Well, you know what they say: What happens in paradise stays in paradise. Unless your Chris and Elise. Then you get a little frisky the night before and make a grand gesture during the Rose Ceremony, and head home together after three days of “falling in love.” Was it three, or one? Hmmm… love is love, right?
Welcome back to Mondays in Paradise, ladies and gents! During this week’s episode of The Bachelor in Paradise, we find out that Marquel has a secret crush Danielle, but unfortunately while Marquel thinks Danielle is gorgeous, he becomes too smitten with Jackie’s beach walking silhouette. Both Marquel and Jackie break their first date rules by sharing a first kiss. Oh no! Not on the first date! How scandalous.
We also find out (again) that AshLee is seriously way too stalker-gone-wild for sweet, charming Graham. I’m sorry, talking about your babies already? Someone get this chick a reality check. Hey Graham! I know a gal that thinks your mighty fine, and doesn’t stalk your Instagram account and publicly announce it…
Clare and Zack seem to continue to hit it off well by sharing cuddles here and there, and going on double dates with Rob and Michelle. These four contestants really know how to embrace Paradise! A little bonfire on the beach, some vino, and some Zack and Rob on the side… Where was my invite? I’d like to get to know Rob and Zack too. I guess I know how sweet Sarah feels now.
But let’s talk about Chris again. You really have to give it to the guy. First he tears apart his knee, and then he still manages to go on his night-time date with Elise, go swimming, and get a little cozy after. That’s a multi-tasking handyman, if I do say so myself! I think the latter part of the evening wore Chris in just a tad, as he looked a little rough around the edges during his trip to the hospital. His decision to give Michelle his rose at the Rose Ceremony was definitely a tearjerker, as he told her he believes she deserves to find love.
So we bid farewell to Chris and Elise, as they walk off into their romantic sunset. But we also say goodbye to Danielle, who only lasted for the one episode in hopes to find love with Marquel. Sorry Danielle, your Marquel ship has sailed off to Jackie Island.
Who’s ready for next week?
Update: If you have not seen the news yet, it was not the torn up knee that broke up Chris and Elise but even after meeting the parents the 3 day love story comes to an end. Good thing for all the single ladies coming to our TIFF Bachelor Party on September 5th.
