Only two couples left at the end of the two-day final event “Bachelor in Paradise”.
“Put a ring on the messiest, twistiest Paradise finale ever,” ABC teases in one of its latest promos.
WARNING: STOP READING IF YOU DON’T WANT SPOILERS FOR BACHELOR IN PARADISE SEASON 8.
The remaining two pairs are:
“It’s a night of shocking confessions, surprises and special guests as the cast reunites for the first time since Paradise to rehash some of this season’s most dramatic moments,” reads the episode description. The reunion promises to address some of the season’s biggest scandals and love triangles.
Anyone getting engaged? are you still together Here’s what you need to know:
Brandon Jones has made no secret of his plan to get on one knee and propose to longtime girlfriend Serene Russell in the Bachelor in Paradise finale.
A promo for the episode seemingly confirms Reality Steve’s previous reports that the couple are engaged.
“I have undoubtedly the greatest fortune to walk this earth that I have found Serene,” Jones says in the clip. He goes on to tell her, “Serene, I want to start with you forever.”
But that’s not all where the twists end, as host Jesse Palmer asks the happy couple, “Do you want to get married now?”
Do the fiancés decide to hook up before leaving Mexico? Not after Reality Steve.
“On the last day, Jesse told them he was ordained and asked if they wanted to get married there right away.” The blogger tweeted. “So BIP ends on a cliffhanger whether they got married or not. At the reunion they come out and say they didn’t do it, they’re just engaged now.
Victoria Fuller takes the hot seat to address rumors that she is dating Greg Grippo from Katie Thurston’s season of The Bachelorette. The pair were photographed together in Italy, seemingly confirming the end of her relationship with Johnny DePhillip.
If you rewind to Mexico, Fuller and DePhillipo went on their fantasy suite date with a possible engagement on the agenda. While picking out a ring with Bachelor Nation jeweler Neil Lane, he admits, “To be honest, I almost feel like I have to do that now.”
According to Reality Steve, the 26-year-old ends up proposing.
“Obviously I’m nervous, but it’s like taking this leap because so many of you want it and if it has to be with someone, I’m so happy it’s with Victoria,” DePhillip said in a promo.
But fast-forward to the real world and their relationship quickly fell apart.
According to a Twitter thread Reporting on the reunion special, Reality Steve reveals they had a turbulent relationship after returning home and even went to counseling.
Fuller claimed DePhillipo called her “a stupid c***” and admonished her worth as a woman. He denied her allegations but admitted to saying things he now regrets. DePhillipo claimed Fuller threw her wine at him and declared herself out of his league.
At some point, Tyler Norris interjects.
“He said he heard from a reporter that Victoria cheated at a party in LA and that she told everyone she was single.” according to reality Steve. “Victoria walked away and started yelling at Tyler and telling him to shut up and it didn’t affect him.”
It seems likely that DePhillipo is the invisible man that Norris comforts in the preview, saying, “She’ll do anything to make it seem like it’s your fault.” That is her.”
Fuller is expected to confirm her relationship with Grippo, who took part in the taping. The duo spoke before “Bachelor in Paradise” began, but according to Reality Steve, it “wasn’t serious.”
The blogger tweeted, “He had his ex (Clemence) and didn’t leave and she left but she told Johnny about it. He would then see Greg texting her, but she assured him that she and Greg were just friends. Johnny found out about the trip to Italy through social media.”
Fuller and Grippo also revealed they got matching tattoos in Italy, which say “hot” in Italian.
As viewers saw, Danielle Maltby and Michael Allio left Mexico as a couple. The two were still going strong at the time of the reunion, with Maltby revealing plans to get closer to Allio.
“Michael and Danielle are still together. Danielle moves to Ohio but gets her own apartment. You take things slowly” Reality Steve tweeted.
Allio had to face his former flame Sierra Jackson in the taping.
She “spoke to Michael and just said she wished he was straight to her and that it was her that he didn’t feel it with and not that he wasn’t ready.” Reality Steve tweeted. He added, “She said Michael kissed her 3 times after they broke up and felt like there was still a chance. Michael denied doing that.”
However, Allio seems to apologize in the preview. He says, “I’m incredibly sorry I didn’t give you the closure you needed.”
Brittany Galvin and Tyler Norris have been inseparable since they met during the split-week twist. While they left Mexico as a couple, according to Reality Steve, they are no longer together.
“Tyler and Brittany left BIP as a couple and met their families.” revealed the blogger on Twitter. “Tyler was going to a party in LA and asked her to come. She said she couldn’t because she had no money and he offered to pay for her. She said no.”
