[Bachelor in Paradise Spoilers Warning: Please stop reading now if you don't want to find out which couples got engaged during the 2019 season finale and which couple continued dating after filming wrapped in late June. This article also contains spoilers for Week 5 of Bachelor in Paradise!]
ABC teases Bachelor in Paradise's next two episodes will feature the aftermath of the wedding, "new conflicts" and "sensational confrontations."
"Tayshia and Clay -- both involved in love triangles -- must decide who is best for them, and Dean returns in a shocking surprise that could change Caelynn's romantic future," the network wrote in a press release.
In the September 2 episode, ABC says Angela's arrival in Paradise will trouble Clay as old feelings come bubbling back up for his ex-girlfriend that put his current relationship with Nicole in jeopardy.
Meanwhile, Haley will develop feelings for John Paul, but when Derek mentions to Haley that her love interest is "really crazy" about Tayshia, a series of faceoffs will take place between John Paul and Derek, who is still interested in pursuing a romance with Tayshia.
"Tired of the fighting, Tayshia is thrilled when two new men arrive in Paradise with a Double-Date Card split between them," according to ABC. "Who do these new guys hope to connect with and will the possible recipients of their affections return their feelings?"
Reality Steve spoiler blogger Steve Carbone previously reported in a July 23 spoiler blog that the following three men will join the cast during the next round of male arrivals: Matt Donald and Luke Stone from Hannah Brown's season of The Bachelorette as well as Chase McNary from JoJo Fletcher's season.
Since Carbone reported Matt and Luke went on a double date in Paradise, they will likely be the new arrivals Tayshia is happy to see.
According to Carbone, Angela asked Mike out on a date, and then Matt and Luke went on a double date with Sydney and Kristina, respectively.
The spoiler blogger added, however, that Chase made his way into Paradise and asked Angela out on a date as well.
The women will have the power going into the fourth Rose Ceremony of Bachelor in Paradise's sixth season, but Tayshia will have a very tough decision to make.
"But before the Rose Ceremony, one stunning departure caps off this tumultuous week," ABC teases.
Carbone says John Paul and Derek will get into a big fight and Tayshia will actually take John Paul's side in the dispute, disappointing Derek.
"Derek ends up crying and leaving the show," Carbone wrote in his July spoilers.
During the Tuesday, September 3 episode, all of the remaining couples will attempt to confirm they are on on the same page.
Clay will still find himself conflicted about his feelings toward Nicole and Angela, contemplating "a drastic resolution to his situation," ABC says.
"[And] Blake comes to a realization about his hopes for love, but it will depend on Kristina offering him a rose this week, so all eyes are on her."
According to Carbone, Blake and Kristina's friendship will take somewhat of a dramatic turn before the Rose Ceremony.
"[Blake] tells her he wants to try a relationship again with her and doesn't want to keep giving friendship roses to each other," Carbone wrote.
At the fourth Rose Ceremony of the season, Carbone reports Demi will give her rose to Kristian, Tayshia will offer her rose to John Paul, Hannah will hand her rose to Dylan, Nicole will offer her rose to Clay, and Katie will give her rose to Chris.
Caelynn will offer her rose to Connor, Haley will give her rose to Luke S., Sydney will hand her rose to Matt, Kristina will give her rose to Blake, and finally Angela will offer her rose to Chase.
Mike is reportedly sent home as a result, and he's left wondering when or if he will find love.
Bri reportedly goes on a date with Matt and Revian asks Connor to go out with her.
Meanwhile, Caelynn has grown confident she and Connor will leave Paradise together, ABC says, until one of "the biggest shockers of the season" happens -- when Dean returns to Paradise "with a tempting offer, forcing Caelynn to make a decision about her future happiness."
Carbone says Dean will come back to Paradise and express his true feelings to Caelynn, saying he regretted ever leaving in the first place.
"Dean comes back and takes Caelynn with him," Carbone wrote.
"While she's with Connor -- someone she told people beforehand is the one guy she came on the show for -- Dean shows up, pulls her aside, Caelynn is going back and forth talking between Dean and Connor, then starts making out with Dean and leaves with him."
Connor was reportedly "crushed" and then decided to also leave Bachelor in Paradise, but that wasn't the end of his journey to find love.
Carbone says Whitney Fransway from Nick Viall's The Bachelor season showed up to Paradise looking for Connor but he was already gone.
"Connor had met Whitney at Chris and Krystal's wedding. He thought she was eventually gonna come on the show. She didn't, so Connor left," Carbone reported.
"When they finally did bring Whitney on, Connor was gone. So what happened was, they actually sent Whitney to Connor's room, and Whitney and Connor got to spend a few days in Mexico together and they are still seeing each other last I checked."
Carbone was apparently shocked to find out Caelynn had chosen Dean over Connor.
He previously wrote in his blog, "All I know is I read in many post Colton interviews that Caelynn said she was looking for a good Christian boy, and she ends up doing this... Good luck you two. Or should I say good luck Caelynn, because in a few months, [Dean] will move on to someone else. It's who he is."
Carbone reported last month that three couples got engaged during the sixth-season finale of Bachelor in Paradise that will air later this summer.
According to Carbone, the three couples were Dylan and Hannah G., Chris and Katie, and the franchise's first-ever, same-sex couple -- Demi and Kristian.
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.
According to Carbone, the pair will fall deeper in love throughout their time on the show.
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.
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.
How did Demi and Kristian's relationship begin?
Demi was a bachelorette from Colton Underwood'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."
Carbone then tweeted on June 28 that Demi and Kristian had gotten engaged in Paradise.
What is Chris and Katie's Bachelor backstory?
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 spoilers say they make it all the way to the end.
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.
What is Hannah G. and Dylan's Bachelor backstory?
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.
Dean and Caelynn reportedly continued their relationship outside of Paradise and are still dating. They have yet to get engaged, however.
"Dean and Caelynn are dating," a source told E! News in mid-July.
"They are now in Venice, Italy and plan to travel around Italy together before coming back to [Los Angeles]."
The report came after an eyewitness took a photo of what appeared to be Caelynn and Dean walking down the street together in Venice and sent it to Carbone, who then posted the photo on Twitter on July 13.
Prior to their trip to Venice, the source said Dean had traveled to Spain and Caelynn ended up meeting him there, resulting in four days spent together.
Although Caelynn and Dean never confirmed they were actually in Spain together on social media, they made it pretty obvious by posting photos of their experiences around the same time on their respective Instagram accounts.
"Clearly hating my time in Spain," Caelynn captioned a picture of herself smiling in Barcelona in early July.
And the following day, Dean posted a video of himself swimming in the Embalse de Yesa.
"Driving through Spain today and came across this crazy blue lake. the color reminded me of the lakes in Patagonia," Dean wrote alongside the image.
According to insiders, Caelynn and Dean "really hit it off" in Paradise, People reported.
"But then Dean got cold feet and left," an insider told People. "He got home and realized he really had feelings for Caelynn, so went back to Paradise for a second chance."
The insider added, "Things have been going much better between them since they left Mexico together."
People's report echoes what Carbone had written in his blog about Dean and Caelynn's time on Season 6 of Bachelor in Paradise together earlier this summer.
Dean and Caelynn backstory
After Dean arrived in Paradise, Caelynn was smitten with him and neither person accepted a date from anyone else. The pair grew close and exchanged roses at multiple ceremonies, but then Dean decided to quit the show.
After throwing Caelynn a birthday party, he told the bachelorette that she deserved a better man because he couldn't envision themselves being a serious couple after the show.
Dean planned to travel the world and explained their lifestyles are completely different and he couldn't give Caelynn what she wanted.
Once Dean left, Connor joined the cast and asked Caelynn out on a date. Caelynn had been interested in Connor for a while and the pair hit it off immediately, so Caelynn was convinced she's leave Paradise with him in a healthy relationship.
However, as previously revealed in the Week 5 spoilers, Carbone claims Dean returned to Paradise and insisted he wanted to be with Caelynn.
Caelynn therefore chose Dean over Connor and then Caelynn and Dean left Paradise together, according to Carbone, and now they're still dating in the real world.
Caelynn recently told E! News her experience on the show was "horrible" and "great" at the same time.
Caelynn competed on Colton's season of The Bachelor earlier this year. Although Caelynn and Colton seemed to establish a deep connection, he ended up choosing Caelynn's best friend on the show, Cassie Randolph.
Dean found fame when he appeared on Rachel Lindsay's season of The Bachelorette and made it all the way to a hometown date.
After an appearance on Bachelor in Paradise, Dean later fell for Lesley Murphy on The Bachelor Winter Games, which filmed in late 2017. Dean and Lesley, however, split around April 2018.
But as recently as seven months ago, Dean had insisted all Bachelor Nation relationships were fake and insisted he would not want to be in a relationship with another franchise alum ever again.
"None of these Bachelor relationships are real, not a single one of them," Dean told Access in January.
"Maybe you've got some marriages and some kids and those ones are real, but every one of them's fake and contrived and I'm not into that."
"Granted, there are some that are real, like those ones I guess, but boyfriend-girlfriend relationships, every single one of them is fake," Dean said.
"From a marketing side of things, if you're in a relationship, you get more good notoriety, whatever it is and it's just like, who cares? I'm not going to be in a relationship for the sake of, like, image or selling more things on Instagram, you know?" Dean ranted in his interview with Access.
"So if you wouldn't be in a relationship if all of that weren't there, you shouldn't be in a relationship to begin with. That's kind of the approach I take."
Dean elaborated, "And that's kind of why I never want to get in a Bachelor relationship again because, whether or not, there is an inkling or whisper of a possibility that the other person might be in it because they see the value in it monetarily or whatever, social status wise."
Fans will find out soon enough whether Dean and Caelynn's romance turns out to be the real deal.
