Pieper showed up on the beach midway through Bachelor in Paradise Season 7 Episode 6, and the new cast member immediately asked Brendan out on a date. Many contestants through Brendan and Pieper knew each other and were dating ahead of filming. Then their suspicions grew throughout the episode.

Meanwhile, Brendan came clean about his relationship with Natasha early on in Paradise. At first, Pieper accused Brendan of downplaying their romance before the show. But Brendan pointed out that “certain things” had to be done so they could meet on the show. Then Pieper thanked Brendan for “playing the game.”

The reality stars were joined at the hip the moment they reunited with the rest of the Bachelor in Paradise cast. Natasha also confronted the situation, and she learned that Brendan lied to her about Peiper. As it turned out, Pieper and Brendan met over two months ago, and they went on about 10 dates right before filming started. 

Later, Brendan was caught talking behind Natasha’s back, claiming that the reality star had “zero prospects” without him. Then when Natasha called Brendan out on his actions, he suggested that Natasha had “selective hearing” and misunderstood the nature of their relationship.

“At this point, I incriminated myself enough where it’s like, I’m screwed,” Brendan said as he attempted to muffle his microphone.

Now, it seems multiple Bachelor in Paradise contestants want to oust Pieper and Brendan from the show. In the preview for episode 7 on Sept. 7, everyone on the beach appears upset with the two reality stars. Then Riley Christian seemingly tells Brendan and Pieper they have to “go,” and it seems possible the couple will leave soon.

Bachelor in Paradise fans will have to watch whether the cast gets Pieper and Brendan to leave the show. But luckily, Bachelor Nation blogger Reality Steve shared spoilers about Brendan and Pieper’s future in June, and they will leave before Fantasy Suite week. 

“Brendan Morais and Pieper James left the show before overnights as a couple,” Reality Steve wrote. “We saw the stories pre-show that they were dating before BIP even started, this became a storyline on the show, I believe they started getting called out for it by others, so they just bounced.”

Also, Pieper and Brendan are allegedly still together and dating now after filming Bachelor in Paradise Season 7. In August, Reality Steve shared an update on the couple, seemingly confirming their relationship status.

“They’ve been seen quite a few times since they left BIP together before the final day,” Reality Steve tweeted on Aug. 22. “But here was Brendan and Pieper yesterday outside of the SLS hotel in Miami.”
