Why ‘Bachelor In Paradise’ Fans Are Crying Over John Paul Jones

It’s been one heck of a season for Bachelor In Paradise fans. Between love triangles, exes on the beach, and Dean’s shocking return, the drama has never been more absurd. One of the biggest sources of drama this season comes from fan favorite, John Paul Jones. But, despite JPJ’s penchant for puking, stringing Haley Ferguson along, and fighting with Derek Peth, he somehow managed to grab the attention of Tayshia Adams.

Adams and John Paul Jones were perhaps the most shocking couple in Bachelor In Paradise this Summer. The two shared an unusual, yet undeniable chemistry that seemed to be rooted in humor. Though the pair had always been playful and flirty with one another, JPJ revealed his true feelings when he started drama with Peth after Peth gave Adams his rose.

Once Peth made the decision to leave Bachelor In Paradise, John Paul Jones took the opportunity to go all-in on Adams. He expressed that he’d never met a woman as amazing as Adams and went out of his way to make her feel special. Hearing that Adams never got the opportunity to attend her high school Prom, he decided to recreate a prom scene for her to experience.

It seemed like the pair were getting along pretty well, but things took a turn for the worse during Tuesday’s episode of the show. When Chris Harrison announced that it was the last day for Bachelor In Paradise, John Paul Jones decided to go for broke and admit that he was in love with Adams. Though Adams admitted that she cared about JPJ, she confessed that she wasn’t in love with him and wasn’t sure if she could get there. John Paul Jones left the beach heartbroken, while Adams left in tears. Meanwhile, a montage of their relationship played in the background.

A heartfelt Instagram caption

Taking to his Instagram page, John Paul Jones posted a picture of himself with a caption that seemingly spoke to his relationship with Adams. “‘Tis better to have loved and lost than never to have loved at all,” the 24-year-old quoted. Fans immediately began expressing their love and support for JPJ and many of them confessed that his time on Bachelor In Paradise had moved them to tears.

Bachelor In Paradise finale

If there’s one thing we know about Bachelor In Paradise, it’s that a breakup on the beach doesn’t necessarily mean that a couple won’t get back together. Two examples of this from last season of the show are Kendall Long and Joe Amabile, who broke up on BIP and are now living together, and Astrid Loch and Kevin Wendt, who broke up on the show and are now engaged. Both couples revealed they’d gotten back together during the Bachelor In Paradise finale.

The Bachelor spoiler

For all the fans, hoping that Adams and John Paul Jones will work it out, all hope is not lost. But, you’ll have to wait and see how things play out on Tuesday. As for who the next bachelor is, well we’ve got an answer for you on that front. Spoiler alert: It’s this guy.
