By Elizabeth Kwiatkowski, 08/08/2019
Bachelor in Paradise spoilers tease next week's upcoming episodes as well as how Season 6 ends -- including who got engaged, and which couples stayed together and are still dating after leaving Paradise.
Bachelor in Paradise just debuted its sixth season on ABC, but spoilers have already leaked out, revealing which couples get engaged in the finale and who is still together and dating after leaving Paradise.
[Bachelor in Paradise spoilers warning: This story contains spoilers about which Season 6 bachelors and bachelorettes break-up, end up together, or end up engaged in Bachelor in Paradise -- so please stop reading if you're not interested in finding out which relationships come out of Bachelor in Paradise's sixth season].
On the upcoming Monday, August 12 episode of Bachelor in Paradise, ABC says in a press release for the next two episodes Hannah will find herself "torn" between Dylan and Blake.
And then after Hannah accepts her rose from one of the guys, the other disappointed bachelor will be left to choose between "two women he has left hanging."
According to Reality Steve spoiler blogger Steve Carbone, Hannah accepts Dylan's rose and then Blake will most likely be left to choose between Kristina and Tayshia. Blake reportedly ended up giving his rose to Tayshia.
"The chess game continues when Chris drops a bomb in Paradise, choosing a shocked beauty over the blindsided woman with whom he has been keeping company," ABC teased.
Carbone says Chris gave his rose to Kristina, which will probably shock Annaliese, who was trying to win his heart.
The nine women who survive the Rose Ceremony will be excited to see which guys will arrive on the beach next, but the nine men already in Paradise will attempt to keep and protect the ladies of interest "from the self-proclaimed mayor of Paradise."
"This confident guy immediately zeroes in on Hannah G. Meanwhile, how will Clay deal with Nicole being a hot commodity?" ABC teased in the press release.
Cam will further pursue Caelynn, but then "a dashing newcomer" will sweep her off her feet.
On the subsequent August 13 episode, there will be "explosive confrontations and shocking secrets."
Hannah G. will share something with one suitor that might crumble their relationship.
Meanwhile, Demi is having difficulty moving forward with Derek and shares the feelings she still has for a woman back home.
And Caelynn will be juggling Cam and the handsome newcomer (reportedly Mike), who are both vying for her attention and affection.
"But her plans change when another man returns to Paradise with a Date Card and she wants to be the object of his affection. Can she trust this former bad boy? Or will she make the same mistake twice?" ABC teased.
Carbone claims the man with the Date Card will be Dean.
Nicole will then be tempted by a "suave" newcomer -- Jordan, reportedly -- despite her romance with Clay. Clay will be hoping to assert himself and change Nicole's mind about this new enticement.
"As the ladies get ready to hand out the roses, the most vulnerable men plan to pull out all the stops at the cocktail party. Clay and his new rival are headed for a combustible face-off. Will the situation explode or will someone back down?" ABC teased.
According to Carbone, the situation involves Jordan and Christian, who also goes on a date with Nicole during the second round of dates.
"During the cocktail party of this episode, Christian and Nicole are off by themselves talking and he brought a pinata," Carbone wrote in a July 23 blog posting.
"Clay goes over to interrupt and basically Christian doesn't let him. Clay goes back to the group, tells them what happened, and Jordan then goes over to talk to Christian."
However, things then get violent and both Jordan and Christian end up being kicked off the show.
"[Jordan]'s about to rip the pinata from where it was hanging (basically to throw it in the ocean like last season's teddy bear), but Christian grabs his arm, and Jordan body slams him to the ground," Carbone wrote.
"Security has to jump in and separate the two, and after a while, Chris Harrison says they both have to leave the show. You saw a clip of how this goes down on the promo that ran."
And that's only the drama that happens in the second round of dates! What serious relationships will bloom that will eventually end in engagements?
Carbone recently reported three couples got engaged during the season finale that will air later this summer.
According to Carbone, Hannah and Dylan got engaged, as did Chris and Katie.
In addition, the franchise's first-ever, same-sex pairing -- Demi and her girlfriend Kristian Haggerty -- also got engaged!
Kristian, who is not associated with Bachelor Nation or any Bachelor show, is the woman whom Demi was shown discussing during the premiere episode of Bachelor in Paradise. Demi told Hannah Brown she really cared for a warm-hearted, wonderful woman.
Demi confirmed in late July she's attracted to women on social media shortly after a Bachelor in Paradise preview aired on ABC and showed Demi straddling and kissing another woman in bed.
"Spoiler alert: I'm a queer queen," Demi tweeted along with #BachelorInParadise and emojis of a rainbow, a queen and two hearts.
In the premiere, Demi explained she is "fluid" and wanted to explore different relationships in Paradise in order to determine what exactly she wants in a partner. Demi said she falls in love with a person, regardless of whether that person is male or female.
In a preview clip that recently aired for a future episode of Bachelor in Paradise, Demi said in a confessional, "I know that I love this girl. I'm just so happy that I found her, and I can definitely picture being with her for the rest of my life."
In addition, Demi's voice could be heard saying, "I smell an engagement, and it feels amazing," in the trailer.
Season 6 will therefore tie the record for most engagements in a Bachelor in Paradise season, as Season 3 of the series also ended with three engagements.
Although Blake attempted to pursue and win Hannah G. over, Carbone reported she and Dylan never strayed from each other and exchanged roses all season long.
And according to Carbone, Chris and Katie got together at the second Rose Ceremony of the season when Katie decided to give her rose to Chris. Viewers have not seen any interaction between this pair yet, as Annaliese has been shown making the moves on Chris.
At the first Rose Ceremony, Katie received a rose from Wills, and as previously mentioned, Chris reportedly gave his rose to Kristina.
As for Demi, she and Derek reportedly exchanged roses at the first two Rose Ceremonies of the season before she revealed to the group she's bisexual.
Kristian, whom Demi had already been dating for several months prior to the show, reportedly showed up to Paradise shortly after Kristina's arrival.
Dylan and Hannah G.
Of all three couples, Carbone predicts Hannah G. and Dylan will last and actually get married considering their relationship in Mexico was sincere and long-lasting.
Hannah G., a content creator and model from Birmingham, AL, competed on Colton Underwood's edition of The Bachelor earlier this year before making her way into Paradise.
Hannah G. made it to overnight Fantasy Suite dates but was dumped before she could enjoy the night with Colton because he had his heart set on Cassie Randolph.
Dylan just appeared on Hannah B.'s season of The Bachelorette.
The tech entrepreneur from California didn't make it as far as Hannah G. did on her The Bachelor season, because Dylan was sent packing by Hannah in Riga, Latvia.
Chris and Katie
Chris initially found fame way back on Emily Maynard's season of The Bachelorette, but he got rejected when Emily was determining her Final 3 bachelors.
Chris later returned for Season 3 of Bachelor Pad and then crashed Andi Dorfman's season of The Bachelorette. But Andi chose not to let Chris join her cast of guys since he had developed a player reputation from his time on Bachelor Pad.
Like Katie, Demi was also a bachelorette from Colton's The Bachelor edition. She finished in ninth place and made waves in the house with her confident and forward personality as well as her aggressive approach to dating the then-virgin bachelor.
Carbone said he first heard Demi was bisexual all the way back in January when Colton's season was airing.
Carbone claimed to have received pictures of Demi kissing another woman, but he had no intention of outing Demi at the time.
Demi reportedly met Kristian through fellow The Bachelor contestant Catherine Agro, as Catherine and Kristian were roommates. Demi and Kristian allegedly began dating in February.
As Carbone was prepping his spoilers for the new Bachelor in Paradise season, he heard Demi had a girlfriend whom she was planning to introduce to the world on the show. Carbone later received confirmation Demi's girlfriend left for filming.
Carbone says Demi and Kristian were given a Date Card once they reunited in Paradise and then Kristian got to stay on the show.
"All this of Kristian coming on the show was pre-planned," Carbone wrote in a June 18 blog posting.
"Demi talked about it with producers, she knew Kristian was gonna be brought in after filming had started, and she wanted to use the show as an outlet to come out as bisexual. They're not having Kristian battle over other men for Demi or anything like that. They are there and they are a couple."
Carbone said at the time Bachelor in Paradise would be "The Demi Show" for a while and producers and Demi would both exploit the same-sex relationship given the franchise has never seen it before.
"You can bet your ass ABC loves this and will scream it from the rooftops how ground breaking it is for their show to have a same sex couple on it," Carbone wrote last month.
"That's why they're allowing it and seemingly not caring about any sort of rules for the show."
But fans shouldn't feel sorry for Derek, according to Carbone, because he wasn't exactly blindsided by Demi's romance with another female.
"I guess there had been talk either before the show or on the show by Demi that she had dated women in her past," Carbone said last month.
"I don't think Derek physically expected Demi's girlfriend to show up during filming, but I don't think he was all that shocked by it either when it happened... I think the seed was planted so he wasn't completely caught off guard."
Carbone then tweeted on June 28 that Demi and Kristian had gotten engaged in Paradise.
The report came after an eyewitness took a photo of what appeared to be Caelynn and Dean walking down the street together in Venice and sent it to Carbone, who then posted the photo on Twitter on July 13.
Prior to their trip to Venice, the source said Dean had traveled to Spain and Caelynn ended up meeting him there, resulting in four days spent together.
Although Caelynn and Dean never confirmed they were actually in Spain together on social media, they made it pretty obvious by posting photos of their experiences around the same time on their respective Instagram accounts.
"Clearly hating my time in Spain," Caelynn captioned a picture of herself smiling in Barcelona in early July.
And the following day, Dean posted a video of himself swimming in the Embalse de Yesa.
"Driving through Spain today and came across this crazy blue lake. the color reminded me of the lakes in Patagonia," Dean wrote alongside the image.
According to insiders, Caelynn and Dean "really hit it off" in Paradise, People reported.
"But then Dean got cold feet and left," an insider told People. "He got home and realized he really had feelings for Caelynn, so went back to Paradise for a second chance."
The insider added, "Things have been going much better between them since they left Mexico together."
People's report mirrors what Carbone had written in his blog about Dean and Caelynn's time on Season 6 of Bachelor in Paradise earlier this summer.
Carbone reported Cam gave his rose to Caelynn at the first Rose Ceremony of the season and then Dean and Mike arrived.
Mike reportedly asked Caelynn out on a date but then she gave her rose to Dean at the second Rose Ceremony of Season 6.
"At the 3rd rose ceremony, Dean gave his rose to Caelynn then left. Didn't see a relationship progressing past the show," Carbone tweeted on June 30.
"[Connor Saeli] came in and asked out Caelynn and things were going well until Dean returned, said he wanted to be w/ Caelynn, and Caelynn left w/ Dean."
Caelynn and Dean reportedly therefore left Bachelor in Paradise dating each other. Caelynn recently told E! News her experience on the show was "horrible" and "great" at the same time.
Caelynn competed on Colton's season of The Bachelor earlier this year. Although Caelynn and Colton seemed to establish a deep connection, he ended up choosing Caelynn's best friend on the show, Cassie Randolph.
Dean found fame when he appeared on Rachel Lindsay's season of The Bachelorette and made it all the way to a hometown date.
Dean never entered a serious relationship with Kristina or Danielle, but he later fell for Lesley Murphy on The Bachelor Winter Games, which filmed in late 2017. Dean and Lesley, however, split around April 2018.
However, as recently as seven months ago, Dean had insisted all Bachelor Nation relationships were fake and insisted he would not want to be in a relationship with another franchise alum ever again.
"None of these Bachelor relationships are real, not a single one of them," Dean told Access in January.
"Maybe you've got some marriages and some kids and those ones are real, but every one of them's fake and contrived and I'm not into that."
"Granted, there are some that are real, like those ones I guess, but boyfriend-girlfriend relationships, every single one of them is fake," Dean said.
"From a marketing side of things, if you're in a relationship, you get more good notoriety, whatever it is and it's just like, who cares? I'm not going to be in a relationship for the sake of, like, image or selling more things on Instagram, you know?" Dean ranted in his interview with Access.
"So if you wouldn't be in a relationship if all of that weren't there, you shouldn't be in a relationship to begin with. That's kind of the approach I take."
Dean elaborated, "And that's kind of why I never want to get in a Bachelor relationship again because, whether or not, there is an inkling or whisper of a possibility that the other person might be in it because they see the value in it monetarily or whatever, social status wise."
Fans will find out soon enough whether Dean and Caelynn's romance turns out to be the real deal.
