If you want to know the real time status of the couples who’ve hooked up on “Bachelor in Paradise,” you may be in luck. Host Chris Harrison says there’s a good chance a reunion special will turn up on ABC’s schedule in the near future. In an interview posted on Friday with TV Guide, Harrison said, “We are in heavy talks. As I said, if there was ever a show that needed it, it’s this one. So we’re desperately trying to figure it out. “
The summertime reality romp has spawned a series of surprising hookups, including “Bachelor” alum Michelle Money’s unlikely pairing with recent “Bachelorette” reject Cody Sattler. Harrison called the two franchise alums “the most surprising couple ever in the history of the show.”
As for the pairing of Money’s ex, Graham Bunn, with AshLee Frazier, Harrison dished, “Since Day 1 I’ve said that the foundation was cracked the moment they started dating, and three hours in, she pressured him not to see anybody else … They’ve had ups and downs all along, and people are asking how ‘Bachelor in Paradise’ ends, and this has a lot to do with it. Only the strongest survive from here on out.”
With only two episodes left, the hookup storylines will surely wrap up, but filming in Tulum, Mexico ended earlier this summer, so a lot may have changed as fair as the relationship statuses go. But one couple is definitely still together, and viewers will even to see their proposal play out on TV.
According to Us Weekly, “Bachelorette” alum Marcus Grodd and Lacy Faddoul got engaged while they were on “Bachelor in Paradise.” And while their engagement may have come fast—the show was taped in only three weeks in June – Grodd professed his love for Faddoul on last week’s episode. Yes, unlike “The Bachelor,” on this show “I love yous” allowed.
Of course, Grodd was ready to pop the question to “Bachelorette” star Andi Dorfman just a few months before he met Faddoul in “Paradise,” so we’ll have to see if a wedding actually happens. But for now, what happened in Mexico definitely didn’t stay in Mexico.
The next episode of “Bachelor in Paradise” airs on Monday, Sept. 1 at 8 p.m. on ABC.
