Season 5 of the ABC hit reality show, Bachelor in Paradise, began August 7th. You can tune in on Monday and Tuesday nights from 8-10 pm. It is only 7 episodes in and the drama is real. The show is sort of a combination between the Bachelor and Bachelorette. One week the girls will have the roses and the ability to choose the guy they want to stay on the show. And the next week the guys will have the power. It takes place at Playa Escondida in Mexico, a luxury resort on the beach. With the season halfway over, here is what you need to know to stay up to date with the tea.

The couples so far are Tia and Colton, Kevin and Astrid, and Jubilee and John. John is actually the programmer for the Venmo app. Everyone’s else relationships are a little rocky. But that’s just how it goes in paradise. Kendall was in a strong relationship with Joe, aka Grocery Store Joe, until long haired hunk Leo arrived and swept her off her feet. The same situation happened with Krystal and Chris R (aka Goose). They both had an ongoing relationship, however Connor, a charming fitness coach,made Krystal question her loyalty to Chris. Yet, the same issue is occuring with Jenna and Jordan. The two were getting along very well in Paradise, until Benoit, a romantic Canadian, steals the show.

As you can see, love triangles are very common. I found some fellow reality TV addicts to hear their opinions on the season so far.  

First I went to my own dad to find his opinion, as he joins me in watching. He says

“I think there has been too much attention paid to some characters like Tia, Krystal and Jordan, Chris, some like Angela and Joe, you forget are still around. Also as the show attempts to cross racial lines it’s still very “white”.

Then I found Chase Mitchum, who is almost as big of a reality TV fan as me. Chase explains that “There are strong couples this season but also some distasteful characters from past seasons. Mainly, Krystal and Kenny. Jubilee and John, Astrid and Kevin are my favorites. I think they deserve more airtime. Thank goodness that the producers brought characters from Bachelor Winter Games. We do need a juicy villain character.”

Another opinionated fan, Rifah Tasnia,states her thoughts, “I think it is a lot more drama filled than the last seasons, they only filmed in 12 days because of all the drama going on. I do like Chris and Krystal, but I love Kenny. Chase is wrong about him”

Sarah Norman spills her views on the season so far, “Grocery store Joe is the best, Kendall should not have left him for Leo. And this Chris turned into a two-timing snake. I kinda ended up liking Jordan, he is kinda a villain, but does have some depth to him. His anger issues are scary. This is the most dramatic season yet.

Lastly, I got Bachelor fanatic Jessica Forney to give me her opinions, “It is very obvious this season when the producers tell the contestants to talk to others. Venmo John is my favorite, I would marry him. A lot of people aren’t getting enough air time, but I do love the bartenders Wells and Yuki”.

Be sure to tune in next week to get your weekly cup of tea.
