What happened to Abigail Heringer and Noah Erb in ‘Bachelor in Paradise’ 2021?
Abigail and Noah got together in the Bachelor in Paradise Season 7 premiere. The couple received the first one-on-one date, and they really hit it off. But the relationship seemed much slower than others on the beach.
Finally, Noah told Abigail that he was falling in love with her in episode 10 of BIP. But Abigail froze and didn’t say it back, which resulted in a difficult discussion during Paradise Prom. In the end, Noah broke up with Abigail because he realized she wasn’t his person.
“I’ve started to form genuine feelings for you,” Noah told Abigail. “I know the strong feelings I have for you, but I’ve been trying to force something that I want when deep down I know, like, I don’t know if you’re my person.”

Now, many Bachelor in Paradise fans are patiently waiting for an official update from Noah and Abigail. But other viewers have been wondering why the reality stars decided to break up if they truly got back together post-Paradise. In the Sept. 29 blog post, Reality Steve shared a possible reason.
“We know Noah and Abigail have been together post show, and watching that ‘break up’ last night clearly seemed producer driven to me,” the blogger wrote. “We see this every season essentially where a couple that seems to be fine, one of them just breaks it off and they get back together post show. … It kinda seems like Noah was maybe urged or pushed in that direction to end things with Abigail for dramatic purposes.”
Reality Steve continued, “It’s clear production has their storylines of what they want on the show, and for whatever reason, every season they’ll pick one or two couples and get in one of their ears to get them to break up on the show.”
Whatever happened between Abigail and Noah ahead of the Bachelor in Paradise Season 7 finale, it seems they might’ve still found their happy ending. So cheers to that.
Update: Following the Bachelor in Paradise finale, Noah and Abigail confirmed they are still together on Instagram. Abigail posted a photo of herself kissing her boyfriend.
