Bachelor in Paradise spoilers reveal which couples split over the course of the fourth season's production, who made it all the way to the end of filming, current relationship updates, and much more.
[Spoiler Warning: Please stop reading now if you want to watch Bachelor in Paradise unfold on TV without knowledge of what happens next].
Bachelor in Paradise's third week of its broadcast schedule is this week, and there's much more drama, love and heartbreak to come.
According to Reality Steve spoiler blogger Steve Carbone, the Bachelor in Paradise journey ended with host Chris Harrison asking each remaining couple at the end of the two-week filming period whether they'd like to enjoy an overnight Fantasy Suite date or leave Mexico -- either separately or together.
The spotlight was on the couples who wanted to take their relationships to the next level.
So let's dive in to the love stories that unfolded for each of the three alleged happy couples that left Paradise still dating, starting with Raven and Adam.
Raven was a hot commodity in Paradise from the start, with Adam, Robby Hayes and Ben Zorn going after her. She gave her first rose of the season to Adam, but then the romance got flipped upside-down when Raven's friend Sarah Vendal arrived at Playa Escondida and asked Adam out.
During the two-week suspension of filming because of the DeMario Jackson and Corinne Olympios scandal, Raven said she and Sarah had spent a night with Adam in Dallas, and Raven woke up to find her friend and Adam cuddling the next morning. That's why Sarah wanted to pursue Adam in Paradise.
Carbone, however, claims that Adam chose Raven and gave her a rose at the second Rose Ceremony. From that point on, Raven and Adam were allegedly inseparable, and they left the show together after their Fantasy Suite date.
Raven and Adam are still seeing each other despite living in different states, according to Carbone. Ironically, Sarah currently resides in Dallas, TX, where Adam lives.
Now for Taylor and Derek.
Taylor and Derek are the most stable couple at this point in the Bachelor in Paradise season, and they seem to be falling in love with each other. Viewers have already seen them spend at least one night together, and they gave each other roses at every opportunity.
Carbone claims Derek will probably propose to Taylor on the live finale because they've been spending a lot of time together in recent weeks.
As for Daniel and Lacey, Danielle has yet to arrive in Paradise as the season unfolds. However, he's expected to show up on either the August 28 or 29 episode.
Carbone says Daniel and Lacey hooked up before Bachelor in Paradise even began taping this summer, which explains why Lacey seemed head over heels for Daniel when he wasn't even in the picture yet. Carbone says Lacey actually appeared on the show strictly for Daniel.
Daniel's arrival therefore came at the perfect time for Lacey because Kenneth "Diggy" Moreland had just dumped her shortly beforehand for newcomer Dominique Alexis, which resulted in a little bit of a meltdown for Lacey.
Daniel allegedly gave Lacey a rose at the season's second Rose Ceremony.
According to Carbone, Lacey and Daniel continued dating after Season 4 wrapped but Daniel is so into himself and becoming a TV star that Lacey is way more into him than he is into her.
"They're currently 'dating,' but that doesn't mean much in this franchise," Carbone explains.
Fan-favorite Amanda Stanton and Robby Hayes did not enjoy a Fantasy Suite together and make it to the very end of the show, but their romance is still blossoming in the real world.
Amanda and Robby slowly grew to like each other in Paradise despite Robby's friendship with Josh Murray, her ex-fiance from back home.
Amanda and Robby hit it off in Mexico just before the first Rose Ceremony, when she rejected a kiss from him but decided to give him a rose in order to get to know him better.
After Robby gave his rose to Amanda at the second Rose Ceremony, the couple got to go on a real date in Paradise, when sparks flew, according to Carbone.
Amanda gave Robby her rose at the third Rose Ceremony, but then the pair decided to leave before the Fantasy Suite, probably because Amanda wasn't trying to rush their relationship after what happened last year.
Amanda and Robby's relationship appears to still be going strong.
Robby has said in the press he has yet to meet Amanda's two young daughters but he understands they are taking it slow. Meanwhile, Amanda has called Robby "really sweet" in the press.
The pair was recently photographed walking hand-in-hand and wearing matching outfits during a stroll in West Hollywood, CA. Both Amanda and Robby currently live in the Los Angeles area, so they've also been spotted on dinner dates and baseball games.
"They are very affectionate towards each other," a source told E! News last month.
As shown on Bachelor in Paradise so far, Kristina has been fully invested in Dean despite his lack of commitment and obvious wandering eye. Now with Danielle L. thrown in the mix, Dean has found himself in a sticky situation between two beautiful women.
After a date with both Danielle L. and Kristina, Dean allegedly decided to give his rose at the second Rose Ceremony to Kristina, leaving Danielle L. without a match. (That's when Ben offers her a rose and she accepts).
Drama continued leading up to the third Rose Ceremony, as Dean allegedly spent time with Danielle during the day and Kristina at night.
At the third Rose Ceremony, Danielle L. opted to give her rose to Dean, which he accepted. Kristina quit the show at this point because she was tired of Dean's back and forth antics, says Carbone.
"Dean basically likes both of them. [He] was with Kristina from the [get-go], they spent time together after filming was stopped [in Kentucky], they go back to film, DLo arrives, they go on a date and, well, all hell breaks loose. This will be the biggest drama of the season," Carbone teases.
Prior to Fantasy Suites, Dean supposedly realized he was in love with Kristina, so he dumped Danielle L. and the duo left Mexico separately.
According to Carbone, the Kristina and Danielle L. showdown for Dean's heart is still playing out in the real world, but Danielle has the upper hand since she and Dean both live in Los Angeles.
Carbone reveals the two beautiful brunettes are "at odds" over Dean and he is still "talking, seeing and in contact" with both Kristina and Danielle L.
So how does Dean get away with this scenario? He allegedly says he's not exclusive with either woman.
"So anyone thinking Dean has a chance to be the next Bachelor, you can forget it," Carbone quips.
Matt allegedly left at the cocktail party preceding the season's second Rose Ceremony, but Carbone claims he returned for that Rose Ceremony just to give his rose to Jasmine. Matt then left the show for good, but Carbone is unsure of the reason why.
Jasmine then allegedly took interest in Jonathan Treece, known as the Tickle Monster, and she gave him a rose at the third ceremony. However, the pair chose to leave Paradise before the Fantasy Suites.
And there were many other individuals who left Paradise without ever really finding a love match.
