Season 3 of Bachelor in Paradise is now officially halfway over, and ABC is doing whatever they possibly can to prove the spoiler sites wrong. While their clever editing work may move things around, the spoilers usually turn out to be correct in the end, and that is how the final five couples are now known. Some things to wonder about, though, are which couples get engaged in the season finale and which are still together now.
Spoiler alert: 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.
New men and women will still be arriving in Mexico, but rose ceremony eliminations are going to have the total number dwindle down to just 10 total people by the season finale. Five men and five women will be partnered up for the final dates, but who stays together after it all?

As reported by Reality Steve, the five couples that make it to the season finale will sit down with Chris Harrison as he tells him how things will go. They must recognize if they are serious about the other person and truly want to be with them after such a short period of time.
The final five couples are:
- Josh Murray and Amanda Stanton
- Wells Adams and Ashley Iaconetti
- Nick Viall and Jen Saviano
- Grant Kemp and Lace Morris
- Evan Bass and Carly Waddell
Almost right away, Wells realizes that he doesn’t feel strongly enough about Ashley, and he breaks up with her. They don’t end up getting an overnight date and are sent home, but it seems that some feelings may still be there since the show ended if Ashley’s Twitter account is any indication.
The other four couples will get overnight dates, but Nick and Jen eventually do break up on the show as well. It appears they had a mutual split, and there are no hard feelings on either side toward one another.
As for the other three couples, they all end up getting engaged. As the Inquisitr recently reported, creator Mike Fleiss even confirmed “multiple engagements.” The three couples are truly attached by the end of the season finale, but are they still together?

Grant and Lace had a very interesting overnight night, which will see them get matching “Grace” tattoos. The tattoo can obviously be seen to have a religious meaning, but it is also a combination of their two names and is quite out there, even for them.
Earlier this month, that couple was spotted out together and hanging poolside in Colorado so they essentially spoiled it for anyone that saw then. ABC is probably still not overly pleased with the fact that they were spotted out together in public, but they aren’t the only ones.

Earlier this month as well, TMZ reported that Josh Murray and Amanda Stanton were caught with her children at the fair. The couple is already going out together as a family, and they seem to be happy, so things are going well for them.
The third couple that will end up engaged is Evan Bass and Carly Waddell, who have not been seen in public together, but they are playing up the game. On social media, they have been very careful not to give too much information while also only admitting as much as has been shown on episodes of the show so far.

Some speculation has been going around that Evan and Carly have already split up, but it could be that they are merely playing the game very well.
Bachelor in Paradise will indeed end with five couples in the season finale, but only three of them will stay together. Those three couples — Grant and Lace, Josh and Amanda, Evan and Carly — will go on to become engaged by the end of that episode. While some things may show that they’re still together now, three more weeks need to go by before they can be revealed, and anything is possible to happen in that amount of time.
