By the time it gets to the end of Episode 5 of Bachelor In Paradise, pretty much everything that is going to happen must happen. New cast mates are still going to be arriving in Mexico and there will be one more rose ceremony elimination, but by the time it’s all over, there will be just five couples remaining. The drama will continue, and people are going to start leaving on their own as they’re simply sick of it all.
Spoiler alert: Please let it be known that there are possible spoilers ahead for the new and upcoming season of Bachelor in Paradise. If you don’t want to know them, stop reading now.

If all goes as it should in Episode 4, there will be a number of people going home in a double rose ceremony elimination. By the time the fifth episode begins, there will be seven women remaining and seven men, with four new women joining the show, all from Ben Higgins’ season.
- Tiara Soleim
- Shushanna Mkrtychyan
- Jami Letain
- Lauren Himle
Reality Steve is reporting that three dates will take place in Episode 5 with one of them being a double — Shushanna and Lauren with Wells and Brett. Jami will also go out on a date with Wells while Tiara is set to ask someone out, but she chooses not to do so.
Tiara gives her date card to Nick and he takes out Jen as expected.
Throughout the episode, there will be a number of people who just decide to leave on their own without even being eliminated. Caila Quinn thinks that the drama on the show is simply too much and she is just ready to leave. As she takes off, Jared Haibon leaves right with her because they’ve been a bit of a couple for some time now.

For those wondering, this will be the very last time that Jared will be seen. Well, it will be the last time he’ll be seen in the Bachelor franchise of any kind as he told Glamour that he’s just totally done with it.
Izzy will also end up leaving before the rose ceremony elimination and so does one other person. Shushanna ends up leaving while the cocktail party is going on, and that’s due to her feeling it is just too stupid. Honestly, it’s being said that she really does lose control and go off on anyone and everyone around her.
After all that, it’s time for the final roses to be handed out, and Brett chooses not to give his out at all so he leaves. Lauren, Tiara, and Jami don’t give roses so they have to leave as well.
That ends up leading to the final five couples who will appear in the season finale to see if their true love has been found. Those couples are:
- Nick and Jen
- Wells and Ashley
- Grant and Lace
- Josh and Amanda
- Evan and Carly
ABC loves to move things around and do some interesting editing to screw up the spoiler sites that reported them. By this time, though, it’s likely that everything reported up to this point will have happened as the only remaining episode of BIP is the season finale.
After next week, there will be just one episode remaining for the 2016 season of Bachelor In Paradise. Only five couples are left, but will all of them end up staying together once everything is over? With some cast mates leaving on their own, it’s hard to think that anyone could find true love in such a short amount of time, but there are some people who believe they’ve made their matches.
