'Bachelor in Paradise': Inside Joe Amabile's love triangle with Kendall and Serena P
Joe might have to now pick between his past and his possible future
For the participants of 'Bachelor in Paradise', it's all about finding love. For Joe Amabile, the third time might be the charm. Seeing that he couldn't win Becca Kufrin's heart on Season 14 of 'The Bachelorette', he managed to find love on Season 5 of 'Bachelor in Paradise' with Kendall Long. However, their relationship hit a snag when the couple couldn't agree on which city to stay in after the show. Having broken up with Kendall, Joe is back on 'Bachelor in Paradise' yet again and seems to have found love with Serena Pitt. But his happiness might be short-lived.
In an interesting twist of events, Kendall is now a part of the show. And the first thing on her agenda was to talk to Joe about their relationship and what exactly went down between them. And just like that, Joe found himself having to pick between his past and his possible future.

Kendall's arrival definitely made things difficult for Joe, as she went on to bring up their relationship. However, Joe pointed out that their breakup was an amicable one, seeing that they couldn't agree on an important decision without one of them compromising. For Joe, they didn't try hard enough was a reason for them not to revisit the situation. He stated that while he didn't know if he loved Kendall, he did not want to ruin things with Serena. Fans seemed to be on his side of the whole situation.
"So something doesn't feel settled and done for Kendall only until Joe is exploring new option in paradise??? #bachelorinparadise" tweeted a fan.
"As much as I love Kendall, Joe is in the right here (IMO) bc if you you rlly love someone and want it to work, you would at least try and move w them back home if that's what they need to be happy? Idk like a year isn't that long to test the waters #BachelorInParadise" added another.
"It's Kendall's seeming unwilling to compromise that broke them up, and it feels like she's still trying to make it about her and what she wants, so… Yeah, I wouldn't go back to that if I was Joe. #BachelorInParadise" pointed out another."But Kendall, if you're not willing to move to Chicago, and that hasn't changed, then what the hell are you doing there?!!! #bachelorinparadise" asked a fan.

Despite the drama, fans appreciated the way Joe and Serena handled the situation, seeing that he spoke to her immediately. Joe was very open that he cared for her deeply and wouldn't force her to be a part of anything she didn't want to.
"This Kendall, Joe, Serena drama is the most real thing I've ever seen on #bachelorinparadiseabc I'm actually surprised we are getting this much of a look inside their breakup.

"Ok wait I love joe for going to Serena FIRST and explaining everything that happened with Kendall and where he's at, as well as asking her how she's feeling I feel like it's the first time I've seen this on bachelor nation lmaooo #bachelorinparadise" agreed another. "Okay but serenas handling this so well. some girls on this beach should take NOTES #bachelorinparadise" pointed out another. "Noah and Abigail should take notes on how to do a relationship talk from Serena and Joe. Scratch that - they ALL should take notes. #bachelorinparadise #BIP" added a fan.
