‘Bachelor In Paradise’ was seriously awkward! Joe and Samantha post-break up is not a pretty situation, mostly because it’s filled with a lot of lies, covered up with more lies. And yes, a new guy.
Bachelor In Paradise is getting seriously twisted with love
triangles squares. I’ll try to untangle: apparently Joe has texts on his phone from Samantha (who was also texting Nick), saying “Do anything you can to stay until I get there,” which is why he led Juelia on. However, Joe was not happy after being dumped on his birthday, and being made out to look like the only bad guy… so he wants her to admit what she did… and she told the cameras, “We can either be in love & get engaged or you can crash and burn.”
Well, that’s not scary at all… but maybe Samantha’s not so intimate. She had also apparently been talking to Nick for months before coming on, but it was newcomer, Justin who caught her eye. And yes, he’s BFFs with Joe.
Immediately Joe tells Justin not to take her on the date, and even asks to talk him up. It’s really awkward since Justin is attracted to her. When they talk he “gets lost in her eyes” and asks her on a date — and she says yes.
And maybe some people feel bad, but uh, I didn’t. Sorry! Anyways, Samantha pulled Joe to the side afterward to play the game: by telling him that she’s just wants to start with a clean slate. Decoded: she pretty much wanted to keep him hanging on, while she could see if she had more chemistry with anyone else. Here, you see what you think:
Mikey & Juelia Take It To Another Level
Joe screwing Juelia over may have been the best thing that happened to her — since it led her to Mikey. They went on a fun, wrestling-filled date and it honestly turned body slamming to a steamy sleepover. That’s right, Chris Harrison gave them an overnight date (which, is it really necessary when they live together?) and they had that should-we shouldn’t-we stay in the same room talk.
She seemed okay with it, asking him “Would it make you uncomfortable?” And he was honest: “No, because I’m a man.” I love how honest he was! And with that, they stayed together and it was super cute. I’m really hoping this works out — or at least he doesn’t break her heart!
So, what do you think of all this, HollywoodLifers? Do you think Samantha is lying? Do you think Joe and Sam will work out? Let us know.
