Bachelor in Paradise Season 8 is over, and according to Tuesday night’s finale, so are some of its strongest relationships.
The reality series throws a group of Bachelor and Bachelorette alum together on a Mexico beach for a few weeks, then gives them the option to break up, continue their relationship outside of Paradise, or leave the show engaged when filming ends. It’s a super unconventional way of finding a forever partner, but as we know from Bachelor in Paradise royalty like Jade Roper and Tanner Tolbert, Ashley Iaconetti and Jared Haibon, Raven Gates and Adam Gottschalk, and more, finding lasting love in Paradise is possible.
So which couples are still together from Bachelor in Paradise Season 8? Who got engaged, and stayed engaged? And which Season 8 couples reunited at the Bachelor in Paradise reunion special, which filmed earlier this month on November 4? Here’s everything we know about which Bachelor in Paradise Season 8 couples are still together, and consider this your official SPOILER warning.
Are Kira and Romeo still together after Bachelor in Paradise?
Yes! For those who’ve already blocked the first half of Season 8 out of their brains, Kira and Romeo were OG Paradise cast members who spontaneously decided to leave Paradise together in Episode 5. As the two filmed their final confessional, a wide-eyed Romeo looked so spooked that he got the meme treatment from Bachelor Nation Twitter. Fans laughed back then, but as we noted in our Season 8 reunion recap, Kira assured viewers she didn’t “kidnap” Romeo. “He’s fine. We’re very happy!” she said, patting his knee. When host Jesse Palmer gave Romeo the final word and asked him to blink twice if he was OK, Romeo comically blinked twice, then leaned over and kissed Kira! As of November 4, the two were still together.
Are Jill and Jacob together after Bachelor in Paradise?
Yes! (We think.) Fans will recall that Jill and Jacob split after Split Week and Jill headed home heartbroken. But during the Season 8 reunion, Jacob tried to win Jill back, and it seems he succeeded. “The one regret I actually have is I had such a connection with you,” Jacob said before walking over to Jill on stage. “As far distance as we are, I think you and I do have a real connection. I’m open to a relationship with you if you are.” Jill said she was open as well, the two kissed, and Jacob picked her up and carried her off stage. Though it’s unclear if they’re seriously giving post-Paradise dating a shot, the two did share Instagram stories with each other after the reunion aired. A promising sign!
Are Tyler and Brittany still together after Bachelor in Paradise?
No. Though Tyler and Brittany happily left Paradise together in Episode 15, the reunion revealed they had a brutal breakup. As we noted in our Season 8 reunion recap, Tyler came on stage alone to share his side of the story. “You think that you found something that could potentially be forever, and I thought I had that. I didn’t,” he said. “Everything was awesome. She came to Jersey right away, I went to Chicago not long after, met her family, and it was perfect. But right after that, she said, ‘I just want to get away for a little bit. I’m gonna go to London, then I’m gonna go to Italy.’ And she FaceTimed me from Italy and said that she felt like we were two different people living two different lives and she just couldn’t do it anymore.” When Brittany joined him on stage, she explained that when they left Paradise, their relationship was “at an all-time high,” but she slowly fell out of love with Tyler. Tyler added that she just so happened to break up with him the same day Bachelorette lead Rachel Recchia dumped him on national television. Ouch!
Are Michael and Danielle still together after Bachelor in Paradise?
Yes! One of Paradise’s favorite couples, Michael and Danielle, have never been better. At the reunion, the two revealed that Danielle is in the process of moving to Akron, Ohio, to be closer to Michael and his son James, who BTW, Danielle has met! “She’s met him a bunch of times. She’s remarkable with him and that’s no surprise at all,” Michael said before telling Danielle he LOVES HER for the first time ever on stage. AHHHH!
Are Johnny and Victoria still together after Bachelor in Paradise?
No. Big no! Super mega colossal no! Johnny and Victoria DID get engaged in the Season 8 finale, but we learned they didn’t get their happily ever after during the reunion show. “As of right now, me and Victoria are not engaged anymore. We broke up,” Johnny explained. “I want to say I’m good, but it really does break my heart that she’s not sitting next to me as my fiancé right now. In that timeframe of stepping out of filming to that one month of being engaged, I started to feel not good enough for her, and then we started arguing…and rumors started surfacing. And I really wanted to trust her, but I don’t know.”
Those rumors he was referring to were rumors that Victoria cheated on him with Greg Grippo, a contestant from Season 17 of The Bachelorette. When Victoria joined Johnny on stage, she assured everyone that although she is currently (as of November 4) dating Greg, she did not cheat on Johnny with him. To that, Johnny said, “I still consider talking to someone else while we’re working on our issues cheating or emotional cheating.” After the uncomfortable exchange, Johnny left and Greg joined Victoria on stage to chat about their relationship.

Are Brandon and Serene still together after Bachelor in Paradise?
Yes! Yes! A thousand times yes! Bachelor in Paradise’s strongest Season 8 couple survived until the very end and is still on track to get married. As we shared in our finale recap, Brandon asked Serene to marry him, she said yes, and though they didn’t get married in Mexico with Jesse Palmer, they’re still very much in love. After the finale aired, they even made their engagement Instagram official. Protect this love at all costs.
