Dean Unglert (from Rachel Lindsay’s season of The Bachelorette) and Kristina Schulman (from Nick Viall’s season of The Bachelor) made a fast connection, and so did Taylor Nolan (also from Nick’s season) and Derek Peth (from JoJo Fletcher’s season of The Bachelorette).
There was a first date from hell! Robby Hayes (from JoJo’s season) thought Raven Gates (from Nick’s season) was totally into him but she totally wasn’t (The guy talked about being a social media influencer on their one-on-one date for goodness sakes!).
Raven, though, did make a connection with Ben Zorn (from Kaitlyn Bristowe’s season of The Bachelorette) and even told him his kiss was better than Robby’s. #TheShade
Amanda Stanton (from Ben Higgin’s season of The Bachelor) showed up for her second shot at finding love in Paradise.
Within minutes of meeting each other, Corinne Olympios (from Nick’s season) and DeMario Jackson (from Rachel’s season) were all over one another. Alex Woytkiw (from JoJo’s season) even commentated a portion of their pool sesh (the PG portion, of course).
Jasmine Goode (from Nick’s season) made out with Nick Benvenutti (a.k.a. Saint Nick from JoJo’s season) but ditched Santa for Matt Munson (from Rachel’s season) after Nick had a bit much to drink. Matt and Jasmine even had a steamy hot tub hook up.
Alexis Waters (from Nick’s season) showed up in a shark outfit, again, but she didn’t call it a dolphin costume this time! #Growth
Wells Adams (from JoJo’s season) was introduced as the new bartender, taking the place of good ol’ Jorge Moreno (BIP’s resident bartender).
While Wells can’t participate in the dating aspect of the show, two girls seemed to have an eye on him. Amanda confessed she wished she could have a one-on-one date with him and Wells' longtime friend Danielle Maltby (from Nick’s season) even dropped a slight bomb that she may have a crush on her biffle.
Despite multiple promos claiming that BIP would not only address the scandal that suspended production for nearly two weeks but also break it down, the network played coy about what really happened between Corinne and DeMario, as they simply showed viewers the events that led to the show’s suspension, without showing what actually happened between the two.
And that’s what you missed! Who do you think will find love this season? Sound off in the comments!
