It’s the morning after and everyone is still reeling from last night’s dramatic events. Chelsie Webster, who arrived with a date card, decides to ask out Nick Peterson, who is instantly motivated to end his relationship with Ashley Salter. The new duo head off to enjoy an ocean cruise on a luxurious yacht and snorkel in the turquoise waters of Paradise. Despite the romantic setting, this handsome couple lacks chemistry, leaving Chelsie in the “friend zone.”
Later, Mackenzie Deonigi arrives in Paradise and gets the lowdown on the available men. She decides to take Justin Reich and they head off into the jungle where they encounter a Shaman who puts them through an elaborate native ceremony conducted entirely in Spanish. Then at the end, they are pronounced “married,” leaving the couple stunned.
That same night a feisty new arrival, Jaclyn Swartz, arrives to Paradise ready to stir up the drama. She quickly sets her sights on Jared Haibon, who has long been claimed by Ashley Iaconetti.

With a date card in hand, Ashley I. quickly whisks her unenthusiastic man away before Jaclyn can sink her claws into him.
