We have officially left Paradise. Bachelor in Paradise couple Samantha Steffen and Nick Peterson have ended their relationship, a source confirms exclusively to Us Weekly. The pair began dating during the second season of the hit show and decided to continue their relationship during the season finale, which filmed in June.
“The main reason for the breakup is the distance,” the source tells Us. “They just weren’t able to make it work.” (Steffen, 28, is based in Los Angeles, while Peterson, 31, lives in Tampa, Fla.)
Even though Steffen initiated the breakup, the split was amicable. “There are no hard feelings. She thinks he’s a great guy,” the source explained. “She isn’t interested in seeing anyone else right now.”
Instead of wallowing in her breakup misery, Steffen plans to immerse herself in volunteer work with The Hans Foundation, an organization for which her mother serves as the managing director.
This leaves Tanner Tolbert and Jade Roper as the final remaining couple from Season 2 of Bachelor in Paradise, but it looks like they are far from splitting. According to a post on her Instagram account, the duo recently attended a wedding expo together.
