What the heck is going on here?! The more we watched the Bachelor in Paradise two-night finale trailer, the more we noticed that hardly any of the clips from the reunion are actually… well… from the reunion. But what about that part where someone proposes? Does anyone even really get engaged, or is it all just one big editing trick?
First, watch the trailer.
From the second they show the reunion set, it becomes a tricky franken-trailer!
Like, literally, the first image we get of the set, is from last year’s BIP reunion. You can even see the blonde twins Emily and Haley Ferguson sitting in the back.
Oh, and this clip of Tia? It’s from the Women Tell All special after Arie’s season of The Bachelor. Like, look at the roses on the table and the dress.
If you hadn’t noticed, Wills is in the same suit as he wore to the Men Tell All special, and we all know someone as stylish as Wills is no outfit-repeater.
And how about that hug between Bibiana and Yuki? It was lifted straight from the Bachelor Winter Games finale, when Benoit proposed to Clare.
Which, BTW, is also where that proposal scene is from. Reality Steve was the first to notice this.
Just watch this old clip, you’ll see it:
And there’s plenty more. Krystal’s “Hiyeee” is from Women Tell All, the clip of Joe is from Men Tell All (he’s wearing the same shirt), and one clip even accidentally showed Lesley Murphy from Winter Games!
But does anyone actually propose, like, this year at the reunion?
BIP producers may have been forced to make due with recycled footage, because the reunion was only filmed one week ago. But, is it honest? Does anyone get engaged on the reunion special? Apparently not! While Reality Steve originally speculated that Krystal and Chris got engaged after leaving Paradise, he clarified on Twitter on Sept. 5. “Nobody got engaged at the reunion show,” he wrote. “It’s old footage to make you think someone did.” Lame!
