But at the first rose ceremony of the season, two disappointed woman are sent home, ending their journey to finding love in Paradise!
The morning after the rose ceremony, a notorious bachelor arrives! Holding a date card, he takes out the bachelorette much to the annoyance of the newcomer’s long-time nemesis. The two bachelors have a heated past, and one of the bachelors is helpless to do anything but watch the couple’s very intense PDA. Will history repeat itself, or will the bachelor vet fight for love?

“Episode 302B” – In the next episode that airs TUESDAY, AUGUST 9 (8:00–9:00 p.m. EDT), the women have the power, and things are really beginning to heat up! There are a few couples who have established their relationship in the house and aren’t afraid to show it. One particular bachelor in the house is feeling especially annoyed since the aggressive suitor basically came in and stole his girl yet again!
A recent bachelor of JoJo’s season arrives in the house with a date card in hand. He asks out a veteran bachelorette, leaving another guy in the house upset since he has been hanging out with the beauty and was counting on her rose! They have an adventurous date of zip-lining and repelling in Mexico that ends with a romantic kiss by a waterfall! After they return to the house, the bachelor is jealous and decides to make his move by setting up his own private date to try and win her over. A new love triangle has formed!
A favorite bachelor tells the group about his hot pepper kiss date he had with a special woman, but she doesn’t feel the same and sends him into a wave of despair.
There’s a new arrival in Paradise that no one seems to know. The girls think the new bachelor is cute, but no one, including Chris Harrison, can figure out who he is. He asks out one of the twins, and the two go on a romantic dinner date where the girls plan a prank on him!
When one bachelor knows he is going home since he was recently dumped, he plants a fake date card addressed to him so he can tell his original love interest how he feels.
