Looks like Colton and Tia are formally a go!
After weeks of will-they-or-won’t-they, the 2 lastly determined to give one another their all on Monday’s episode of Bachelor in Paradise — however not with no few breakdowns.
After Tuesday evening’s episode ended with Colton telling Tia that her love curiosity, Chris, was kissing Krystal, she freaked out and confronted him — however then determined she nonetheless had emotions for Colton. The former NFL participant wasn’t so positive, till Jacqueline arrived on the seashore and tried to ask him on a date. That’s when he mentioned no, freaked out, and thought of leaving the present.
That freaked out Tia, who broke down and requested Bibiana (the tribe therapist, we guess) to confront him. Luckily for Tia, it labored. “It’s obviously that this girl really feels for you, and it’s obvious that you might be rejecting your feelings for her,” Bibiana, on the verge of tears, advised Colton, who went off to make issues proper.
“The bottom line is obviously I care for you… If this didn’t work, the thought of hurting you scares the s— out of me,” Colton advised Tia. “I think that you and I owe each other an opportunity and a chance to really do this. We need to give this an honest go.”
“You’re choosing me?” Tia requested.
“I am,” he replied. “And I’m finally not scared. And let’s see where this thing goes.”
Tia and Colton sealed their newly dedicated relationship with a kiss, whereas different relationships in Paradise (Chris and Krystal, Kevin and Astrid, Grocery Store Joe and Kendall) continued to develop. Meanwhile, David continued to taunt Jordan by giving Jenna a large teddy bear.
Chelsea and Jubilee could not cease laughing over the incident, pissing off Jordan, who completely exploded, telling them to “shut the f— up.” Line crossed, however he wisened up and apologized.
Oh, and P.S.: Kenny King turned the brand new Venmo John, who was the brand new Grocery Store — when he kissed Annaliese, Bibiana and Jacqueline on the cocktail ceremony forward of the rose ceremony. Go Kenny!
