Serena Pitt and Joe Amabile ended the season engaged.
Throughout the entire seventh season of “Paradise,” there wasn’t a stronger couple than “Grocery Store Joe” Amabile (originally from Becca Kufrin’s season) and Pitt (from Matt James’ season). Even though Amabile’s “Paradise” ex Kendall Long showed up at the proposal, nothing could shake their relationship.
They left the beach engaged, and they are still together today. According to an appearance on “Bachelor Happy Hour,” Amabile and Pitt are figuring out where they’re going to live, whether it’s splitting time between Chicago and Toronto, or moving full-time to New York City.
Kenny Braasch and Mari Pepin also got engaged.
Braasch and Pepin had a rocky time in “Paradise” — after starting off strong, Pepin, who was on Matt James’ season, decided that she wanted to be able date other people. Braasch, from Clare Crawley and Tayshia Adams’ season, took that to mean he should start pursuing a relationship with Demi Burnett, Tia Booth, and anyone else who was interested.
However, Pepin soon decided she wanted Braasch back, and they got back together, and he even proposed at the end of the season. They’re still together.
Riley Christian and Maurissa Gunn are the third engaged couple from this season.
Easily the most heartwarming relationship on the beach, Gunn and Christian were the third and final couple to get engaged on this season of “Paradise.” From their very first date, Christian (from the “Clayshia” season) and Gunn (from Peter Weber’s season) could tell this was something special.
After many sweet conversations and declarations of love, Christian got down on one knee and proposed. Gunn accepted, and the two are still together today.
Becca Kufrin and Thomas Jacobs broke up, but they later rekindled their romance off-screen.
When Kufrin walked down the stairs and on to the beach, she became the first former lead to appear on “Paradise” — after getting dumped on TV by Arie Luyendyk, Kufrin went on to star in her own season of “The Bachelorette.” That relationship ended in 2020.
So, it would make sense that she’d be guarded, especially around Jacobs, who got a villain edit on Katie Thurston’s season. However, the two built a solid relationship … until Kufrin called things off during the finale.
However, the two reconnected in real life, and they are now happily dating.
It looks like Noah Erb and Abigail Heringer are also back on.
Heringer, from Matt James’ season, and Erb, from Tayshia Adams’ season, went on the first date of “Paradise,” and they were together for the entire season, with a few hiccups along the way.
In the penultimate episode of the season, Erb decided that he was simultaneously falling in love with Heringer and didn’t think she was “his person.” They left Mexico separately.
But like Kufrin and Jacobs, the two reconnected post-“Paradise” and are also happily dating.
Chris Conran and Alana Milne are dating after getting kicked off “Paradise” together.
Conran, who was eliminated on night one of Clare Crawley’s season, was originally dating Jessenia Cruz of Matt James’ season, but that changed when Alana Milne, also from James’ season, entered the beach.
The two quickly decided to pursue a relationship, leaving Cruz in the dust. In turn, everyone on the beach ganged up on them and claimed that they’d been dating pre-“Paradise,” a claim they both denied.
After the cast essentially told them that none of them would speak to the couple if they stayed, they left separately.
But in recent weeks, Conran and Milne have been hanging out together, and Milne confirmed the relationship on her Instagram story, posting a photo of the two kissing captioned, “Paradise is wherever I’m with you.”
Conran reposted and wrote: “3 months of no cameras or producers.”
After he spent the season searching for love, James Bonsall ended up breaking things off with Anna Redman during the finale.
Bonsall, aka Box from Katie Thurston’s season, had been on the beach almost all season long, but he didn’t form a meaningful connection with anyone until the end of the season when it seemed like he and Tia Booth, originally of Arie Luyendyk’s season, hit it off.
But when Paradise prom happened, Redman (from Matt James’ season) entered the show and Bonsall immediately began pursuing her.
However, he ultimately decided that he wasn’t feeling it and left the season, although not alone … more on that later.
Bonsall’s bestie Aaron Clancy also left the beach after breaking things off with Tia Booth.
Clancy, of Katie Thurston’s season, also bounced around a lot, though it seemed like he was happy with Chelsea Vaughn from Matt James’ season. But at the prom, things took a turn.
After Bonsall decided to pursue Redman, Clancy took the opportunity to kiss Booth, who had been talking to Bonsall. But, when it came time to decide if they wanted to enter the Fantasy Suites, Clancy declined and left the beach single, much to Booth’s chagrin.
Ed Waisbrot and Mykenna Dorn also ended things during the finale, even though Waisbrot didn’t want to.
Waisbrot, from the “Clayshia” season, and Dorn, from Peter Weber’s season, only met one episode prior, but that didn’t stop Waisbrot from asking Dorn if she wanted to explore their relationship further.
She turned him down, and they each left single.
Before Dorn, Waisbrot had been talking to Natasha Parker, also from Weber’s season, but he decided to pursue Dorn after the prom.
The biggest love story of “Paradise” this season was arguably between James Bonsall and Aaron Clancy.
All season long, viewers got to see Clancy and Bonsall’s friendship — which started on Katie Thurston’s season — develop and grow into a legitimately sincere bond.
In fact, it was so strong that after Bonsall broke things off with Redman, he asked Clancy if he wanted to leave “Paradise” and head back to San Diego together. Clancy accepted, broke up with Booth, and they rode off into the sunset together … and are currently roommates in San Diego, according to the montage during the finale.
