Bachelor in Paradise stars Chris Bukowski and Elise Mosca left together in a touching moment to close out Episode 3, but their romance is already over.

Raise your hand if you’re surprised.

Before Bachelor in Paradise Season 1 Episode 3 even aired, there were whispers of Chris being back on the market. He confirmed that this week.

It’s surprising and yet not. Chris could not stop gushing about Elise Mosca’s body, accentuated in a dress fit for a high-end hooker, before he went home with her.

Despite a torn ACL, he looked poised to tear Elise’s mermaid bikini off and ransack her all night long … but he says he never did after they left the pool.

“We actually ended up not even sleeping in the same room that night,” Chris Bukowski says of the horniest 1-on-1 date on The Bachelor spinoff to date.

He didn’t get into why, but despite their relationship lasting for about a month after leaving Paradise, Chris says he never hit it at any point – seriously!


“So you’re gonna tell me that you did not have sex with Elise that night,” says the interviewer, to which he replied, “Correct, we actually never have.”

“I swear to you I never did,” Chris says, adding that he “wasn’t confident Elise was the right girl for me and didn’t want to lead her on to believe anything different.”

Well. Maybe Chris is actually a nicer guy than ABC leads us to believe when he plays the villain on Bachelor Pad, The Bachelorette and Bachelor in Paradise.

Then again, if The Bachelor spoilers have told is anything, it’s that what you see when you watch Bachelor in Paradise (or any show in the franchise) is not always the whole story.
