Scoop: New Bachelor Creates Tension on Penultimate BACHELOR IN PARADISE
The remaining contestants are still recovering from a very dramatic week, but with their stay in paradise coming to an end, they all want to make the most of the time they have left. Marcus receives a date card and decides to continue investing all his time in Lacy, so the two head to the enchanting Cenote Dos Ojos. Michelle M on the other hand is overwhelmed and wonders if she should break things off with the fast-moving Cody.
Sarah is excited when new bachelor Brooks Forester arrives in Paradise, which causes her to question her relationship with Robert. Sadly, Brooks swoops in and asks Jackie out on a date, even though she's been cozying up to Zack. Jackie surprisingly accepts and the two enjoy a dinner date at the lively Casa Banana in Tulum, leaving Zack jealous. The tables are turned, however, when Zack receives his date card and takes Jackie to the majestic Gran Cenote. The two enjoy a romantic swim and Zack makes it known that he's not going to let Jackie go without a fight. Meanwhile, Christy is upset when she learns that her love-interest, Jesse, has been hooking up with another woman. Feeling betrayed, Christy closes in on the newest bachelor to arrive, Tasos Hernandez, and the two go on a romantic date floating down the mangroves at the Sian Ka'an Nature Reserve.
The night of the rose ceremony, the cast gathers at the elegant Casa Palapa, where six women will each hand out a rose, meaning two men will be going home unlucky in love. The heat is on when Jackie has to choose between Brooks and Zack and Christy has to choose between the sweet new bachelor Tasos, and the two-timing Jesse. However, in true Bachelor in Paradise form, one of the Bachelors shocks everyone and decides he no longer wants to stay in paradise. With the remaining couples still reeling over that surprise, Chris Harrison reveals that next week will be the last week in paradise and everything is about to change.
