Warning: Major SPOILERS ahead from Bachelor in Paradise 2019 Season 6.
Bachelor in Paradise tends to include some weddings from former contestants, and we'll see that in 2019 as 2018 couple Krystal Nielson and Chris Randone tie the knot. Paradise also often ends with new engagements from Paradise dwellers. We'll see that this year too.
According to Reality Steve, Bachelor in Paradise Season 6 just ended filming in the last week of June, and it includes an engagement from the franchise's first same-sex couple:
Demi Burnett of Colton Underwood's The Bachelor 2019 got engaged to her girlfriend Kristian Haggerty.
Apparently Demi comes out as bisexual on Bachelor in Paradise. She and Kristian were already dating as of around February 2019. Even though Kristian is not a former Bachelor cast member, she seems to join Demi on Bachelor in Paradise Season 6.
It sounds like Demi met Kristian through Catherine Agro of Bachelor Colton's season. Kristian is (or was?) Catherine's roommate. Here's a photo with Demi that Kristian shared on her Instagram:
According to Reality Steve, it was pre-planned to have Kristian come on Bachelor in Paradise to be with Demi. It's part of Demi using BiP to come out as bisexual.
Since Demi isn't the most popular contestant, and she's viewed as chiefly interested in getting whatever attention she can get, fans seem more interested in other potential engagements than anything Demi is doing -- even with Demi giving Bachelor Nation its first same-sex representation and an engagement. Maybe she'll change some hearts and minds this summer.
We haven't heard anything about other Bachelor In Paradise 2019 engagements yet, but there's hope for Bachelor 2019's Hannah Godwin and Bachelorette 2019's Dylan Barbour as a couple. Apparently Hannah G. and Dylan hit it off in Paradise and fans are hoping for good news from them.
ABC has already revealed the initial cast for Bachelor in Paradise, and Steve has added several more names, since the format of Paradise has new contestants added every episode. The Bachelor in Paradise Season 6 premiere was pushed to Monday, August 5; it was originally scheduled for the end of July, but Bachelorette Hannah's season is determined to s-t-r-e-t-c-h out that Luke P drama for as long as possible. And then after Bachelor in Paradise is finished airing, ABC will start filming The Bachelor 2020. That race may have a new frontrunner, but we'll have to wait and see how it all plays out.
