The dramatic rose ceremony continues following Clare Crawley’s unexpected meltdown, on Bachelor in Paradise. While Chris Harrison tries to keep Clare from making an irrational decision, Juelia Kinney faces a difficult choice between Joe Bailey, who she’s falling for, and two other suitors.
As the week begins, a beautiful new Bachelorette, Samantha Steffen, arrives in Paradise with a date card and invites Joe. As the two embark on their date, they leave Playa Escondida holding hands, leaving Juelia extremely disheartened. Joe and Samantha head to a gorgeous rooftop pool at the exquisite Vidanta Resort, where they learn they will be doing a sexy photo shoot for PEOPLE. While things get hot and heavy between the blossoming couple, back at the house the cast is convinced Joe manipulated Juelia to give him her rose. When they return, his friends pressure him to smooth things out with Juelia, but Joe is anything but apologetic, and things get especially awkward when Samantha walks into the middle of it.
A new date card arrives for Carly Waddell, who invites her hesitant man, Kirk Dewindt, to dine at a beachfront hotel where they discuss their relationship and ultimately turn their evening together into an overnight date. Meanwhile, a loopy Ashley S., who is falling for Dan Cox, is shocked when he tells her he has serious doubts about their relationship. Then, after getting lost in “Old Mexico,” blonde bombshell Megan Bell finally arrives in Paradise with a date card, and decides to ask out an unclaimed JJ Lane.
