Looking for love a second time around, the “Bachelor in Paradise” cast arrives in gorgeous Tulum, Mexico ready to mingle. Welcomed by Chris Harrison, they quickly get to know each other at a Bachelor-style arrival party located on the beautiful white sandy beach of their private oasis. Shortly after the party gets going, Chris Harrison interrupts to explain the rules of paradise, including one shocking detail — at the end of each week, anyone who is not in a romantic relationship will be sent home — this week the men will hand out a rose to someone they’d like to spend more time getting to know.
The women who do not receive roses will leave paradise forever. With that, the anxiety amongst the women immediately intensifies as they begin to evaluate the eligible men. Lacy is the first to make a move by taking Robert for a steamy dip in the ocean, only later to be canoodling with Marcus.
Throughout the week, date cards arrive for four lucky women who get a chance to ask out a man they’d like to spend time with, though it’s not without causing drama. Clare is the first to get a date card but when she asks out a certain bachelor, one of the other women in the house stakes her claim and persuades Clare to un-invite him. In order to appease her, Clare decides to ask out Robert. Together they visit the ancient and majestic Tulum Ruins where they explore the historical landmark and frolic in the crystal clear ocean.
Later, Sarah receives the second date card and asks out Marcus who, unbeknownst to her, may be smitten by another woman. Marcus accepts and the couple travels to Coba where they rappel into Tankah -ha Cenote, a beautiful underwater sinkhole where they share a kiss! A third date card goes to an unexpected surprise arrival who invites Marquel to go horseback riding along the romantic beach of Playa del Carmen. Lastly, the fourth date card goes to Lacy, who struggles to decide which of her two suitors to take.
