  • Alex Bordyukov is a contestant on season 8 of ‘Bachelor in Paradise.’
  • He was brought onto the show during week three when the original men and women were separated to see if they’d make connections with any new arrivals
  • Alex hit it off with Victoria Fuller during split week and they went on a one-on-one date.
  • He was previously on Rachel Lindsay’s season of ‘The Bachelorette.’

Alex Bordyukov went on a date with Victoria Fuller during the Oct. 24 episode of Bachelor in Paradise. Although Victoria was hesitant about forming a connection with anyone due to her relationship with Johnny DePhillipo, she decided to give it a shot with Alex. Victoria and Johnny were separated during split week, which is when she opted to take Alex on a date, and they connected on many levels.

It’s been quite a while since Bachelor Nation has seen Alex, and he made it clear that he’s looking for something serious out of his time on BIP. Considering Victoria also admitted to wanting kids sooner rather than later, she was glad that they were on the same page about the future. During the Oct. 25 episode, Victoria will have to face Johnny for the first time after her date with Alex. Ahead of the drama-filled episode, learn more about Alex below.

1. What Happened To Alex on ‘The Bachelorette’?

Alex was on The Bachelorette back in 2017 for the show’s 13th season. He dated Rachel Lindsay on the show. Alex received a group date rose during week three. However, he never earned a one-on-one date with Rachel. Despite not having much alone time with the Bachelorette, Alex still made it to week six before he was eliminated. He was then on season two of Bachelor in Paradise Australia in 2019, as well as season 1 of Bachelor in Paradise Canada in 2021.

2. Alex Dated Bachelor Nation’s Caroline Lunny

On Bachelor in Paradise Australia, Alex was one of the first arrivals on the beach. He initially connected with Brooke Blurton, but she left the show during week 6. Caroline Lunny, who was on Arie Luyendyk’s season of The Bachelor (US), arrived during week 7, and she and Alex hit it off. They decided to leave the show as a couple before the final rose ceremony. Although they dated for a few months, they eventually split. “We ultimately decided we weren’t going to pursue it,” he told MammaMia in 2019. “We still maintain a friendship, we speak on a weekly basis, but there’s no more romantic involvement.”
