A lot of people don't want to be spoiled for reality shows that tape months in advance, but it's kind of hard to keep things a secret in the internet age. It's even hard to keep things a secret if you're on Bachelor in Paradise and that's exactly what has happened. Two couples who will get engaged at the end of Season 3 have been spotted out and about in the past week, and it has kind of spoiled everything.
Please let it be known that there are possible spoilers ahead for the current season of Bachelor in Paradise. If you don't want to know them, stop reading now.
Show creator Mike Fleiss tweeted out a few weeks ago that there would indeed be "multiple engagements" on this season of the hit reality series. Of course, he wasn't going to spoil things for his own show, but the news got out there, and all three of those couples were eventually revealed.
As previously reported by Inquisitr, one of those engaged couples happens to be Grant Kemp and Lace Morris. Fans may remember Lace as the villain on Ben Higgins' season and Grant from JoJo Fletcher's season of The Bachelorette.
Taping may be over, but they certainly aren't trying to keep things much of a secret.

TMZ reported the other day that Lace and Grant were spotted hanging out together a couple of days before the premiere of the show. That is a major "no-no" with ABC as they want couples to stay away from one another after taping has ended and until the season premiere airs for the world to see.
The report states that Lace and Grant were hanging out by the pool in an apartment complex in Denver, Colorado. Grant apparently flew there to visit his bride-to-be, and of course, they were spotted and photographed by people who happened to be at the pool that day.
Obviously, this is not going to sit well with the producers of the series, and things got even worse this past weekend when another couple was spotted out together.

Yes, TMZ also happened to get word that another engaged couple from Season 3 of Bachelor in Paradise was spotted out together. Josh Murray and Amanda Stanton were seen this past Thursday night going out together as a family to the Orange County Fair.
Josh and Amanda headed out with her two kids to spend some quality time together, and word is that they are going to end up buying a house in Atlanta. The problem here is that they, like Grant and Lace, know they aren't supposed to show the world they are together yet.
So far, that leaves just Evan Bass and Carly Waddell as the lone remaining couple to not be spotted in public together. After reports have gotten out about the other two being seen and ABC possibly coming down on them, they may do best at just living alone for another month.
@TMZ ur a buzz killer for exposing Grant and Lace on @BachParadise some of us actually want to watch the show and find out ourselves..xo

It may be needless to say, but many fans of the show like to avoid spoilers and aren't thrilled with sites such as TMZ spoiling which couple or couples are still together. They don't really give much of a spoiler warning with their articles.
ABC will always release previews of each week's episode, but they avoid spoiling serious plot points and twists at all times.
Bachelor in Paradise is one of those shows that a lot of people think won't bring true love and romance, but sometimes it does. Unfortunately for ABC, they have to work with taping the series well in advance and then requiring adults to stay out of the public eye together, which is a hard thing to do. The thing is, Lace Morris and Grant Kemp likely signed a contract saying they would do just that, and this could come back to bite them.
