Episode 2 of Bachelor in Paradise 2018 airs tonight and the Xfinity episode synopsis reads, “A noncommittal single returns from a date to an unwanted confrontation; a man learns last season’s Bachelorette is there to visit her friends, causing him a major breakdown.” The episode airs from 8 – 10:01 p.m. ET/PT and 7 – 9:01 p.m. CT and episode 3 airs tomorrow night at the same time.
On the premiere episode, Tia Booth was disappointed to find no Colton Underwood on the beach, so she went on a date with Chris Randone. Then, Underwood showed up with a date card and the two mended their awkward relationship with a rebooted romance. In turn, a love triangle was created. But, in promo videos of upcoming episodes, Underwood is shown crying and it looks like he may not get the happy ending he may have been hoping for this season.
Bekah Martinez, a former co-star of Booth’s from The Bachelor, threw some shade towards Booth on Twitter, according to People. Martinez wrote, “Tia: I’m in love with Colton. Also Tia: I have all of his contact info but decided not to talk to him for 2 months and rely on a TV show to bring us together.” Martinez is referring to when Underwood was a contestant on The Bachelorette 2018, making it to the final four with Becca Kufrin. Then, Booth revealed to Kufrin that she actually still had feelings for Underwood, after the two briefly dated. Booth previously gave Kufrin the go-ahead to date him, so this definitely added a negative twist.
During the BIP5 premiere, Booth and Underwood’s unfinished business seemed to be the focus of the episode. Fans will have to see what other story lines make their way into the show this season.
