GRAND RAPIDS, Mich. (WOTV) This summer, 25 of “The Bachelor’s” biggest stars and most controversial contestants are back looking for a second chance at love on “Bachelor in Paradise.” They all left “The Bachelor” or “The Bachelorette” with broken hearts, but now they are back to find their soul mates. However, in true “Bachelor” fashion, there is always a surprise.
This week, a shocking exit reveals an outside relationship, as one of the bachelors has a secret girlfriend back home. Plus, a surprise addition adds heat to the mix when two new bachelors join “Bachelor in Paradise”, on Monday, August 11 at 8:00 p.m.
After last week’s dramatic rose ceremony, the cast said adios to Daniella, who did not receive a rose and Michelle K., who decided to remove herself from paradise. However, in a shocking twist, Chris Harrison reveals that an illicit hookup between Michelle K. and a crew member took place following her exit, in undoubtedly the most bizarre scandal in “Bachelor” history.
As the week begins, two new bachelors arrive at Papaya Playa Project in Tulum, Mexico with date cards in hand. After feeling like a default choice at the last ceremony, a disheartened Clare is eager to make a romantic connection and is relieved when the first new arrival asks her to be his date. Together, the two head for a couple massage on the beach. Meanwhile, Lacy and Marcus’ relationship begins to blossom as they enjoy a dreamy dinner date at the exotic eco-archeological park. However, their new-found connection upsets a jealous Robert, who Lacy invited on a date last week. For Dylan, having his heart recently broken on “The Bachelorette,” he finds that the woman he’s been spending time with, Elise, is moving way too fast. Elise attempts to make him jealous with a new bachelor but her plan backfires.
Later, the second bachelor to arrive asks Clare out to explore the fun and eclectic Tulum Village, where he makes her feel like he is everything she’s been wanting. Another date card arrives for Dylan, but the woman he chooses to invite causes some drama amongst the others. As the week comes to a close, the cast is shocked when they discover that one deceitful bachelor has been lying to everyone and has a girlfriend back home! Then, as the cast heads to the beautiful Casa Palapa for the rose ceremony, one woman’s decision leaves everyone talking. And for the first time in “Bachelor in Paradise” history, someone rejects a rose.
