Wells Adams arrives on Bachelor in Paradise this week and Bachelor Nation is all sorts of excited to see the 31-year-old radio host join some of his co-stars from JoJo Fletcher’s season of the Bachelorette for another round of dates and drama.
Who can forget that awkward kiss during Wells’ one-on-one date with JoJo that ended with a one-way ticket home from was applauded by viewers who love his sense of humor? His exit had many fans hoping that he would get a second chance at finding love on TV and, starting with Week 4 (August 22-23), he will grace our TV screens once again.
Who will Wells go on dates with in Paradise, will he find a love connection, and is he one of the five couples who make it to the Bachelor in Paradise season finale? And more importantly, will he be doing his now-famous drunk Snapchat stories (@wellsadams) while he watches himself on Bachelor in Paradise?
[Warning: Bachelor in Paradise Season 3 spoilers ahead]
Wells is the host of two iHeart radio shows in Nashville and, for anyone who is smart enough to follow him on social media, he has a magnificent dog, Carl the Bloodhound, who appears in most of his Snapchat stories.
Although many of his followers were hoping that ABC would consider him to become the next Bachelor, Wells tells the Bustle that it would be “taxing” to hand out roses every week. So, that’s a “no” — but thankfully he’s headed to Paradise.
“I think it would be really hard for me to go in there and every week make a couple people feel bad. Like, that would just be taxing, I think, on my soul as well.”
Perhaps Wells didn’t realize when he signed up for Paradise what a drama-fest it is, but at least he will be surrounded by some of his Bachelorette friends to temper some of the craziness.
When Wells arrives in Paradise on Monday night (August 22), he will find a few familiar faces from the Bachelorette — Evan Bass, Vinny Venteria, Grant Adams, and Daniel Maguire.
According to Reality Steve, Wells will be given a date card when he arrives in Paradise and he chooses to go out with Ashley Iaconetti. It couldn’t be better timing for Ashley who has been crying over Jared Haibon since she arrived in Paradise on Week 3.
If Steve’s spoilers are accurate, Wells is the guy who will finally take Ashley’s mind off Jared. The trailer for the third season of Bachelor in Paradise shows a clip from their date (at the 2:14 minute mark in the video below) Wells goes in for a totally awesome kiss and Ashley reveals that once she met Wells “everything turned around.”
“When I look at his eyes, I feel more chemistry than I ever did with Jared.”
Spoilers indicate that Ashley will give her rose to Wells during the Week 4 rose ceremony, but she may start crying on Week 5 when he gets asked out on not one, but two dates but two girls from Ben Higgins’ season — Jami Letain and Shushanna Mkrtychyan.
However, her panic over losing Wells to the other girls is short-lived — he gives Ashley a rose and both Jami and Shushanna go home without a rose.
The rose secures both Wells and Ashley a spot on the two-night Bachelor in Paradise season finale that airs September 5 and 6. They will join five other couples — Grant and Lace, Josh and Amanda, Nick and Jen, and Evan and Carly — who will all have to decide if they will spend the night in the Fantasy Suite and leave the show as a couple or break up and leave Paradise single.
Spoilers point to an upsetting ending for both Wells and Ashley — one or both of them turn down the key to the Fantasy Suite and they break up before the final rose ceremony.
Fans won’t find out for sure if they reconnected after filming for Paradise wrapped up until the final episode of the After Paradise live talk show airs on September 6. However, according to a previous report from the Inquisitr, Ashley was spotted on a vacation with Jared, her sister Lauren, and Jade and Tanner Tolbert.
Watch ABC’s Bachelor in Paradise on Monday and Tuesday nights at 8 p.m. ET, followed by After Paradise on Tuesdays at 9 p.m. ET.
