Bachelor in Paradise 2

Bachelor in Paradise 2 Episode-by-Episode Spoilers

Episode 4: Men asking dates, Women give out roses

Men (10): Kirk, Joshua, Dan, Jared, Tanner, Joe, Mikey. 3 news guys entering are: Nick Peterson (Ashley’s season, Bachelor Pad 3 Winner), Chris Bukowski (every show ever made), Justin Reich (Kaitlyn’s season).
Women (8): Carly, Tenley, Amber, Ashley I., Jade, Samantha, Ashley S., and Juelia.

1st date: Nick wanted to ask Samantha but she was with Joe, so he went with Ashley S. and they got massages.
2nd date: Chris Bukowski. He went on the show for Jade. She was taken. He then asked Tenley and she said no. So he ended up giving his date card to Josh, who took Tenley out. Chris then left either that day or the next. I believe he came on the show to ask someone to his sister’s wedding that he was at that weekend, but not sure. Regardless, no one would leave with him, so he gave his card away and bolted.
3rd date: Justin asked Samantha and she initially said yes, but then changed her mind and said no. Justin ends up taking Amber on a date.
UPDATE 8/24: 4th date: Miley asked Juelia and they went to watch Mexican wrestling.

It was established at some point during this episode that Samantha was also talking to Nick before the season as well which apparently led to another Joe/Samantha fight.

Rose Ceremony:

Carly gives her rose to Kirk
Tenley to Joshua
Ashley I. to Jared
Jade to Tanner
Ashley S. to Nick
Juelia to Mikey
Amber to Justin
Final rose: Samantha to Dan over Joe because they were fighting again and had a blow up.

Eliminated this episode: Chris Bukowski (on his own because no one would leave with him), and Joe Bailey.

Episode 5: Women asking dates, Men give out roses (A lot of eliminations this episode so pay attention)

Women (12): Carly, Tenley, Ashley I., Jade, Ashley S., Juelia, Amber, Samantha. FOUR women enter the show this week. They are: Chelsie Webster (Juan Pablo’s season), McKenzie Deonigi (Chris’ season), Jaclyn Swartz (Ben’s season, Bachelor Pad 3), and Cassandra Ferguson (Juan Pablo’s season).
Men (8): Kirk, Joshua, Jared, Tanner, Nick, Mikey, Justin, and Dan.

1st date: Chelsie took Nick. Went on a yacht and went snorkeling.
2nd date: Mackenzie took Justin. Not sure what they did.
3rd date: Jaclyn didn’t have anyone to take since most were already paired up. So she gave her date card to Nick. Cassandra took Justin and they went horseback riding.
4th date: Nick used the date card that Jaclyn gave him and took Samantha. They had dinner and did some food tasting or something like that.

During this episode, Jared leaves because he’s not feeling it with Ashley I. He left before the cocktail party even happened. Dan also leaves because he’s not feeling it with Amber. Juelia also left before the cocktail party since I guess she figured there wasn’t anyone left she was interested in. At the cocktail party, Ashley I. then leaves because she doesn’t have anyone left and apparently was still pining over Jared not being into her. I can imagine that went over well.

Rose Ceremony:

Kirk gives rose to Carly
Joshua to Tenley
Tanner to Jade
Nick to Samantha
Justin to Cassandra
Mikey gave a rose to Mackenzie but she said no, so Mikey ended up leaving. Not sure what the final rose of this ceremony was, but basically 5 girls were eliminated at this rose ceremony: Chelsie, Amber, Mackenzie, Ashley S., and Jaclyn.

So let me do the math for you. 20 people were in this episode – 12 girls and 8 guys. 10 were eliminated by the end of the episode. Chelsie, Amber, Mackenzie, Ashley S., and Jaclyn at the rose ceremony, Jared, Dan, and Juelia before the episode. Ashley I. at the cocktail party. And Mikey at the rose ceremony when Mackenzie doesn’t accept his rose. Whew. Got that?

Episode 6: No new people join. Every remaining couple gets dates.

So when the final episode begins, there are 5 remaining couples. They are:

Kirk and Carly
Nick and Samantha
Justin and Cassandra
Tanner and Jade
Joshua and Tenley

Everyone is told they all be getting 1-on-1 dates and a Fantasy Suite date. Before any of the dates begin, Kirk breaks up with Carly and they both go home. So now only 4 remaining couples and they all go on dates and have an overnight. No idea what any of them did.

On the final day, no previous couples returned to give advice or any bogus stuff like that. Basically, a little altar or platform was set up, each couple would come up to the platform, they’d give their little speech to each other, then give each other roses if they decide to stay together. I do not know in what order it was done, but here were the end results:

Justin and Cassandra stayed together.
Nick and Samantha stayed together.
Joshua and Tenley broke up.

And since this is “Bachelor in Paradise,” you knew they’d get someone to propose and, well…

Tanner is engaged to Jade.

Ummmm, yeah. Now, I can sit here and say no way this is gonna work and it’s just a showmance, but I basically said the same thing about Marcus and Lacy last season and now they’re married. Obviously time will tell, and Tanner and Jade were together since Day 1 on this show, so I have no clue how real this thing is. Put it this way, just like last season, these two got engaged without either one meeting the other person’s family or friends, and having only spent 20 days together. So basically I look at it as, you get engaged because that’s what the show wants you to do, and then you spend the time after the show to see if you want to REMAIN engaged. That’s all it really is. The engagement doesn’t mean anything. It’s what you do after it in the following months that matters. Marcus and Lacy met under the same circumstances, they hadn’t met each others friends and family before getting engaged after three weeks, and now they’re married. Can Tanner and Jade pull it off? I’m gonna go out on a limb here and say no, but hey, weirder things have happened. She just doesn’t strike me as someone who, right after everything she went through six months ago, is ready to settle down and get married.

We know her past. And it’s a very recent past mind you. It’s not like she can pull the ol’ “Oh I was young and dumb and posed full nude for Playboy.” It was done within a months of her moving to LA back in I believe 2013. So yeah, it just seems a little far fetched and we know the show pushes for these engagements to spice it up a bit and give everyone a happy ending. It just seems all too contrived and not believable to me. Good luck to them. They’re gonna need it.

    Just because someone did, or currently does nude modeling doesn’t mean they cant find love and get married. It doesn’t matter how recent it was. There’s plenty of happily married women who have done Playboy (including my best friend).

    And sure there’s some guys who would mind and not be interested in a relationship with a girl with that type of career, but really, there’s a whole lot of guys out there who really don’t care if a girl has done nude photo shoots or is currently a nude model (from my personal experience).

    Jade was not my fave on farmers season but wow to say that you don’t see someone getting married just because she posed for playboy is uncalled for… I love how reality Steve says “oh yeah I know I said so and so wouldn’t make it but hey they did” YOU DONT KNOW ANYTHING!!! you are given this information without being in these people’s shoes! Oh and when are you gonna correct your Britt and Brady break up spoiler because it’s wrong lmao

    @mskelly agreed! Posing naked does not make Jade less worthy or capable of a committed relationship/marriage. Many women who pose nude have perfectly healthy relationships and marriages. Steve has a way of sounding like a judgmental 16 year old boy whose never seen a naked woman before anytime he brings up Jade in detail. He outright said in a post during Chris’ season that “no man will ever take Jade seriously in a relationship because of her past”.

    You know a guy has a pretty massive male ego when he thinks he can speak for every man in existence regarding women.

    many people during “dark” times of their life do reactionary things to quiet the pain. Past doesn’t have to define us; if we learn and grow from “life”. It is very possible that the sweet shy girl that Jade portrayed on the bachelor is her true self and she will continue to shine in this world with her relationships and work. I hope so. This is my hope for all of us.

    I don’t think the point is that Jade is a nude model, so she’s bad and can’t want a relationship. The point is that when someone does some serious fame seeking by posing nude for Playboy and then goes on the mother of fame whoring reality shows….. then maybe…. and I know this is going out on a limb….. maybe they’re on the show for fame & not a relationship.

    I know. What a crazy idea.

    Thank you Steve, for reminding me that I am defined by my past mistakes and doomed to live a life overshadowed by all of my wrongs (that is, wrongs, as defined by you).

    Actually after reading your comment, @rob22, I think you’re probably right….this is more along the lines of fame seeking behavior more than anything else. Regardless of Jade’s nude modeling, she definitely appears to be on the road of fame seeking more than anything else. Has nothing to do with her character and more to do with her current goals and mindset.

    As a photographer who shoots fine art nude models occasionally, many of whom have modeled for “Playboy,” “Maxim,” etc. I disagree Steve with this necessary connection you seem to see between nudity and shame and promiscuity. Promiscuity is a different animal and more coupled to the woman who goes bar-hopping and hooking up, or the lusty, thrill-seeking woman; though even there you can’t judge everyone as having the same motives, past, reasons for doing it.

    As I’ve said before, Steve, a lot of people think the human body is beautiful and not shameful. It also tends to be timeless because you don’t have era-defining clothing styles to deal with. Erotic nudes – a lot of people don’t feel sexual arousal is shameful either.

    Jade never said she was ashamed of posing nude because she wasn’t – I do not feel she needs to be. The problems for nude models arise from the preconceived, judgmental attitudes of many other people, costing them jobs and relationships; and that is what Jade said has caused many problems and heartache for her. It was courageous of her to bring this to the forefront – she will never live it down now – and I hope she gets some work as a result of this.

    Well said for all of you defending Jade. She could have desperately needed the money at the time – we don’t know the circumstances and neither does Reality Steve. Many women go on to have successful relationships after posing for a men’s magazine. I think Jade has more going for her than many women who’ve appeared on the Bachelor series. RS goes out of his way to shoot down Jade with ridiculous statements that don’t carry any weight yet puts someone like Kaitlyn up on a pedestal?? Enough said.

    It seems like Steve has had issues with Jade’s nude modeling all along. It’s almost as if he sees it as a hop skip and a jump to her being a porn star. I don’t know for sure, but it comes off as him imposing his distaste of it on all guys. Just because he’s not okay with dating/being engaged to someone who can be Googled by anyone and seen naked doesn’t mean there aren’t plenty of men who’d be okay with it.

    I bet Jaclyn was pissed she didn’t get to be on it from the start.

    I think, as far as RS is concerned, he looks for the cheap laugh. There is no way he’s going to pass on the variety of cheap laughs available towards a nude model. Especially since he always notes how many of the Bachelor(ette) cast are already in the entertainment industry already. So, it’s part cheap laughs & part the obviousness that they are doing the show for the exposure. These days, almost nobody is on the show for love anyway, so the second part shouldn’t even matter. But he does like to point it out, and that’s honestly part of his job…. as are the cheap laughs & getting a rise out of people. Sooner or later, he makes a comment that annoys each and every one of us.

    I personally get annoyed by his stock comeback to criticism… “get a life” (is there a lamer comeback than that?)…. and his constant self congratulations. But, that’s just me.

    But, if he wrote bland Bachelorette recaps without snark, without the cheap jokes and, of course, without the spoilers…. we’ve all seen those out there….. who the hell would read his stuff? RS would then just be some out-of-work phone slap that used to work on the Jim Rome show & now works in a boiler room selling cancer insurance over the phone during the dinner hour.

    Steve cant let go of the fact that Kaitlyn slept with Nick (he mentions it in every single paragraph during the recaps!), not surprised he’s still taking shots at Jade. Like someone pointed out, I dont think this is a reflection of Steve’s actually feelings on these people…its a reflection of his limited writing skills. He wants to be funny and he is at times, but he doesnt know when to drop a joke or at least make it more interesting.

    I have been waiting for this. Happy for Tanner and Jade. Super sad for Clare 🙁

    It would be nice if we had pictures to go with the names–I honestly do not remember half of these people!!!

    July 1, 2015 at 1:16 PM

    Was Tanner the guy who knew all the Bachelor trivia, and told the guys about Nick’s ATFR comment to Andi? Or was that guy named Justin?

    I pretty much only know this year’s guys by their nicknames. Isn’t Justin the same as Captain Jack Sparrow? I’m just waiting for him to braid his scruffy beard.

    Yep @vessel, that’s Tanner. AND, he’s the one that kinda looks like Chris B – who Steve said came on the show for Jade, haha. Well, we know he went into that relationship with eyes wide open, given his Bach knowledge. He probably composed reports on all the ladies before he went!

    I think Justin is the model boy with the big lips who’s hair they all made fun of in the comedy/rap dates. I think.

    – Clearly Canadian

    @purplerayne – I agree. Just because something was funny the 1st couple times, doesn’t mean it’s still funny the 100th time. RS doesn’t know when it’s time to stop harping on something and move on.

    I have barely watched Kaitlyn’s season, so have no idea who most of these guys are.

  20. serapa

    July 2, 2015 at 9:19 AM

    So RS gets on the defensive of the slut shaming Kaitlyn and then slut shames Jade???

    That made perfect sense! Playboy is very tame…it’s not like Penthouse. The flower is still kept closed….

    I had to google several of the names to see the pics because I forgot who a lot of people were until I saw their pics.

    Wow would’ve never put Jade and Tanner together but they must’ve had some kind of chemistry..looking forward to seeing how that happened. Tanner is an interesting guy.

  22. cjscjs711

    July 5, 2015 at 8:16 AM

    Yes I hope Steve posts pictures of this year’s forgettable cast. Steve does the spoilers better than anyone, even writing wise and that includes all the publications out there.

    Recaps– the bar has been raised very high lately by people like Sharleen and Lincee. They’ve spoiled me, you could say. But every once in a while Steve comes across with a good one.
