Bachelor in Paradise spoilers have surfaced revealing the Season 8 couples who get together, which couples make it to the end or split up, and if anyone gets engaged at the season's Final Rose Ceremony.


[Bachelor in Paradise Spoiler Warning: This report spoils what's going to happen on Bachelor in Paradise and contains spoilers revealing which The Bachelor and The Bachelorette alums found love.]

Bachelor in Paradise just premiered its new season on September 27, and the show will continue to air on Monday and Tuesday nights on ABC.

On the show's debut episode, Serene Russell and Brandon Jones made an immediate connection, and they kissed during their very first conversation.

"I've been waiting for you to get here," Serene admitted to Brandon, who said he felt the same way.


After the pair kissed, Genevieve Parisi, watching from a close distance, told her girlfriends, "I bet that they're gonna get engaged."

And Andrew Spencer and Teddi Wright went on a date. The pair had been looking forward to meeting each other in Paradise, but the anticipation resulted in Andrew being a bundle of nerves and having trouble coming up with conversation.

Michael Allio also found a connection with Sierra Jackson.

Sierra told Michael that she was only interested in him, and Michael said she's an old soul, which was hard to find. Michael thought she was beautiful with glowing skin and has a toxic and contagious presence about her. He said he felt comfortable around Sierra, like they had known each other for years.

"As much as I want to jump in full force, I am guarded. But I can see a total future with her. I do, I can really see something," Michael shared in a confessional.

But there was already drama in Paradise just a day or two in. Romeo Alexander had two women fighting over him, Jill Chin and Kira Mengistu.

And Shanae Ankney had the other women from Clayton Echard's The Bachelor season nervous about how she was going to act and if she was going to steal a man from one of them.

Shanae made out with Jacob Rapini, but previews suggest he's not going to be the only guy she's interested in.

Bachelor in Paradise bartender Wells Adams teased of what's to come in an interview with Us Weekly, "It's got all the things that everyone loves about Paradise."

"There's a lot of crabs. There's a lot of crying," Wells said. "There's a lot of suitcases being dragged through the sand and then there's the things that everyone loves. There's the comedy, the makeout sessions, the Boom-Boom Room, [and] you know, the love at the end of it."

Wells joked about how some "weirdos" got together, couples whom he never anticipated or predicted would come together. And he also called Bachelor in Paradise's eighth season the show's "sexiest" yet.

"Everyone's in the best shape they've ever been in... and this season is the sexiest season that we've ever had. I think everyone's gonna be excited about that," Wells said.

Andrew previously told People how the show's eighth season was "life-changing" for him and "takes off at a high speed" that "doesn't stop."

And Serene recently teased how it's going to be the "most dramatic" season yet.

So what happens on Bachelor in Paradise's eighth season? Keep reading for all the Paradise spoilers, according to Reality Steve spoiler blogger Steve Carbone.


Bachelor in Paradise Season 8 was filmed earlier this year

Bachelor in Paradise host Jesse Palmer took to Instagram on June 9 and posted a photo of himself posing next to an "open" sign on a beach decorated with blankets, vases and lights.

"With the power vested in me, I now officially declare Paradise OPEN!!!" Jesse captioned the image, announcing that Bachelor in Paradise's eighth season had begun production.

Bachelor in Paradise reportedly wrapped filming during the week of June 30.

Bachelor in Paradise host Jesse Palmer has said Season 8 was "crazy"

"It's insane down here. It's absolutely crazy," Jesse told Us Weekly while the season was still filming.

"There's all these people. There is just so much chaos, so much drama, and never-before-seen things down here taking place in Paradise... And we've been switching things up. We've been changing things up and it's hard to keep track of it all, to be honest."

Jesse said the show was already "amazing" at that point, adding how he was "having so much fun."

"I always wondered as a fan of the show, 'How paradise-y was Paradise?' And I can tell you, it is so much fun. It really is paradise. This place is magic," Jesse gushed.

Three women went home at the first Rose Ceremony

At the first Rose Ceremony of Season 8, the men were able to hand out the roses.

Brandon Jones reportedly gave his Bachelor in Paradise rose to Serene Russell, Justin Glaze offered his rose to Genevieve Parisi, Romeo Alexander handed a rose to Jill Chin, and Michael Allio asked Sierra Jackson to accept his rose.

Jacob Rapini gave his rose to Lace Morris, Logan Palmer gave his rose to Shanae Ankney, Andrew Spencer offered his rose to Teddi Wright, Johnny DePhillipo handed a rose to Victoria Fuller, and Casey Woods gave his rose to Brittany Galvin.

The men's decisions at the Bachelor in Paradise Rose Ceremony resulted in Hailey Malles, Hunter Haag, and Kira Mengistu getting rejected and eliminated.

Romeo Alexander and Teddi Wright then also left unexpectedly

A day after the first Rose Ceremony taped, Kira returned to the Bachelor in Paradise beach and made a final pitch to be with Romeo. The couple left Paradise together.

Teddi also apparently didn't feel much of a connection with Andrew and so she self-eliminated.


Salley Carson made another brief appearance

Salley, who made a brief appearance on The Bachelor's 26th season starring Clayton Echard, joined Bachelor in Paradise's Season 8 cast after the first Rose Ceremony wrapped.

Salley decided to leave before receiving much screentime.

Carbone reported that producers "did her dirty and she wanted no part of being there anymore."

The bachelorettes sent bachelors home at the second Rose Ceremony

Rodney Mathews showed up on the beach after the Bachelor in Paradise season's first Rose Ceremony, along with Aaron Clancy and James Bonsall.

Rodney took Lace out on a date, and she gave him a rose at the second Rose Ceremony.

Genevieve gave her rose to Aaron at the second Rose Ceremony.

Serene gave her rose to Brandon, Shanae offered her Bachelor in Paradise rose to Logan, Victoria asked Johnny to accept her rose, Sierra gave her rose to Michael, Brittany gave her rose to Andrew, and Jill handed her rose to Jacob.

James and Justin were both eliminated.

Sierra Jackson and Peter Izzo also quit the show

After the second Rose Ceremony, Michael broke up with Sierra, who then quit the show and chose to go home.

And Peter, the memorable "pizzapreneur" from Michelle's season, chose to self-eliminate after taking Brittany out on a date.

Brittany apparently had more interest in Andrew.

Rachel Recchia shows up in Paradise

During The Bachelorette's Season 19 finale, a promo of Bachelor in Paradise's season featured Rachel Recchia making an appearance at the Paradise resort in Mexico.

"He is so great. He really is. I'm going to cry because I'm so happy!" Rachel gushes to her girlfriends.

When asked in what capacity she'll be a part of the show, Rachel told Variety in a recent interview, "They're going to tune in and find out... I definitely make an appearance on the beach. What happens? Everyone will just have to wait and see, but it’s definitely crazy down there."

However given the Bachelor in Paradise season was filmed after Rachel got engaged to Tino Franco at The Bachelorette Season 19's final Rose Ceremony in May but before Rachel and Tino subsequently split up in August, Rachel didn't go to Paradise looking to find love.

Rachel's Bachelor in Paradise appearance was then presumably just a guest appearance in which she hosted a date or visited her fellow former The Bachelor and The Bachelorette castmates.

The Bachelor in Paradise season features a shocking new twist

A trailer for Bachelor in Paradise shows host Jesse Palmer telling the cast "a shocking twist" was about to be unleashed and the women need to "go pack your bags."

After the women's unexpected and abrupt exit from the Bachelor in Paradise resort, the bachelorettes shouted over their hotel balcony, "F-ck you, Jesse Palmer!"

Before the third Rose Ceremony filmed, Bachelor in Paradise reportedly unleashed a new twist similar to the "Casa Amor" twist that was featured on the CBS seasons of Love Island.

The "Casa Amor"-like twist sends one gender of cast members over to a different villa where they meet a brand-new group of singles of the opposite sex, ultimately putting the bonds and romances of pre-existing couples to the test.

Paradise reportedly sent its bachelorettes to a new location in Mexico, where they were introduced to Tyler Norris, Alex Bordyukov, Rick Leach, Olumide "Olu" Onajide, and Adam Todd from The Bachelorette: Australia's sixth season.

Meanwhile, five new women were brought in to meet the Paradise guys, who remained at the season's original resort.

The five women who joined the show as part of the new twist were reportedly Sarah Hamrick, Kate Gallivan, Eliza Isichei, Jessenia Cruz, and Florence Moerenhout from Bachelor in Paradise: Australia's first two seasons.

The cast allegedly got "angry" about the twist

Bachelor in Paradise bartender Wells Adams told Us Weekly that production tried "some things this year" they hadn't in the past.

"From where I sat, I loved it. Now, the cast did not like it very much," Wells admitted to the magazine.

"You'll see a lot of cast members be kind of angry at some of the things we throw at [them] this year, but it's a fun show and, you know, I guess it's a testament to, like, how much ABC believes in the show."

Eliza Isichei ends up in a love triangle

Amid the "Casa Amor"-like twist, Justin was able to return to the beach -- it's unclear why he was allowed to -- and took interest in Eliza.

But Rodney Mathews also set his eyes on Eliza during the twist. He broke up with Lace for a shot at love with Eliza.

Eliza chose to give Rodney a rose and walk Justin out during the third Rose Ceremony.

Once she returned to Bachelor in Paradise's beach, however, Eliza told Rodney that she felt pressured to give him a rose. She therefore self-eliminates instead of pursuing a romance with Rodney.

The women handed out the roses again at the third Rose Ceremony

At the third Rose Ceremony of Bachelor in Paradise's eighth season, the women gave out the roses.

Olu and Rick were sent home after the "Casa Amor"-like twist because they failed to find connections.

Alex and Adam were also eliminated after the twist.

There was a lot of other drama on Bachelor in Paradise 8

Hayden Markowitz and twins Joey Young and Justin Young arrived either before or after the third Rose Ceremony, according to Carbone. Hayden reportedly didn't last long but the twins stuck around for a while.

Shanae Ankney, Florence, and Mara reportedly got caught up in a five-way love triangle with Joey and Justin, and Andrew and Jessenia got together at one point.

Kate Gallivan reportedly emerged as a villain during the Bachelor in Paradise season.

Jacob Rapini left Jill Chin for Kate, which sent Jill home, but then Kate began dating Logan Palmer.

Sarah Hamrick reportedly left the beach because her grandmother died, not for a lack of romantic options.

The last three women who entered Paradise were Mara Agreat, Ency Abedin, and Lyndsey Windham, all from Clayton's The Bachelor season.

"When Lyndsey came on the beach, there weren't many options, so she asked Logan, [and] Kate told him she didn't want him going on a date so Lyndsey just went home," Carbone wrote in his June 28 blog post.

Six couples had been established when the season began wrapping up

Carbone tweeted on July 6, "(SPOILERS) Here are your BIP final couple results. Finally got these last night."

The established couples at the end of the season included Aaron Clancy and Genevieve Parisi, Michael Allio and Danielle Maltby, and Brandon Jones and Serene Russell.

The rest of the strong Paradise couples were Logan Palmer and Kate Gallivan, Tyler Norris and Brittany Galvin, and Johnny DePhillipo and Victoria Fuller.

Aaron Clancy and Genevieve Parisi split up and left Paradise alone, as did Logan Palmer and Kate Gallivan

While Aaron and Genevieve were going strong for most of the Bachelor in Paradise season, they broke up and decided a relationship wouldn't work in the real world.

Logan and Kate's romance also faltered, and the pair split up before Bachelor in Paradise's Final Rose Ceremony.

Michael Allio and Danielle Maltby left the show dating, and so did Tyler Norris and Brittany Galvin

Michael and Danielle made a love connection and left Bachelor in Paradise as a couple.

Tyler and Brittany also fell hard for each other, and so they decided to leave the Paradise resort together and keep dating.

The Bachelor in Paradise season ended with multiple engagements

Carbone reported back in late June, "The only couple I'm almost positive is gonna get engaged is Brandon and Serene. In fact, I'd be surprised if they didn't. Outside of that, anyone's fair game to break up."

Brandon Jones did propose marriage at the Final Rose Ceremony to Serene Russell, who left Bachelor in Paradise with a diamond on her finger.

And Johnny DePhillipo wasn't ready to get engaged to Gabby Windey on The Bachelorette, but he popped the question to Victoria Fuller and the couple got engaged!

The final couples will have to keep their relationships a secret for over four months considering Bachelor in Paradise wrapped filming earlier this summer and is just nearing its premiere.

Tyler Norris and Brittany Galvin split up after returning home

Although Tyler and Brittany decided to leave Paradise together and continue dating in the real world, things didn't end up working out for them.

According to Carbone, Tyler and Brittany broke up at some point over the summer.

"[They] left as a couple, but have since broken up," he wrote in blog post on September 27.
