It can be hard to predict which Bachelor Nation couples are going to find happily-ever-after when the cameras stop rolling. And while it was pretty clear that Taylor Nolan and Derek Peth had found a love connection on this season of Bachelor in Paradise, we’re still floored by reports that these two are engaged.
Us Weekly and People confirmed that Peth, 29, proposed to Nolan, 24, during the taping of Bachelor in Paradise’s after-show on Wednesday, August 30. According to Us Weekly, he popped the question with a Neil Lane ring.
Nolan came to Paradise after missing out on love during Nick Viall’s season of The Bachelor (where she infamously butted heads with Corinne Olympios). And loyal viewers will remember Peth as one of the contestants from JoJo Fletcher‘s season of The Bachelorette.
The two immediately hit it off on season four of BiP, though there was a bit of drama between them after Nolan expressed her concerns about the viability of their relationship outside of the show. When Peth responded with, “F*ck you,” Nolan (who happens to be a mental health counselor) was NOT impressed. And that’s putting it mildly.
Though they managed to patch things up, fans were still left wondering if Paradise would make or break this pair.
Now it looks as if we have our answer. We just hope this means we’ll get to watch another BiP wedding next summer after enjoying Carly Waddell and Evan Bass’ beachside ceremony earlier this year.
Get ready for more love, loss, and drama, drama, DRAMA when the Bachelor in Paradise finale airs on September 11 at 8pm ET on ABC.
