In a match made in heaven, or at least Bachelor in Paradise (which may be the closest thing on Earth), Lacy Faddoul and Marcus Grodd are engaged!

Marcus, who thought he'd found his soulmate in Andi Dorfman, found true love with a cast member on Juan Pablo Galavis' season of The Bachelor, Lacy Faddoul.

All thanks to the spinoff Bachelor in Paradise, which was filmed in June and features other castoffs from the franchise. It will premiere on ABC August 4.

As The Bachelorette spoilers predicted, Grodd was an early favorite this season, and the first to tell Andi he loved her - even before Nick, Josh or Chris.

During the hometown dates, Grodd said Andi Dorfman was "everything" to him. "Andi is my soul mate. I feel it with her," he gushed. "I'm ready to propose."

That chance never came, as he was soon given the boot.

Looks like Farmer Chris might have some competition for The Bachelor.

While Andi Dorfman's beloved Iowan castoff was believed to have the job wrapped up, sources say that come 2015, he may not be The Bachelor after all.

The reason? Another fan favorite - from 2012 - is still in the running:

Arie Luyendyk Jr., the son of two-time Indianapolis 500 winner Arie Luyendyk and second-place finisher on Emily Maynard's Bachelorette season.

"Producers have already filmed him at home in Arizona, and even sent a personal trainer to get him in shape for TV," says an insider. "They think he’d be perfect.”

Emily Maynard surprisingly left Arie Luyendyk Jr. and Sean Lowe high and dry in favor of Jef Holm on the 2012 finale. Their engagement didn't last.

Season 10 of The Bachelorette is headed down the home stretch, with just two episodes (one of them being the Men Tell All special) to go this summer.

Obviously, the two big questions on every viewer's mind are:

  1. Will Andi Dorfman pick Nick Viall or Josh Murray?
  2. Who will be The Bachelor come January 2015?
Soules Man

The Bachelorette spoilers have shed light on the first topic, perhaps more so than in any previous season, given the video footage that surfaced.

If you haven't seen Nick Viall talk about the finale on the plane ride back from the Dominican, that will tell you how it went ... one way or the other.

As for who will dole out the roses next season, it was widely believed to be Chris Soules' gig if he wanted it, but now we're not quite so sure.

The Bachelor star Juan Pablo Galavis was caught cozying up to a sexy brunette last weekend, and Angela Cottone says he never mentioned Nikki Ferrell once.

Their encounter at The Pool After Dark at Harrah’s in Atlantic City, N.J., on July 12, was reportedly by TMZ and sparked rumors that he and Nikki were done.

Juan Pablo Galavis, Angela Cottone

It's not like Juan Pablo Galavis and Nikki Ferrell were ever engaged. He hasn't even told her he loves her. But it only reinforced his shady reputation.

According to witnesses, Juan Pablo recognized Ang, approached her, started running game, got "incredibly flirtatious" and asked for her number.

“He was touching my hand and my arm,” Angela Cottone, 36, tells In Touch.

Juan Pablo, just one day earlier, was gushing about how he missed Ferrell.

“I thought he was single!” Angela tells the celebrity gossip publication.

Is hunky Iowa farmer Chris Soules The Bachelor for next season? That rumor certainly received a nice boost after last night's episode of The Bachelorette.

Why? If you missed it, we'll break it down below ...

WARNING: The Bachelorette spoilers ahead!

With three romantic dates on tap in the Dominican Republic and only two roses to give out, Andi Dorfman faced a tough choice on the penultimate episode.

Following days (and nights) with co-frontrunners Nick Viall and Josh Murray that exceeded expectations, The Bachelorette's choice was already made.

For Chris Soules, that meant a surprise, early exit Monday.

Much like Andi herself, Chris finished in third place and never made it to the rose ceremony (though Dorfman removed herself from The Bachelor).

Juan Pablo Galavis and Nikki Ferrell are either over or likely to be over very soon after she sees these photos of some woman all over him last weekend.

The Bachelor star apparently cut ties with Nikki Ferrell, according to the lady in question, who was mauling JPG at Harrah's in Atlantic City, N.J.

Ang Cottone, who TMZ has photos of, and who evidently fought with Tan Mom Patricia Krentcil on Howard Stern's radio show, was at the club Saturday.

According to Ang, Juan Pablo recognized her, approached her, started working game, was "incredibly flirtatious" and before long asked for her number.

Anyone out there surprised by this? Hello?

The possible twist here, though, is twofold:

The Bachelor's Renee Oteri is pregnant and expecting her first child with her husband Bracy Maynard, and her second overall, she confirmed this weekend.

The reality star and mom to 9-year-old Ben is three months along.

"It's so weird because it's been nine years since I've been pregnant and I've had almost no symptoms. I've just been a little tired," she told Us Weekly.

Renee Oteri, Fiance

It was confirmed in March that the photographer, 32, who made it to hometown dates with Juan Pablo Galavis, and her ex-military man got engaged.

He took current Bachelorette star Andi Dorfman, Clare Crawley and winner Nikki Ferrell on to the final three, sending single mom Renee home.

"She is so happy and has wanted this with her fiance for a very long time!" an insider said then. "He's always the one everyone wanted to see her with!"

Just three months later, Renee Oteri married him.

Chris Soules has won his fair share of admirers amongst female Bachelorette fans, but a stunning collection of court documents may soon cost Chris some followers.

Yes, he's so popular with audiences that it's been rumored Soules will be the next Bachelor, but Radar Online has obtained evidence that indicates Soules has a long history of arrests, many of them alcohol-related.

Radar reports that Soules' legal troubles date back to 2001, when he was fined for underage possession of alcoholism.

Pretty minor stuff, but that was only the first of Chris' many brushes with the law:

Soules went on to enter an astonishing thirteen guilty pleas throughout adolescence and young adulthood, most of them booze-related.

Nikki Ferrell and Juan Pablo Galavis are defying the skeptics' predictions of romantic doom and appear to be going stronger than ever these days.

Check out the latest photo of The Bachelor couple and see for yourself:

Nikki Ferrell, Juan Pablo Love

Genuinely happy as we're sure they are, Juan Pablo clearly wants Bachelor Nation to know this is for real, and rub it in the haters' faces a little bit.

Nikki Ferrell captioned the photo of herself and her true love: "Don't mind us, we're just off in our own world here. Te extrano mucho #myheart."

He sure does #likeyoualot Nikki. It's so beyond magical.

In all seriousness, we're happy for them. A bit surprised and still a little cynical that he'll ever change or compromise for her, but we wish them the best.

Whomever is chosen as the next Bachelor (looking at you, Chris Soules), he won't have to try hard when it comes to winning over more fans than JPG.

The Bachelorette contestant Chris Soules, a.k.a. Chris the Farmer, has been one of the most popular cast members this season from the start.

He revealed Monday that he is Andi Dorfman’s secret admirer, and has plenty of admirers of his own among card-carrying members of Bachelor Nation.

That's no secret. And it's no wonder that the 32-year-old Iowan is now rumored to be the next star of The Bachelor when the series returns in 2015.

The news, if it's true, will come disappointment to some fans, who had lobbied producers to make Marquel Martin the show's first-ever African-American star.

Of course, Marquel (along with Cody Sattler) will be on Bachelor in Paradise after The Bachelorette season ends, so he was likely never in the running.

As for the source of this rumor, follow the jump for the details below, although The Bachelorette spoilers are included, so consider yourselves warned ...
