By Elizabeth Kwiatkowski, 07/18/2018
Bachelor in Paradise spoilers are out! Out of all the familiar faces appearing on Season 5 of the show this summer, who ended up finding love in Mexico -- or, even more, a fiance?
[Bachelor in Paradise Spoiler Warning: This article reveals significant details of Bachelor in Paradise's fifth season and its couples, so please stop reading now if you want to be surprised by the cast members' dating experiences].
However, according to Reality Steve spoiler blogger Steve Carbone, that's only the beginning, like within the first two days of filming the whole show.
Many more flings and romances unfolded in Paradise, and Carbone says in his July 17 spoilers there were two engagements, one of which nearly all of Bachelor Nation is presumably already aware of -- Ashley Iaconetti and Jared Haibon.
If that's not exciting enough, Carbone claims there could be a third engagement, which either took place during taping or will happen when the cast reunites for Bachelor in Paradise's fifth-season reunion show.
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.
According to Carbone, 10 men remained at the final Rose Ceremony on Bachelor in Paradise, and they were Robby, Jordan M., Diggy -- who all entered in the last episode -- Eric, John Graham, Kamil, Chris, Kevin, Jordan K., and Joe Amabile, who is also known as "Joe the Grocer."
At the cocktail party prior to the Final Rose Ceremony, Kendall and Joe reportedly broke up, although they had been together for the majority of the show.
But based on social-media postings, Kendall recently visited Joe in Chicago.
Carbone says there's a chance Kendall and Joe have resumed their relationship in the real world, however, she had been spotted in Atlanta five days earlier allegedly flirting with Alex Bordy from Rachel's season and Michael Garofola at a The Bachelorette watch party.
The women who were reportedly present at the Final Rose Ceremony of the season were Kendall Long, Astrid, Cassandra, Shushanna, Krystal, Annaliese, Olivia, and Jenna.
Eric, however, allegedly departed Paradise at the beginning of the episode because he was tired of being there and established no meaningful romantic connections.
This Rose Ceremony allowed 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 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 decided to break up, although they've been spotted hanging out in the real world together recently and may have reconciled. Robby and Shushanna allegedly opted to leave as friends, as did Jordan M. and Cassandra.
But four couples reportedly decided to enjoy a Fantasy Suite, 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 are any other couples attempting to make it work at home, off-camera?
"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!
Now, for another big spoiler!
It probably comes as no surprise to fans that Tia Booth and Colton Underwood reportedly dated in Paradise given Tia expressed to Becca that she still had feelings for her former flame during the latest episode of The Bachelorette. But Carbone reports they split during the season.
"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.
