Tammy and Aaron got together in the Bachelor in Paradise Season 7 premiere, and the reality stars had a strong start. That said, both parties were still open to other relationships. 

Ahead of the first rose ceremony, Aaron made out with Serena Chew. Meanwhile, Tammy connected with Thomas before the second rose ceremony. The couple also kissed on the beach. However, Aaron wasn’t OK with Tammy and Thomas’ blossoming relationship.

Thomas was confronted by Aaron after he kissed Tammy. Then Aaron dumped his emotions on Tammy, who shared that she was trying to figure out how she felt about both men.

“You’ve talked to him for one day, and you completely sacrificed everything we had built,” Aaron told Tammy. “You will regret it like no other, I promise you. He’s not a good person. He’s not.”

In the end, Tammy gave her rose to Thomas. But Aaron wasn’t sent home. The reality star connected with The Bachelorette’s Becca Kufrin, and she gave Aaron her rose.

When Tammy chose Thomas over Aaron in Bachelor in Paradise Season 7 Episode 5, the reality star shared the moment that confirmed her decision.

“Aaron’s rose wasn’t off the table for me at that point in time. But after getting scolded at, my mind was made up #BachelorInParadise,” Tammy wrote on Twitter.

Then when speaking with Us Weekly, Tammy explained her connection with Thomas and shared what Bachelor Nation fans didn’t get to see from the episode. She said:

“I sat with him for, like, two hours and we just talked about, you know, what this world could do to us and our mental health and as long as we know that we’re not really ‘villains’ in the real world and we’re just very misunderstood. We bonded over [the fact that] we’re both real estate agents and the type of personality we are, so I really bonded with him over a friendship in the morning.”

Tammy also revealed that a romance with Thomas didn’t even cross her mind until the night of the rose ceremony, and she tried to help him spark something with other contestants.
