Scoop: Relationships Continue to Sizzle, Fizzle and Freeze on ABC's BACHELOR IN PARADISE 8/20 & 8/21

Scoop: Relationships Continue to Sizzle, Fizzle and Freeze on ABC's BACHELOR IN PARADISE  8/20 & 8/21As storms continue to brew, both figuratively and literally, a distressed damsel confronts the man that DECEIVED her by kissing another woman, who then joins them for an awkward conversation, on a new episode of "Bachelor in Paradise," airing MONDAY, AUG. 20 (8:00-10:01 p.m. EDT), on The ABC Television Network, streaming and on demand. Seeing his true colors, the shocked bachelorette realizes that she still hopes that her original love interest will prove to be her
guy. So, when a newcomer with a date card steals away the dreamy football player for a conversation, it unnerves his former flame who fears what he would do if he were to get asked out on a date.

With four women potentially going home at the rose ceremony, one INSECURE lady sets her sights on an available bachelor but worries when the newest arrival asks out the suddenly popular single dad. Thinking that they have little in common, this brainy beauty is pleasantly surprised by the professional wrestler, but his not-so-secret admirer is waiting for him back at the beach with a surprise dessert. When a third contender tosses her hat - and her ips - into the ring at the cocktail party, which of the three will he ultimately choose to give his rose?

Creating more controversy at the cocktail party, an unabashed pot-stirrer gifts a birthday girl with a giant stuffed dog designed to get under the skin of her jealous suitor, who also happens to be his
bitter rival. Mission accomplished, as the male model lashes out on the adorable oversized pup and even some of the women. The spectacle he makes upsets one woman in particular - THE ONE with whom he is falling madly in love - leaving her with a big dilemma.

While other women panic over receiving a rose, she must decide whether or not to accept THE ONE offered to her.

Then, on Episode 503B, The women are handing out the roses in a new episode airing TUESDAY, AUG. 21 (8:00-10:00 p.m. EDT), and they are ready for some new options. A hunky ladies' man walks into
Paradise with his long locks flowing and asks out another fair-haired beauty, even though she is seemingly part of a happy couple with everybody's favorite grocer. To everybody's surprise, including her concerned beach beau, she says yes, and goes out with the would-be Fabio.

Paradise's original bartender, Jorge, shows up on the date and, as fate would have it, explains to the stunning couple that he has written a romance novel, which is depicted in a dramatization starring some fan favorite Bachelor alumni. All that this bartender-turned-author needs now are models to appear on the cover. One hot and steamy photoshoot leads the lusty lady to realize that she may not be ready to settle down with the supermarket sweetie anxiously waiting for back at the resort.

A date card would certainly help in his love and war effort, but when the next one arrives, it has another guy's name on it. This time, it is no surprise to anybody when the lucky lady invited out says yes. Hoping to return from the date with an established relationship, she is shocked when her friends, who also happen to be a happy couple from Paradise's past, show up to help them soak up the local
culture. When her old friend from home stuns her with a tearful warning about her date's intentions, she knows that she must confront him to make sure that he is here for the right reasons.

Love is definitely in the air on a third date when a new arrival from a foreign land asks out a newly available blonde bombshell who is over her last boyfriend after his behavior at the last cocktail party.
Upon returning from a successful first date, the giddy couple is awaited by the guilt-ridden gentleman who attempts to win his girlfriend back with a bold gesture. Which guy can this fickle
female TRUST to protect her heart forever?
