If you’re like us, ABC’s latest reality dating show Bachelor in Paradise has reignited your passion for life. The drama, the hot bodies, the clever editing (Clare Crawley talking to a raccoon, anyone?), and the cray cray that has already surfaced mean we’re hooked on BiP for life — or at least for the next five weeks. So what can we expect from our new guilty pleasure next? So much more drama!

ABC’s press release for Episode 2 promises a major scandal with Michelle Kujawa and a member of the production crew. Turns out the love Michelle “maybe” found in Paradise was with a sound guy, and their hanky panky resulted in a trip to the ER. Whoever said love hurts must have dated M.K. in a past life...


Two new Bachelors arrive at the tiki hut this week, and according to Reality Steve they are Chris Bukowski (Emily Maynard’s season of The Bachelorette) and Zack Kalter (Desiree Hartsock’s season of The Bachelorette). Raccoon buddy Clare gets a date with both men, enjoying a couple’s massage with one and a trip to Tulum Village with the other. Good on ya, girl!

Marcus Grodd’s coup from Episode 1, in which he gave Lacy Faddoul his rose before Robert Graham, earns Marcus a romantic dinner date with the breastacular Lacy, making Robbie G jelly. Simmer down guys, there’s enough of Lacy to go around… she’s kind of said so herself!

Meanwhile, Elise Mosca lays it on strong with Dylan Petitt, but he tries to put the brakes on due to his heart still being tenderized thanks to Andi Dorfman. Elise doesn’t like brakes, so she goes full throttle with one of the new guys (we hear it’s Chris B) to make Dyls take note. D. Pett is not one to be manipulated, however, and he tells Elise to take a hike in her very unsuitable for hiking stilettos. Dylan also gets a date card and, instead of asking Elise, invites another woman, which “causes some drama amongst the others.” RS says it’s sweet Sarah Herron.

Nearing the end of the week, the cast is “shocked when they discover that one deceitful bachelor has been lying to everyone and has a girlfriend back home!” Dun dun dun. Steve says that Marcus finds a letter from a girlfriend in Ben Scott’s suitcase. Who? you ask. That guy with the “bad rep” from Des’s season of The Bachelorette from whom we’ve hardly heard a peep.

So how does the show end? Apparently, “one woman’s decision leaves everyone talking” and one of the guys doesn’t accept the rose he’s given. What now?! We can’t wait to see how it all plays out next Monday!

Who are you most looking forward to seeing on next week’s episode and what do you think of the couples so far? Comment away!
