Bachelor in Paradise Finale & Reunion

Busy week but I finally had a chance to watch the Finale and Reunion!!! Let’s dive in. We pick up with the 4 remaining couples- Clay & Nicole, Demi & Kristian, Chris & Katie, and Hannah G & Dylan. They are all set to go to Fantasy Suites but when Clay and Nicole get to their FS, Clay says he still has reservations and wants to spend tonight thinking. Alone. Ouch. So Clay leaves Nicole alone to enjoy the FS.
The next day is proposal day. Clay and Nicole are up first. Nicole says “Do you love me?” and Clay responds with “I’m not there yet”. Ouch again! But then he says he wants to take it slow and leave together. That’s not good enough for our Poor Man’s JLO so Nicole runs off and they leave separately.
Chris & Katie- Chris proposes and Katie says yes and it’s sooo sweet!!! Katie, Chris, and I all cry!!!
Next up are HG & Dylan- Dylan SHOCKS US ALL by proposing! Duh! That boy’s been wanting to propose since day 1. Luckily HG says yes.
Demi & Kristian- Demi gets down on one knee!!! She proposes and Kristian says yes and I’m crying again!
Then all the couples come down to the beach for hugs and celebrations!
Reunion- My favorite part of all this!!!
WHY does Dean look like an ole timey oil tycoon??? He’s wearing a bolo tie and it’s just strange.
Chris Harrison starts us off with Derek & JPJ’s feud. When asked if he would like to apologize JPJ just says “What happened was unfortunate.” Come on JPJ!!! Be a big man & apologize!!!!
Jordan & Christian- Neither will apologize for their fight. In fact, there’s security on hand just in case they get out of hand!!! But they have very little talk time and the show goes on.
Caelynn/Dean/Connor- Cae says things are going great with Dean and that she’s slept in the van a couple nights! Connor and Whitney are still together. Yay!
Kristina/Blake/Caelynn- Everyone’s trying to get Blake to apologize for releasing text messages between him and Caelynn. Blake finally apologizes for how she’s feeling and that she took some heat because of the texts but he never actually apologizes for releasing the texts!!! Dean consoles her backstage.
Then Chris Harrison brings out the established, married BIP couples- Chris & Krystal, Carly & Evan, and Jade & Tanner and their kids. Carly is pregnant with baby #2 so they do a gender reveal.
Back to the current BIP peeps. JPJ & Tayshia- Tayshia is up on stage and CH asks her if she made a mistake saying goodbye to JPJ and she says “Very much so”!!! SO it turns out Tay flew to Maryland to surprise JPJ!!! When she gets to his house she tells him she wants to explore things with him and he asks her to be his girlfriend! So cute! JPJ then comes up on stage and they kiss. CH asks JPJ if he loves Tayshia and JPJ drops to one knee and recites some Shakespeare. Tay about stroked out thinking he was going to propose!
Katie & Chris- Katie says she’s exhausted. And she’s not wearing her engagement ring! But she says they are still engaged. Chris comes out and acts all emotionally unavailable. Chris puts Katie’s ring back on her but backstage they argue and Chris walks away.
Dylan & HG are still engaged and she STILL has the personality of a potato.
Demi & Kristian come out to a standing ovation. After they talk to CH for a bit Kristian has Demi stand up. Then Kristian gets on one knee and proposes!!!Another standing O!!!
Peter comes out as the next Bachelor with a fresh haircut. January 6 it all starts again! Until then my BBs!!! xoxo 🌹
