Grab your tissues and pint of Chunky Monkey Bachelorette fans, because the news we have to impart to you falls into the category of, Sometimes Life’s Just Not Fair.

Last week, we rejoiced in the news that Andi Dorfman’s fan fave contestant, Marquel Martin, was on the cast list for Bachelor in Paradise. But now, it appears that the cutie has already been booted out of the tropical locale where the show is filming. Yep, according to Reality Steve, Marquel’s return to our lives will be very short lived. Cue tears.

In his blog, RS drops the news like it isn’t hot, simply writing, “Also, Marquel and Danielle [Ronco] are both off the show.” Um, we need a minute here, buddy, because our hearts just exploded in sads.

Though little is known about the format of this latest spinoff, we do know there are rose ceremonies similar to those on The Bachelor/ette, which means the ladies of Paradise didn’t see fit to keep M-squared around. We. Are. Flabbergasted.

Marquel was rumored to be coupling up with Michelle Money down in Mexico, indicating she chose not to save him. But according to Steve, they were “never anything serious,” and now Michelle has moved on with another one of Andi’s castoffs — wait for it (and WARNING: major Spoiler for tonight’s Episode 6) — Cody Sattler. Michelle, Michelle, Michelle. Choosing Cody over Marquel? Not your best move, girl (in our humble opinion).  

Can you believe Marquel got kicked out of Paradise so fast? Tell us your thoughts.
