VALLARTA, MEXICO: In the dramatic October 18 episode of 'Bachelor in Paradise' Season 8, fresh faces wreaked havoc on the beach. As thrilled as fans were to see the new men arrive, many were disappointed to see them unable to connect with the newly relocated ladies.

In the two-hour episode, there was a new twist: five new women from the Bachelor Nation franchise came to the beach to look for love. The current women on the show were taken away and moved to a different place, which made them upset that their partners might meet new men. But the game went in a completely different direction when the women met five new men. Even though things got off to a good start, things quickly slowed down since the ladies don't appear to be interested in the new entrants.

On Monday night's episode, after being taken away from the beach, the OG ladies shouted angrily into the void, "F**k you, Jesse Palmer!" Serene and Genevieve couldn't stop thinking about Brandon and Aaron, respectively, and let Jesse know when he came with good news. When the host disclosed that he'd brought five new men for them to meet, their opinions rapidly shifted. "Thanks, Jesse, I like you again," Genevieve joked.

Adam from Australia's Bachelor franchise, Rick and Olu from Michelle Young's season, Tyler from Rachel Recchia's season, and Alex from Rachel Lindsay's season were the "five shiny new toys," in Victoria's words. After the initial euphoria went off, Serene and Genevieve concluded they didn't want to date anybody else – a decision that Brandon and Aaron had already made, unknown to them. That made things unpleasant for the new guys, as Adam described the resort's mood as "weird," while Rick revealed that he "was expecting more" from Paradise.

Some fans have expressed their feeling on the current situation, saying, "Paradise is wasting the incredible men that came in. Olu, Rick and Tyler deserve their own seasons." Fearing the newbies will have to leave because of their lack of connection formed, a fan wrote: "They better not send these newbies home, give them a chance to meet each other cause the girls were not giving these guys the time of day and they have some QUALITY contenders who deserve." Unhappy to see Jill crying over Jacob, a fan tweeted: "Imagine having Olu , Alex and Rick in the hotel and someone like Jill is crying about a man who walks around cosplaying as Tarzan?!?! Those men deserve better. Like Luce, Rodney was not going to end up with you knowing Eliza was coming. BFFR." Hoping to see the girls give the new men opportunity, a viewer wrote: "I hope they give the opportunity to the casa amor boys to meet the casa amor girls because they deserve better."

Rick and Olu fans wrote: "Rick & Olu deserve actual sand time and if they don’t get to meet the single girls on sand after this week?? I will be furious." Another fan suggested how these men should return the next season as original cast for a better shot at love: "These new guys deserve better. Hopefully they come back next year as regular cast. I mean Alex and Olu would never be left alone in another season." Suggesting what the producers could have done instead, a fan wrote: "At this point they probably should've given the new guys to the new girls cause this is a waste of everyone's time." Another fan quipped: "Hey guys, come waste 2 weeks of your summer at hotel hell, where the girls will glare and there’s a chlorine pool instead of a beautiful beach."
