What happened to Mari Pepin-Solis and Kenny Braasch in ‘Bachelor in Paradise’ 2021?
Mari and Kenny got together in the Bachelor in Paradise Season 7 premiere. But the relationship started to shift in the first few episodes. Mari wanted the option of saying yes to a date while prioritizing her relationship with Kenny. But Kenny thought that Mari wanted to pursue other options. So he ended the relationship and started seeing Demi Burnett.
Later, Mari told Kenny she wanted to continue dating. So the reality stars gave their romance another shot. Then Kenny and Mari finally received a one-on-one date in episode 9. Both parties revealed they were falling in love with each other. They also suggested that they would be open to an engagement at the end of Paradise.
New ‘Bachelor in Paradise’ promos suggest Kenny Braasch and Mari Pepin-Solis could break up soon
While many Bachelor in Paradise fans are hoping Mari and Kenny end up together and engaged in the finale, a few promos for episode 10 hint that there’s one more challenge ahead. In the preview for the Sept. 28 episode, Kenny suggests the spark isn’t there anymore.
“Early on, it was like passionate,” he says. “But it’s not there anymore.”
Then in another new BIP preview, Mari admits something is wrong when speaking with Serena Pitt and Abigail Heringer. Mari says things have been “kinda weird” with Kenny, revealing her partner wasn’t being his usual affectionate self. Mari also confronts Kenny about the situation, and he says they’re on different pages. Kenny says:
“I got a weird feeling the last two nights. I feel like I’m still in a different place than you are. If we’re going to get engaged, we both have to be pretty sure where we’re at. And I just still feel like you’re not sure. I just don’t want to get in over our heads thinking we’re in a place that we’re not. Do we need to pump the brakes a minute?”
At the end of the Bachelor in Paradise promo, Mari says she feels “blindsided” by her partner’s comments. However, it seems she doesn’t want to “pull back” like she did in the past.
