Tara’s falling for Sam. Jarrod’s found himself at the centre of a tug-of-love between two smoking hot babes. Michael’s throwing a hissy fit - and Jake’s moved on from Flo already. Did anyone else think we might have accidentally flipped into the Stranger Things’ Upside Down after last night's episode of Bachelor in Paradise? Things were down-right WEIRD!
Let’s start with Tara. Um - does anyone else find it strange that she and Sam appear to be falling for one another? I know, right - it’s Sam!
The cruisey comb-over from Sydney was only supposed to be on the island so we could all laugh at his hair, and so he could provide a comic sidekick for Keira. But now Tara and him are, I don't know, vibing off each other - and, honestly, I don’t know what to think about it.
I think I’m having all the feels - am I?
Not only that, but Michael appears to be inordinately riled up about it. OK, I get that him and Tara had a connection in those first few days- and Tazzla did present him the rose at the first Ceremony. But it’s not like they’d exchanged signet rings or anything. So, why the sniffles once you found out she’d had fun on a banana lounge while you were out with Keira, Michael?
And also, while we’re at it - if you liked her so much, why didn’t you ask her if it was OK that you went off on your date before with Keira BEFORE you skipped off to pop on that palm-frond sombrero? You have precisely ZERO excuses for your sulk.
Also, while we’re at it - is anyone else totally perplexed as to how Jarrod - JARROD, people! - became the centre of Keira AND hot newcomer Ali’s affections?
OK, granted, Ali admitted she only ever saw the final few moments of his season with Sophie Monk (thus missing Pot Plant Gate) - we’ll forgive her.
But Keira! Hello! Talk about LEAST likely match with Jarrod? Where did that come from?
Yep - things in Paradise are certainly getting weird. The icing on the cake last night was Jake moving in for the kill with Megan Marx (last seen in a relationship with for Bachelor love rival, Tiffany Scanlon - they met on the show). Turns out "Marxy" and Jake had been texting and calling before coming on the show too (hmm - maybe Tara’s hairdresser’s cousin’s brother’s wife was RIGHT about him and his rep as a lady’s man). And now he’s all kissy-kissy with her.
Um, excuse me, weren’t you supposed to be wooing Florence? If she goes home at the next ceremony, I don’t know WHAT I’ll do.
So yeah - I’m finding this all very bizarre. Surely they’ve not ALL got sunstroke and lost their minds?
I don’t know how I feel about all these shenanigans - but one thing's for sure...it's great TV!
