Maurissa is a night one elimination from The Bachelor Season 24 with Peter Weber, and she was a day one arrival on Bachelor in Paradise Season 7. Initially, Maurissa hit it off with Connor Brennan from The Bachelorette Season 17 with Katie Thurston. However, Maurissa dumped Connor after a successful one-on-one date with Riley, who is a fan-favorite from The Bachelorette Season 16 with Tayshia Adams and Clare Crawley. 

Now, Riley and Maurissa are happily together on Bachelor in Paradise Season 7. But multiple promos for episode 9 confirmed Demar’s arrival with Ed Waisbrot. Demar is also from The Bachelorette Season 16, and the 27-year-old was eliminated in week 8.

A new teaser for Bachelor in Paradise Season 7 Episode 9 teases what Riley thinks of his relationship with Maurissa, and it looks like things are starting to get serious.

“I’m not looking for a one-night thing. I’m looking for a forever thing,” Riley tells BIP producers.

But the preview suggests that established couples will go through a “test of strength” as Demar and Ed arrive. Then Demar seemingly pulls Maurissa, who reveals that the 27-year-old was the one person on her list she wanted to meet in Paradise. However, it seems Riley isn’t going down without a fight.

Meanwhile, The Bachelorette star Becca Kufrin gives a complete rundown of the Riley-Maurissa-Demar love triangle in a separate Bachelor in Paradise Season 7 Episode 9 preview.

“Maurissa and Riley are now in a relationship,” Becca says. “But Maurissa has expressed that the one person she was hoping to see coming into this was Demar.”

Then Riley says he doesn’t want Maurissa to go on a date with Demar. He also admits that he’s nervous about the situation.
