Marcus Grodd and Lacy Faddoul got engaged on the Bachelor in Paradise season finale, but is there already trouble in paradise for the attractive duo?

Recent reports suggest that Marcus is dating around after proposing to Lacy. Could this revelation spell the end of their whirlwind romance and engagement?

The other woman in Marcus’ life, allegedly, is Sydney Rae James, who insiders claim assumed that her new beau’s relationship with Lacy was already over.

Of course, she assumed that, having seen him get engaged on The Bachelor and Bachelorette spinoff on ABC. Why would he ask her out otherwise?

On the flip side ... how could this not have come up!?

On the flip flip side ... it's Bachelor In Paradise. Marcus Grodd and Lacy Faddoul got engaged after like a month. Then they went back to real life.

Crazier assumptions have been made. Just saying.

Says a source who dished on Syd's alleged date:

Juan Pablo Galavis and Nikki Ferrell appeared on the premiere of VH1's Couples Therapy Wednesday night, and it was literally painful to watch.

Seriously, if you watch The Bachelor, you know how indescribably bad he was on that? Well, this is probably worse, because he's almost more earnest.

Normally that's a good thing, but with Juan Pablo? Being more earnest just means being even more open and honest about what a douche he is.

Remember when Juan Pablo Galavis non-proposed to Nikki Ferrell and didn't tell her he loved her, but she agreed to stay with him on the finale?

Well, that was then and ... it's also now. On Couples Therapy, we learn that he still hasn't done so, and still has no idea (or concern) about Nikki's feelings.

Dr. Jenn Berman, the soothing counseling and reality show host, asked Juan Pablo gently on the premiere what he thinks about the duo's future.

“I haven’t thought about it,” he says.

Words fail us at this point, honestly.

The Bachelor's Catherine Giudici and Sean Lowe are head over heels in love, enjoying marriage, and looking to start a family sooner rather than later.

Not shocking if you know Sean and Catherine. These two basically reside on Cloud Nine, which might get irritating if it weren't so darned adorable.

So when are the lovebirds thinking about procreating?

"Eventually," Catherine said when asked that very question. "Not like in the next couple months, but we're definitely thinking about it in the next year or so."

Sean Lowe, Giudici's husband of nearly nine months, said that "we're all over the place" with travel plans, but that it's in the cards for them, and soon.

If you watch The Bachelor or Bachelor in Paradise, you know that relationships which thrive on ABC don't always continue to do so in the "real world."

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.

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.

All stars of The Bachelor are, by definition, fairly good looking individuals.

But Iowa farmer Chris Soules, a man's man with a million-dollar smile and winning personality to go with his handsome features, may take the cake.

Chris Soules: Hottest Bachelor Yet?

Just look at this photo of him from the Iowa State Fair. We rest our case.

Even if he wasn't your first choice, now that the 32-year-old is confirmed as The Bachelor, there's no denying that he brings a certain X factor to the role.

Not only is Chris Soules easy on the eyes, viewers and contestants alike know exactly where they stand, as he's there looking for a lifelong companion.

Yes, as The Bachelor, this is inherent ... to a point. Read: Juan Pablo Galavis.

Sometimes, the franchise's stars bring an element of mystery, and things don't work out as you'd expect. With Chris, you pretty much know he'll be great.

The Bachelor stars Sean Lowe and Catherine Giudici may have had an unconventional love story, but the bond they found was unconditional, and everlasting.

It's hard to believe it's been 17 months since he proposed on The Bachelor season finale. Clearly, the honeymoon phase isn't over, nor will it be anytime soon.

Sean Lowe GUSHED about Catherine in his latest blog post.

Sean, Catherine Lowe

Titled "Caught in Her Web," his August 22 entry on Patheos details "how and when" the Texan realized he wanted to spend the rest of his life with Giudici.

"I guess it was around the time we took a little trip to Thailand," he wrote of Catherine Giudici, the woman that before long would take his heart, and his name.

"Sure, there were two other girls on the trip, but something was settling in my heart about Catherine and it was there to stay. I didn't want to say goodbye to her... ever."

Lowe goes on to praise his wife as "sweet, kind, smokin' hot, goofy, caring, and funny." He fell not just for her, but "the idea of going through life with her."

Chris the Farmer is ready to find his Soules mate.

The Iowa native, a fan favorite during Andi Dorfman's season of The Bachelorette, came on Good Morning America today after being confirmed as The Bachelor.

"I believe in the process," Chris Soules told the morning show's panel. "I believe in what I went through on the previous show and that's why I'm doing it."

Chris got the nod over Arie Luyendyk Jr. for The Bachelor, insiders say, because of his unusual background - not to mention fans' strong connection to him.

Unlike past Bachelor stars, it's very clear what he has to offer. Being a farmer's wife in Iowa might not appeal to every woman, but those it does appeal to?

Expect them to fight hard for Chris, because he blends his manly, yet sophisticated persona with an aura of confidence and chivalry to the role.

"My focus is going to be to make the girls that are on the show as comfortable as possible," he added. "That was my first initial challenge, was opening up to Andi."

"I'm going to do my best. I'm humbled, flattered, grateful."

There’s still a lot of growing to do in our relationship. We will not tie the knot until I am mentally and physically prepared as well as Matt.
