[Bachelor in Paradise Spoiler Warning: This article reveals details of Bachelor in Paradise's fifth season, so please stop reading now if you want to be surprised by Tia and Colton's dating experiences].

Tia and Colton dated briefly before Arie Luyendyk Jr.'s season of The Bachelor began airing earlier this year, but they called it quits after spending a weekend together due to bad timing.

Colton had just been cast on The Bachelorette at the time -- possibly under the assumption Tia was going to be the show's star -- and neither individual was ready to commit to a long-distance romance.

However, the Arkansas-based beauty revealed to her good friend Becca Kufrin on Monday night's The Bachelorette episode that she still had feelings for Colton from Colorado, seemingly prompting Becca's decision to send him home after hometown dates.

Shortly after Becca eliminated the 26-year-old former professional football player, Bachelor in Paradise announced Colton would be looking for love again in Mexico this summer.

In a video clip posted on Twitter, Tia was shown expressing her feelings for Colton, and the franchise captioned the video, "Welcome to Paradise, Colton! Someone's waiting for you there."

Well, according to Reality Steve spoiler blogger Steve Carbone, the couple did actually date in Paradise.

Carbone initially leaked Colton's Bachelor in Paradise participation last month by revealing he was spotted on a date with Tia in Puerto Vallarta, Mexico, while cameras were rolling.

The couple appeared cuddly with each other during a game of musical chairs, and they allegedly enjoyed a double date with Tia's friend Raven Gates and her boyfriend of one year, Adam Gottschalk.

But in a July 17 post, Carbone revealed Tia and Colton's relationship did not make it and they decided to call it quits and break up while 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 blog.

Colton and Tia 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 worried Colton lacked experience in dating when she's already been engaged once before, and Raven believes Colton needs a woman who is completely pure of heart.
