Welcome back to Bachelor in Paradise! Former contestant Jen Saviano is arriving on the beach during the August 20 episode, and it looks like she’s going to shake things up for Chris Bukowski and Katie Morton. The Bachelor Nation alum is unbelievably gorgeous, so it’s no surprise that she may cause a little drama.
Here’s a little history lesson for those of you who are new here. The 29-year-old beauty first appeared as a contestant on Ben Higgins’ season. Despite not having a ton of camera time during her 5 weeks on the show, she definitely made a splash among fans. The Nashville resident then tried her luck at love on season 3 of Paradise. She arrived during the third week and Nick Viall quickly fell for her. However, they ended up splitting during week 6.
“I wanted to say I was in love with you, but something in my heart just said I can’t,” Nick told Jen during the season finale. “Sometimes you wish you could tell your heart what to do, and if I could, I would tell it to choose you. I just feel like something’s telling me to say goodbye. I’m sorry. My biggest fear is that I’m going to regret it.” After his appearance on Paradise, Nick went on to become be the Bachelor during season 21.
During After Paradise, Jen later admitted that she had “mixed emotions” about Nick being chosen as the leading man but noted, “I’ve moved on, and I’m doing good.” As of now, she runs a blog and is clearly living her best life full of travel, bikinis and wine.
She’s looking for love on the beach again and it looks like she and Chris instantly click, but does she manage to stick around? Keep reading to see what happens. Caution: Season 6 spoilers are below!
Chris looks very into Jen, but their relationship starts and ends with one date. The following elimination ceremony, the former Bachelor Pad contestant gives his rose to Katie and the brunette beauty is sent home, according to Reality Steve.
Jen is here for a good time but not a long time. That’s Paradise for you!
