By Elizabeth Kwiatkowski, 08/20/2018
Bachelor in Paradise spoilers tease this week's upcoming episodes as well as how Season 5 ends -- including who got engaged, and which couples stayed together.
[Bachelor in Paradise spoilers warning: This story contains spoilers about which Season 5 bachelors and bachelorettes break-up, end up together, or end up engaged -- so please stop reading if you're not interested in finding out which relationships come out of Bachelor in Paradise's fifth season].
Bachelor in Paradise is several weeks into its fifth season, and many relationships are starting to form and develop on the show.
But with newcomers arriving in Mexico seemingly ever day and unexpected, romantic dates unfolding, things can change in Paradise so quickly.
On the next August 20 episode of Bachelor in Paradise, ABC reveals a "distressed" woman will confront the man who had deceived her by kissing another bachelorette, who then joins the awkward, tension-filled conversation.
Tia put so much hope into Chris that she will be "shocked" to discover his true colors and immediately focus her attention back on Colton Underwood, who was the guy to warn her about Chris' actions to begin with. Will Colton turn out to be the guy for Tia?
According to Reality Steve spoiler blogger Steve Carbone, Tia and Colton will eventually go out on a double date with her pal Raven Gates and boyfriend Adam Gottschalk.
However, Tia and Colton's romance will once again crumble in Mexico, and the pair will reportedly break things off and leave the resort as single individuals.
Getting back to the August 20 episode, a new arrival with a Date Card will steal the former professional football player away for a conversation, and Tia will worry they might hit it off.
But this mystery woman -- a "brainy beauty," according to ABC -- will find herself pleasantly surprised by the professional wrestler, whom she initially thought she'd have little in common with. The woman therefore asks Kenny out on the date instead of Colton.
With four women potentially going home at the next Rose Ceremony, one insecure lady -- who is likely Annaliese Puccini, based on recent episode -- sets her sights on the suddenly-popular single dad as well.
When Kenny returns from his date with the intelligent bachelorette, his "not-so-secret admirer" will be waiting for him back at the beach with a surprise dessert.
"When a third contender tosses her hat -- and her lips -- into the ring at the cocktail party, which of the three will he ultimately choose to give his rose?" teases the network.
But the drama doesn't stop there. A pot-stirrer at the cocktail party will gift the birthday girl with a giant stuffed dog designed to get under the skin of her jealous suitor, who also happens to be his bitter rival.
As fans saw in the last episode, Jordan fell for Jenna hard, admitting it was love at first sight. However, David approached Jenna after her date with Jordan to give her a birthday cake. Jenna found the gesture to be cute and kind, but Jordan couldn't stand to see David get in his way.
Jordan just assumed David wanted to get a rise out of him and potentially ruin any good thing he had going.
When his temper flares, Jordan will apparently lash out at the adorable oversized puppy stuffed animal, throwing it into the ocean.
The spectacle will upset Jenna, leaving her with a big decision to make between the two bachelors while other women panic and scramble over the prospect of not receiving a rose at all.
And then on Tuesday, August 21 at 8PM ET/PT, the women will hand out roses at the ceremony, and they are ready for some new options to enter Paradise.
Kendall will surprise the group by saying "yes" to Leo's date invitation.
Bachelor in Paradise's original bartender, Jorge, will show up on the date and inform the couple he had written a romance novel, which is depicted in a dramatization starring some fan-favorite Bachelor alumni. All he needs are two models for the cover.
"One hot and steamy photoshoot leads the lusty lady to realize that she may not be ready to settle down with the supermarket sweetie anxiously waiting for back at the resort," ABC reveals.
A Date Card would certainly help Joe given his position, but the card has another guy's name on it. This time, it's no surprise to anybody when the lucky lady invited out says "yes."
Hoping to return from the date with an established relationship, the woman is shocked when her friends -- who also happen to be a happy couple from Paradise's past -- show up to help them soak up the local culture.
This is the double date with Tia, Colton, Raven and Adam. And as previously reported, things don't go very well for Tia.
"When her old friend from home stuns her with a tearful warning about her date's intentions, she knows that she must confront him to make sure that he is here for the right reasons," ABC teases.
And love will be in the air during the episode's third date, when a new arrival "from a foreign land" asks out a newly-available "blonde bombshell," who is over her last boyfriend after his behavior at the previous cocktail party.
Upon returning from a successful first date, the giddy couple is awaited by the "guilt-ridden gentleman," who attempts to win the object of his affection back with "a bold gesture."
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, CA, with her.
Kendall and Joe attended a Dodgers game together, 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've been spotted hanging out in the real world together recently and may have reconciled.
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, according to Carbone, and those pairs were John and Olivia, Kamil and Annaliese, Chris and Krystal, and Jordan K. and Jenna.
After betrayals, drama, heartbreak, love triangles, romance 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! This engagement is a shocker since the couple didn't even get involved with each other until the latest episode.
When Carbone released his first set of spoilers in July, he wasn't sure when Chris had popped the question. But the spoiler blogger posted an update in August revealing the pair did, in fact, get engaged in Mexico during filming.
So have any other couples hit it off or reconciled since taping wrapped earlier this summer?
Carbone has heard John and Olivia's romance continued in the real world after the show, as did Kevin and Astrid's relationship.
Nick and Chelsea were recently spotted in Orlando, FL, enjoying each other's company, and Connor Obrochta and Angela were 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.
