What better way to close out your Labor Day holiday weekend than with those crazy kids down in Tulum, Mexico on Bachelor in Paradise. That’s right, the addictive ABC spin-off is back for its sixth and penultimate episode tonight, September 1, and while you may have thought things were settling into a rhythm, two new guys come in and change the face of the game entirely!


First, we’ve got the man that broke Desiree Hartsock’s heart on The Bachelorette 9, Brooks Forester, who arrives just in time to rattle the shaky relationship between Sarah Herron and Robert Graham. According to the official synopsis, “Sarah is excited when new bachelor Brooks Forester arrives in Paradise, which causes her to question her relationship with Robert.” Uh oh...

Or maybe not? While that may cause a little further damage to Sarah and Rob, it’s actually Jackie Parr that goes on a date with the floppy haired fella! The beauty leaves her recent cuddle buddy Zack Kalter behind to enjoy a romantic dinner date with Brooks. However, that doesn’t stop Zack from turning right around and inviting Jackie right back out for his own swim-filled date, meanwhile making it known that “he’s not going to let Jackie go without a fight.”

The other newbie on the scene is Tasos Hernandez, who you may or may not recall from Andi Dorfman’s recent Bachelorette season (he wasn’t given much airtime). Sounds ilke he may have more success this go-around, though, when he moves in on Christy Hansen after she finds out that love interest Jesse Kovacs has been hooking up with other ladies!

Other dates of the week? There’s the trustworthy romance of Lacy Faddoul and Marcus Grodd, who hit up the “enchanting Cenote Dos Ojos” aka another cave. Plus, the other blossoming couple of Cody Sattler and Michelle Moneyreach an impasse when Michelle finds herself “overwhelmed and wonders if she should break things off with the fast-moving Cody.”

So which hunk, Zack or Brooks, will Jackie give her rose to? Will Christy have the nerve to drop player Jesse for sweet Tasos? And who is the man that ABC says “decides he no longer wants to stay in paradise”? Guess we’ll have to tune in tonight to find out!

Bachelor in Paradise airs tonight, September 1 at 8 p.m. ET on ABC.
