'Bachelor in Paradise' spoilers: Finale details and relationship updates on all Season 4's couples!!
By Elizabeth Kwiatkowski, 09/11/2017
Bachelor in Paradise spoilers reveal how the fourth season ended for all of the couples, bachelors and bachelorettes remaining on the show -- as well as updates on the relationships that thrived in the real world after the show.
[Spoiler Warning: Please stop reading immediately if you're not interested in learning romantic details before the finale actually airs on ABC tonight!].
Bachelor in Paradise's fourth-season finale is only hours away, as it airs September 11 at 8PM ET/PT.
This roller-coaster of a season flew by, and fans will soon learn whether their favorite bachelors and bachelorettes are single, dating or happily engaged.
But until then, Reality Steve spoiler blogger Steve Carbone claims to know all the details.
The finale will allegedly begin with Bachelor in Paradise host Chris Harrison announcing to the remaining cast members that Fantasy Suites are ahead and they must choose between leaving Mexico -- alone or with someone -- or taking advantage of a sexy, overnight date.
Chris asks the cast to only accept a Fantasy Suite date if there is real potential for love outside of Playa Escondida resort.
It's too bad because Jasmine and Jonathan were just starting to hit it off, and Jack and Christen seemed to have a good thing going. Jack had even turned down a double date with twins Emily Ferguson and Haley Ferguson to get to know Christen better.
And Amanda and Robby's relationship was finally getting stronger and deeper.
Diggy had two women to choose between Dominique and Jaimi, and Dean and Danielle finally got some time alone without Kristina Schulman in the picture.
A big surprise in the episode, according to Carbone, is that Dean realizes he's in love with Kristina and dumps Danielle before the Fantasy Suite. Danielle thought her romance with Dean was finally getting serious, but the bachelor apparently never got over his feelings for Kristina, whom he said on the show he had a stronger connection with.
It's probably safe to say Danielle leaves Paradise disappointed and pissed off.
Before the "live" in-studio portion of the finale begins, the show allegedly concludes with the three couples who survived Paradise talking about their experiences in the Fantasy Suite the morning after.
Bachelor in Paradise's in-studio finale -- which 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."
Many of the cast members will be shown sitting on the stage while Chris welcomes one or more bachelors or bachelorettes to sit in the hot seat throughout the broadcast. Chris will discuss their show experiences and their current post-filming relationships.
Carbone says the finale is formatted differently from what Bachelor Nation has seen before.
"When the show began, the ones already out there were Christen, [Alexis Waters], Jasmine, Jack, Diggy, Dominique, Jaimi, [Danielle Maltby], Haley and Emily Ferguson, Dean, Kristina, and DLo. [Bartender Wells Adams] was there as well, but he was in the audience," Carbone teases.
The biggest and most memorable part of the in-studio finale is when Derek gets down on one knee and proposes marriage to Taylor! The couple is happily engaged.
Fans were probably hoping for this result because Taylor and Derek were the most stable relationship in Paradise since filming commenced. The pair never left each other's side, and viewers watched them fall deeper in love every single week.
Relationships for Diggy and Jack apparently did not work out after the show. Diggy is not romantically involved with either Dominique or Jaimi -- although Carbone says they're all friends now with no hard feelings -- and Jack and Christen never advanced their romance.
However, Jack hints on the finale he's currently dating someone from Dallas, TX, who is not a member of Bachelor Nation.
Although Dean starts the show onstage, he's also asked to sit in the hot seat. Carbone claims Dean apologizes for his behavior in Paradise and inability to choose between Danielle and Kristina. Dean takes all the blame and accepts responsibility for the messy situation, asking home viewers not to hate or criticize either girl involved in the love triangle.
Drama also allegedly ensues between Dean and Danielle.
"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."
Going into the finale taping, Kristina was allegedly under the impression that Dean and Danielle had nothing going on between them once filming wrapped; however, she ended up seeing pictures of the couple and realized he was talking to them both again.
Both women "let Dean have it pretty good" on the finale, says Carbone, and Dean feels terrible for how he acted.
"If Kristina wants to believe this guy is legit and into her, honestly, I feel bad for her. I get the sense he wants to keep her around and will continue to treat her the way he did on the show."
On September 11, Dean, Kristina and Danielle all appeared on The Ellen DeGeneres Show, and Kristina admitted she would give Dean another chance "only if [he] learns from his mistakes."
In an interview with Us Weekly that took place shortly after The Ellen appearance, Dean echoed those sentiments, revealing, "Kristina's great."
"You know, her and I had to sit down and talk to each other and hopefully there's a time that we can figure it out and see what happens from there," he added. "But we're just for now casually talking and seeing if there's anything there."
Lacey and Daniel make an appearance on the finale as well, and Lacey allegedly calls the bachelor out for blindsiding and fooling her into thinking he was really interested and invested in her.
Lacey tells the audience that once cameras stopped taping in Paradise, Daniel allegedly told her, "This was all for TV." Daniel attempts to explain himself to a hurt and angry Lacey, but Carbone says the bachelor didn't come across well at all and their exchange was "the most awkward of the night."
Robby and Amanda are welcomed onstage next, and Haley and Emily accuse Robby of cheating on the single mom of two young daughters. Carbone says Robby was caught making out with an unidentified girl at a Zac Brown Band concert in Colorado in July.
Robby insists during the finale that nothing of the sort happened, but Carbone claims that's a lie because a witness watched Robby make out with the girl at the concert for the pretty much the whole entire 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 revealed to Us on September 6 that she and Robby had split in the real world, although their relationship was genuine and they really tried to make things work after leaving Mexico.
"Robby and I are not together," Amanda told the magazine. "I'm not sure how Robby's handled the situation."
During the in-studio finale, Amanda touches upon how Robby allegedly changed once they returned home from Paradise.
"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," Carbone says.
Amanda told People that Robby asked her to be his girlfriend "full force" once they returned home to California.
"I was like, 'Okay, I'm not interested in dating anybody else'... [He was] saying that he wants a family and a future, and then we get off the show and all he wanted to do is party and not call me," Amanda explained.
"I think we just have different ideas of what a relationship is like. Like, certain things that just come naturally in a relationship, like checking in with that person, answering when I call. There were photos of him with another girl. It became too much for me."
Adam and Raven share their story next. While they hadn't met each other's parents by the time the reunion taped, Raven said her plan was to meet his family the upcoming [Labor Day] weekend.
Adam then receives a surprise when Raven's parents are brought out on the stage and he meets them for the first time, according to Carbone. Raven and Adam are still allegedly together and doing well, and Raven did end up meeting Adam's family over Labor Day weekend.
