The Bachelor in Paradise season finale is just one week away and Bachelor Nation is already having withdrawals. ABC’s summer reality series filled our Monday and Tuesday nights with the drama that gets everyone buzzing on Twitter and the romantic connections that make us swoon.
Who will break up before the final rose ceremony? Do three couples really get engaged or are the spoilers wrong? And what about the wedding that the show’s creator, Mike Fleiss, hinted about on Twitter? Will fans see one couple get engaged and get married on Bachelor in Paradise season finale?
And then there is the biggest question of the season — are the final three couples still together two months after filming wrapped in Mexico?
While you wait for the two-night Paradise finale to air on September 5 and 6, here’s everything you need to know about the final two episodes, updates on this season’s couples, and a few teaser videos from ABC.
Warning: Bachelor in Paradise Season 3 spoilers ahead.
According to Reality Steve’s spoilers, five couples will make it to the season finale but not all of them will leave the show as a couple. Once again, Chris Harrison will be handing out keys to the Fantasy Suite, but only four of the five couples will take advantage of his offer and spend the night together away from the cameras.
Here’s how it all plays out on the final episode of the season, but don’t let the spoilers stop you from watching the Bachelor in Paradise season finale — there will be plenty of drama that can’t be explained in a spoiler, so chill the wine and tune in at 8 p.m. ET on Tuesday night.
Who breaks up on the season finale?
Ashley Iaconetti finally realized that a friendship with Jared Haibon was better than no relationship at all, so she opened herself up to meeting a new guy. Ashley hits it off with Wells Adams (JoJo’s season) during Week 5 and they carry on their new romance into the final two episodes of the season. However, spoilers indicate that they split up and leave Paradise without spending the night in the Fantasy Suite.
Nick Viall didn’t get much love from fans during his two failed attempts at finding love on The Bachelorette but that changed in Paradise. Juliet Litman from The Ringer says that Nick is “finally likable” this time around, but once again he will find himself single on the BIP season finale.
His fast-moving relationship with Jen Saviano comes to a halt after they spend the night in the Fantasy Suite. Reality Steve attributes their break up to the fact that they live on opposite coasts. Was that the only reason they split? Fans will find out more on the After Paradise live talk show that airs after the finale.
Who gets engaged and are they still together? And wait — is there really a wedding on the Bachelor in Paradise finale?
Josh Murray and Amanda Stanton haven’t been hiding their relationship from anyone since filming wrapped in June. Spoilers indicate that they got engaged on the finale and, according to Us Weekly, Josh and Amanda have confirmed they are living together with Amanda’s two young daughters in her California apartment.
Although Bachelor franchise creator Mike Fleiss recently tweeted that at least one of the couples in Paradise will get married, it’s still not clear if we’ll see the wedding on the finale, on an upcoming ABC special, or if he is just betting that one out of the three couples will eventually get married. That’s why it’s important to watch the finale — producers may have a big surprise in store for viewers.
Carly and Evan didn’t start out with a solid relationship, but if spoilers turn out to be correct, they got engaged at the final rose ceremony that was taped at the end of June.
According to a previous report from the Inquisitr, Evan has been squashing rumors about their relationship on social media, but it’s clear that Carly has been hanging out at his Nashville apartment in recent weeks. Sounds like they are still a couple, but time will tell if they end up getting married.

Lace and Grant have some rocky moments in Week 5, but all spoilers point to the couple getting engaged on the finale. Lace, who currently lives in Denver, tells 303 Magazine that she is no longer working in real estate and has “some opportunities” that she’s excited about in San Francisco. Grant works as a firefighter in the San Francisco area, so perhaps it sounds like they are planning to move in together after the finale airs.
Will any of these couples last? All of the couples were on the show for 18 days or less, so they didn’t have much time to develop a relationship on camera, but it worked out for Jade and Tanner Tolbert, who got engaged on BIP Season 2 and married on an ABC’s Bachelor at 20 special, so never say never.
Watch Bachelor in Paradise on Monday and Tuesday nights at 8 p.m. ET, followed by After Paradise at 9 p.m. ET on Tuesdays.
