Bachelor in Paradise: Grocery Store Joe finds himself in a love triangle

Grocery Store Joe was eliminated on night one on The Bachelorette, but he’ll get plenty of screen time on the upcoming season of Bachelor in Paradise.

The Bachelor in Paradise season premiere is less than a week away and there are two things we know: there will be drama and almost everyone will cry, including Grocery Store Joe.

Fans were outraged when Bachelorette Becca Kufrin sent Joe home on the premiere-night rose ceremony. When they find out how crazy things get for Joe on Paradise, Bachelor Nation will wonder if it was best if Joe just walked away from the franchise and found love on Tinder.

Spoilers for the upcoming season of Bachelor in Paradise won’t make the show any less dramatic. If you choose not to find out what happens to Grocery Store Joe, you may want to stop reading. But, it’s hard to resist a spoiler, isn’t it?

Last month, ABC released the names of the contestants who will appear on the Bachelor in Paradise season premiere (August 7), including Joe. Of note: they left out the names of 18 additional guys and girls who will show up this season — find a full cast list here.

Joe gets cozy with one of Arie’s girls

Before Bachelor in Paradise started filming in June, we heard rumblings that Kendall Long (Arie’s season) was hanging out with Leo (Becca’s season).

The previews for the upcoming season show Kendall in the midst of some sort of relationship issues. Apparently, she makes a “love” connection with Grocery Store and Leo isn’t pleased.

Well, Leo, that’s what happens when you try to connect with someone before you go on a show.

Apparently, Kendall ends the love triangle rather quickly and sticks with Joe (smart girl!). But, we’re not so sure they will be heading to the altar.

Heartbreak ahead

According to Reality Steve, Joe and Kendall are a couple for most of the season, but they split before the finale. That’s where things get confusing because we’ve seen glimpses of Kendall and Jon on their Instagram stories. Are they friends — or more?

After reading what Reality Steve has to say, it looks like Kendall continued to break Joe’s heart after they returned from taping Bachelor in Paradise. Or, so we assume.

“At the cocktail party before the final rose ceremony, Kendall and Joe broke up,” Steve writes. They had been with each other a majority of the show and ended it. However, if you paid close attention to social media this weekend, Kendall was in Chicago visiting Joe. You see those pictures he took with David and John? Yeah, that was Kendall who was taking the pictures. Trust me, she was there. People saw them together certainly acting like a couple. However, Kendall five days earlier was in Atlanta at a watch party that fans attended, and she was pretty much flirting it up with Alex Bordy (Rachel’s season) and Michael Garofola.”

Oh, Joe … we’re here for you!

Watch the Bachelor in Paradise premiere on August 7 at 8 p.m. ET.
