"Bachelor in Paradise" ended with a bang, as expected.
Contestants Jade Roper and Tanner Tolbert got engaged on the finale Monday night. The pair, who dated throughout the entire season, were all smiles as they celebrated on the beach, Jade sporting a new Neil Lane diamond ring on her finger. They stopped by "After Paradise" to chat with hosts Chris Harrison and Jenny Mollen, saying their relationship is better than ever.
"We don't want to have a long engagement, so ..." Jade admitted.
Other couples decided to take a chance at love outside the show, including Samantha Steffen and Nick Peterson and Cassandra Ferguson and Justin Reich. Oddly enough, it was revealed on "After Paradise" that Cassandra actually didn't end up with Justin, but another "BIP" contestant -- Jonathan Holloway. "It's been about a month, and we're taking it as slowly as we can," Holloway told Harrison.
But not everyone found happiness in paradise. Tenley Molzahn and Joshua Albers decided to go their separate ways, as did Carly Waddell and Kirk Dewindt, who had one of the most dramatic breakups in "Bachelor" history on Sunday night's episode. Kirk "blindsided" Carly, telling her he didn't feel as strongly for her as she clearly felt for him, despite the fact that they seemingly had a great connection.
"I had no idea ... he never gave me any warning signal at all," Carly said of the split on "After Paradise." "My reaction [to the breakup], I think, was very valid."
Kirk apologized to Carly on the after show, saying that he tried to give their relationship a fair shot before realizing he was "behind." He also took to Twitter to share his side of the story:
Carly pulled a Taylor Swift and released a song about the on-air breakup:
Ah, the drama never ends. Until next summer ...
