Despite forming what many fans felt was an unlikely and imperfect couple, Michelle Money and Cody Sattler are still together after Bachelor in Paradise.

Not only that, they're even more smitten now than when the Bachelor in Paradise finale filmed back in June. The duo say they've fallen in love!

Michelle Money and Cody Sattler

"It's been so easy, and it's only gotten better since the show ended," Sattler tells Us in an interview. "It's going in the right direction, I can tell you that!"

Money, a fan favorite from Brad Womack's second season of The Bachelor, and Season 2 of Bachelor Pad, appeared to have struck out in Paradise too.

Then along came Cody, fresh off his failed attempt to woo Andi Dorfman on The Bachelorette. He wanted Michelle from day one. She came around.

"For me, it was either three strikes and you're out, or third time's a charm," she says, noting that. "I've been through a lot with the Bachelor franchise."

"I've had some amazing experiences and met incredible people, but I've never met anyone as amazing as Cody. I never thought someone like him existed."

As you know if you watch Bachelor in Paradise, former Bachelorette and Bachelor stars Marcus Grodd and Lacy Faddoul are on their way to the altar.

Shocked? Don't be. These two were smitten from the start.

Lacy Faddoul, Marcus Grodd

Granted, it was fast, but those who saw Marcus court Andi Dorfman on The Bachelorette know he was open to the idea of falling in love and marrying quickly.

Lacy never got her foot in the door with Juan Pablo Galavis, as she was cut the first night. Boy did she dodge a bullet with that blessing in disguise.

In any case, it's been a little over three months for Marcus Grodd and Lacy Faddoul, but given the intensity of the setting and their connection?

It feels like they've known each other a lot longer, and they couldn't be happier today, because they can go public as an engaged couple! Finally!

"It definitely still feels surreal," Lacy said. "Hiding it and having [to stay in] safe houses and covering our trails was definitely hard. It's still a whirlwind for us!"

Bachelor in Paradise lovebirds AshLee Frazier and Graham Bunn are destined to fail as a couple, according to someone who should know: Michelle Money.

  • Michelle Money, Graham Bunn
  • AshLee F

If you watch Bachelor in Paradise (or Bachelor Pad, or even The Bachelor when she was on that), you know Michelle isn't perfect, but she is very real.

Down to earth, kind and incredibly loyal for a hot girl who would appear on any or all of the above shows, she's a breath of fresh air every season.

That's why her opinion of the romance enjoyed by Paradise co-stars AshLee Frazier and Graham Bunn - who had a thing with Money as well - carries weight.

AshLee and Graham's "connection" has somewhat befuddled many viewers since the moment the show premiered, and rightfully so if you ask us.

Already revealed as a clinger from Sean Lowe's season, Frazier basically admitted she went on the show to stalk Graham after she fell in love with his Instagram account.

In a recent interview, Michelle Money offered a candid assessment of the duo:

Bachelor in Paradise is returning to ABC, and also to paradise, come summer 2015.

ABC has ordered a second season of the spinoff series that finds The Bachelor and The Bachelorette alumni living together in a tropical setting.

As they look for love, drama and utter nonsense ensues. But darned if it's not fun!

Bachelor in Paradise Crew

Paradise is something of a replacement for Bachelor Pad, the summer competition spinoff that aired for three seasons (2010-12) before getting axed.

The Pad was all about Big Brother-style games and trying to win money, whereas Paradise is all about love (though confusing rules apply to both throughout).

The news comes on the heels of confirmation that the network named Chris Soules The Bachelor for its 19th (yes, 19th) season, kicking off in January.

And just as ABC renewed Bachelor in Paradise, its inaugural finale airs tonight.

Is Jesse Kovacs the biggest loser in the history of The Bachelor franchise?

Juan Pablo Galavis won't be watching the ABC show, but he should be grateful it's on, because Kovacs is certainly making a strong argument for that title.

Compared to this douche, JPG is looking like a standup individual.

Jesse Kovacs Pic

If you watch Bachelor in Paradise online, you know it's hard to take seriously. Still, some participants seem at least moderately interested in finding love.

Or at least they're open to the idea of it. Jesse Kovacs, on the other hand?

He's there for free booze and to get his joint worked around the clock.

Having likely succeeded in getting it in with Christy, Michelle, and Lacy (remember last week's Jesse Kovacs threesome?), his house of cards collapsed Monday.

A few more familiar faces showed up in Tulum on Bachelor in Paradise Season 1 Episode 6, and the final rose ceremony was held of next week's finale.

What will that entail? We have no idea. But check out our recap below, and follow the link to watch Bachelor in Paradise online and see how we got here ...

Brooks Forester and Tasos Hernandez, hunks from Desiree Hartsock's season and Andi Dorfman's season, respectively, are the latest to show up in Paradise.

How will these two arrivals impact the existing cast?

In the case of Marcus Grodd and Lacy Faddoul, not at all. They got a date card, went on an adventure and are totally getting married to each other.

No, seriously. They got engaged after the show.

Michelle Money, meanwhile, was unsettled by Cody Sattler's declaration of love. Luckily he's so darn likable that she could open up to him and feel better.

On Bachelor in Paradise Season 1 Episode 5, we picked up right where things left off with AshLee, Clare and Graham and the aftermath of Monday's train wreck.

The second half of this special Bachelor in Paradise two-night EVENT promised to ramp up the drama tenfold following AshLee's slut shaming of Clare.

It turned out that was only the beginning. There was also a threesome involved later in the show (seriously) and someone else dropped the L-bomb.

Yeah, it was a lot to take in Tuesday night. Follow the link to watch Bachelor in Paradise online, then come along as we recap all the insanity in Mexico ...

After Graham storming off to conclude the previous installment, Michelle went to check on him ... and we learned he was actually having an anxiety attack.

However, he pulled it together and accepted AshLee's rose.

Talk about a letdown. Although, this somehow caused Lacy to get sick and she had to be taken away an ambulance, so that was randomly noteworthy.

Not a lot of drama on the AshLee-Graham front, though, and Bachelor in Paradise Season 1 Episode 5 proceeded without a hitch after that non-cliffhanger.

Michelle chose Cody with her rose, Sarah chose Robert, and Jackie chose Jesse, sending home Marquel and Kalon from Paradise. Sorry, Marquel.

AshLee Frazier came off as an incredibly nice, sweet person on The Bachelor a few seasons ago. A bit clingy, perhaps, but certainly kind and well-meaning.

This season of Bachelor in Paradise has stripped away that facade and then some, as AshLee continues to stoop to new lows when it comes to Clare Crawley.

AshLee Frazier and Clare Crawley

Earlier this season, when Clare asked Graham Bunn on a date, AshLee - who called dibs on Graham after meeting him for 30 minutes - lost her $h!t.

Clare Crawley, Frazier lamented like a rather unstable human being behind closed doors, not only moved in on her turf, she's "not even pretty."

Ouch. Not exactly helping one's image of AshLee, especially when Clare did absolutely nothing wrong and even went out of her way to make it up to her.

Fast forward to Bachelor in Paradise Season 1 Episode 4 last night, when Ash started chatting up Zack Kalter, the new guy Clare has been quasi-dating.

“She had sex in the ocean,” AshLee told Zack, warning him that he should probably date other people. “That speaks a lot to her character. Who does that?"

Bachelor in Paradise Season 1 Episode 4 welcomed back another blast from the past, and featured more of the surprising twists that have become its calling card.

If you watch Bachelor in Paradise online, you know that means tears, drama, more tears, fights and overall nonsense involving Bachelor and Bachelorette castoffs.

Even better? This is the first half of a special two-night Bachelor in Paradise EVENT concluding tonight! Good times! On to Monday night's recap ...

Michelle Money, having been thrown a life raft of sorts when Chris Bukowski and Elise Mosca left together last week, was spurned at the start.

Robert Graham was given the next date card, and chose Sarah Herron, not the Money Maker. At least she helped Sarah braid her hair for their date.

Then it was time for a new arrival: Cody Sattler!

The affable gym rat from Andi Dorfman’s season of The Bachelorette arrived and promptly asked out Clare, who confessed that she was kind of dating Zack.

After Cody persisted, she went to talk to Zack, who she discovered may not have been that into her after all ... but still shot down Cody. Who gave his date to Marcus.
