Many Bachelor in Paradise fans have been patiently waiting for the arrival of Dr. Joe Park. Meanwhile, others might need a refresher on the Bachelorette favorite. So who is Joe on Bachelor in Paradise 2021? Here’s everything you need to know about the BIP star, including his age, job, Instagram, and what spoilers suggest about his time on the show.
[Spoiler alert: This article contains potential spoilers about Dr. Joe Park in Bachelor in Paradise 2021.]
Who is Joe Park on ‘Bachelor in Paradise’ 2021?
Dr. Joe first appeared on The Bachelorette Season 16 with Clare Crawley and Tayshia Adams. The 37-year-old anesthesiologist from New York City faded into the background, and his relationship with both leads weren’t really highlighted. But even so, Joe quickly caught Bachelor Nation’s attention and became a fan-favorite.
Given his lack of screen time on The Bachelorette, some viewers weren’t surprised when Joe didn’t win on his season. Joe was eliminated in episode 7. But many Bachelor Nation viewers hoped he would return for BIP.
What is Joe Park’s Instagram?
Bachelor in Paradise fans can find Joe on Instagram under the handle @josephparkmd. For the most part, it seems reality star uses his social media presence for good, and he frequently posts educational videos on his platform.
Joe also posts photos from his daily life, including his friendship with The Bachelorette Season 16 cast. Within the past year, the anesthesiologist has highlighted himself hanging out with Bennett Jordan and Brendan Morais.
Will Joe Park and Natasha Parker end up together in ‘Bachelor in Paradise’ Season 7?
Before Joe officially joined the Bachelor in Paradise Season 7 cast, many viewers already knew he was going to show up on the beach. Back in January 2021, ABC executive Rob Mills revealed that Joe was going to be on BIP.
“We’ve got ourselves a vaccinated Paradisian!!” Mills wrote on Twitter on Jan. 8.
Meanwhile, an early Bachelor in Paradise Season 7 promo confirmed Joe’s arrival, and it looked like he received a date card. Later, Joe was also seen on his date, and the person looked similar to Natasha Parker. Given everything that happened between Natasha and Brendan, we aren’t sure whether Joe will continue dating someone who is on the outs with his friend. But however this plays out, it doesn’t look like Joe and Natasha will end up together on Bachelor in Paradise.
On June 30, Bachelor Nation blogger Reality Steve shared season spoilers for Bachelor in Paradise 2021, and he mentioned that Dr. Joe doesn’t get a rose from anyone. But Natasha allegedly gets together with Ed Waisbrot later on. So now, it seems likely Joe doesn’t make a splash on the summer series.
Whatever happens to Joe on Bachelor in Paradise Season 7, many viewers are just hoping to see more from the anesthesiologist. So stay tuned. There’s plenty of heartbreak and romance ahead.
Bachelor in Paradise Season 7 airs Tuesday nights on ABC.
