Jared Haibon was heartbroken when Bachelorette Kaitlyn Bristowe dumped him, but the “Love Man” may mend his broken heart on Bachelor in Paradise. Since his arrival in Paradise last week, he’s been getting plenty of attention from the ladies on ABC’s reality show, but Jared’s journey to find love is about to get ugly — or at least prompt some more ugly crying from Ashley Iaconetti.
On the season premiere, Ashley Iaconetti make Jared her own, but even after going on a date, the couple had little or no chemistry. Now that Clare Crawley has joined the cast, expect Ashley’s cry-count to go sky high.

Last week, Jared told Clare that he would give her his rose if she didn’t get one. That would have been devastating news for Ashley I. to find out that he had eyes on another girl in Paradise.
Fortunately for Ashley, Mikey Tenerelli saved the day and gave Clare a rose, but Jared didn’t look all that thrilled to have to give his rose to Ashley who was obviously his default choice.

Things heat up on Sunday night when week two kicks off with the guys asking the girls on dates. Ashley will have an epic meltdown when Jared asks Clare on a date. Even worse? They kiss — something he didn’t do with Ashley on their date last week.

In Ashley’s recap in Cosmopolitan, she writes that although her off-roading date was “awesome” the fireworks were not going off.
“Jared and I had an awesome date off-roading though. Were fireworks going off? No. Was the chemistry of the charts? Not really. But we definitely formed a good friendship, and that was a fine start for me; I thought we’d have a lot of time to develop things further.”
Ashley’s jealousy over Clare’s connection with Jared Haibon may be short-lived and fans may see her shedding a few less tears over the next few weeks. According to Reality Steve, Jared will accept Ashley’s rose at the rose ceremony this week and Clare will give her rose to JJ Lane. Apparently the date didn’t go as well as the previews show, or Clare just isn’t interested in dating a younger man.
Tune in to watch the Bachelor in Paradise drama, including more of Ashley I. crying, at 8 p.m. ET/PT on Sunday and Monday nights.
