Fans of Bachelor in Paradise watched as Chris Bukowski and Elise Mosca left episode 3 together. Everybody was anxious to hear if they were still together, as they certainly seemed open to giving a relationship a try as they left. Unfortunately Reality Steve's spoilers had already indicated they had split, and now Bukowski is sharing a bit more about what happened.
Though Reality Steve's Bachelor in Paradise spoilers had long ago indicated that Chris and Elise had broken up, he reiterated it Monday night via Twitter as the show aired. How long did they last? What went wrong? Granted most fans familiar with both Bukowski and Mosca didn't necessarily place any bets on this one going the distance, but many are curious regardless.
Chris Bukowski tells Cupid's Pulse that Elise stayed with him in Chicago for almost a week after they left Mexico. The two dated for a month after that, but Chris says, "I broke it off because we were at two very different points in our lives." Granted many Bachelor in Paradise fans probably already picked up on that given that Elise seemed ready to name their children just hours after first hooking up with him and Chris seemed focused on other aspects of their connection.
Bukowski adds, "I wasn't confident that Elise was the right girl for me and didn't want to lead her on to believe anything different." That said, Chris says that he believes she's a "nice, genuine girl" who is "only crazy about falling in love." An Instagram post from Chris indicates that Elise even met his parents, but apparently it just wasn't meant to be. Bukowski does have a bit of a reputation for not being terribly serious about commitment, and Elise made it clear she's looking for that, so it does indeed seem that these two are in very different places in life right now.
Reality Steve's spoilers had previously indicated that producers for Bachelor in Paradise initially tried to get Chris to propose to Elise on the finale, flying them back down to Mexico to capture it on camera. Chris declined, but Bachelor in Paradise spoilers from Reality Steve indicate that another couple did take producers up on the offer.
Will there be any more surprising hook-ups or eliminations going forward? From the sounds of the Bachelor in Paradise spoilers available for the next episodes, there is plenty more drama in store. Fans will get a double dose of the show in the coming week, as episode 4 airs on Monday and episode 5 airs on Tuesday. Were you surprised to hear that Chris Bukowski and Elise Mosca had split already? Which couples are you rooting for this season? New episodes of Bachelor in Paradise air on ABC on Aug. 25 and 26.
