Warning: Spoilers ahead! Read on at your own risk.

We know you’re just beginning to get acquainted with the Bachelor in Paradise cast (and their blossoming romances), but let’s fast forward a little bit, shall we? Thanks to the wonders of the internet — and the spoilery goodness of Reality Steve — we already know that three couples came out of the reality show intact. Now, filming concluded over a month ago, so a lot can change in that time, but we had to know: Which pair has lasting power?

Luckily, we spoke exclusively with a source close to the show who revealed the duo that they think might actually make it in the long run. And guess what? It’s not who you think it is! To review, the two couples left standing at the end were: Lacy Faddoul and Marcus Grodd, and Cody Sattler and Michelle Money. The third match up was Elise Mosca and Chris Bukowski, who had already left the show, but were supposedly still an item out in the real world (though recent news has disputed that).While we hear that Lacy and Marcus are actually engaged to be wed (seriously!), it’s the other couple that our source sees making it in the long run.

“Cody and Michelle surprisingly might have something there,” the insider states, though they admit they haven’t seen them interact much since taping ended. “Everything since then has been very hush-hush, very ‘we can’t be too close to each other, we can’t hold hands.’”

Yes, we know what you’re thinking — this is a reality show! How often do these love matches last? Well, we feel you on that one, though we’d also kindly point to Sean Lowe and Catherine Giudici, Trista and Ryan Sutter, and Jason and Molly Mesnick as proof otherwise. Cody and Michelle have as good a shot as any of these happily married duos!

But first, we’ve got to get to the moment when blond buffster and his Miss Money meet. Right now, she’s keeping close contact with Prints Charming Marquel Martin, so hmmm...

Which pairing do you see making it in the long run? Sound off in the comments below.
