Predictably, this season of Bachelor in Paradise has been full of cute couples. Unpredictably, one of those couples has been none other than Tayshia Adams and John Paul Jones. While I would have never in a million years put these two together in my head, they’ve had some of the sweetest moments on the show. Sadly, they ended things in the Sept. 10 episode, when Tayshia admitted she just couldn’t match JPJ’s strong feelings. But are Tayshia Adams and John Paul Jones dating after Paradise? There might still be a future for these two.
It looked for awhile like Tayshia and JPJ would be endgame in Paradise. JPJ has maintained his undying affection for Tayshia since practically day one, but she has always been a bit more hesitant to commit to him. In the Sept. 9 episode, he went the distance to prove his devotion to her by asking her out to a makeshift “prom,” since she never went to one in high school. Tayshia clearly loved the gesture, and they had a super silly and romantic night together. After another lighthearted date (where JPJ wore nothing but a denim speedo), JPJ professed that Tayshia was “everything I could ever ask for.”
But despite their obvious connection, Tayshia felt like she ultimately couldn’t reciprocate JPJ’s love for her, and they both left Paradise separately in tears. It appeared to be the end of their romance, but some fans aren’t so sure that this book is closed. According to a few subtle internet clues, Tayshia and JPJ just might reconcile before this whole thing is over. Here’s a deep dive into the evidence.
