If the drama on last week’s Bachelor in Paradise season premiere wasn’t enough for you, there’s more craziness ahead when ABC‘s summer reality series returns with back-to-back episodes on Monday, August 8, and Tuesday, August 9. The After Paradise live talk show premieres this week and will air right after Tuesday night’s one-hour show.
Although Chad Johnson was the most talked about contestants on the premiere, Josh Murray’s arrival in Paradise will stir up some big-time drama when he comes face-to-face with his Bachelorette Season 10 (Andi Dorfman) rival, Nick Viall.
Check out ABC’s video preview of this week’s shenanigans below and then read on for the latest Bachelor in Paradise Week 2 spoilers, including information about the three guys who arrive in Paradise this week, the showdown between Josh and Nick, the dates, and the rose ceremony eliminations.
Fifteen single guys and girls arrived in Paradise on Week 1 and by the time the introductions, first dates, Chad Johnson’s antics, and the first rose ceremony came to an end, three contestants left the show leaving room for three more to arrive in Mexico for Week 2.
In addition to Chad Johnson’s departure, Leah Block and Jubilee Sharpe leave without a rose after just one episode of Bachelor in Paradise. The following contestants made it to the second week — Nick Viall, Amanda Stanton, Sarah Herron, twins Haley and Emily Ferguson, Lace Morris, Izzy Goodkind, Carly Waddell, Jared Haibon, Evan Bass, Grant Kemp, Daniel Maguire, and Vinny Ventiera.
According to Reality Steve, three new men will arrive on the second episode and there will be three date cards up for grabs. Christian Bishop (JoJo Fletcher’s season), Brandon Andreen (Des Hartsock’s season), and Josh Murray (winner, Andi Dorfman’s season) will be greeted by host Chris Harrison before the dates and the drama get underway on Monday night.
Josh Murray doesn’t hold back when it comes to getting the girl he wants — Amanda Stanton. The single mom, who was eliminated after hometown dates on Ben Higgins’ season of the Bachelor, seems to be smitten with Nick Viall until Josh arrives and asks her on a date.
ABC’s synopsis of Monday night’s episode states that “one particular bachelor [Nick] in the house is feeling especially annoyed since the aggressive suitor [Josh] basically came in and stole his girl yet again!”
The video above will give fans an idea of how smug Josh is about his conquest. Back in 2013, Bachelorette Andi Dorfman chose Josh over Nick at the final rose ceremony, and it looks like Nick will lose out to Mr. “Steal Your Girl” Murray once again.
There won’t be a bromance brewing between Nick and Josh this season, but spoilers point to Nick being well-liked by Paradise Season 3 contestants as the season progresses — unlike Josh.
According to a previous report from the Inquisitr, Josh will blow up at most of his Paradise co-stars in an upcoming episode after two contestants warn Amanda that Josh may not be there for the right reasons.
The Nick, Josh, and Amanda drama may turn out to be the highlight of the second episode, but there are other dates and two eliminations that will also take place during the back-to-back episodes of Bachelor in Paradise that will air on Monday and Tuesday nights.
In addition to Josh and Amanda’s date, spoilers point to Christian Bishop going on a date with Sarah Heron. Brandon Andreen will head out with one of the Ferguson twins and will end up spending time with both of them by the end of the date.
“[Brandon] asks out one of the twins, and the two go on a romantic dinner date where the girls plan a prank on him!”
Bachelor in Paradise fans can expect to see a “to be continued” at the end of Monday night’s episode, but they won’t have to wait long to find out who goes home at the Week 2 rose ceremony. From Week 2 on, Paradise will air on Monday and Tuesday nights each week right through to the season finale in September.
If you can’t wait to find out who leaves during the rose ceremony this week, spoilers point to Christian Bishop and Brandon Andreen leaving without a rose just one day after arriving in Paradise.
Next week, three new ladies will join the show and one girl will be eliminated during the rose ceremony. Check out the complete Bachelor in Paradise episode schedule here and find out who will be coming and going throughout the six-week season.
