The two-night Bachelor in Paradise Season 3 finale will be two of the most talked-about episodes in the history of ABC‘s popular summer reality series. Back-to-back episodes will air on Monday, September 5 and Tuesday, September 6, followed by the live After Paradise talk show that will feature the couples who got engaged, broke up, and one couple who may have tied the knot at the final rose ceremony.
Before the final couples choose to hand out their final rose — or an engagement ring — six contestants will leave Paradise single, but two of them won’t leave by choice. Instead, they will walk away with a broken heart after making it to the final episode of the season.
Who are the six contestants who leave before the final rose ceremony and which couples will leave Paradise together as a couple? Here’s a look ahead at what to expect during the final two episodes of the season.
[Warning: Bachelor in Paradise Season 3 spoilers ahead]
The season started off with 15 contestants but weekly arrivals brought that number to 30 guys and girls who arrived in Paradise hoping to find love. Just 16 contestants remain on Monday night and, by the end of the first night of the two-part finale, only 10 will remain.
If you need a refresher, here are the contestants who will appear on Monday night’s show: Izzy, Shushanna, Grant, Lace, Brett, Nick, Jen, Evan, Carly, Josh, Amanda, Wells, Ashley, Tiara, Lauren, and Jami.
There will be one rose ceremony on Monday night before the finale rose ceremony airs on Tuesday. Reality Steve‘s spoilers indicate that Shushanna will leave before the rose ceremony “in a huff” because she couldn’t deal with the drama and Izzy will leave as well.
Apparently, Izzy didn’t hit it off with Brett after all — perhaps she should have stayed with Vinny? According to a previous report from the Inquisitr, Vinny and Izzy have been spotted out together since filming wrapped, so fans are still holding out hope for Team Vizzy.
During the rose ceremony, Brett decides that he doesn’t want to give his rose to anyone and leaves Paradise. If he stayed, one of the girls who is not coupled up — Tiara, Lauren, and Jami — would have made it to Tuesday night’s finale with him, but that doesn’t happen.
All three girls leave because they don’t get a rose, but here’s a list of the couples who do hand out roses — otherwise known as the final five couples on this season of Bachelor in Paradise.
- Josh gives his rose to Amanda
- Wells gives his rose to Ashley
- Grant gives his rose to Lace
- Evan gives his rose to Carly
- Nick gives his rose to Jen
The outcome of this season has been spoiled by many of the final contestants, but there has been no bigger spoiler than last week’s announcement on ABC’s After Paradise that Nick Viall is the next Bachelor. He admitted during the live show that he (obviously) doesn’t leave Paradise with Jen, but many fans are curious to find out how she reacted to the breakup considering they are rumored to spend the night in the Fantasy Suite before they split.
Wells and Ashley didn’t give away the ending when they appeared on After Paradise last week, but spoilers indicate that they broke up during the final episode after turning down a key to the Fantasy Suite.
Josh Murray and Amanda Stanton told Us Weekly that they are now living together in California with Amanda’s daughters, so it won’t be a surprise when Josh proposes at the final rose ceremony.
Reality Steve reported that Lace and Grant got matching “Grace” tattoos on their last day in Paradise and got engaged at the final rose ceremony. Will they last? According to a previous report from the Inquisitr, Lace has revealed that she’s moving to San Francisco, so it sounds like things are moving forward — for now.
Watch the two-night Bachelor in Paradise season finale on September 5 and 6 at 8 p.m., followed by After Paradise at 9 p.m. on Tuesday night.
