‘Bachelor in Paradise’ 2022 Spoilers: Second Rose Ceremony to see twelve men vying for only 7 roses
Some believe that every great art draws from others, which could be the case with 'Bachelor In Paradise.' What distinguishes Paradise from the franchise's primary shows is how much it depends on jealousy to build drama. On 'The Bachelor' or 'The Bachelorette,' only one person must weigh their feelings for multiple people, whereas Paradise requires the entire cast to assess their connections for everyone at all times. And it appears that Season 8 of Paradise is drawing inspiration from other reality dating series in order to heighten the envy.
Jesse Palmer informs the cast in the teaser for 'BiP' Season 8 that their "relationships are about to be put to the test," before adding that "everything is about to change." Jesse then introduces five new women before asking the remaining women to collect their belongings and depart right away. It's unclear where the original 'BiP' women are being taken to or how long they'll be gone for, but the twist is sure to throw a kink in their amorous desires.
Although the premise of introducing a slew of new women for drama's sake feels evocative of 'Temptation Island,' the twist is quite evocative of 'Love Island's Casa Amor. Each season of 'Love Island' features a quasi-test in which the couples separate from one another to meet new suitors without being watched by their partner. It's as entertaining as it is messy. This 'BiP' adjustment will not only make things difficult for stable couples; every season, many cast members scramble for roses before elimination ceremonies. As painful as it might be to envision your lover openly flirting with someone else while you are away, it may be more difficult to maintain your composure when you have no strong ties and no chance of creating them.
Since the number of women in the current season of 'Bachelor in Paradise' is dropping, some single men are looking for a potential connection and a rose by the end of the night. For various reasons, contestants such as Teddi, Sierra, and newcomer Sally have previously self-eliminated from the show. Kira returned in the previous episode to try to connect with Jacob, but she ended up departing the beach with newfound love interest Romeo. With guys vying for the roses this week and women having the power to give them to their preferred suitor, tensions are growing.
According to Reality Steve, Serene will give her rose to Brandon, her first and only connection she explored on the beach, during the Second Rose Ceremony. Shanae may return to exploring her connection with Logan rather than James. Victoria is most likely to give Johnny her rose and Genevieve to Aaron.
'Bachelor In Paradise' airs Mondays and Tuesdays at 8 pm EDT on ABC.
