‘Bachelor in Paradise 2’ spoilers: On Ashley Iaconetti, Jared Haibon, Clare Crawley, and aftermath

AshleyWhen you remember here that “Bachelor in Paradise” basically has to fill up three hours’ worth of programming each and every week moving forward this season, there is one thing that you absolutely should expect: The producers are going to try and get their money’s worth every single opportunity that they can.

Yesterday, we reported that on Sunday night’s new episode of the series, there would be a little bit of drama that erupts over a controversial decision by Jared Haibon to decide to ask Clare Crawley on a date rather than Ashley Iaconetti, the woman who clearly has the most interest in him out of everyone. What’s the reasoning for this? The simple answer here seems to be that he just wants to see what his options are, and give several different relationships a chance.

Well, we’ve now got the synopsis for the Monday episode that proves that this story is going to carry over to the second part of the story airing on Monday. Both Mikey and Ashley seem to be rather unhappy that their potential romance partners may be moving on to someone else:

“The morning after a dramatic night in Paradise, the cast is still reeling from Jared’s controversial decision to ask Clare to be his date. Mikey and Ashley I. are left feeling deserted and heartbroken by the decision. Despite the drama, Jared and Clare head out on one of the most adventurous dates of the season, taking a sailboat to a small island where they go bungee jumping. Meanwhile at the house, Ashley I. is distraught that her love interest is out on the date, possibly falling in love with another woman. When the happy couple returns, Ashley I.’s fears are confirmed, leaving both ladies vying for the bachelor’s heart.”

As we said yesterday, though, we’re not taking this as a sign that the story is over for Jared and Ashley or even Mikey and Clare. Paradise is several episodes long, and there is plenty of opportunity for some other crazy things to happen.
