While Bachelor in Paradise Season 7 will be three hours long tonight, the ABC reality series will still be packed with plenty of storylines to watch. We’re getting down to the wire, and the BIP cast members need to decide whether they’re ready to get engaged. But before things get serious, there’s still a bit of drama leftover from last week.

According to ABC, Bachelor in Paradise Season 7 Episode 10 will start with Aaron Clancy and Ivan Hall’s fight ahead of the rose ceremony. The network also claims that a “shocking discovery” will have contestants “switching sides.” So things don’t look great for Ivan, who is seen speaking to Wells Adams about breaking the rules in the new episode’s promo trailer.

Meanwhile, Wells becomes the “final guest host” of Bachelor in Paradise Season 7. But that doesn’t mean the BIP stars are whipping out engagement rings just yet. ABC’s synopsis for episode 10 confirms new cast members will arrive. Then one couple will learn to get vulnerable, and the remaining contestants will get a chance to go to a “totally rad ‘80s-themed prom.” But there’s bound to be some heartbreak ahead.

“Just like in high school, there will be plenty of laughter and tears, a shocking breakup and enough drama to fill three hours,” the synopsis says.
