As we’re learning this season, the Bachelor in Paradise connections start forming long before the cast flies down to Mexico.
Picking up where we left off, Tuesday’s episode dove right into the messy love triangle (or is it an octagon?) created by Hannah Godwin, Blake Horstmann and Dylan Barbour. While pretty much everyone agreed that Blake was not to be trusted, a lot of the women were also starting to grow suspicious of Hannah, speculating that she “had her hand in a lot of the drama.”
As for Dylan? After witnessing Hannah make out with Blake on the beach, he was more confused than ever, so he grabbed her for a chat to clear the air.
“Last night was just bad,” he told her. “I don’t see why you’re so open to other things right now if we’re doing so well.”
“I’m really trying to just be open-minded,” she insisted. “I just owe it to myself.”
But Dylan couldn’t shake the feeling that he was “missing something,” and eventually Hannah came clean. As it turns out, she and Blake did have a history: A week before Paradise, he texted her and decided to book a flight to visit her in Birmingham, Alabama.
“We met up and we had a conversation and then we kissed,” Hannah admitted. “Then I went home.”

Dylan was hurt that Hannah waited so long to tell him.
“I feel like I should have known that,” he said. “It’s hard to hear that they had something before this.”
The information began spreading through the bungalows, and Tayshia Adams, who had gone on a date with Blake during week one, wasn’t pleased.
“Hannah, right now, is a puppeteer,” she claimed. “Hannah just plays this innocent card as if none it is her fault and she has no idea why anything is happening. She knows what she’s doing.”
Annoyed that she had gotten involved without knowing Blake and Hannah already had something, Tayshia decided to confront her friend.
“I just feel like this whole Blake/Dylan/you drama has really tainted my experience so far,” she told Hannah.
Hannah said Blake coming to visit her was “a private thing that he did,” hence why she didn’t tell anyone at first. “Out of respect for him, I didn’t want to spill everything like that,” she explained.
“Where in the hell did that come from?” she wondered to producers later. “I feel like Mean Girl-ed me.”
Demi’s Big Secret
From the outside, the most established couple seemed to be Derek Peth and Demi Burnett — but Demi was secretly conflicted. While she definitely had feelings for him, there was someone else on her mind: the woman she had been dating back in Los Angeles. Finally, she confided in Katie Morton about her sexuality, admitting she was afraid of people judging her and had only just told her parents that she’s bisexual.
