‘Bachelor in Paradise’ Season 4 Finale Will Be Live & Reveal Who’s Still Dating!
Those producers have done it again — they’ve managed to make Bachelor in Paradise Season 4 can’t miss summer TV!
It seems the changes made to the format — after an investigation revealed no wrongdoing — haven’t tarnished the show. In fact, we just heard of one that makes it even better!
Fans had already heard about the new rules for the contestants, including a two drink per hour limit and required consent given to producers prior to hooking up in the boom boom room.
That might sound like a hindrance, but judging by the new extended promo, those wild alums still managed to make it fun and create romantic connections — love triangles, even!
The only problem? The show’s shortened production period!
Past seasons have taken place over around 18 days to three weeks of filming, which always felt like a short period to fall in love — not to mention, get engaged.
Because of the production halt, Vinny Ventiera let it slip recently that they only had 10 days this year to create new Bachelor Nation connections.
No wonder no one got engaged!
That’s not something the powers that be are overlooking, though. In fact, Chris Harrison even acknowledged how much this affected the outcome of the show.
“One of the things that will be a little different is our time in Paradise was cut down and compacted,” the host tells Entertainment Weekly.
To deal with that, they’re fast-forwarding into real time in the BIP 4 finale!
“Therefore the show will extend back into the real world,” the executive producer continues.
And did we mention it’s all going to be live?!
“It’s going to be a lot of finding out what’s been happening because things have been continuing back in the real world since the show wrapped up in Mexico,” Chris says of the final episode, which will feature a live studio audience a la After the Finale Rose.
He adds, “It’s going to be interesting and I think a lot more fun for all of us.”
The franchise mainstay also hints that big players of the season will be brought up into the hot to “find out where everybody is.”
It should also be noted that this will be something completely separate from Corinne and DeMario’s sit-down interview with the host, which will air earlier in the season.
It’s also separate from the reunion special with the two and the rest of the cast.
As mentioned, there weren’t any proposals at the end of this journey — but some interesting (and complicated) romances did come about.
In the trailer for the season, fans see Dean crying while he admits he hates himself for being “attracted to two people.”
According to spoilers, that’s because he splits his time between the two aforementioned gals while on the show, which spurs Kristina to call it a day and leave early.
Just a couple days later, he opts to leave Danielle behind in Paradise to pursue something with the Russian beauty, but then he was spotted in L.A. not long after hanging out with “D.Lo.”

Fans have noticed that Kristina and Dean are still exchanging some social media love, but this IRL check-in with the 26-year-old hunk will help to clarify where things stand between the three.
Also in need of an update? Amanda Stanton and Robby Hayes.
The single mom and former pro swimmer were spotted holding hands a couple weeks back, causing speculation they’ve carried their Paradise fling into the real world.
Then again, that was quickly followed up with reports that Robby was seen making out with another girl.
What’s the deal with these two? Hopefully, the live finale will reveal all!
Bachelor in Paradise premieres Monday, August 14 at 8 p.m. ET on ABC.
