise and didn't mind playing a little "hard to get." Clay, however, was confident in their connection and what they had.
"Obviously it sucks. It's tough. I'm starting to develop real feelings for this woman. Real feelings. I don't think I've had feelings evolve this fast ever, and now I'm in a situation where I could end up heartbroken," Clay vented to the cameras.
For their date, Nicole and Jordan went ziplining and she anticipated he would be hilarious.
Nicole was terrified to zipline and called it her "biggest fear," but she was ready to face it and appreciated how encouraging and supportive Jordan was during their adventure.
Nicole said Jordan -- despite his antics and tendency to put on a show -- surprised her because he turned out to be a normal, nice guy, and the pair engaged in good conversation.
Meanwhile, Blake called Paradise "brutal" because he watched Hannah and Dylan grow their connection from a distance.
Tayshia was angry because Blake had led her to believe he was really interested in pursuing her at the start of the show, and Demi pointed out Blake was being "selfish" and his behavior was "calculative" and manipulative.
"I don't think he deserves the grace he's been given. He's in a love pentagon," Demi told Tayshia and Caelynn.
As for Cam, he was completely invested in Caelynn, whom he apparently had hoped would star on The Bachelorette's fifteenth season.
Cam said it was "surreal" he could be proposing to Caelynn in a short amount of time, and then he read her a letter in which he promised to give her all of him and defend and protect her.
Cam said Caelynn deserved the world and he wanted to be the man to give her "the moon and the universe."
But Hannah said Cam's attempt to woo Caelynn seemed to be a little too much for her.
Suddenly, Mike Johnson arrived in Paradise. He revealed to Chris that he needed some time to get over his relationship with Hannah Brown on The Bachelorette but he was never going to quit or give up on love.
Onyeka had been most excited to meet Mike and said he looked even more attractive in person than he did on television, but all of the girls in Paradise had their eyes on him, including Kristina and Tayshia, who said Mike had "swag."
Caelynn also called Mike "hot" and noticed the guys started sweating when the bachelor had arrived. Demi agreed Mike was "a stud" and a tall glass of water.
Cam wasn't happy to see Mike because he thought Mike was the reason why he got sent home on The Bachelorette. He was a little apprehensive and nervous history might repeat itself.
"If Mike selects Caelynn for the one-on-one date, there is a very good chance he could sabotage my character like he did [before]," Cam told the cameras, before revealing to several guys in Paradise Mike had accused him of wanting "a pity rose" from Hannah B.
When Mike pulled Caelynn aside, she insisted her heart was open. But Onyeka flat out told Mike that she was interested in him because she thought he had good intentions.
Onyeka said she felt immediate chemistry with Mike, but he ended up asking Caelynn out on a date. Onyeka was disappointed because Caelynn was her close friend, and she vented about how it was so difficult to find love.
"I was born to be a husband and I was born to be a father, and all I can think about is two phone calls -- calling my future fiancee's parents to get their blessing and calling my parents to say, 'I'm engaged,' and it's going to happen," Cam cried to the cameras.
"I just want it here... I want a wife so bad, I want a family so bad. And if this is stripped away from me for a second time, I'll be devastated."
When Nicole returned from her date with Jordan, she assured Clay there was "no comparison" between him and Jordan. Clay realized Nicole was exactly who he wanted, and when she was gone, he really missed hanging out with her.
As a result, Clay and Nicole picked up right where they had left off, and he determined he wanted to be exclusive with her going forward.
"That's a testament to Paradise can work and this process is special," Tayshia said of Nicole and Clay's unexpected romance.
Meanwhile, Cam admitted to Onyeka he felt "threatened" by Mike, who was very charismatic.
Mike and Caelynn then went on a dinner date and she explained Paradise had been very difficult for her prior to his entrance. Caelynn said it was hard to be vulnerable but she could tell Mike was respectful and had an awareness about himself.
Mike toasted to his possible last first-date ever on his date with Caelynn, and she was impressed and felt really happy and giddy. He really liked Caelynn and admitted he was "flabbergasted" in her presence, and Caelynn acknowledged Mike had exceeded all of her expectations.
"For the first time in a very long time, Caelynn has me wondering about our future," Mike said in a confessional.
Mike and Caelynn ended their date with a dance and a kiss.
Back on the beach, Wills noted it was almost weird how comfortable Demi and Derek seemed together, like they were already boyfriend and girlfriend.
Wills shared he was interested in Katie because she was "amazingly beautiful," and so he planned a little special date for her.
Wills admitted he was shy, but he made his intentions known to Katie, who apparently felt overlooked. He thought it was refreshing how she was unapologetically herself.
Katie immediately broke down into tears and told Wills that he was saying all of the right things but she needed to focus on one man at a time and couldn't envision things happening between them at that point.
"I don't feel it," Katie noted. "I feel like a monster."
Dylan overheard Katie's conversation with Hannah G. and said she had lost her mind that night.
Chris didn't like seeing Kate so upset, and so he pulled her aside to talk. Katie had a difficult time telling Wills that she didn't like him, and Chris was there to listen to her.
Chris told Katie he respected her and her emotions, and in turn, Katie thought he rocked.
"This is where I want to be. I want to be here and I want to be here with you. My favorite part of the day is always talking to you," Chris told Katie.
"Our conversations are effortless and it's easy for me to be open with you. I'm not here to waste my time or anyone's time. I came here to do this for a reason, to invest my time in [someone] fully, and right now, I feel like that's with you. I want it to be with you."
Chris made Katie feel secure and calm, and she apparently felt connected with him. Katie said she could see herself falling for Chris if things kept progressing in a positive direction.
Meanwhile, Blake had been watching Dylan and Hannah G. together all day, but he planned something special for her and asked to spend some time with her.
Demi said it was obvious Dylan was a better match for Hannah G. and all she was doing was building Blake's ego. Dylan felt disrespected and called Blake "a shady dude," but Hannah G. clearly still had ties to Blake.
Blake told Hannah G. that he was going to fight for her, but she didn't think his actions and words matched. Hannah G. didn't want to get her heart broken again.
"I think you're making these excuses because in your gut, you can feel this [between us]," Blake told Hannah G., as Dylan watched the couple from a distance.
"I don't want a relationship down here just to be in a relationship. I'm all in. I wouldn't be saying the things I'm saying unless I see a relationship past Paradise."
Blake then asked Hannah G. to dance with him on the beach, and both Tayshia and Kristina could attest to the fact dancing was Blake's "move" and they remembered it well.
Hannah G. and Blake then kissed after their dance, and the girls didn't know what Hannah was doing because Dylan was sitting nearby taking it all in.
"That's so disrespectful to just make out right in front of me, right? It's crazy," Dylan told the cameras. "I need to talk to her. If she's genuinely focused on being with Blake, that's something I need to know."
Dylan then stole Hannah G. away from Blake in search of some answers.
Blake told Dylan he had waited all day and was respectful, but Dylan said he was entirely focused on Hannah G.
"I am too, man," Blake said.
But Dylan pointed out Blake had actually been focused on "every girl here."
"Don't do that, man," Blake noted. "I've expressed to her that I'm here for her and I'm pursuing her... She needs time to make a decision on her own, and you can't swarm her and make a decision for her."
Dylan said he wasn't trying to do that, and then Blake argued Dylan was making Hannah G. feel uncomfortable.
Dylan asked Hannah G. to speak for just five minutes, but she refused. Dylan therefore walked away and vented how Blake was "a psycho."
Kristina said it "spoke volumes" Hannah decided to stay with Blake.
"I thought Hannah G. was kind of innocent in all of this, but I feel as though she's had her hand in a lot of the drama. She's a freakin' player, just like Blake," Tayshia said in a confessional.
Sydney agreed Hannah G. wasn't innocent and she had placed herself right in the middle of all the drama.
Dylan was upset, saying Hannah G.'s behavior didn't match up with what she had been telling him. Dylan wondered if Hannah G. had been upfront with him the whole time or was messing with him.
"It's the ultimate slap in the face," Dylan said. "I'm just confused by it. What am I not seeing? What am I not getting? What am I not understanding? Like, did they date before this or something?"
The episode concluded with Hannah G. and Blake making out.
