Caila Quinn was passed over for the Bachelorette gig just weeks after getting dumped by Bachelor Ben Higgins, but she’s not giving up on love just yet. The 24-year-old Bolly X fitness instructor currently lives in New York City, but she recently took some time away from the Big Apple to film ABC’s summer reality series, Bachelor in Paradise.
Caila is one of 30 former Bachelor and Bachelorette contestants who joined the show hoping to make a love connection — or stir up drama. Although she wasn’t one of the 15 contestants who appeared on the August 2 premiere, Caila will arrive with two other ladies on an upcoming episode, and once again, she won’t have an easy time finding love on TV.
When will Caila show up in Paradise, who will she go on dates with, and will she fall in love? Here’s the scoop on Caila Quinn’s journey to find love in Paradise, one that includes quite a bit of drama.
[Warning — Bachelor in Paradise Season 3 spoilers ahead]
According to Reality Steve, Caila will arrive in Paradise on Week 3 (August 15) along with Jen Saviano (Ben’s season) and Ashley Iaconetti (Chris’ season, Bachelor in Paradise Season 2).
After Caila arrives in Paradise she asks Jared Haibon out on a date. In ABC’s video preview (above) Caila is shown talking about her attraction to Jared, but notes that his connection with Ashley I. is an issue — especially when Ashley asks Jared out later on in the episode.
“It’s very sexy to be in Jared’s arms,” Caila tells producers after her date with Jared. “He’s undeniably hot, but Ashley is not over Jared. She’s still in love with him.”
Of course, Ashley’s date with Jared leads to lots of crying when she tells him that she is “still not ready” to see him with someone else. Ashley then tells producers in an ITM (“In The Moment”) that “Caila ruined everything” and she’s a “backstabbing whore of a friend.”
On the last season of Bachelor in Paradise, People magazine reported that Ashley was willing to lose her virginity to Jared, but after calling Caila a “whore” and crying over her non-relationship with Jared, Ashley will finally realize that she is better off as friends with Jared.
Will it be too late for Caila and Jared?
Spoilers indicate that Jared will give Caila a rose at the Week 3 rose ceremony, but she will go on a date with Brett Melnick (Andi’s season) on Week 4. However, she still has her eye on Jared and she will give him her rose at the rose ceremony.
Although it’s not clear what the drama is, Reality Steve states that at some point during Week 5, Caila will leave the show because the drama in Paradise gets out of control.

Spoilers point to Ashley making a connection with Wells Adams (JoJo’s season), so it doesn’t sound like Ashley is the reason for Caila’s departure. And Jared? He reveals that there isn’t anyone left for him to pursue with Caila gone, so he leaves the show during Week 5 as well.
Whether Jared and Caila will pursue each other outside of the show is still unknown, but rest assured Chris Harrison will find out the latest during one of the upcoming episodes of ABC’s After Paradise talk show, airing Tuesday nights at 9 p.m. ET.
Watch Bachelor in Paradise on Monday nights at 8 p.m. ET, followed by a one-hour show on Tuesday nights at 8 p.m. ET.
