Three Bachelor in Paradise contestants are already back on social media as they have apparently left Mexico mid-season. Filming for BiP is still currently underway at the Playa Escondida Resort, but the trip is over for at least three men so far.
Bachelor in Paradise loosely follows the same layout of The Bachelor and The Bachelorette. As weeks go by, contestants are eliminated and sent home. Paradise puts a spin on those rules as each week the power shifts between genders. Women give out roses one week, and the men hold the power the following week. For this current season, it appears as if the women were the ones handing out the roses during Week 1, as three male contestants are already back in the states.
Fan-favorite Vinny Ventiera has already created a lengthy story on Instagram of his travels back to the U.S. from Mexico, as reported by Entertainment Tonight. The 28-year-old also posted a quick photo of his plane leaving Mexico. Vinny appeared last season on BiP, where he fell head over heels for Izzy Goodkind. The relationship seemed to be one of the strongest of the season, but it was too good to be true, as she left Vinny for a shot with Brett Melnick — the weird lamp guy.
It looks like things didn’t work the second time around for Vinny, but he wasn’t the only one to get the boot. His Instagram story showed him sitting with another contestant who is also reportedly off the show as well. Iggy Rodriguez — who was recently eliminated from Rachel’s current season of The Bachelorette — joined his new bro on the flight home. Iggy also shared their plane ride on his Instagram story where the two appeared to be close friends.
It's so hard to express the gratitude I have for my experience during my time on the @bacheloretteabc. I didn't expect it to end having met an incredible woman in @therachlindsay, friends for a lifetime and a new perspective on the person I aspire to be…but here we are weeks later with all of the above. I want to say thank you to everyone who reached out with kind words, each and every comment was recognized and appreciated. I'd also like to thank the incredible team that supports us behind the scenes, @theyearofelan and the rest of the producers work tirelessly to curate the most fun environment I've ever been in. Lastly, to all my new brothers…it was an honor to have met all of you and I can't wait until we get to do it again soon! #thebachelorette #roseboys #s13
People reports that Iggy and Vinny flew to Boca Raton for a club appearance alongside Josiah Graham, also from Rachel’s current season. Another contestant who documented his trip home from Mexico was Alex Woytkiw. The contestant from JoJo’s season shared views from his plane’s window yesterday, as well as being stuck in LA traffic soon after.
Production for Season 4 is still underway, and fans can expect to see some lady contestants get the boot in the upcoming week.
