Here Are All the ‘Bachelor in Paradise’ Couples Who Are Still Together After Leaving Mexico

Published: in Celebrity News by .

After a summer of drama, these couples stood the test.

If you’re a member of Bachelor Nation, you may want to know which Bachelor in Paradise couples are still together after their summer of drama in Mexico.

Bachelor in Paradise premiered in August 2014 as a spinoff of The Bachelor and The Bachelorette that invites past contestants to Mexico to look for a second chance at love with each other. Here’s how Bachelor in Paradise works: The show starts with 20 or so alums from The Bachelor and The Bachelorette who meet with the hopes of forming a connection with each other.

At the end of each week, either the men or the women give out roses. Contestants who don’t receive a rose are sent home. The next week, more Bachelor and Bachelorette alums are invited to the season, and the gender who didn’t give out roses the previous week now have a chance to hand out roses to the contestants they’ve formed the strongest relationship with.

By the end of the season, the contestants are offered a chance to have an overnight date with no cameras or microphones (much like Fantasy Suites on The Bachelor and The Bachelorette.) After the overnight dates is the finale, where contestants either choose to break up or get engaged. Like The Bachelor and The Bachelorette, Bachelor in Paradise also has an “After the Final Rose” special, where contestants reunite to hash out drama and update viewers on their relationship.

So that’s how Bachelor in Paradise works. But which Bachelor in Paradise couples are still together? And which couples are married and have kids? Read on ahead for where some of Bachelor Nation’s favorite Bachelor in Paradise couples are now and what happened after they left Mexico.

Original seasons: The Bachelorette season 14 (Becca Kufrin) & The Bachelor season 25 (Matt James)

Relationship status: Engaged

Joe and Serena P. got engaged on the Bachelor in Paradise season 7 finale. But their engagement wasn’t without drama. Joe’s ex-girlfriend, Kendall Long, whom he met on Bachelor in Paradise season 5 and dated for two years, surprised him at the altar before Serena P. arrived. Kendall, who was also on BiP season 7 but left early, told Joe that she needed to talk to him for closure before she left Paradise for good.

“When I first came here, I knew you were going to be here. And part of me thought it would be really easy to come here and have a closure talk, and to work toward finding a new relationship and hopefully love, but that’s not what happened,” Kendall told Joe. “I came down on this beach and was completely, like, surprised by how it made me feel and how overwhelming it was. And I think ultimately, what ended up happening is, I ended up coming here to fully let you go. … I’m really excited for you and Serena, and I felt like I couldn’t leave the speech without fully, like, expressing that to you.”

After Kendall left, Serena P. arrived, and Joe proposed to her. Serena P. accepted Joe’s proposal, and the two are still together and engaged. “I’m really into you — your smile, your charm, your looks, this whole thing. A Toronto accent. It’s just really everything,” Joe told Serena P. during his proposal. “It happened fast, faster than I thought. But at this point, I don’t see myself not wanting to wake up with you by my side. When I think about forever, you know, that’s scary. And I think about it with you, and I don’t know, it feels right. … Serena Pitt, I love you very much. Will you marry me?”

“Mari, you know as soon as you came down the stairs and through the gates of Paradise, I honestly was blown away about how beautiful you were. You know, I don’t if it was love at first sight, but it was definitely something — something I’ve never felt before,” Kenny told Mari during his proposal. “At the end of the day, we did go through a lot of real-life relationship stuff, and we were tested like no other couple in Paradise, I think. … I’m shaking. Mari, I am f—king so in love with you. And I literally, like, I can’t see my life without you. You’re such an amazing woman that you’ve changed my whole outlook on life. … Mari Pepin, will you marry me?”

Maurissa accepted Riley’s proposal, and the two are engaged and still together.

“My life has been full of letdowns and broken promises until I met you. You showed me what a real man is. You showed me literally everything I’ve dreamed of my whole life. You showed me that fairytales do exist, even though our fairy tale includes whipped cream and toes,” Maurissa told Riley before his proposal. “I really never believed in love at first sight, and you showed me that it truly is possible. I knew I loved you the first night that I met you. You were adventurous, passionate. I knew that I was going to do whatever I needed to to make you mine, and today I know that I wanna make you mine forever.”

Noah Erb & Abigail Heringer (Season 7)

Relationship status: Dating

Abigail and Noah met on Bachelor in Paradise season 7. They were coupled up from the start and made it to the finale. However, they broke up before the Final Rose Ceremony after Noah told Abigail that he was falling in love with her, but she didn’t say it back. Noah broke up with Abigail at the BiP Prom later that day, where he told her she isn’t his “person.” “I’ve been trying to force something that I want, when deep down I know that I’ve not found my person,” he said. “I have these feelings for this girl and she’s perfect in all these ways, but I don’t know if she’s perfect for me. It’s a feeling I had early on that I tried to ignore, because there’s potential there, but it never went away like I kind of just assumed it would. At the end of the day, I think what’s holding me back is I don’t know if I’ll be able to get to where I want to be.”

Abigail, who told Noah that she was also falling in love with him at the prom and apologized for not telling him sooner, responded by telling Noah that she was “blindsided” by their breakup. “I don’t think I’ve been this blindsided before. You go from telling someone you’re falling in love with them the night before to this conversation. You were the one that constantly said, ‘I’m not going to say anything that I don’t mean. I don’t want to make false promises.’ But you ultimately ended up doing that,” she said. She continued, “You’ve been pushing me to try to get to your level, but you’ve obviously had this gut feeling for longer than 24 hours…You still chose to say that to me. Of course I’m going to be hurt and feel like I was lied to.”
