Reality Steve reports that JPJ ends up connecting with Tayshia Adams for most of the season. They became close following the accusations he leveled at Derek. “A man that takes advantage of women … doesn’t really strike me as a man of integrity,” he told another contestant. “I think Tayisha deserves more than that.” He then confronted Derek about his intentions, and the latter became emotional. Tayshia took JPJ’s side, and Derek quit the show.
Following the drama, Tayshia gives JPJ her rose during the fourth ceremony. In the promo for episode nine, JPJ is seen opening up to Tayshia, and admits that he has very strong feelings for her. “I just wanted to let you know just how strong my feelings are for you,” he says, visibly fighting back tears. “I don’t want to scare you away.”

“John Paul Jones, not only do you have amazing hair and look hot in a speedo, but I love your intelligence,” she said.
