“Bachelor in Paradise” is already on its sixth season. The summertime staple first started airing in 2014 and combines eliminated contestants from “The Bachelor” and “The Bachelorette.” Though it’s even shorter than other shows in its franchises, it has a pretty high success rate, leading to marriage and even babies.
Each season has anywhere from 25 to 33 contestants, resulting in endless relationship possibilities.
Heading into “Bachelor in Paradise” season six, here are the couples that are still together, as well as some updates on the engaged couples that didn’t end up sticking it out for good.
Lacy Faddoul and Marcus Grodd called off their engagement.
The first-ever engaged pair left season one with plans to get married and even had a wedding ceremony during “BiP” season two. But two years later in 2016, Grodd told Life&Style that they’d never actually filed the paperwork and weren’t legally married.
They broke up and Grodd is now married to Ally Lutar who he met through mutual friends, per People. Faddoul updated her fans as to how she’s doing on July 8, 2018, writing on Twitter: “I’m living a good life, working on my best life.”
Jade Roper and Tanner Tolbert are still together and recently welcomed their second child.
After getting engaged on “BiP” season two, Roper and Tolbert tied the knot in 2016 in a televised wedding special. These days, they live in Kansas with their dogs Pippa and Finn, their young daughter, Emerson, and newborn son, Brooks.
Amanda Stanton and Josh Murray couldn’t make it work.
After getting engaged on season three, Bustle reported Murray moved in with Stanton and her daughters briefly. But in January 2017, E! News reported that they’d broken up, with Stanton saying it was “for the best.”
She later went on “BiP” season four and briefly dated Robby Hayes, but that ended on not-so-great terms in September 2017, per Us Weekly.
Carly Waddell and Evan Bass have a child together and another on the way.
Waddell and Bass got engaged on the third season of “BiP” and got married during a special episode on season four. Now, they’re living together in Nashville and welcomed their daughter Isabella in February 2018, according to People magazine.
Wadell announced her second pregnancy in May 2019.
Lace Morris and Grant Kemp broke up.
