I know, I’m shocked, too.
It’s been three months since we’ve had any new Bachelor shows to watch (sorry The Bachelor: The Greatest Seasons—Ever!—you don’t really count). It’s hard to forget the fact that, under non-pandemic circumstances, we’d all be obsessing over Bachelor in Paradise right about now.
While there’s reportedly massive drama on the set of The Bachelorette right now—ICYMI: Clare Crawley allegedly quit after falling in love with a contestant and Tayshia Adams is rumored to be the new Bachelorette—there have been some rumblings that Bachelor in Paradise is actually secretly filming instead.
Among the people spotted on the filming location are the newly single Hannah Ann Sluss, BiP bartender Wells Adams, and the newly single Becca Kufrin. But other Bachelor Nation stars who are coupled up, like Ashley Iaconetti, have also been seen there, making this whole thing hella confusing.
That said, spoiler god Reality Steve recently tweeted that, BiP is “not happening” in place of filming of The Bachelorette. “All the other appearances by alumni are cameos being done bc of the weirdness of the season. Not a normal season, so they are doing non-normal things. It’s as simple as that,” he wrote.
But then he followed that up by saying that he’s “starting to hear things aren’t quite the way the media is portraying them, & the narrative is getting spun so they can produce click bait headlines.” So…we really don’t have any clue when we’ll see BiP again.
What we do know is that Bachelor in Paradise has produced more real-life couples than any other show in the Bachelor franchise. Over the past six seasons, Paradise has been responsible for three successful marriages, three current engagements, and four adorable babies. Read on to see which of your favorite Bachelor Nation couples made their summer flings go the distance into the new decade:
