Bachelor in Paradise Season 8 aired a brand new episode on Monday, October 10, 2022, at 8 pm ET on ABC. The episode featured hopeful singles exploring new connections, with some deepening their existing relationships. However, with new arrivals on a regular basis, twists and turns are not unexpected in the reality dating series.

On tonight's episode, show-alums Ashley and Jared decided to spend some time on the beach, a place where they first fell in love, and after a dramatic season, are now married and have a kid.

Despite their happy story, fans felt that it wasn't fair to the other contestants who are on the season. They also didn't want to see the couple on screen as they were former contestants. One tweeted:

who do i need to contact from the bachelor producers to tell them we do not care about ashley and jared and we do not want to see this #BachelorInParadise https://t.co/2GK1RGK7tS

Season 8 of Bachelor in Paradise has been extremely popular since its premiere episode, which aired on September 27, 2022, and featured contestants who had formerly appeared on various seasons of The Bachelor and The Bachelorette.

As they give love another shot, viewers will have to wait and see if their relationship works out in the series.


Fans react to Bachelor in Paradise couple Ashley and Jared spending time on the beach

The previous week saw BiP success story couple Ashley and Jared visiting the beach and guiding fellow contestants on their journey to finding love. The couple spent some time together on the beach and reginited their romance.

Ashley and Jared met on season 2 of Bachelor in Paradise and instantly hit it off. However, it was the latter's connection with Clare Crawley that left Ashley emotional throughout the season. In many flashback clips on the show, she was seen crying about losing out on not only her "perfect person," but also her best friend.

The couple had a pretty on-again-off-again relationship, following which they got engaged on the beach while on their visit on Season 5 of Bachelor in Paradise. They got married in 2019 and welcomed a son named Dawson in February 2022.

In the latest episode, Ashley and Jared got a date card for themselves and went on a one-on-one date, spending some quality time together.

Fans, however, were disappointed to see the couple on-screen for so long, and felt that the production could have shown other relationships and connections instead. They took to social media to express their opinions.

Check out what they had to say.

Are love triangles forming on Bachelor in Paradise?

Complications have begun arising on the beach.

With James and Aaron's arrival, things have taken a turn for the worse. Although Justin and Genevieve hit it off and were having a great time together, the latter sparked a connection with Aaron, leading her to question her relationship with Justin.

Later on, Genevieve confessed to Justin about not receiving enough attention and decided to focus her energy on her relationship with Aaron.

Similarly, Shanae and James also had a great time on Bachelor in Paradise and the former is now questioning the lack of effort from her previous connection, Logan. Will things work out between them? Only time will tell.


This season of Bachelor in Paradise is getting dramatic with each passing episode. With more twists coming up in the upcoming weeks, viewers will witness more drama and fights as the season progresses.
