The previous episode of "Bachelor in Paradise" threw a shocker for Joe Bailey when Mikey Tenerelli returned to the show after previously getting eliminated and Samantha Steffen dumped him on his birthday.
As "Bachelor in Paradise" viewers already know, Juelia Kinney eliminated Tenerelli, believing Bailey was genuinely interested in her. But Bailey soon revealed his true colours by saying he was stringing along Kinney only until Steffen arrived on the show.
However, things took a turn for the worse for Bailey as Steffen started acting a bit distant in the previous episode and ended up breaking up with him on his birthday.
According to Bachelor Nation host Chris Harrison, the previous few episodes have resulted in a giant mountain of lies being built and it is now difficult to separate the truth from the lies.
"Was he lying? Was she lying? Did he use [Juelia Kinney]? Did Samantha use Juelia? Did Samantha use Joe to use Juelia? It's hard to keep any of this straight honestly. And even just watching Sam and Joe talk, it's hard to tell if they're being honest with anyone, or even each other, or even themselves," Harrison wrote on his Yahoo! blog.
The show host also revealed that Nick Peterson's arrival has complicated things for Steffen.
"They apparently had been talking before the show as well, and had even met up. He seemed to find this totally innocent, which it may have been. That's the new question, it seems. Did Joe misunderstand Sam's intentions? Was she just trying to put feelers out there? Or was she really trying to build relationships with several people at the same time?" the host said.
As for what's in store for the contestants next week, Harrison revealed that relationships will be put to test.
According to spoiler guru Reality Steve, one relationship that's sure to survive the test is that of Tanner Tolbert and Jade Roper, who will reportedly get engaged at the end of the season.
Recently, Roper even revealed that the duo is still together and going strong.
