[Bachelor in Paradise Spoilers Warning: Please stop reading now if you don't want to find out which bachelors and bachelorettes got engaged during the 2019 finale and which couples split beforehand. This article also discloses which couples were still together and/or engaged when the reunion special filmed on August 27.]
The arrivals of Matt, Bri, Chase, and Angela haven't aired in the Bachelor in Paradise episodes that have been broadcast on ABC so far, but will occur during this week's upcoming episodes.
After the fifth Rose Ceremony, Bachelor in Paradise host Chris Harrison confronted the cast and told the couples to only stay in Paradise and accept an overnight Fantasy Suite date if they could see themselves dating long-term and maybe even getting engaged.
This was the show's attempt to weed out the couples who were not serious about being in a committed relationship or falling in love.
The following four couples reportedly chose to enjoy Fantasy Suite dates: Demi and Kristian, Dylan and Hannah, Clay and Nicole, and Chris and Katie.
While Clay and Nicole appeared to be the strongest couple in Paradise for a while, Carbone claims things didn't work out between them.
"On 'Decision Day,' Nicole breaks up with Clay because he won't tell her he's in love with her/won't propose. So they leave broken up," Carbone wrote in a July 23 spoilers blog posting.
But the other three couples reportedly all got engaged during the sixth-season finale of Bachelor in Paradise!
According to Carbone, Dylan and Hannah G., Chris and Katie, and the franchise's first-ever, same-sex couple -- Demi and Kristian -- all left Paradise engaged.
Season 6 will therefore tie the record for most engagements in a Bachelor in Paradise season, as Season 3 of the series also ended with three engagements.
Bachelor in Paradise's sixth season reunion special filmed on August 27 and each couple provided an update on the current status of their relationship since Bachelor in Paradise finished filming its 2019 season in Mexico in late June.
Are Dylan and Hannah still together and engaged?
Hannah, a content creator and model from Birmingham, AL, competed on Colton's edition of The Bachelor earlier this year before making her way into Paradise.
Hannah made it to overnight Fantasy Suite dates but was dumped before she could enjoy the night with Colton because he had his heart set on Cassie Randolph.
Dylan just appeared on Hannah Brown's season of The Bachelorette.
The tech entrepreneur from California didn't make it as far as Hannah G. did on her The Bachelor season because he was sent packing by Hannah in Riga, Latvia.
Hannah G. and Dylan sparked a connection right off the bat on Bachelor in Paradise, but then Hannah G. found herself in a love triangle with Dylan and Blake.
While Dylan might've seemed like the safe choice given he was smitten with her and totally open and vulnerable, Blake had this mystery and risk involved Hannah G. couldn't seem to get enough of.
Hannah G. and Blake spent time together in Birmingham, AL, one week before Bachelor in Paradise started filming, but Hannah G. apparently couldn't get over Blake's player past and therefore chose to move forward in the process with Dylan.
Hannah and Dylan were then inseparable for the rest of the season and fell in love.
Of the three couples who got engaged, Carbone predicted in July Hannah G. and Dylan will last and actually get married considering their relationship in Mexico was sincere and long lasting.
And according to Bachelor Spoilers Instagram account, Dylan and Hannah are reportedly still going strong!
Hannah reportedly plans to move from Birmingham, AL, to Los Angeles, CA, in order to be closer to Dylan.
Are Katie and Chris still together and engaged?
Chris initially found fame way back on Emily Maynard's season of The Bachelorette, but he got rejected when Emily determined her Final 3 bachelors.
Chris later returned for Season 3 of Bachelor Pad and then crashed Andi Dorfman's season of The Bachelorette. But Andi chose not to let Chris join her cast of guys since he had developed a player reputation from his time on Bachelor Pad.
Chris then appeared on Seasons 1 and 2 of Bachelor in Paradise, but he only lasted several weeks on each season.
Chris famously announced his "retirement" from The Bachelor franchise in 2015, but he apparently had a change of heart and decided to do the show again.
Katie, a medical sales representative from Sherman Oaks, CA, appeared on Season 23 of The Bachelor starring Colton and finished in eighth place.
Chris B. and Katie didn't get together until the cocktail party that preceded the second Rose Ceremony of the season.
During that Rose Ceremony, Katie decided to give her rose to Chris.
Katie and Chris' connection appeared to deepen quickly, as Chris has said he has no interest in getting to know another woman in Paradise and Katie has gushed about how her man "rocks" and she couldn't believe he was still single after so many attempts on the show.
However, Katie found herself sabotaging her relationship once things got serious. She gave Chris her blessing to explore other options in Paradise, which resulted in Chris going on a date with the beautiful Jennifer Saviano.
Chris was just hoping to be exclusive with Katie at the time, but Jennifer surprised him and Chris found himself crushing on two wonderful women at once.
However, Chris ultimately chose to be with Katie and the couple reportedly rode out the rest of Paradise together all the way to the end.
According to Bachelor Spoilers Instagram account, Katie reportedly came onstage at the reunion special not wearing her engagement ring, but they are still very much engaged!
Bachelor Spoilers revealed, "Katie says it has been difficult" but Chris "promises to do better," and so Katie put her ring back on by the end of the reunion special.
Are Demi and Kristian still together and engaged?
Demi was a bachelorette from Colton's The Bachelor edition. She finished in ninth place and made waves in the house with her confident and forward personality as well as her aggressive approach to dating the then-virgin bachelor.
Carbone said he first heard Demi was bisexual all the way back in January when Colton's season was airing.
Carbone claimed to have received pictures of Demi kissing another woman, but he had no intention of outing Demi at the time.
Demi reportedly met Kristian through fellow The Bachelor contestant Catherine Agro, as Catherine and Kristian were roommates. Demi and Kristian allegedly began dating in February.
As Carbone was prepping his spoilers for the new Bachelor in Paradise season, he heard Demi had a girlfriend whom she was planning to introduce to the world on the show. Carbone later received confirmation Demi's girlfriend left for filming.
"All this of Kristian coming on the show was pre-planned," Carbone alleged in a June 18 blog posting.
"Demi talked about it with producers, she knew Kristian was gonna be brought in after filming had started, and she wanted to use the show as an outlet to come out as bisexual. They're not having Kristian battle over other men for Demi or anything like that. They are there and they are a couple."
Carbone said at the time Bachelor in Paradise would be "The Demi Show" for a while and producers and Demi would both exploit the same-sex relationship given the franchise has never seen it before.
"You can bet your ass ABC loves this and will scream it from the rooftops how ground breaking it is for their show to have a same sex couple on it," Carbone wrote last month.
"That's why they're allowing it and seemingly not caring about any sort of rules for the show."
Demi confirmed in late July she is romantically attracted to and interested in women on social media shortly after a Bachelor in Paradise preview aired on ABC and showed Demi straddling and kissing another woman in bed.
"Spoiler alert: I'm a queer queen," Demi tweeted along with #BachelorInParadise and emojis of a rainbow, a queen and two hearts.
Demi and Kristian were recently shown enjoying their first date in Paradise, during which Demi swore she would commit herself to their relationship.
"I finally found not only myself, but I've found what my heart wants, and I feel so sure about it. I want to commit to you, and I've never wanted to commit to someone like this before," Demi told Kristian.
ABC previously teased Demi and Kristian's blossoming relationship status by airing a promo clip in which Demi said in a confessional, "I know that I love this girl. I'm just so happy that I found her, and I can definitely picture being with her for the rest of my life."
In addition, Demi's voice could be heard saying, "I smell an engagement, and it feels amazing," in the trailer.
According to Bachelor Spoilers Instagram, Demi and Kristian are still together, happy and engaged!
Kristian reportedly gave Demi an engagement ring on the reunion show so they could both share the experience.
Tayshia and John Paul got back together
Tayshia and John Paul had a fun and playful connection in Paradise, but Tayshia found herself torn once Derek Peth became available.
Tayshia and Derek slowly formed a romantic connection, as well as a steamy kiss, as John Paul fell harder and harder for Tayshia.
John Paul's emotions bubbled over at Krystal Nielson and Chris Randone's wedding and so he confronted Derek about allegedly trying to use Tayshia and being on the show to promote his podcast and gain more Instagram followers.
Tayshia found herself stuck in a love triangle, but Derek allegedly left the show following another argument with John Paul, according to Carbone.
Carbone wrote in his July spoilers that Tayshia ended up taking John Paul's side in the fight and so Derek quit Paradise in tears.
Tayshia and John Paul were then reportedly tied at the hip until it became time for Fantasy Suites, which is when Tayshia came down with a case of cold feet.
At the reunion special, John Paul and Tayshia revealed that although they left Paradise before the overnight dates, they eventually got back together and are now dating, according to Bachelor Spoilers.
Tayshia reportedly said she regretted breaking up with John Paul before their Fantasy Suite date.
After the pair left Paradise single, Tayshia admitted she showed up at John Paul's house to hash things out, and then they rekindled their romance.
Bachelor Spoilers claim Tayshia and John Paul are now going strong.
