Bachelor in Paradise has already featured tears, heartbreak, deceit, betrayals and love. But there is still a lot more to come!
With new bachelors and bachelorettes arriving in Mexico every day, things can quickly change and even turn upside down.
In the latest episode, fans watched Tia and Colton go out on their second date of the season. However, the couple considered it their first real date since both individuals were fully invested in the relationship and giving love a fair shot.
Colton and Tia officially became boyfriend and girlfriend on Bachelor in Paradise following a double date with Raven Gates and her boyfriend Adam Gottschalk, but according to Reality Steve spoiler blogger Steve Carbone, things won't last.
Tia and Colton's relationship will reportedly fall apart in Mexico on an upcoming Bachelor in Paradise episode and the pair will each leave the show single!
Carbone suggests the breakup was Colton's idea, which probably won't come as a surprise to fans given he had cold feet to begin with and has been accused of having the wrong intentions.
Although Colton seems invested in Tia at this point in the season, Carbone writes in his spoilers, "I guess Colton didn't see themselves lasting in the real world so they broke up and both went home."
While they weren't shown acknowledging it on this week's episodes, Kendall had actually already met Leo before Bachelor in Paradise and the pair had already gone out on at least one date in Los Angeles before they filmed the show in Mexico, according to Carbone.
A preview for next week shows Jordan telling Joe of Jenna, "We're in a good spot," before she was shown making out with Benoit on two separate occasions.
"You see why I'm frustrated? Because words and actions aren't matching... Benoit, he wreaks of desperation. He's about to get a foot up his ass if he doesn't watch out," Jordan is shown saying.
And Kendall admits in the preview her "heart is with Leo" although Joe has been a nice, genuine guy from the start.
Leo "goes on a war path," according to Colton, "and he's not going to stop until he gets his answers."
Leo apparently quarrels with Kevin, arguing there's no need to tell Kendall he had kissed Chelsea Roy. And then an explosive fight will go down between Joe and Leo, who disses Joe as a "grocery-store b-tch" after Kendall appears to choose Joe.
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 reportedly broke up, 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 guys who handed out roses at the Final Rose Ceremony on Bachelor in Paradise's fifth season.
Those guys 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. Jordan was accused of going on the show for a summer fling, but that didn't turn out to be the case.
In addition, Carbone claims Chris proposed marriage to Krystal in Paradise!
When Carbone released his first set of spoilers in July, he wasn't sure when Chris had popped the question in Mexico. But the spoiler blogger posted an update in August revealing the pair did, in fact, get engaged while the show was filming.
