At the end of episode 3, Dylan tried to confront Hannah and Blake about their relationship while their castmates took turns accusing Hannah of creating the love triangle in the first place. Episode 4 picked up where that drama left off, with Dylan, Hannah, and Blake navigating the previous night’s awkwardness and Cam continuing to sulk over Caelynn’s date with Mike.
Demi pulled Katie aside to open up about wanting to pursue things with Derek, but feeling conflicted because of the relationship she had before the show. Demi talked about the struggles she’s faced coming out about her sexuality, too, and expressed that she wants to be 100% herself.
Hannah Confessed That She & Blake Saw Each Other Before BIP Filming Began
Demi, Tayshia, and Caelynn gossiped by the pool about wanting answers from Hannah about what’s going on between her, Dylan, and Blake. Meanwhile, Dylan explained the drama to Mike until Hannah approached him to talk.
She explained that she was trying to be openminded about potential relationships, and Dylan asserted that he didn’t understand why she would be interested in someone who mistreated several of the women in Paradise. He asked what he was missing, and she finally admitted that Blake texted her before filming started and even flew to Birmingham, Alabama to see her in-person.
Once Tayshia found out that Blake and Hannah saw each other before filming, she was upset and felt like she was dragged into the middle of something that negatively impacted her experience in Paradise. She confronted Hannah and Hannah said she didn’t tell anyone that Blake went to Birmingham out of respect for him.
Dean arrived in Paradise, and quickly began pursuing Caelynn. She told him about what happened with Blake, before saying she was surprised to see Dean come back to Paradise. He opened up about the mistakes he made in Paradise the first time and said he wants to do it better this time. The two went swimming together, and made out in the pool (which Caelynn told the camera was the most romantic moment she’s had in Paradise).
Derek expressed that though he’s interested in Demi, he is getting mixed signals from her. Demi told Tayshia that she’s conflicted because of the woman she was dating before the show, and Tayshia encouraged her to let Derek know what was up so she can be who she really wants to be.
Nicole Piqued the Interest of 3 Different Men, & The Struggle for Her Attention Turned Violent
Right on cue, as Clay told the camera he hopes no one else shows up to take Nicole from him, Christian arrived at the beach. After introducing himself to his castmates, he gave his date card to Nicole. The two went jetskiing before getting to know each other better on the beach, talking in Spanish for a portion of their date.
The two returned to the beach hand in hand, and Christian told Jordan that he was right about Nicole being an awesome girl. Clay pulled Nicole aside to talk to her, and she told him that he needed to be more assertive about making time with her.
Christian interrupted their conversation and told Clay that Nicole needed to make a decision. He asked Nicole if she wanted to keep talking to Clay or leave and spend time with him, and Nicole told him she wanted to catch up with Clay.
After the commercial break, Chris Harrison showed up to begin the cocktail party and let everyone know that the next time he sees them, it will be the rose ceremony.
Demi pulled Derek aside to talk to him, and she opened up about the woman she was seeing before filming. He thanked her for feeling close enough to him to open up, and asked how she would be able to consider him and the woman she’s dating at the same time, and she said that her feelings for him and her are very different and that reassured Derek to keep being himself and see where things go.
At the cocktail party, Tayshia and John Paul Jones explored their chemistry, and Christian pulled Nicole aside to talk intimately about their date. Clay approached them to try to pull Nicole away to spend some time with her but Christian told him no. Jordan got upset by Christian’s treatment of Clay and went over to Christian and Nicole’s cabana to start a fight with Christian. The episode ended with a “To Be Continued…” immediately after Jordan grabbed Christian and slammed him to the ground.
