Bachelor in Paradise spoilers reveal which bachelors and bachelorettes found love and a relationship down in Mexico -- and even who got engaged!
[Bachelor in Paradise Spoilers Warning: This article reveals major spoilers and details about Season 5 of Bachelor in Paradise and its couples -- so please stop reading now if you don't want to find out who is dating or engaged to whom].
Bachelor in Paradise's fifth-season premiere is right around the corner on Tuesday, August 7 at 8PM ET/PT on ABC.
And that's not all. According to Carbone, there could be a third Bachelor in Paradise engagement, which either took place during taping or will occur when the cast reunites for the series' fifth-season reunion show.
Chris didn't receive the most flattering edit on The Bachelorette, as he refused to allow Becca to walk him out following his unexpected elimination when she was just trying to be polite. He also sparked a lot of drama with the guys; however, Chris redeemed himself on The Men Tell All by having a singing choir apologize to Becca on his behalf.
In a similar manner, Krystal was disliked by most of the women on Arie's season, and she even managed to rub the Bachelor the wrong way for giving him a hard time about his group-date decisions and use of his time.
It will therefore be interesting to watch these two big personalities fall in love on the show!
"Put it this way, if they DIDN'T get engaged in Paradise, there's a good chance they will at the reunion show from everything I'm hearing," Carbone claims.
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. He dated Amanda Stanton on Bachelor in Paradise 4 last summer, but the pair broke up shortly after returning home and she accused him of cheating and being a player.
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., Diggy -- who were naturally around because they all entered in the last episode -- Eric, John Graham from Becca's season, Kamil, Chris, Kevin, Jordan K., and Joe Amabile, who is also known as "Joe the Grocer" from Becca's season of The Bachelorette.
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 Bordy 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 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 this past weekend. 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 revealed 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 a little over one week ago in Orlando, FL, while Connor and Angela were reportedly photographed together on July 4 in St. Petersburg, FL. So there is hope for them!
It probably comes as no surprise to fans that Tia Booth and Colton Underwood dated in Paradise given there was photographic evidence and Tia also expressed to Becca that she still had feelings for her former flame during a recent broadcast of The Bachelorette. But Carbone reports the pair actually broke up during Season 5.
"I guess Colton didn't see themselves lasting in the real world so they broke up and both went home," Carbone writes in his blog.
Carbone also teases there will be a "big fight" this season between two guys. "Major drama" will apparently unfold and one guy will come out looking really bad.
After Bachelor in Paradise debuts on August 7, the series will air on both Monday and Tuesday nights beginning the following week from 8-10PM ET/PT.
