This third season of Bachelor In Paradise has started off with a real bang and things got off to a fast start with Chad Johnson and his drama. He will return for week two, but not for a very long amount of time as he’s officially sent packing. Once that episode is over, though, it’s time to prepare for Episode 3 which will take place on August 15, and as if all of these contestants hadn’t already gotten enough chances, one is granted yet another.
Please let it be known that there are possible spoilers ahead for the new and current season of Bachelor in Paradise. If you don’t want to know them, stop reading now.
With the personalities and egos that are in Mexico for this show, anything is possible to happen.

According to Reality Steve, there are three new women joining the show on Episode 3 and they are Ashley Iaconetti, Caila Quinn, and Jen Saviano. All three of them are from Ben Higgins’ season of The Bachelor and Ashley actually appeared on the season of Bachelor In Paradise as well.
The women will ask the men out on dates and it will be up to the men to give out roses at the elimination ceremony.
Even with 10 guys to seven girls, there are only going to be three dates in Episode 3, and they are as follows:
- Ashley with Jared
- Caila with Jared
- Jen with Nick
Not much at all is known about their dates and what is done on them, but it’s not like this show ever reveals much of that anyway. Typically, the dates are put in place and then very little is shown from the date and then it fast-forwards to the end of the date and if there is any chemistry.
Well, it appears as if there isn’t a lot of chemistry and Ashely even has a long “define the relationship” talk with Jared. They realize they’re better off as just friends and nothing more, but that doesn’t bode well for her.
When it comes time for the rose ceremony elimination, the guys are handing out the roses and someone is going to have to go home. Here is how that ceremony will go in Episode 3 and who ends up empty-handed.
- Nick gives his rose to Jen
- Vinny gives his rose to Izzy
- Evan gives his rose to Carly
- Grant gives his rose to Lace
- Josh gives his rose to Amanda
- Daniel gives his rose to Emily and Haley Ferguson
- Jared gives his rose to Caila
Sarah Herron and Ashley Iaconetti are left without roses and are sent home from Mexico. This is where things get weird, though, as Ashley comes back about half an hour later and begs for another chance to stay on the show.
Interestingly enough, Chris Harrison and the show grant her that chance and she’s back in the game.
Back in early July, People reported that Ashley Iaconetti had matched up with the hit show known as Million Dollar Matchmaker known as Patti Stanger to find her true love. Obviously, her time with Ben and multiple chances on Bachelor In Paradise were not enough to get her what she has been searching for.
Stanger mentions the fact that Jared and Ashley are now just friends, but has she given up on being a virgin? A lot is going to tell when that episode does show to the world, but some slight teases were already revealed.
“I found the hottest guy for her. I don’t know, maybe she’s not a virgin after the show. Just saying!”
Season 3 of Bachelor In Paradise has already been quite the trip, and it’s not even halfway over as of yet. These contestants are getting a second and sometimes third chance at love by being allowed back for another go at things. Ashley Iaconetti not only got a third chance by being brought back after her stint with Ben Higgins but even after not receiving a rose in Mexico, she is allowed to stick around.
