Fights, shakeups and a whole lot of drama unfolded before the second rose ceremony on Bachelor in Paradise during the Monday, August 19, episode. A whopping five guys and one girl left the beach after they weren’t able to make a connection in Mexico.
During the elimination ceremony, fans said goodbye to Cam Ayala, Kevin Fortenberry and Wills Reid. In a turn of events, Onyeka Ehie eliminated herself since she didn’t find a connection on the hit show. Shockingly, Jordan Kimball and Christian Estrada were also booted off the show after the two got into a legit fight on the beach that ended with security having to break it up.
The brawl broke out after Christian tried to interfere with Clay Harbor and Nicole Alvar-Lopez. Jordan stepped in to defend his pal and attempted to throw Christian’s piñata in the ocean. However, the Latin stud grabbed his arm and chaos ensued.
Of course, the established couples were safe: Demi Burnett and Derek Peth, Katie Morton and Chris Bukowski, Caelynn Miller-Keyes and Dean Unglert, Nicole and Clay. There were two new budding romances between Tayshia Adams and John Paul Jones and Sydney Lotuaco and Mike Johnson. However, there were a few wild cards — Hannah Godwin gave Dylan Harbour a rose instead of Blake Horstmann. But Blake isn’t leaving the beach quite yet since Kristina Schulman gave him a rose.
When Blake’s name was called, everyone was shocked. “I came here for a pure experience, and Blake got rewarded. That is just me. It is very messed up,” Cam said in his confessional. Kevin also agreed that it wasn’t fair that Blake still got another chance at love.
Even though Kristina and Blake previously dated, Wills couldn’t understand why she would want Blake to stay in Mexico after he brought drama to the show.
“I think people were surprised with my decision tonight,” Kristina said. “Blake would have to watch Hannah and Dylan together. He accepted my rose, and he is choosing to stay in his personal hell. It’s kind of mean, but it’s Blake we’re talking about. The temptation is too good.”
What goes around comes around, right?
