Bachelor in Paradise 2

Bachelor in Paradise 2 Episode-by-Episode Spoilers

Good news and bad news. The bad news is “Reader Emails” will be pushed back a day and join “Dr. Reality Steve” tomorrow. Why? Well, that’s where the good news comes in. Yes, the return of “Bachelor in Paradise 2” is upon us and I have all your spoilers for you. Granted, some dates I have more details on than others, and maybe the order of entrances from people coming on the show might be off, but in terms of who goes home every episode and who gets what rose at the rose ceremonies, and the ending of the show, those are all correct. The spoilers are right, and media sites will now begin stealing from this site after today because nobody has reported any spoilers on BIP 2 yet. So please credit this site when posting them wherever. As for this season, well, the location was better that’s for sure. But it’s essentially the exact same show, same concept, and pretty much the same ending as last season that we’ll get to. If you didn’t watch last season’s “Bachelor in Paradise,” I’ll give you a refresher course on what to expect. Just know this one is highly populated with people from Chris and Kaitlyn’s season. Before we get to the episode-by-episode breakdown, lets get to the basics:

-The show started filming Thursday, June 4th and ended Wednesday, June 24th at the Playa Escondida Resort in Sayulita. I was off by two days on that one.

-The show begins with a two-night premiere Sunday, August 2nd and Monday, August 3rd. But here’s the whopper: That’s how the WHOLE SEASON will be. Yes ladies and gentleman, 3 HOURS of “Bachelor in Paradise” every week. Not sure how they’ll break it up, but I’m assuming we’ll get one hour on Sunday night, and two hours on Monday nights.

-Marcus and Lacy, last season’s “Bachelor in Paradise” couple to get engaged, got married this season at the beginning of filming. Family and friends were flown out, and I believe the cast that started this season’s show was in attendance as well. I’m assuming this is going to be shown on Sunday night August 2nd’s episode. Yes, the wedding was paid for, yes the rings were paid for, and yes, each were paid to do it, hence the reason they agreed to. I’ve never faulted anyone who’s gotten married from this show for it to be televised, but just know a major reason they agree to it is because they’re getting paid. And I gotta believe somewhere in Seattle, Des & Chris are thinking to themselves, “You’ll televise these two’s wedding but you wouldn’t do ours?” Granted, Lacy and Marcus’ will be much lower key than the Trista and Ryan, Jason and Molly, Ashley and JP, and Sean and Catherine ones, but still. They got a free wedding and got paid and Des & Chris didn’t when many more people were invested in their story than Marcus and Lacy.

-The show will run for six episodes and as of now I haven’t heard of any “live” finale or for any sort of reunion episode, but that could all change as the season goes along. “Dancing with the Stars” season 21 begins Monday, September 14th, so that really only leaves BIP 2 with six Sundays and Mondays to broadcast. I wouldn’t expect any “live” finale and/or reunion show. They didn’t last season. Not to mention, the ending was already filmed that Wednesday the 24th and there’s definitely some finality to it. More on that later.

-There are 29 different former contestants that appear on BIP 2 at some point this season. Last season there were 25.

-To break it down even further, 18 of those 29 are from either Chris or Kaitlyn’s season. The 11 who weren’t from those seasons are:

-Carly’s brother Zak got married two weekends ago in Ireland. Carly did not attend because she was filming BIP 2. I don’t care if Zak gave her the ok, that’s completely embarrassing but not the least bit surprising. You missed a sibling’s wedding to be on a reality show? Sad. Yes, I’m aware that Zak had his “reception” this past weekend that Carly attended, but their brother Denton made it to Ireland for the wedding. Hell, Ben Scott and his new fiance went to Ireland for it. But Carly couldn’t attend her brother’s wedding? That sucks.

-Ashley and her sister Lauren were considered a “team” on this show. If Ashley didn’t get a rose, then Lauren would have to go home with her. And Lauren didn’t have to give a rose out at the rose ceremony either. Well, that was the initial plan. Whatever experiment they tried to do with casting both sisters failed miserably. Ashley ended up lasting longer than Lauren.

The show initially started with 8 girls and 7 guys. They were:

Carly Waddell (Chris’ season)
Ashley Salter (Chris)
Ashley Iaconetti (Chris)
Lauren Iaconetti (Ashley’s sister who’s never been on anything)
Jade Roper (Chris)
Jillian Anderson (Chris)
Juelia Kinney (Chris)
Tenley Molzahn (Jake’s season, Bachelor Pad 1)

JJ Lane (Kaitlyn’s season)
Jared Haibon (Kaitlyn)
Tanner Tolbert (Kaitlyn)
Jonathan Holloway (Kaitlyn)
Mikey Tenerelli (Des’ season)
Dan Cox (Des’ season)
Kirk DeWindt (Ali’s season, Bachelor Pad 2)

Just like last season when Michelle Money came in Day 2, Clare Crawley (Juan Pablo’s season, BIP) came in on Day 2 as well, bringing the total to 9 girls and 7 guys to essentially “start” the show.

-Apparently the heat was a major issue down there and a few people had to be taken to the hospital for dehydration. I know Ashley Salter was one of them, so expect to see at least one shot of an ambulance when they show the first real promo of the season to get everyone freaking out about what happens etc. Just know it wasn’t anything major but more than one person ended up in the hospital due to heat exhaustion/dehydration.

-Each episode had either 3 or 4 dates depending on how many people came on the show that week. All the dates were in and around the Playa Escondida Resort and not a major part of the show, just like last season. The dates are very anticlimactic. It was more about who went on them than what they actually did.

-Last season, usually only two new people came in every episode and they came with date cards, and then the other two dates in the episode were given to people already there. This time, every episode had at least three people coming in (sometimes four) and those people all arrived with date cards to ask someone out. Doesn’t mean they actually did end up going out with someone, but they had the ability to ask.

-Same exact format as last season in terms of dates and roses. If the girls are arriving on the episode, they are the ones asking the men out on dates that week, then the guys are giving the roses at the rose ceremony and vice versa.

With that said, lets get to your date breakdown that took me hours to all piece together, but here’s what I got for ya’…

    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!!!

  15. vessel

    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.

    rob22 – i love you

    July 1, 2015 at 5:49 PM

    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….

    July 2, 2015 at 4:26 PM

    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.
