[Bachelor in Paradise Spoilers Warning: This article contains spoilers about what will unfold on Season 5 -- including which bachelorette and bachelor couples decide to split or stay together and who gets engaged on the finale-- so stop reading immediately if you'd like to remain surprised by Bachelor in Paradise's ending].
Bachelor in Paradise is now five episodes into its fifth season, with the next episode set to air Monday, August 27 at 8PM ET/PT on ABC and feature more drama, confrontations and love.
According to a network press release, Monday's episode will feature a "fickle" female bouncing back and forth between a "well-groomed male model" and a "well-accented French Canadian," resulting in one man's heart getting broken.
"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?" says the network.
"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?"
A new arrival will then refuse to take "no" for an answer when a girl he asks out has found herself falling for his friend in Paradise. The girl had been waiting for him, but his arrival apparently came too late.
However, the lady in demand will change her mind and give he guy a shot, and their "mystical" date will result in a steamy makeout session.
"Will the betrayed buddy go away quietly or step up his game to win his lady back?" ABC teases.
This tease may be referring to Colton Underwood and his girlfriend Tia Booth since Reality Steve spoiler blogger Steve Carbone reported in July the couple broke up in Mexico despite making their relationship official days earlier.
"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 resort and ask the distraught woman out on a date, giving her a newfound sense of hope.
"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.
Based on spoiler information, former The Bachelorette bachelors Kamil Nicalek and Connor Obrochta appear to be the two new bachelor newcomers.
The women will then be preparing to hand out roses at the Rose Ceremony, but no one will apparently still know whether Kendall Long will be giving her rose to Joe Amabile, the Chicago-based grocery who makes her laugh, or Leo Dottavio, the man with whom she can more easily envision a future with since they both live in Los Angeles, CA.
Kendall will have a tough decision to make -- until a "loose-lipped" friend warns her Leo had kissed Chelsea Roy following their first date.
"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 Tuesday, August 28, one man will stand up for his love and reaffirm their bond and connection. But it's not long before his free-spirited girlfriend -- who is probably Kendall -- kisses yet another man on the beach.
Kendall will seemingly feel compelled to admit to Joe what happened, knowing he'll be crushed and might lose interest entirely.
"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.
As shown in a preview, this fight will go down between Leo and Joe, and Leo will throw a drink all over Joe after calling him a "grocery store b-tch."
Once Leo exits the scene, however, Kendall will still have multiple candidates fighting for her heart and ultimately her rose.
The men will then have the ability to hand out roses after fresh bachelorettes arrive.
With many couples being established in Paradise, new girls at the resort could be fresh out of luck until a 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.
More romance will also apparently blossom this week, according to a preview clip, as Annaliese Puccini is shown going on a waterfall-jumping date with Kamil and Eric Bigger shares a sexy kiss with Angela Amezcua.
At the cocktail party preceding the season's Final Rose Ceremony, Kendall and Joe will break up, according to Carbone, although they will have been together for most of the season.
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 decides to go home at the cocktail party because he didn't find a meaningful or significant romantic connection in Mexico.
There will reportedly be nine roses to hand out at the Final Rose Ceremony on Bachelor in Paradise's fifth season.
The guys still left at that point will allegedly be Robby, Jordan M. and Diggy -- who were around because they all entered in the last round of arrivals -- as well as Eric, John, Kamil, Chris, Kevin, and Jordan K.
The women still left by the final Rose Ceremony will reportedly be Astrid, Cassandra, Shushanna, Krystal, Annaliese, Olivia, and Jenna.
According to Carbone, Diggy will be the only person sent home at the Final Rose Ceremony when women are afforded the chance to hand out the roses.
Carbone reports Astrid will give her rose to Kevin, Olivia gives a rose to John, Cassandra offers her rose to Jordan M., Annaliese chooses to give her rose to Kamil, Krystal asks Chris to accept her rose, Jenna gives her rose to Jordan K., and finally Shushanna offers her rose to Robby.
At the end of the season, Bachelor in Paradise host Chris Harrison will sit down with the remaining couples in Mexico and explain they must take their relationships very seriously or leave Paradise.
Chris will ask each pair to decide whether they want 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 choose 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 decide to leave the show as just friends, and Jordan M. and Cassandra do the same.
That leaves four couples to embark on a Fantasy Suite date, and those pairs will reportedly be 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 ends with three engagements!
Ashley Iaconetti and Jared Haibon's engagement isn't a surprise since they already announced Jared popped the question while cameras were rolling, but fans may be taken aback by the other two engagements.
Jordan K. reportedly pops the question to Jenna, whom he has said he fell in love with at first sight.
In addition, Carbone claims in his August set of spoilers that Chris proposes 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 Spetsas -- who was eliminated at Bachelor in Paradise's first Rose Ceremony -- and Chelsea are also believed to still be together, as Chelsea has traveled to Florida twice to visit Nick, including a trip that she took just less than two weeks ago.
Connor 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.
