‘Bachelor in Paradise’ Season 7: More the contestants, more the drama
Owing to the global pandemic, ‘Bachelor in Paradise’ was forced to take a year off in 2020, but the series returned in August 2021 with a bang, all guns blazing. This no-holds-barred spinoff came back with more contestants than any other editions of the franchise, guaranteeing more drama than ever before. And they delivered. Even host Wells Adams had his mind blown while filming, “Of all the five seasons I’ve done in Paradise, the craziest stuff happens in this season. I think no one is going to expect what happens”, exclaimed Adams on the “Bachelor Happy Hour” podcast.
Did you know how many Bachelor alums did they have to scramble through to finalise on the cast of ‘Bachelor in Paradise’ Season 7? More than a hundred! No doubt, the ‘Bachelor’ producers’ hard work paid off. Like the previous seasons, ‘Bachelor in Paradise’ Season 7 was filmed at the Playa Escondida resort in Sayulita, Mexico.

‘Bachelor in Paradise’ Season 7: Couples that made it official
Blogger Reality Steve had been waiting patiently (or not-so-patiently) to spill the beans on the ‘Bachelor in Paradise’ Season 7 cast news. So as soon as the filming wrapped, Steve shared the dirt on the couples who went all out and exchanged rings. According to his website, there were three couples that shared overnight dates and made it to the grand finale.
Reality Steve predicts three couples who make it to the ‘Bachelor in Paradise’ 2021 finale.
Here are the couples among the cast of ‘Bachelor in Paradise’ 2021 that got engaged:
Kenny Braasch from Clare and Tayshia’s season and Mari Pepin from Matt James’ season.
Joe Amabile from Becca’s season and Serena Pitt from Matt James’ season.
Riley Christian from Clare and Tayshia’s season and Maurissa Gunn from Peter’s season.
Watch Joe and Serena get engaged on ‘Bachelor in Paradise’ Season 7!
Of course, they are just engagements. Steve wrote on his Twitter, “Grocery Joe and Serena Pitt did, in fact, get engaged at the end. So all 3 final couples this season got engaged, equaling season 3 and season 6 having three engagements”.
Fans are well-acquainted with the fleeting “reality” behind Reality TV relationships. They mostly aren’t built to last. But there are some that survived the BiP drill and are still dating or engaged.
Going by Reality Steve’s sneaky snaps, Grocery Joe and Serena Pitt are presumably still together as they cosied up together on a rooftop in Chicago. Even Kenny and Mari are still engaged. Reality Steve refrained from posting the pictures of the couple chilling in a rooftop pool in Chicago where Kenny lives. Steve explained, “Received another picture of Kenny & Mari. However, the picture taker didn’t feel comfortable with me posting it, so I didn’t”. The same goes for Riley and Maurissa too. Steve says they are probably engaged, but they haven’t been spotted together anywhere yet. So beating all odds, ‘Bachelor in Paradise’ Season 7 winners are three for three!
Watch Mari and Kenny give their love another shot on ‘Bachelor in Paradise’ Season 7.
