There was so much that happened in the past two episodes, so I’m gonna touch on the actual couples that were somewhat stable. I could go into the ridiculousness that ensued like Nick rolling in the sand, or Mikey’s attempt to win Mackenzie, but let’s get to the real couples.
Jade and Tanner: I love these two. They really love each other, and it seems so effortless with them compared to the other couples. I loved the moment when Jade said she felt understood by someone for the first time in her life. It was so sweet, and it was obvious that they were going to be engaged by the end of the episode. I genuinely feel like these two will get married, and I’m so happy that they found each other.
Cassandra and Justin: I liked Cassandra and Justin, but when Jonathan came out, I was so shocked. Jonathan has been posting pictures with Cassandra on Instagram for a while, but I didn’t think much of it. It’s too bad paradise didn’t have her on the show sooner because they would have another success story.
Samantha and Nick: They barely had any screen time, but I guess they worked things out after all. Not too much to say, other than I’m glad they moved past all the crazy drama.
Tenley and Joshua: Tenley knows how to break a heart. She was so sweet and realistic about the whole situation. There was no way Joshua was going to be upset with her. They had a good run, but she was thinking with her head. Better to end it while they’re still in paradise.
Kirk and Carly: This was the craziest storyline of the past two episodes. Kirk started having doubts without telling Carly, so she was blindsided by him. It was so heartbreaking to see Carly crying. I loved the moment when she was calling for Jade, and they hugged it out. Their friendship is so wonderful and real. I still like Kirk, but he just waited too long to break Carly’s heart.
Anyway, sorry this is late, but I’ve been busy with classes. Overall, I LOVED this season. It was more dramatic and funnier than both The Bachelor and The Bachelorette.
