And this is the franchise in its off season!
Bachelor in Paradise may have perfected the formula for island-based dating programming during this third outing, but Tuesday night's episode of the ABC reality show was something extra.
Not only were there as many tears shed as there are contestants… but the Bachelor spin-off isn't even following its own rules anymore!

Following Monday night's cliffhanger where resident crier Ashley Iaconetti straight up refused to leave the premises after being eliminated at the rose ceremony, she kind of just never left.
We guess she's claiming squatter's rights on the island??
Unfortunately for her rival Caila Quinn, that means even more Jared Haibon stalking time than usual now that she knows her torch could be snuffed at any minute!
But wait… things got even worse for the almost-Bachelorette, because when last season's winners Jade Roper and Tanner Tolbert stopped by with a date card, they handed it out to Jared and Caila!
Naturally, that sent Ashley into overdrive, where she delivered the following gem to her nemesis upon her return from their boner-inducing river make out session:
"You may be making out with him, but I can make out with his mind. I know how to stimulate him correctly."
Glad to hear you're still all there, Ash.
However, the show isn't just about this love triangle — despite what ABC may want you to believe — because one of the show's "solid" couples totally just broke up!

Apparently, Izzy Goodkind was sooooo physically attracted to Brett Melnick upon his arrival, that she completely kicked Vinny Ventiera to the curb after three weeks of dating!
Proving he was too pure for this BiP-y world… Vinny actually quit after getting dumped!!!
Still, you can't say this show isn't entertaining!!!
Who do U want to see stop by Bachelor in Paradise next week??
