If you watch any of ABC’s Bachelor franchise shows, you probably know that “Bachelor in Paradise” Season 3 is off to the dramatic start we expect from grown adults attempting to find love in a pre-selected pool of people on national television. If you aren’t a member of Bachelor Nation, you might have become aware of it through tabloids in the check-out line at the grocery store or magazines at the library. If you have no idea what I’m talking about, consider yourself blissfully unaware.

Three episodes have aired so far, bringing contestants from previous Bachelor and Bachelorette seasons back for another chance at love in front of a camera. We began with Jared, Emily and Haley (take note: they’re twins), Leah, Lace, Amanda, Jubilee, Sarah, Carly, Izzy, Chad, Daniel, Evan, Grant, Nick, and Vinny. Let’s recap!
Season premiere: Chad was eliminated by the production team after drinking heavily, insulting Lace and Sarah, and passing out on the beach. Clearly, this is not the way to find true love.
Episode 2: Leah and Josh arrived. Evan kissed Carly. Great for Evan, but decidedly less so for Carly, who threw up afterwards. At the Rose Ceremony, Leah and Jubilee were sent home.
Episode 3: Christian and Brandon arrived. Brandon asked out Haley (Twin #1) and boldly claimed he could tell her and Emily (Twin #2) apart. The twins pulled a Parent Trap mid-date to see if Brandon could truly tell the difference. He couldn’t.
