You realize after tonight, we’re halfway through BIP? I’ll get to the schedule in a second, but just know that there’s still 3 more rose ceremonies to cover, and they’re basically only gonna cover 2 rose ceremonies in the first 6 episodes. So yeah, as we get towards the end, those will speed up a bit since the people who come on late are pretty irrelevant and don’t add to the narrative of the main couples of the season. The Blake stuff took up so much time, then dragging this Demi stuff out, I mean, last night rose ceremony #2 of the season didn’t end until 55 minutes into the show. Only one new person came on last night, and that was Caitlin. Tonight, only two new people come on and that’s Jen Saviano and Demi’s girlfriend, Kristian Haggerty. So we still have two more women that need to come on, Haley Ferguson and Tahzjuan Hawkins, which won’t be happening until next Monday. So we won’t be getting rose ceremony #3 until either the end of next Monday’s episode, or beginning of Tuesday’s. So knowing that they still have two more rose ceremonies after that to get through, the entrance of around 7 new people, then “decision day” for the last couples, overnight dates, then proposal day, that’s a lot to squeeze in.
It was announced that DWTS will begin Monday, September 16th, meaning Paradise’s final two episodes will be Sept.. 9th & 10th. As I told you last Wednesday, which zero outlets gave me credit for when they reported it yesterday, but Hannah will be announced on the cast when the cast is revealed tomorrow morning on GMA. Par for the course. God forbid they throw in one simple sentence saying “as first reported by Reality Steve.” Not that hard. Oh well. I’m used to it. Anyway, with that confirmation that DWTS will begin that Monday, now we know that the final two episodes of Paradise will be Sept. 9th & 10th. I can also report that they are filming the reunion episode next Tuesday, August 27th. Obviously only the major players of the season will be back on the show, and a ton of you have asked what’s the status of the couples. Well, everyone that was reported to be engaged are still engaged. Clay and Nicole are not together, Connor and Whitney are still together, and obviously we know Dean and Caelynn still are. The only one in question that has a different result from their Paradise ending is Tayshia and JPJ. They broke up on the show as you know, but they are currently seeing each other and are doing a horrible job of hiding it on social media. So there you go. After next Tuesday, hopefully I’ll be able to fill you in on what goes down at the tapings.
So, here’s what we’re looking at the rest of the season:
Tonight 8/20 – Episode 6
Mon 8/26 – Episode 7
Tues 8/27 – Episode 8
Mon 9/2 – Episode 9
Tues 9/3 – Episode 10
Mon 9/9 – Episode 11
Tues 9/10 – Episode 12 (Reunion Show)
It’s really impossible to tell you which people are gonna be showing up on which episode just because this show takes such liberties with how they drag stuff out. Reading the episode-by-episode spoilers, you know who comes in in between each rose ceremony and who is eliminated when. But matching that up with what episode that will happen in is damn near impossible. However, that’s your episode schedule for the rest of the season, now that we know DWTS premieres on 9/16.
A couple random notes from random contestants you saw me tweet about last night. First off there’s Christian, who got kicked off the show with Jordan for fighting. Well, don’t worry about him. He’s already moved on to another reality TV woman. Now, I’ve never seen 3 seconds of “90 Day Fiance,” so I have no clue who this chick is or what her story is other than what’s in the article. Congrats to these two lovebirds. I’m sure their love will last many, many hours.
As for Caitlin who showed up last night, I’m guessing most of you don’t remember her much from Colton’s season. Don’t worry, you’re not alone. And you probably don’t remember who she got involved with while Colton’s season was airing, so let me remind you. Soooooo yeah. You can see that her picker is completely off as well. And before you ask, yes, I’ve seen the tirade Chad has been on on Twitter recently, and these media dopes are playing right into his hands. The fact that they are covering what he tweets is EXACTLY what he wants them to do. Pay that guy no attention. I do.
And finally, today is episode 21 of the “He Said, She Said” podcast with Ashley Spivey. You can listen to today’s podcast on a number of platforms, but you can also tune in by clicking the player below:
In this episode, Ashley first joins me to talk about the movie premiere in Canada she recently attended, then how she started helping the #ClearTheLists campaign (3:51). Then caller Lori in Charlotte joins us to talk about her real douchebag of an ex-boyfriend that she caught two-timing her (12:40). Original theme music provided by Kate Bass and the song is titled “Blink.”
