Bachelor in Paradise spoilers reveal what's going to happen on the rest of Season 5 -- including which couples make it to the finale, who will continue dating or get engaged, and who will break-up!
[Bachelor in Paradise Spoilers Warning: This story contains major spoilers about what is going to unfold on Season 5 -- including which bachelors and bachelorette couples decided to split or stay together and who got engaged -- so please stop reading now if you'd like to be surprised by Bachelor in Paradise's ending].
On the next episode August 27 episode at 8PM ET/PT on ABC, there will be romance, betrayal and confrontation.
"With one fickle female bouncing back and forth between the well-groomed male model and the well-accented French Canadian, someone's heart is bound to be broken," ABC teases in its press release for next week's episodes.
"Will it be the jealous boyfriend who refuses to back down after seeing the love of his life get hot and heavy with another man? Or will it be the unrelenting new lover who ends up making out with the resolute woman who originally had plans to break up with him? Or will it be the lady in this love triangle that gets left alone?"
This tease may be referring to Colton Underwood and Tia Booth since Reality Steve spoiler blogger Steve Carbone reported in July the couple broke up in Paradise despite becoming boyfriend and girlfriend.
"I guess Colton didn't see themselves lasting in the real world so they broke up and both went home," Carbone wrote in his spoilers.
A newcomer will then step foot onto the Mexican resort and ask the distraught woman out on a date, who will find a renewed sense of hope in this new connection.
"While this new couple embarks on their new romantic journey, a solid couple hits a snag when his insecurities rear their ugly head and he suggests that she try dating other guys to test their relationship," ABC teases.
The women will then hand out roses at the Rose Ceremony, but no one knows whether Kendall Long will give her rose to Joe Amabile, the Chicago-based grocery who makes her laugh, or Leo Dottavio, a man whom she can more easily see a future with beyond the show given they both currently live in the Los Angeles area.
It's apparently a tough decision until a "loose-lipped friend" warns Kendall that one of her suitors had kissed another person. This scene is likely referring to the moment Leo madeout with Chelsea Roy following his first date with Kendall.
"Threatened with the loss of his lady, the guilty party reaches a breaking point that leaves everyone shocked," according to the network.
And then on the August 28 episode, one guy will be feeling reassured about his relationship after standing up for his love, but it's not long before his free-spirited girlfriend kisses yet another man on the beach.
Kendall will feel compelled to tell "the grocery," who is clearly Joe, what happened, knowing it will hurt his feelings and she could potentially lose his interest for having a wandering eye.
"Meanwhile, the other man who couldn't keep his lips to himself no longer expects this capricious woman's rose, leading to a face-off that almost comes to blows and, ultimately, a hasty departure out of Paradise," ABC reveals.
The early exit of this man will still leave four candidates campaigning for the rose of the independent woman.
This lady will then chat with four contenders to determine who is the right man for her and whether there is a promise of love with either one of them.
The men will then have the ability to hand out roses after fresh bachelorettes arrive.
With everyone in Paradise already happily coupled up, the new girls in town initially seem to be out of luck until a seemingly trustworthy man -- who just went all in on a relationship -- agrees to go on a date with a newcomer.
"All of the ladies are shaken to the core, leaving them to ponder just how strong their relationships really are," says the network.
According to a video preview clip ABC has released for next week's Bachelor in Paradise episodes, Leo will be the man to go on a war path and fight Joe before his early exit.
Leo is shown dissing Joe by calling him a "grocery-store b-tch," and then after Joe yells, " Do you want to say it to my face?" Leo turns around and throws a drink all over Joe, erupting a physical brawl in which Leo needs to be restrained.
At the cocktail party preceding the Final Rose Ceremony, Kendall and Joe broke up, according to Carbone, although they had been together for the majority of the show.
Kendall and Joe's relationship, however, doesn't seem to be over in the real world. Not only did Kendall visit Joe in Chicago a few weeks ago, but social media indicates Joe also spent an early August weekend in Los Angeles with her.
Kendall and Joe attended a Dodgers game together in L.A., so there is clearly still a spark there!
Eric Bigger also allegedly decided to go home because he failed to establish a meaningful connection or romantic relationship.
There were reportedly nine roses to hand out at the Final Rose Ceremony on Bachelor in Paradise's fifth season.
The guys still left at that point allegedly were Robby, Jordan M. and Diggy -- who were naturally around because they all entered in the last episode -- as well as Eric, John, Kamil, Chris, Kevin, and Jordan K.
The women who were reportedly present at the Final Rose Ceremony of Bachelor in Paradise were, Astrid, Cassandra, Shushanna, Krystal, Annaliese, Olivia, and Jenna.
According to Carbone, Diggy was the only person sent home at the Final Rose Ceremony when women were afforded the chance to hand out the roses.
Carbone reports Astrid gave her rose to Kevin, Olivia gave a rose to John, Cassandra offered her rose to Jordan M., Annaliese chose to give her rose to Kamil, Krystal asked Chris to accept her rose, Jenna gave her rose to Jordan K., and finally Shushanna gave her rose to Robby.
At the end of the season, Bachelor in Paradise host Chris Harrison met with the remaining couples in Mexico to explain how they needed to make a serious decision about where their relationships stood and whether they were strong enough to last outside of The Bachelor world.
Each couple was therefore instructed to leave Paradise separately, depart the show as a couple, or stay another night in Mexico and enjoy an overnight Fantasy Suite date together.
Kevin and Astrid reportedly chose to split at this point in filming, although they have reportedly since reconciled. Kevin and Astrid are now dating without cameras rolling, according to Carbone.
Robby and Shushanna also allegedly decided to leave the show as just friends, as did Jordan M. and Cassandra.
That left four couples to embark on a Fantasy Suite date, and those pairs reportedly were John and Olivia, Kamil and Annaliese, Chris and Krystal, and Jordan K. and Jenna.
After drama, heartbreak, love triangles, and more, Carbone reports the season ended with three engagements.
One of the engagements is obvious given Ashley Iaconetti and Jared Haibon already announced they got engaged while cameras were rolling in Mexico back in June.
But the other two engagements will probably come as a surprise to Bachelor Nation!
Jordan K. reportedly proposed marriage to Jenna.
In addition, Carbone claims in his August set of spoilers that Chris proposed marriage to Krystal in Paradise!
So have any other couples hit it off or reconciled since taping wrapped earlier this summer?
Besides Astrid and Kevin's rekindled romance, Carbone has heard John and Olivia's romance continued in the real world after the show.
Nick and Chelsea are also believed to be together, as Chelsea has traveled to Florida twice to visit Nick, including a trip that she took just last weekend.
Connor Obrochta and Angela were also allegedly photographed together on July 4 in St. Petersburg, FL.
Carbone is unsure whether Kamil and Annaliese are still dating, but he's certain about the status of two more couples.
"Robby and Shushanna are definitely not together," Carbone writes in his blog, and "Jordan M. and Cassandra aren't together" either.
