Time to bring yourself back to early July, when you were still wrapped up in Andi Dorfman’s budding love story with Josh Murray (and Nick Viallwomp). At the time, we told you about an “offensive” situation that went down with Jesse Kovacs during Bachelor in Paradise filming. Ring a bell? Well, that’s going to be covered during tonight’s Episode 5, and now we finally have more inside scoop on what really happens.


An insider close to the show tells Wetpaint Entertainment exclusively that Jesse receives date cards from newbies Christy Hansen and “free spirit” Lucy Aragon — both survivors of Juan Pablo Galavis’s Season 18. What occurs next is pretty juicy...

Seems like the 32-year-old hunk was looking to really make the most of his time in Paradise, as he hooks up with both Christy and Lucy — in an interesting order. Lucy’s date is up first, and our source tells us that during the long limo ride back (and after some drinks), they get to (ahem) know one another in the backseat.

All par for the course in Paradise, but another BiP insider tells us that upon arrival back at the house, Jesse reconnects with Christy and the two hook up that very same night. The next morning, we hear that Jesse dishes to his fellow bros on the cast that he woke up in between both girls — though none of the locker room-esque talk was captured on-camera.

Despite all that, the insider says that a few of those guys (Marcus Grodd, in particular) tell the girls about the bro-talk, and it “all blows up.” Funnily enough, Marcus is said to be one of the people who laughed hardest at the story when he first heard it. Hmm.

After all that, it’s a bit of a mess for Jillian Harris’s ex. “He gets confronted about it as he is leaving, and all of the girls think he’s super disrespectful for telling the guys,” the source tells us.

And yet, we may not see much of any of this in the end! Both sources say that there’s a chance ABC may not even go into the drama. Word from the crew is that there’s not much shown after editing “either because it’s a family show or because they don’t want to dive into it too deeply.”

For his part, Reality Steve also has scoop on the situation, and here’s what he had to say: “The show will absolutely make it seem like they [had sex] tonight, and will even insinuate a threesome happened with Jesse, Christy, and Lucy. Of course they will. There was no threesome, and I don’t believe there was any sex either. Just some serious, uhhhhh, petting. I think.”

So what really happened? And will we see any of it discussed on tonight’s ep? We’ll have to tune in and see!

Bachelor in Paradise airs tonight, August 26 at 8 p.m. ET on ABC.
