‘Bachelor in Paradise’ picked up right where last week left off — with Evan interrupting Amanda’s date with Josh mid-makeout, to ask her on a date. The shocker? She said yes.
Amanda couldn’t have actually been nicer to Evan. Not only did she come over and chat with him, she told him that she was really impressed with him but he was a little too late — and she wanted to focus on Josh. She cried because she felt so bad, which is really sad — and he somehow took that as a glimmer of hope. Well, that’s awkward. Josh really couldn’t have cared less, because well… pizza. Anyways, on to the rose ceremony (is it still called that on this?)
Evan didn’t really let it go though; before the roses were handed out, he grabbed Amanda from (a very sweaty) Josh again to warn her about Andi Dorfman‘s book that claimed Josh is verbally abusive. Naturally, Josh found out about their talk and approached him. Basically, Evan just kept telling him he seemed “polished.” Josh told him the book was “a fictional story.” Nick also took the chance to warn Amanda but definitely seemed more positive than Evan — he literally just told her to ask the right questions.
Lace chose Grant; Izzy chose Vinny; Emily chose Jared; Amanda chose Josh; Sarah chose Daniel; Carly chose Evan(platonic only!); and Haley chose Nick (because he deserves love!). Yup, that meant that Brandon and Christian were sent packing.
But the next day changed everything: Caila arrived. She immediately clicked with Jared and chose him for the date. Naturally, he was a gentleman and told Emily he felt he should go. Naturally, he had a great time with Caila — they went horseback riding and made out on the beach. When he got back, he was honest with Emily and while he couldn’t be more sweet, Emily was still heartbroken.
Grant, Lace, Izzy and Vinny got the first double date night out, went to a foam party, and nearly got into a fight. Meanwhile, Sarah and Carly invited Daniel and Evan over for drinking games. Evan still really liked her and totally went in for a kiss and was shot down — but he was clearly more drunk than we knew! They ended up calling medical because he wouldn’t wake up; but when Carly got there, he was fine… and ended up hitting on her. Oh and it worked. Confused? Me too.
This week’s episode ended with Jared and Caila playing a flirty game of poker… And Ashley I. returned because she was still in love with Jared. She said they have kissed, but she never told him she was coming. So naturally we’ll see that all go down tomorrow night.
