The Bachelor in Paradise season 5 finale aired on ABC on Tuesday night, and the question at the end was simple: Who got engaged?
This year, there were in fact two separate engagements that happened in the form of Chris and Krystal, and then Jordan and Jenna. Both were a big part of this season, and it’s also somewhat interesting in that many of these people were fairly polarizing through much of their time in the franchise.
Will these relationships turn into something more? Well, Paradise at least does have a little bit of a history of success in between Tanner and Jade and then also Evan and Carly. It’s not the easiest show to make a relationship work out of, but clearly there is enough evidence out there that something can.
Beyond the people involved, we do of course think that there is one other important question worth pondering: Do these engagements matter all that much to the show’s success? We do think that one or two of them are useful for giving the show more credibility, but beyond that, it’s hard to really feel like this is the primary reason why viewers are watchers. Instead, this is more of a show about the craziness, the headlines, and the headlines that tend to come after the fact.
In this case, though, the news that has come out over the past few hours is almost more interesting than the reports themselves: Claims that Jenna may have cheated on Jordan with someone else. This is coming out first via Reality Steve, with more information / quotes from the cast over at ET Online. She has yet to comment on anything on the subject, and since the Paradise reunion was not taped live, there was no time in which to address it.
