Inside Bachelor in Paradise star Brendan and Demi's date that ended in rejection
Demi came in hoping to stir things up, but ended up annoyed at her situation instead!
Romances have barely begun to blossom on 'Bachelor in Paradise' and there is already trouble brewing. The addition of 'Bachelor in Paradise' Season 6 winner Demi Burnett has definitely complicated things even more.
With an upcoming rose ceremony, where the men get to choose from the ladies, the women start to feel the pressure, seeing that there are currently 10 men and 13 women.
Demi came in hot into the season, ready to stir things up. While she did take a few guys away for a conversation, she did have a date card and picked Brendan to go on a date with her. While the couple were away, Natasha seemed to sulk since she thought she had a good thing going with Brendan. While Demi and Brendan were out on a date, the rest of cast played a game of rumour, seeing that there was a conversation about Brendan being involved with Pieper James, from Matt James' season. The two spent time together prior to the show, which led to everyone believing that they were an item and that Brendan was waiting for her to arrive. Fans were prepared for the chaos that ensued.
"That rumor got out of control so fast it went from "I heard Brendan talked to Pieper" to "Brendan is cheating on Pieper by being here" #BachelorInParadise" tweeted a fan. "me hopping on twitter after the Piper and Brendan thing was brought up #BachelorInParadise #BachelorNation" added another. "I LITERALLY CAN'T WAIT FOR PIPER TO SHOW UP!!! #BachelorinParadise" added a fan.

Meanwhile, Demi and Brendan started off strong on their date, but things went south very fast when Brendan said he wanted to keep his options open because, before Demi's arrival, he had been talking to women and did create a connection. Demi saw that as the ultimate betrayal and was livid. Fans didn't waste a chance to call her out.

While Brendan did clear the air after the date, Demi was still seething. It didn't help that Brendan began talking to Natasha again, resulting in Demi getting even more pissed off. It looks like contestants are going to start feeling the heat!
