ABC has thrown together a new summer show called “Bachelor in Paradise” for fans of “The Bachelor” and “The Bachelorette.” This won't quite be like “Bachelor Pad,” but it does bring a bunch of former contestants together in the hopes that some will find love. Fans of course want “Bachelor in Paradise” spoilers, and Reality Steve has them. What did he share on Wednesday about the couples together at the end of this show?
The set-up of “BIP” is a bit convoluted, but essentially everybody gets to go on a lot of dates. Some people leave after each round, but new people are brought in after each rose ceremony too. There are a lot of couples who come together throughout the season, but what fans will be anxious to see is who is still together at the end. Apparently for the end of the show, the remaining six couples will be left with a big opportunity to consider. Do they stay together and head to a fantasy suite, or do they split apart?
According to Reality Steve's “Bachelor in Paradise” spoilers, most of the couples split up. There are some interesting combinations here, including Tasos from Andi's season with Christy from Juan Pablo's season. Apparently they split before hitting the fantasy suite. AshLee Frazier from Sean's season couples up with Graham Bunn from DeAnna's season for much of “BIP,” but they too split prior to the fantasy suite. Fans of Graham might breathe a bit of a sigh of relief over that news.
Sarah Herron, from Sean's season, and Robert Graham, from Desiree's season, do go to the fantasy suite, but they split up afterwards. Another coupling that hits the dust is Zack Kalter from Desiree's season and Jackie Parr from Sean's season. So, who does that leave together? Fans may find these “Bachelor in Paradise” spoilers interesting. Apparently Marcus Grodd from Andi's season sticks with Lacy Faddoul from Juan Pablo's season, and they actually are really into one another.
There's one other couple that hits the fantasy suite together and is said to still be together post-filming. That would be Michelle Money and Cody Sattler, Cody being from Andi Dorfman's season. Would anybody have seen that pairing coming? It seems pretty unlikely. Granted many fans were probably hoping that the flames would rekindle between Michelle and Graham, but Reality Steve's spoilers don't indicate anything about that even coming up. Apparently AshLee set her sights on Graham from day one, and Michelle had her focus elsewhere.
This crazy show isn't set up to have “winners” exactly, as there is no cash prize of any kind. That said, fans love a good “Bachelor Nation” romance, and it looks like they have two to keep an eye on post-filming. At this point there isn't any kind of reunion show or anything slated to air, it seems, but if fans embrace the show surely it's something ABC would consider. Fans will definitely want to know as this airs if Marcus and Lacy or Michelle and Cody manage to stick together.
One other fun little tidbit from Reality Steve's spoilers is that Chris Bukowski and Elise Mosca were a couple when they left, a departure that came about due to an injury for Chris. It seems he felt he needed to leave due to a knee injury, and Elise decided to leave with him. Steve says that ABC tried to entice the couple to return to Mexico for the finale and they wanted Bukowski to propose to Mosca. Though this engagement enticement has worked twice before for “Bachelor Pad,” it seems Chris didn't take the bait.
What do you think about the final pairings on this debut season of “Bachelor Pad”? Do you think Marcus and Lacy or Michelle and Cody have a shot at making things last? It all begins on Monday, Aug. 4 when “The Bachelor” and “The Bachelorette” folks head to Mexico to see if they can find love. Chris Harrison claims it “might be the best show we've ever produced,” according to TV Guide, but fans aren't quite ready to believe that one. Will you be tuning in to “Bachelor in Paradise” this summer?
