By Elizabeth Kwiatkowski, 08/06/2019
Bachelor in Paradise just premiered, but spoilers reveal which couples go all the way and get engaged, and who is still together and dating after leaving Paradise.
[Bachelor in Paradise Spoilers Warning: Please stop reading immediately if you want to be surprised by what happens over the course of Bachelor in Paradise's sixth season and Season 6's finale as this article contains major spoilers and details!]
Bachelor in Paradise's sixth season debuted on Monday, August 5 at 8PM ET/PT, but the second episode of the two-night premiere event is set to air on Tuesday, August 6 at the same time.
During Monday night's broadcast, singles from The Bachelor and The Bachelorette franchise returned to Mexico for a second, third, or maybe even a fourth (or more) shot at finding their perfect match. But more singles will come as the season progresses!
Although over two dozen people from the long-running franchise will appear on the sixth season of Bachelor in Paradise, many familiar faces were reintroduced to viewers on Monday night.
Blake asked Tayshia out on a date, while Demi and Hannah G. had steamy makeout sessions with Derek and Dylan, respectively.
Caelynn also exposed Blake's player past and how he allegedly had sex with her and Kristina in the same weekend at a Stagecoach festival, which just so happened to be the same weekend he flirted with Tayshia as well.
According to Carbone, Dylan and Chris both got down on one knee and proposed marriage, and the other couple happened to be the franchise's first-ever, same-sex pairing!
Dylan reportedly proposed marriage to Hannah G., Chris popped the question to Katie, and then Demi and her girlfriend Kristian Haggerty -- who is not associated with Bachelor Nation or any Bachelor show -- got engaged.
Demi confirmed in late July she is romantically attracted to and interested in 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 episode, Demi explained she is "fluid" and decided to date in Paradise to determine exactly what 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 forBachelor in Paradise this season, 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 Hannah expressed interest in Blake at first, Dylan made his move on the blonde beauty and the pair got together right away. However, previews show Hannah is going to eventually make out with Blake and Wills, sending Dylan on a crazy emotional ride.
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 -- not even one person expressing how the other is good looking.
At the first Rose Ceremony, Chris reportedly gave his rose to Kristina and Katie received a rose from Wills.
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. (Demi discussed her sexuality with Hannah Brown in the debut episode).
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. relationship spoilers
Of all three couples, Carbone predicts Hannah G. and Dylan will last and actually get married considering their relationship in Mexico was sincere and neither person strayed from the relationship during their time on the show.
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 relationship spoilers
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.
Chris then appeared on Seasons 1 and 2 of Bachelor in Paradise, but he only lasted several weeks on each season.
Chris famously announced his "retirement" from The Bachelor franchise in 2015, but he apparently had a change of heart and decided to do the show again.
Katie, a medical sales representative from Sherman Oaks, CA, appeared on Season 23 of The Bachelor starring Colton and finished in eighth place.
Demi and Kristian relationship spoilers
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.
Which other BiP couple is still together and dating?
Dean and Caelynn reportedly continued their relationship outside of Paradise and are still dating.
However, they are not engaged.
"Dean and Caelynn are dating," a source told E! News in mid-July.
"They are now in Venice, Italy and plan to travel around Italy together before coming back to [Los Angeles]."
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.
Dean and Caelynn relationship spoilers
Carbone reported Cam gave his rose to Caelynn at the first Rose Ceremony of the season and then Dean and Mike Johnson 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.
