Did former “Bachelor” and “Bachelorette” contestants find love in “Bachelor in Paradise”? Season 3 of the hit ABC reality series came to a close Tuesday night with three engagements. But who is truly still together after the cameras stopped rolling? We’re breaking down all of the couples:
Josh Murray and Amanda Stanton
Josh Murray proposed to Amanda Stanton in the finale. He moved to Orange County to be with her and her two young daughters, who he absolutely adores.
Evan Bass and Carly Waddell
Evan Bass got down on one knee to propose to Carly Waddell in the season finale of “Bachelor in Paradise.” They are still together and Carly has since met his kids. She has plans to move to Nashville to be with Evan this December.
Grant Kemp and Lace Morris
Although Grant appeared to get cold feet in the finale, he ultimately proposed to Lace. Since filming concluded, Lace has moved to San Francisco to be with her fiancé. They still have yet to set a wedding date, but want to get married as soon as possible.
Nick Viall and Jen Saviano
Well, “Bachelor in Paradise” viewers figured out prior to the finale that things wouldn’t work out with Nick Viall and Jen Saviano. Although the two entered the finale as a couple on Monday night — and even indulged in the fantasy suite — Nick was named the 2017 star of “The Bachelor” last Tuesday.
Nick broke up with Jen at the final rose ceremony in the finale. However, contestant Lauren Himle, who is good friends with Jen, revealed on Detroit’s Ticket radio station that “they were still seeing each other after the show completed.” She said that they were actually dating when Nick was cast for “The Bachelor.”
Jen tweeted a gif of Amy Schumer drinking a massive glass of wine after “The Bachelor” announcement was made on “After Paradise.” She joined the talk show after the finale on Tuesday to reveal that she has “mixed emotions” about Nick as “The Bachelor,” but has since moved on.
Jared Haibon and Caila Quinn
Jared Haibon and Caila Quinn left “Bachelor in Paradise” together, but they didn’t stay together. They revealed on “After Paradise” that they tried to make it work, but ultimately ended things after some “really difficult conversations.”
“We just couldn’t really get past ‘Paradise,’ and friends call him often,” Caila said, hinting about Jared’s relationship with Ashley Iaconetti. “And, he answers and things were brought up that we couldn’t really let go of, and made it really hard to move forward.”
Brett Melnick and Lauren Himle
Brett Melnick ended things with Izzy Goodkind because of his connection with Lauren, but then decided not to give out his rose. He explained to Glamour that he just “wasn’t that far into the connection” to go through with the fantasy suite. However, he’s still interested in Lauren. He told the outlet that the “connection was definitely growing.” It’s not clear if anything will happen between them now that “Bachelor in Paradise is over, but Lauren did take to Twitter to respond to Brett’s Glamour interview:
Vinny Ventiera and Izzy Goodkind
“Bachelor in Paradise” viewers watched Monday as Vinny Ventiera shot down Izzy’s efforts to get back together. Despite a photo obtained by TMZ showing Vinny and Izzy looking extremely close at LAX in late August, the two reportedly have not rekindled their romantic relationship. Izzy explained to Hollywood Life that they “created an unbelievable friendship.”
