A Love Triangle

The season opener, as it turns out, quickly breeds a love triangle consisting of  Ashley I., her crush Jared and sought-after Jade. But Jade becomes the least of Ashley’s worries as other women start making the moves on Jared.

First Dates

Ashley I. gets the first date card and asks out Jared, who reluctantly agrees. They explore a jungle by riding an ATV and head to a private beach where they get to know each other and eventually form a connection. 

Jade becomes the recipient of the other date card. Thinking she might interfere with Jared and Ashley, she asks out Tanner instead.

Ashley Salter becomes ill and must be taken to the hospital by an ambulance but when she recovers, she gets a date card and chooses Dan Cox as her companion to travel to old town Puerto Vallarta for a romantic dinner.

Another date card arrives for Clare Crawley, who according to the press release “unexpectedly enters and changes everything.” When all the guys she’s interested in appear to be taken, Mikey Tenerelli volunteers to go on a date with Clare, who accepts as she is left without any other choice. Their date involves an  intimate session of tantric yoga, which becomes awkward to say the least. 

The Mystery Woman

According to the press release, “this sexy mystery woman comes to Paradise this season with an attitude and connections that are sure to shock everyone. There’s no telling what kind of drama could ensue as she joins the group on her own quest for true love.” Reality Steve claims that the mystery woman is none other than Ashley’s sister Lauren Iaconetti.  

Bachelor in Paradise season 2 premieres Sunday, August 2 at 8pm on ABC.
