The women will then have the opportunity to hand out roses at the first Rose Ceremony of the season.
"After pressure from her girlfriends, one frustrated friend-without-benefits tells her guy with cold feet to be all in with her or she's moving on," reveals the network. "So, when the former NFL player decides to explore his options, his rival for her affection sees an opportunity to score major points."
Only one of these two men will receive this woman's rose.
And then things will become intense when a man finds out that last season's The Bachelorette star, Becca Kufrin, has arrived in Paradise to visit her girlfriends.
Since the man had confessed his love to Becca, this bachelor realizes how conflicted he is and has a major breakdown. As fans recall, both Wills Reid and Colton Underwood had confessed their love to Becca on The Bachelorette.
And then on the Tuesday-night episode airing on August 14, Becca will attempt to give the emotional bachelor the closure he needs.
Meanwhile, one hopeless romantic is already imagining leaving Paradise engaged to the man who had been making her feel special from the start.
"Yet when a new arrival touches down in Mexico, this blindsided babe is suddenly worried that she may be on her way out the door. Later, a nerdy computer programmer is surprisingly a hot commodity when two other newcomers both take him out on dates," according to ABC.
Software developer John Graham has been described as "nerdy" so far on Paradise, so will he get stuck in a love triangle?
And then a single dad will enjoy a candlelit date with his love interest, letting her know how serious he is and that he has the best of intentions.
But when the woman says she'd like to slow down, the man will not be pleased to have been placed in the friend zone.
As another confused guy tries to figure out what he wants, the woman who has been waiting on him shifts her focus to a man claiming to be all in.
"Except when another feisty female finds this smooth talker sitting alone, they end up sharing a kiss," according to ABC. "His loose lips about his escapades get him in trouble when the deceived damsel is enlightened by her ex and decides she needs to have a word with the cheat."
One of the engagements comes as no surprise to Bachelor Nation, as Ashley Iaconetti and Jared Haibon have already gushed about their decision to commit to each other and tie the knot.
But the other two engagements are going to come as a big surprise to fans!
Jordan Kimball, the professional model from Becca's season of The Bachelorette who was portrayed as a villain on the show, reportedly popped the question to Jenna Cooper, the blonde and quirky fitness instructor from Arie Luyendyk Jr.'s season of The Bachelor.
Carbone wasn't sure when Chris and Krystal got engaged when he released his first Bachelor in Paradise spoilers in July, but he revealed in early August that Chris did, in fact, propose marriage to Krystal in Mexico while the show was taping.
Chris didn't receive the most flattering edit on The Bachelorette, but he redeemed himself on The Men Tell All through a sweet apology to Becca. Krystal, however, has already been accused of being the same old mean girl that people got to know on The Bachelor earlier this year.
Kamil and Leo competed for Becca's heart on The Bachelorette 14, Olivia and Jacqueline fought to win Arie's heart on The Bachelor 22, Diggy vied for Rachel Lindsay's affection on The Bachelorette 13, Jubilee and Shushanna were on Ben Higgins' 20th season, and Christen and Cassandra appeared on Juan Pablo Galavis' The Bachelor edition.
As for Robby, he finished as the runner-up on JoJo Fletcher's season of The Bachelorette and will be making his third attempt at finding love on the franchise.
Besides Kevin and Bibiana from The Bachelor Winter Games, Clare Crawley's ex-fiance Benoit Beausejour-Savard and The Bachelor New Zealand star Jordan Mauger will also reportedly make an appearance in Mexico.
There were reportedly 10 guys who made it all the way to the Final Rose Ceremony on Bachelor in Paradise.
According to Carbone, those guys were Robby, Jordan M. and Diggy -- who were around because they all entered in the final round of new arrivals -- as well as Eric, John, Kamil, Chris, Kevin, Jordan K., and Joe Amabile.
At the cocktail party preceding the Final Rose Ceremony, Kendall Long and Joe reportedly called it quits on their relationship, although they had been together for the majority of the show.
But based on social-media postings, Kendall recently visited Joe in Chicago, so maybe there's still a spark there!
While there's a chance Kendall and Joe have resumed their relationship in the real world, she was also spotted in Atlanta five days earlier allegedly flirting with Alex Bordyukov from Rachel's season and Michael Garofola from Desiree Hartsock's season at a watch party for The Bachelorette.
The women who were reportedly present at the Final Rose Ceremony of the season were Kendall, Astrid, Cassandra, Shushanna, Krystal, Annaliese, Olivia, and Jenna.
Eric, however, allegedly left Mexico at the beginning of the episode because he was getting sick of being there and had yet to established any meaningful romantic connections.
This particular Rose Ceremony enabled the women to hand out roses to the men, so Carbone reports Astrid gave a rose to Kevin, Olivia gave her rose to John, Cassandra offered a rose to Jordan M., Annaliese chose to give her rose to Kamil, Krystal asked Chris to accept her rose, Jenna gave a rose to Jordan K., and finally Shushanna gave her rose to Robby.
Diggy was the only person reportedly sent home at the Final Rose Ceremony.
Similar to seasons past, Bachelor in Paradise host Chris Harrison met with the couples in Mexico afterward to inform them things were getting serious. Each couple was told they could leave Paradise separately, leave the show as a couple, or stay another night and enjoy a Fantasy Suite.
According to Carbone, Kevin and Astrid opted to split, although they've been spotted hanging out in the real world together recently and may have reconciled.
Robby and Shushanna reportedly decided to leave the show as just friends, and Jordan M. and Cassandra made the same choice.
But four couples allegedly decided to enjoy a Fantasy Suite date, and those pairings were John and Olivia, Kamil and Annaliese, Chris and Krystal, and Jordan K., and Jenna.
Carbone has heard John and Olivia's relationship is continuing outside of Paradise, as he allegedly visited Olivia in Chicago recently. So we'll see what develops there.
As for whether any other couples are attempting to make a relationship work in the real world, off-camera, Carbone disclosed several pieces of information.
"I have no idea if Kamil and Annaliese are still a thing, and honestly, I don't even care to," Carbone admits. "Robby and Shushanna are definitely not together, Jordan M. and Cassandra aren't together, and Kevin and Astrid pretty much are."
Nick and Chelsea were spotted in Orlando, FL, after taping, while Connor and Angela were reportedly photographed together on July 4 in St. Petersburg, FL. So there is hope for those two couples!
