In just six days now, the crazy trainwreck that is “Bachelor in Paradise” will be upon us; before that happens, though, we can at least tell you now who some of the early givers and recipients of date cards are!
Yep, date cards are still a part of this show. There are a handful of them every year, with the major twist being that only a few people will get them, and they have to use these to figure out who stays in paradise, and who gets sent home. Based on what we see in the synopsis below, it looks that Clare Crawley, Marquel Martin, Sarah Herron, and a couple of others may have the early advantage:
“Throughout the week, date cards arrive for four lucky women who get a chance to ask out a man they’d like to spend time with, though it’s not without causing drama. Clare is the first to get a date card but when she asks out a certain bachelor, one of the other women in the house stakes her claim and persuades Clare to un-invite him. In order to appease her, Clare decides to ask out Robert. Together they visit the ancient and majestic Tulum Ruins where they explore the historical landmark and frolic in the crystal clear ocean. Later, Sarah receives the second date card and asks out Marcus who, unbeknownst to her, may be smitten by another woman. Marcus accepts and the couple travels to Coba where they rappel into Tankah -ha Cenote, a beautiful underwater sinkhole where they share a kiss! A third date card goes to an unexpected surprise arrival who invites Marquel to go horseback riding along the romantic beach of Playa del Carmen. Lastly, the fourth date card goes to Lacy, who struggles to decide which of her two suitors to take.”
The funny thing to remember here is that this is a very long season, so there is almost no point in trying to figure out who in the world is going to stay or leave the show thanks to the dates that we have here. We would think that Marquel would be good for a while based on his popularity, but who knows? That could make him more of a target. Without knowing all the rules, this is a tough show to follow.
