'Bachelor in Paradise' season 3 premiere: Several couples reportedly get engaged


Rumors have it that several couples who are going to have their second or third chances in love during the upcoming season 3 of ABC’s reality dating spin-off series “Bachelor in Paradise” will end up getting engaged.

Fans will be reunited with some of their favorite “The Bachelor” and “The Bachelorette” contestants who have been eliminated from past seasons. They will return to Sayulita, Mexico and live together in the stunning beachside resort Playa Escondida in Vallarta-Nayarit as they try to develop a romantic connection.

According to Heavy, Josh Murray (season 10) will apparently get engaged to Amanda Stanton (season 20). Although Josh is not included in the initial cast list, it is speculated that he will be added in future installments. Similar to the freshman and sophomore runs, new contenders will be introduced each week to shake things up between budding couples. A rose ceremony will determine who stays and who goes home.

Moreover, Grant Kemp (season 12) and Lace Morris (season 20) will also allegedly have their happily ever after. They are said to even have matching tattoos that read “Grace,” which is a combination of their names. It is rumored that the two will be engaged during the show.

Joining the successful pairings are Ashley Iaconetti (season 19) with Wells Adams (season 12), and Nick Viall (seasons 10 and 11) with Jen Saviano (season 20). However, both will break up. The former couple will reportedly call it quits just before the overnight dates take place, while the latter will go through it together. In the end, they will eventually end their relationship before the series officially wraps up. The reason for their separation is deemed to be the long distance.

On the other hand, there is also hearsay that Evan Bass (season 12) and Carly Waddell (season 19) will be lucky during their time in paradise as they found each other.

Season 3 of “Bachelor in Paradise” is slated to premiere on Tuesday, Aug. 2. Since there are no official previews yet, available information should be taken with a grain of salt.
