Bachelor in Paradise LIVE 2021 – Brendan SHOCKS 'girlfriend' Natasha as he says 'yes' to date with new arrival Pieper

BACHELOR in Paradise is back as Pieper James arrived and immediately asked Brendan Morais on a date, despite his escalating relationship with Natasha.

It came after Brendan was accused of “secretly dating” Pieper before the show.

Brendan had talked out the rumors with Natasha and assured her that he felt a greater connection with her, but that didn't stop him from immediately accepting a date with Pieper.

Last week, Chasen Nick, Karl Smith, Connor Brennan, Tahzjuan Hawkins and Tre Cooper were all eliminated.

The series airs on Mondays and Tuesdays at 8pm EST on ABC.
