One couple leaves Paradise together, one breaks up, and three others have major breakthroughs on the Sept. 9 episode of Bachelor in Paradise.
The Sept. 9 episode of Bachelor in Paradise begins with Caelynn Miller-Keyes deciding what to do after Dean Unglert unexpectedly came back to Paradise to win her back. Dean asks Caelynn to leave Paradise with him on the spot, but she wants to talk to Connor Saeli, who shed been dating since Dean dumped her, first. Connor tries to talk some sense into Caelynn and urge her to realize that Dean hasnt changed and that he cant be trusted, but Caelynn already seems to have her mind made up. Dean gives her a charming speech, and she decides to leave with him. Obviously, Connor is extremely upset, and doesnt even know if he wants to stay himself.
There are plenty of other couples on the beach, though. Katie Morton is worried that shes not 100% ready to get engaged to Chris Bukowski, which makes Chriss date card perfect timing. Obviously, he asks her out, and she goes into the date hoping to get to know him better and get more clarity about his feelings for her. Chris assures Katie that hes 100% committed to her and explains that hes always had trouble opening up about his feelings because hes been “burned” in the past. He admits hes not able to tell Katie he loves her yet, but promises her that hes beginning to have those feelings and will fight as hard as he can to get there. Its everything she needs to feel more confident in the relationship.
The next day, Revian Chang, who was eliminated on night one of Colton Underwoods season of The Bachelor, arrives with a date card. Its a tough time to come in, as most of the guys are already taken. However, Connor is newly single and needs some fun after what went down with Caelynn, so hes the perfect person for Revian to ask out. They hit it off on the date and conclude the day with a kiss.
For Demi Burnett and Kristian Haggerty, things are going well, but there is one issue in their relationship that they have to work though: Kristian is an affectionate person, while Demi is more hesitant about showing affection. Demi is admittedly concerned about how playful and touchy Kristian is with other women, and its starting to get to her. Shes worried that shes not able to give Kristian enough in their relationship because shes still not completely comfortable with being public about her sexuality and showing PDA in general. Demi gets a date card, so its the perfect time for these two to hash things out.
On the date, Demi brings up her concerns about how hard it is for her to see Kristian be touchy with other people. Kristian explains that her intentions are never to be flirty with other people — shes just an affectionate person and shows that even to her friends. Kristian assures Demi that she knows what shes going through, as she dealt with the difficulties of coming out and being worried about sharing her sexuality with the world just a few years ago. Demi breaks down in tears over her fears that shes not going to be enough for Kristian because of how hesitant she is, but Kristian assures her that Demi has everything that she needs. By the end of the date, Demi is still emotional, but definitely seems to be coming around.
