‘Bachelor in Paradise’ Drama Alert: AshLee Disses Clare, Marquel Gets Dumped [Video]

Bachelor in Paradise is must-see TV this week, with plenty of fighting and crying in store for viewers. The two night event on ABC starts with Episode 4 on Monday, August 25, and the sneak peek video reveals that AshLee Frazier will play a major role in creating most of the drama and Marquel will lose out on love.

AshLee does her best to talk Zach out of dating Clare, calling her “cuckoo” and warning him about her past fling in the ocean with “Bachelor” Juan Pablo. It is not clear why AshLee throws Clare under the proverbial bus, but ABC reveals that a major fight ensues between the two women shortly before the rose ceremony.

Zach considers dating other women after talking to AshLee, but he still accepts Clare’s rose, more than likely so he will have more time in Tulum. Will this couple be one of the two couples who find love on Bachelor in Paradise? According to Reality Steve, no. He reports that their relationship will not last through the next episode that airs on Tuesday night. Viewers will reportedly see Clare storm off the show when Zach reveals he doesn’t have long-term feelings for her.

Things go just as poorly for fan favorite, Marquel Martin on Monday night. After ditching Michelle Money and moving on to Jackie Parr last week, it appeared that Marquel was finally on the road to finding love. After a great date with Jackie last week, she ends up breaking Marquel’s heart and going on a date with newcomer and rumored bad-boy, Jesse Kovaks.

Jesse, who appeared on The Bachelorette Season 5 and the first season of The Bachelor Pad asks Jackie out on a date, leaving Marquel wondering how interested she really is in their new-found relationship. Jesse charms her into thinking he’s there for the right reasons and she proceeds to break Marquel’s heart at the rose ceremony.

Will Marquel’s fans see him on TV as ABC’s next leading man on the next season of The Bachelor? Reality Steve states that it won’t happen, confirming that Iowa farmer Chris Soules inked the deal several weeks ago.

Tune in to watch two nights of drama this week. Bachelor in Paradise Episode 4 airs at 8 p.m. on Monday, August 25, followed by Episode 5 at the same time on Tuesday, August 26.
