High Ropes And Even Higher Hopes.
Paradise was calm… suspiciously calm after last night’s rose ceremony.
Osher appeared announced a battle for the bachies, splitting the entire camp into two teams.
Alex Bordyukov was gutted that he wasn’t with Brooke Blurton. Again! She was teamed with his biggest competition on the island Alex Nation and Nathan Favro.
In Paradise anything can happen and with a group date up for grabs, sabotage and dirty tactics soon arose.
While no red or yellow cards were served, ref. Osher was there to ensure that the result was fair. Richie Strahan’s team took home the prize, some couch surfing shenanigans across the Pacific Ocean.
Alex and Brooke were ready to get their flirt on, but Nathan carefully positioned himself in between the girls, making himself a fine Brooke Nation sandwich.
Nathan pulled Brooke aside to try to understand where he stood. Nathan knew he was complicating things for her and felt it was time that he’d give this love square one less corner.
Shannon asked Osher if she could bring Davey back. Given Osher isn’t a love genie, he couldn’t grant Shannon her wish but did give her some food for thought.
Zoe O’Brien, the girl with the winning curls from Blake Garvey’s season of The Bachelor arrived excited to find out what Paradise may bring.
While Jules, American Alex and Bill thought she was an absolute babe, they made it clear that they were already taken.
When the couch surfers returned from the high seas, Nathan and Ivan Krslovic were pleasantly surprised with the new and bubbly addition to Paradise.
Shannon laid her cards out on the table with Connor Obrochta, she wanted to explore Paradise. Knowing that he was no longer tied down, he accepted Zoe’s invitation for a date.
Zoe and Connor headed on a high ropes escapade and after some flirting they settled down for a chance to get to know each other. Love was in the air for Zoe, however these feelings became awkward when Connor admitted he had Shannon on his mind.
Back in Paradise, Jules Bourne and Alisha Aitken-Radburn put on their best party shirts to explore if they could be made of boyfriend/girlfriend material.
Finally, Rachael saw an opportunity to try to woo ‘her Bachelor’ by stealing Richie away and treating him to a candlelit beach dinner. She preceded to tell him how serious she was about him.
Wondering whether Rachael had lost her coconuts, Richie thought it was as clear as white rum that he had no intention of rekindling a romance.
