‘Bachelor in Paradise’ Recap: Ashley Iaconetti Calls Caila Quinn a ‘Backstabbing Whore’ Over Jared Haibon Drama

Bachelor in Paradise keeps delivering the drama! The Tuesday, August 16, episode did not disappoint, with Ashley Iaconetti making a play for Jared Haibon‘s heart, Nick Viall finally landing a girlfriend, and Evan Bass getting hospitalized for swollen ankles. Not only that, but one BIP contestant threatened to quit the show thanks to a love triangle gone wrong. Keep reading to find out who.

Ashley Is Back, Still Virginal, and Still in Love with Jared

Ashley is thirsty, guys, and not just for Jorge’s mixed drinks. She’s parched for Jared, her former lover who basically spends his time being all “UGH” whenever she enters a room. Turns out Ashley and Jared stayed friends after last summer’s Bachelor in Paradise, but womp: She’s definitely still in love with him. And yeah, it’s unrequited. 

The problem? Jared’s dating Caila Quinn, who told Ash that she wouldn’t go near her man before the season started filming. Naturally, Ashley ended up confronting Jared about Caila’s nefarious trail of lies and deceit, and Ash casually mused, “Caila ruined everything, and she’s a backstabbing whore of a friend.” In conclusion, everything is normal and fine and totally not dramatic! 

Ashley Attempts to Rebound with Daniel, Fails

Devoid of Jared’s tender lips, Ashley was left with no alternative but taking Daniel Maguire on a date. And it was actually sort of sweet — until Dan was all, “Are you interested in having sex in the near future?” He also told cameras that “the fact that she’s a virgin is kinda a big turn-on,” and posed several important questions:

“Does she want Canadian sex?”

“Does she want some Canadian bacon?”

“With maple syrup drizzled on it?”

Gonna go ahead and answer these with a solid NOPE on Ashley’s behalf.

Nick Finally Gets a Girlfriend, Bless

Nick’s basically been spending his time in Paradise getting rejected by women and sitting on a beach, but hark! Who goes there? It’s Jen Saviano, and she totally asked Nick out on a date. Turns out these two had a great connection because they ended up making out in a wave while a fleet of crabs tried to murder them. Romance!

Evan Is Hospitalized for Swollen Ankles

Guys, no one panic, but Evan’s legs are not okay. His ankles are a literal mess, and they just can’t even cope with how swollen they are. In fact, a doctor sent Evan to a hospital to deal with the tragic state of his feet, which was a perfect opportunity for a date with Carly Waddell. Despite the deeply disturbing circumstances, Carly and Evan bonded by looking at the inside of his ears, and it seems like she’s crushing hard. She even said: “He is one of the best people at heart I have ever met.” Cute, but Carly, remember that time you threw up after kissing Evan?

Jared Threatens to Leave Paradise Because LBR, It’s Secretly Hell

Ashley’s heart might be in the right place, but she was majorly bumming out Jared and Caila with her nonstop weeping. In fact, Caila started holding back on Jared because she was so stressed about Ashley, which led Jared to confront his ex.

Jared told Ash that he was frustrated by her obsession, and poor Ashley sobbed, “I’ve never felt for anyone the way I feel for you. I’ve never felt that way, so it’s hard to let it go.” The episode ended with a visibly distraught Jared threatening to ditch Paradise, so it looks like both Caila and Ashley might be fresh outta luck.

Tell Us: Will Jared peace out of paradise? And does Ashley need to let him go already?

Bachelor in Paradise airs on ABC Mondays and Tuesdays at 8 p.m. ET.
