'Bachelor in Paradise' spoilers: Who's still together or engaged? What happened to Jenna & Jordan, Kendall & Joe, Tia & Colton, Krystal & Chris, and the other couples??
By Elizabeth Kwiatkowski, 08/31/2018
Bachelor in Paradise spoilers reveal the details for the rest of Season 5 -- including what happens on next week's episodes that Chris Harrison considers the most "jaw dropping in history," and which couples get engaged, continue dating, or break-up in the finale and beyond!
At this point in the season, Jenna and Jordan are falling in love, as well as Kendall and Joe. Krystal is also falling for Chris, while Tia can envision a marriage proposal from Colton. Kevin and Astrid are also going strong, and Annaliese and Kamil have built a pretty solid foundation.
John, however, will have to choose between Chelsea and Olivia, while Eric will be forced to pick between his longtime love interest, Angela, and newcomer Cassandra.
On Monday's episode, "shock waves" will be sent through Paradise, "putting all of the ladies on alert" after Eric takes Cassandra out on a date, according to a press release from ABC. Angela, feeling completely blindsided, will have to figure out how to handle the situation.
And an "overconfident" bachelorette is devastated when she finds out her man can't give her the future that she deserves. Based on the preview of next week's episode, this conversation will be between Colton Underwood and Tia Booth.
"Everyone is shocked when they discover that this couple that seemed so stable has split up and split for the States, separately," ABC teases.
Reality Steve spoiler blogger Steve Carbone wrote in his spoilers, "I guess Colton didn't see themselves lasting in the real world so they broke up and both went home."

This episode will also feature Ashley and Jared's engagement, which is fitting considering they met on Bachelor in Paradise's second season years ago.
"An overjoyed newly engaged couple brings new optimism to the group because if this couple can make things work, anything is possible," says ABC.
Everyone will be thrilled for them, except for Ashley's ex, Kevin from The Bachelor Winter Games. Hopefully this incident won't affect his relationship with Astrid.
The men will then hand out the roses. Four women will assume they are going home until Chris Harrison shocks the group with a last-minute arrival from New Zealand.
Carbone reports the man will be Jordan Mauger from The Bachelor Winter Games. ABC says Jordan will have only one hour to decide whom to give his rose to, and so he will suddenly become the most popular man at the cocktail party.
"After one hopeful woman fails to spark a connection with him, she makes a final attempt to stay in Paradise by trying to steal her good friend's man," ABC reveals. "Will her scheme be successful, or has her friend, who has been a long-suffering victim of love, finally found the man meant for her?"
The two couples will decide to go on romantic dates, leaving their infant daughters at the beach with inexperienced babysitters.
Meanwhile, the happy families will inspire one couple to take their relationship to the next level, and the man will confess his feelings to his love interest on the date.
Meanwhile, ABC says things will be falling apart for another couple and "the conflicted fellow finds himself emotionally drained from saying farewell to his previous love and unable to be the romantic partner that his new interest deserves."
This may be referring to Eric's love triangle with Cassandra and Angela, although at this point several possibilities would appear to exist.
The guy will have to choose whether to stick it out to see what develops or say goodbye to Paradise.
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 feel right pursuing a relationship with either Cassandra or Angela any further after juggling them both in Mexico and having a bit of an emotional meltdown.
At the Final Rose Ceremony, there will reportedly be nine guys handing out roses.
Those guys will allegedly be Robby and Diggy -- who are around because they enter in the last round of arrivals -- as well as Jordan M., 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.
Carbone reports Astrid will give her final rose to Kevin, Olivia will give 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, Chris Harrison will sit down with the remaining couples in Mexico to explain it's time to take their relationships seriously or leave the resort.
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 at home. 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 means four couples decide to take advantage of an overnight Fantasy Suite date: John and Olivia, Kamil and Annaliese, Chris and Krystal, and Jordan K. and Jenna.
Will any of these four couples get engaged?!
In addition to Ashley and Jared, Carbone revealed in his July spoilers that Jordan K. pops the question to Jenna, with whom he found love with at first sight.
And in August, Carbone claimed Chris R. proposes marriage to Krystal on the show's fifth season!
Since the show has wrapped filming, several Bachelor in Paradise cast members have apparently pursued relationships although things didn't work out in Mexico.
Besides Astrid and Kevin, 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 believed to have rekindled a romance and are currently together.
Chelsea has traveled to Florida twice to visit Nick, including a trip that she took two weeks ago, Carbone says.
Connor and Angela were also allegedly photographed together on July 4 in St. Petersburg, FL, which is interesting considering they didn't even date in Paradise.
As of last week, Carbone wasn't sure whether Kamil and Annaliese are still dating, however, he says the reunion special that was filmed on August 28 featured Kamil dumping Annaliese onstage, turning the crowd against him.
Carbone adds "Robby and Shushanna are definitely not together," and "Jordan M. and Cassandra aren't together" either.
