Tonight on Bachelor In Paradise, sass queen Alisha, dreamboat Alex and three unfamiliar faces arrived in Paradise, while veteran Jake took a stand against the friendship rose, leaving Fiji to chase his ex.
Earlier, Jessica had successfully convinced Ciarran to stay one more night, and Cass voiced her disapproval of Timm’s pot stirring. Feeling guilty that he has taken things too far, Timm contemplated leaving Paradise.
A new day brought on a lighter mood and just as things were getting back to normal, Paradise veteran Alisha arrived. Before she could settle in, Osher arrived to whisk her away on a blind date with three gentlemen who have never been on the show.
Meeting Tim, Conor and Chris, Alisha was quick to show them the bachie ropes.
While frolicking by the pool, our singles noticed a man swimming towards them. Emerging from the sea like Aquaman himself, Alex had arrived in Paradise. While Renee admitted to finding Alex attractive, his bromance with Ciarran put him firmly in the no-go zone.
The rose ceremony soon followed, and Jake decided to take a stand. Telling Osher he didn’t want to receive a friendship rose, he walked away from Paradise to chase his ex. Newcomer Tim did not receive a rose, joining Jake on the journey home.
Join us next time, when Queen Keira arrives to reign all over the Paradise parade.
