Amanda Stanton didn’t find love with Bachelor Ben Higgins but the single mom of two will be one of the most pursued contestants on the upcoming season of Bachelor in Paradise.
The third season of ABC’s popular summer reality show premieres on Tuesday, August 2 with 30 former Bachelor and Bachelorette contestants hoping to find a love connection amidst the drama.

Like many Bachelor franchise stars, Amanda doesn’t hold back when it comes to posting about her personal life on social media. This week she dropped a major hint about her relationship with Josh Murray, who is rumored to have swept her off her feet in Paradise.
Did Amanda end her relationship with Josh after taping wrapped up in Paradise finale, or is the gossip about the couple’s TV wedding true? Here’s the latest scoop about Amanda and Josh’s relationship, one that she was warned about by two close friends.
Amanda Stanton, 26, is one of 15 girls and guys who will appear on the premiere, with 15 additional contestants arriving throughout the season.
According to Reality Steve, Amanda will snag a date with Nick Viall on the first episode, but will quickly ditch him when Josh Murray, Nick’s rival from Bachelorette Andi Dorfman’s season, arrives on Episode 2 (August 9).
Despite warnings from her friends about Josh’s temper, the couple is rumored to be inseparable after their first date in Paradise. Reality Steve states that Amanda and Josh spent “every minute together” after Josh’s arrival and are this season’s “power couple.”
“If you feel with all your heart that something is right, it probably is.”
Still together and happy with her decision, relationship over because it wasn’t as good off camera as it was on, or is it just a quote to get fans thinking?
Considering Amanda follows Josh Murray’s mother, Lauren Murray, on Twitter, there is a good chance that quote means she made the right decision when she said “Yes” to Josh’s proposal on the Bachelor in Paradise when the season finale was taped.
Reality Steve‘s spoilers indicate that Josh and Amanda weren’t the only ones to get engaged in Paradise. Evan Bass and Carly Waddell, and Grant Kemp and Lace Morris also left Mexico engaged, but there is speculation that fans will see Josh and Amanda get married on the Paradise finale that airs in September.
To add to the rumors about an season finale wedding, Josh has been tweeting about his road trip to California this week and he has his dog, Sabel, with him — perhaps it’s time to introduce Sabel to Amanda’s daughters?
While there is no doubt that many of the Bachelor in Paradise stars will be out in L.A. this week to meet up for a premiere night get-together, Amanda and her two children live in Orange County, less than an hour from Los Angeles.
The outcome of Amanda and Josh’s relationship won’t be confirmed until the Bachelor in Paradise season finale airs in September and fans can expect to see Chris Harrison talk to them on an upcoming episode of ABC’s live After Paradise talk show.
Will Josh find his happily-ever-after with Amanda? Are they married and now preparing to live together with Amanda’s daughters? Or will their relationship fizzle out like so many Bachelor franchise relationships do?
The answer is just a few weeks away, so chill the wine and get ready to watch a dramatic season of Bachelor in Paradise starting Tuesday, August 2 at 8 p.m. ET on ABC.
