Thirty former Bachelor and Bachelorette contestants are trying to make a love connection on the third season Bachelor in Paradise, but the six-week season will end with only three girls and three guys walking away from Mexico’s Playa Escondida resort in a relationship.
ABC‘s popular summer reality series ends on September 6, but before the finale, more contestants will arrive in Paradise, several couples will break up, and a number of singles will find themselves without a rose at the upcoming rose ceremonies.
Here’s a look ahead at the episode-by-episode rose ceremony eliminations for the remainder of the season, starting with Week 3 (August 15 – 16) and ending with the two-night Bachelor in Paradise season finale (September 5 – 6).
Warning: Bachelor in Paradise Season 3 spoilers ahead
In host Chris Harrison’s Yahoo! blog, he states that the season started out rockier than expected when Chad Johnson spiraled out of control, but he promised that fans would see several love stories unfold on the third season of Paradise.
Several couples connected early-on in the season including Vinnie and Izzy, Amanda and Josh, and Lace and Grant. As new contestants come and go, several new relationships will form in the coming weeks, but not all of them will find their happily-ever-after. Here’s what to expect from Week 3 on.
Week 3 – August 15 – 16
Izzy, Emily, Haley, Lace, Amanda, Carly, Sarah, Grant, Evan, Nick, Josh, Vinny, Brandon, Christian, Daniel, and Jared all received roses last week. Reality Steve‘s spoilers reveal that the 14 guys and girls who made it to Week 3 will be joined by newcomers Jen Saviano, Caila Quinn, and Ashley Iaconetti.
Jared will go on two dates this week — one with Caila and one with Ashley. According to a previous report from the Inquisitr, Ashley will have a meltdown when she sees Caila with Jared. Nick Viall will also get a date this week (Jen Saviano) and move on from the Amanda and Josh drama.
Two men will be eliminated on Monday night’s episode — Brandon and Christian. The next rose ceremony may take place on Tuesday night’s episode or ABC may hold it over until the following week. Whenever it airs, Sarah Herron is the next person to be eliminated at the rose ceremony. Reality Steve states that Ashley will leave on her own during the rose ceremony but will return shortly after her emotional departure.
Week 4 — August 22 – 23
Four men will arrive in Paradise this week, bringing the contestant count to 20. Wells Adams (JoJo’s season), Ryan Beckett (Kaitlyn’s season) and two guys from Andi’s season — Carl King and Brett Melnick, arrive in Paradise on Week 4.
There will be four dates this week — Wells and Ashley, Ryan and Haley, Carl and Emily, and Brett and Caila.
According to a previous report from the Inquisitr, Haley and Emily warn Amanda about Josh and then eliminate themselves from the show. Vinny also leaves before the rose ceremony because Izzy doesn’t seem as interested in him as she was early-on in the season.
Daniel, Ryan, and Carl don’t get roses so they are eliminated on Week 4.
Week 5 — August 29 – 30
Just one week before the Bachelor in Paradise season finale, four more ladies arrive in Paradise and they are all from Bachelor Ben Higgins’ season — Jami Letain, Tiara Soleim, Lauren Himle, and Shushanna Mkrtychyan.
There are several dates this week — Shushanna and Wells, Lauren and Brett, Jami and Wells, and Nick and Jen.
It’s a pivotal week for many couples including Jared and Caila who started their relationship on Week 3. Reality Steve states that Caila leaves before the rose ceremony because there is too much drama and Jared leaves as well because there’s no one left to date.
“Caila decides to leave because she doesn’t like all the drama going on, and Jared leaves with her since there’s no one else he’s interested in. I’m hearing these two are going to try to date in the real world, but it’s probably not going to last since I’m hearing Caila really isn’t all that interested in him.”
Two other contestants will also leave before the rose ceremony — Izzy and Shushanna. Lauren, Tiara, and Jami don’t get roses and leave Paradise the same week they arrived, and Brett will leave after he chooses not to give out his rose.
Episode 6 – Season Finale – September 5 – 6
Bachelor in Paradise runs for six weeks, but ABC has yet to release a confirmed finale date. Keep in mind, Labor Day is September 5, the network may announce a date change for the season finale in the coming weeks.
Spoilers reveal that five couples will make it to the season finale — Carly and Evan, Ashley and Wells, Amanda and Josh, Lace and Grant, and Jen and Nick.
Spoilers reveal that Ashley and Wells, and Jen and Nick break up on the finale. However, there will be several love stories this season with Bachelor franchise creator Mike Fleiss hinting on Twitter that there will be at least one wedding this season.
The remaining three couples — Lace and Grant, Carly and Evan, and Amanda and Josh, are rumored to get engaged at the final rose ceremony. According to a previous report from the Inquisitr, at least two couples are still together since filming wrapped in June.
