[Bachelor in Paradise Spoilers Warning: This article reveals the current status of Tia and Colton's relationship, so if you're not interested in finding out what happened to the couple on Season 5 of Bachelor in Paradise, please stop reading now].
Bachelor in Paradise's fifth season just featured Tia and Colton agreeing to commit to each other and be involved in an exclusive relationship. So will this official boyfriend and girlfriend couple last? Do you they break up or maybe even get engaged in Mexico?
According to Reality Steve spoiler blogger Steve Carbone, fans can expect a shocking ending for Tia and Colton in Paradise.
Tia and Colton dated briefly in January before Arie Luyendyk Jr.'s season of The Bachelor began airing, but they decided to nip their romance in the bud due to long distance and bad timing given Colton had just been cast on The Bachelorette -- probably under the assumption Tia was going to become the show's next star.
Tia and Colton got to spend an amazing weekend together, but their relationship never had time to advance emotionally, and the couple never did anything more than kiss.
It's safe to say Tia and Colton had unfinished business, and that dynamic was portrayed on Becca Kufrin's season of The Bachelorette, which just aired its finale earlier this month.
After Tia showed up on Becca's Week 3 group date and gave both Colton and Becca her blessing to pursue a romance, Colton slowly fell in love with Becca.
But Colton and Becca's relationship came to a halt when Tia approached Becca following Colton's hometown date to inform her friend she still had feelings for the former professional football player and the idea of them ending up together made her sick to her stomach.
Colton was therefore sent home from The Bachelorette in fourth place -- although Becca insisted she would've made the same decision had Tia never expressed those feelings -- and then the charity founder and Tia reunited in Mexico forBachelor in Paradise's fifth season.
Colton and Tia went on a date early on in Bachelor in Paradise's season, but Colton was still seeking closure from Becca, and he didn't feel ready to dive into another relationship whole-heartedly. Colton therefore asked Tia to keep her options open and not put any pressure on him to figure things out.

However, Becca paid her girlfriends a visit in Mexico and was able to help Colton move past his pain and open his heart again.
Once Colton determined he was capable of falling in love again, he told Tia they should give their connection an honest chance. The pair decided to commit to each other and then became official "girlfriend and boyfriend" during a double date with Raven Gates and Adam Gottschalk.
Tia went as far as to say she could see herself getting engaged to Colton at the end of Bachelor in Paradise, because they obviously cared for each other deeply.
So did their romance progress to that level or did Tia and Colton's relationship end in heartbreak?
According to Carbone, Tia and Colton's relationship did not make it and they decided to call it quits and break up while filming Bachelor in Paradise.
"I guess Colton didn't see themselves lasting in the real world so they broke up and both went home," Carbone wrote in his July spoilers.
Colton and the Arkansas-based physical therapist reportedly didn't even make it to the season's final Rose Ceremony together.
"Here's the thing: I really, really like Colton. I think he's wonderful, and meeting him in person, he's all gorgeousness. And he, like, exudes being a good person," Raven explained during a recent appearance on The Morning Toast.
"But them two [together], I know Tia well enough, they don't mesh. Like, I get it. It's a great thought for them to be together, but it's not what she needs and not what he needs, but I love them both."
Prior to dating Tia and Becca, Colton, a self-proclaimed virgin, had been in only serious relationship. Becca even worried Colton lacked experience in dating and in love, especially considering she had already been engaged once before.
Raven therefore added she'd like to see Colton with someone who is equally as pure of heart.
It remains to be seen why exactly Colton got cold feet or decided Tia wasn't the right match for him, but their breakup is expected to air soon on Bachelor in Paradise, which currently airs on Monday and Tuesday nights at 8PM ET/PT on ABC.
In fact, based on ABC's press release for Bachelor in Paradise's August 27 episode, it appears it may be happening on the show's very next episode!
While the press release doesn't identify the bachelor by name, the ABC release does reveal a bachelor will apparently quit Paradise during Monday night's Bachelor in Paradisebroadcast.
"When one bachelor leaves Paradise early, the distraught woman he leaves behind is desperate to find another man who would want all the love that she has to offer," the network stated in the release.
