'Bachelor in Paradise' spoilers: Season finale details and relationship updates revealed!!
By Elizabeth Kwiatkowski, 09/11/2017
Bachelor in Paradise spoilers reveal all of the details of the show's fourth-season finale -- including the current status of all of the relationships that blossomed in Mexico.
[Spoiler Warning: Please stop reading now if you still want to be surprised by what unfolds on the Monday, September 11 finale of Bachelor in Paradise on ABC].
Bachelor in Paradise only has one episode remaining and, according to Reality Steve spoiler blogger Steve Carbone, it will begin with host Chris Harrison giving the bachelors and bachelorettes left at Playa Escondida an important choice to make.
Chris will ask the couples in Paradise to decide whether they want to enjoy an overnight Fantasy Suite date or go home -- either alone or with a potential love interest.
Chris allegedly positions the Fantasy Suites as a huge step forward in a relationship so the invitation should only be accepted if a couple is serious about pursuing a romantic relationship in the real world upon returning home.
And while Amanda Stanton and Robby Hayes' relationship appears to be getting stronger by the day on the show, they also choose to depart Mexico.
Fans probably assume Amanda made the decision because she has made an effort not to rush into anything with a man since her engaged to Josh Murray, whom she fell in love with on Season 3 of Paradise, just ended in December 2016 -- and reportedly ended badly for that matter.
Carbone claims, however, Dean realizes he's in love with Kristina in the finale and therefore shockingly dumps Danielle before the Fantasy Suite. Danielle put up with Dean's back and forth antics for a while, so it's probably safe to say she's pretty pissed off in the finale.
And then we have Jack Stone and Christen Whitney. Carbone says that despite their obvious bond in Paradise, they choose to leave Playa Escondida as individuals. The reason why the pair calls it quits on their romance is unclear and surprising considering Jack turned down a date with Haley Ferguson to get to know Christen better.
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."
Chris will be shown sitting down with many of the cast members and couples from Bachelor in Paradise 4 to discuss their post-show experiences and current status of relationships.
Carbone says the finale is formatted differently from what Bachelor Nation has seen before.
"A lot of the cast is out on stage to begin, but then couples are brought up to the hot seat from backstage to talk about where they're at right now," he explains.
According to Carbone, the big news of the finale is that Derek and Taylor get engaged! If any couple was going to get engaged after Paradise, it would be these two, because they met on Day 1 of filming and had the most stable and loving relationship on the show.
Corinne Olympios and DeMario Jackson also both appear on the finale, and it will mark the first time they've seen each other face-to-face since the summer's sex scandal that made national headlines for weeks. When the pair finally communicate, Corinne and DeMario allegedly wish each other well and say everything is amicable between them.
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.
"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."
But Dean has recently suggested he's single in his Instagram photos, so his relationship status is up in the air.
"Your guess is as good as mine as to what's going on," Carbone writes.
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 the twins Haley and Emily accuse Robby of cheating on the single mom. Carbone says Robby was caught making out with an unidentified girl at a Zac Brown Band concert in Colorado this summer.
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 whole 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 Weekly 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 Us, later adding that the bachelor allegedly partied too hard and was bad at answering her phone calls while they were dating. "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.
"Amanda told Robby onstage that she really appreciated him being so sweet to her out in Paradise, but 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.
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.
