At this point, the twist happened. It’s basically a rip off of Casa Amor from “Love Island.” If you’re unfamiliar with Casa Amor, essentially halfway through filming, all the couples are separated with one gender going to another villa and meeting new singles. That’s what BIP did. I think the women were the ones that moved to a new location in Mexico, and were introduced to 5 new men brought in. The guys stayed on the beach and were introduced to 5 new women brought in. The 10 new people who came in were:
Sarah Hamrick (Clayton’s season)
Kate Gallivan (Clayton’s season)
Eliza Isichei (Clayton’s season)
Jessenia Cruz (Matt’s season)
Florence Moerenhout (BIP Austraila 1 & 2) – I think this was the name I heard. Still trying to get 100% confirmation, but I do believe it’s her based on what I was told.
Tyler Norris (Rachel/Gabby’s season)
Alex Bordyukov (Rachel Lindsay’s season, BIP Australia season 2, BIP Canada season 1)
Adam Todd (Bachelorette Australia season 6)
Rick Leach (Michelle’s season)
Olu Onajide (Michelle’s season)
Now on “Love Island,” Casa Amor only lasts for one day. So, I don’t expect them to be split up very long. But basically, they use it as a way to “test” the current couples since you’re away from them for a day and “forced” to mingle with someone else. Then at the 3rd rose ceremony (which happened Sunday and I don’t have the results yet from), assuming it’s a guy’s rose ceremony, they are making them choose between who they were coupled up with originally, or will they jump to someone new. As mentioned, I don’t have the 3rd rose ceremony results yet, outside of these two things that happened:
-Rodney dumped Lace for Eliza.
-Olu and Rick were sent home as they didn’t form a connection with anyone.
-Justin was eliminated at rose ceremony #2, but he was brought back on after “Casa Amor” happened and everyone was back on the beach. I guess he was interested in Eliza. Not sure why he got to return.
-Rodney broke up with Lace for Eliza once the “Casa Amor” twist happened. At that next rose ceremony after Casa Amor, Eliza gave her rose to Rodney over Justin. But then I guess she walked Justin out, then when she came back, she had a conversation with Rodney and basically felt pressured to give him a rose, so they broke up and both left the beach. I have no idea if Eliza and Justin are a thing post show now.
-Eliminations after Casa Amor: already told you Olu and Rick were sent home because they didn’t form a connection. Alex Bordyukov and Adam Todd from Bachelorette Australia season 6 were eliminated.
-Sarah Hamrick had to leave the beach because her grandmother died. I believe this was before rose ceremony #3 happened. Sarah had come on the beach as part of the 5 women for “Casa Amor.”
-I’m not sure if before or after that rose ceremony, but Hayden Markowitz from Gabby & Rachel’s season came in, along with the twins, Joey and Justin. Hayden is already home. Joey and Justin still there.
-Then the final 3 women brought in were all from Clayton’s season: Mara Agreat, Ency Abedin, and Lyndsey Windham.
Current Couples (at that point):
Brandon and Serene
Michael and Danielle
Aaron and Genevieve
Johnny and Victoria
Tyler and Brittany
Andrew and Jessenia
Logan and Kate
Shanae, Florence and Mara are in a love triangle with the twins, Joey and Justin.
-Kate is possibly next villain. She arrived during Casa Amor. Then Jacob left Jill for Kate. Jill went home. Then at some point, Kate got with Logan, and they’re now a thing, so Jacob went home. When Lyndsey came on the beach, there weren’t many options, so she asked Logan, Kate told him she didn’t want him going on a date, so Lyndsey just went home.
Here are your BIP final couple results:
Aaron & Genevieve – broke up
Logan & Kate – broke up
Michael & Danielle – left as a couple
Tyler & Brittany – left as a couple, have since broken up
Johnny & Victoria – engaged
Brandon & Serene – engaged
