Did any “Bachelor in Paradise” couples make it past the show’s finale? They sure did! In fact, one couple is engaged and the other is planning for a possibly televised wedding.
Marcus Grodd and Lacy Faddoul
Grodd and Faddoul got engaged during the finale last week.
Grodd knew Faddoul was the one and professed his love for her in a previous episode. Then, during their finale fantasy date, Faddoul told Grodd he was everything she’s ever wanted.
Before heading to the rose ceremony, where Lacy surely expected to receive a rose, Grodd asked her for a minute alone and guided her to a deck on the beach. This is where he proposed, and she accepted.
After the episode aired, Faddoul told host Chris Harrison she and Grodd are “so excited” about the outcome. She shared a photo on Instagram of Grodd proposing to her on the beach, with the caption, “Thank you from the bottom of my heart to my family, friends, and bachelor nation for all the love and support. This was one of the greatest days.”
The couple also spoke to “People” about the engagement, with Faddoul saying “it definitely feels surreal” and Grodd agreeing, “It’s still a whirlwind for us.”
Cody Sattler and Michelle Money
Sattler and Money had a happy ending as well.
On the finale, Money admitted to having doubts about the relationship, but after talking things over with her daughter, Money decided to spend another night with Sattler and the next day she said he was who she wanted.
“I can honestly look you in the eyes today and tell you that I’m crazy about you, and I’m madly in love with you,” Sattler said during the rose ceremony. “I’m excited to leave Paradise and get our lives going.”
After the show wrapped, Sattler and Money spoke to “Us Weekly,” revealing their plans to move in together and possibly get married on television.
“[My daughter Brielle] loves Cody,” Money said. “We laugh nonstop. Cody is a big jungle gym for her – she climbs all over him. They’re like two little kids.”
Sattler is just as smitten.
“I love everything about this girl,” he said. “I want to marry this girl. I wouldn’t be moving to Salt Lake City if I didn’t see that in the future … I want to get married, and I can’t think of a better person to spend my life with than Michelle.”
When “Us Weekly” brought up the possibility of sharing their future wedding with fans, Money was on board.
“We just talked about this!” she said. “It’s so cool that people watched us fall in love, so I don’t see why we wouldn’t do something so people can continue the journey with us.”
The day after the finale, Money shared a video on Facebook of Sattler playing with her daughter, captioning it “my loves.”
Robert Graham and Sarah Herron
Graham and Herron were the one couple out of the final three who did not make it past the finale episode of “Bachelor in Paradise.”
Prior to their fantasy suite date, Graham and Herron appeared hopeful about their future together, but after Herron didn’t get what she was expecting out of the date, the pair parted ways.
“I wanted to be awake all night, getting to know Robert and Robert getting to know me,” Herron said. “And that didn’t happen. At all.”
Graham claimed he was simply taking things slow with Herron in an effort to build a solid relationship.
“I am so lucky to have experienced Paradise with Robert,” Herron tweeted. “The only regret I have is jumping to conclusions.”
“The show is over and things didn’t work out for all of us as we planned, but I’m happy to say that I met some incredible people and had a great experience overall,” Graham wrote on Instagram.
If Sattler and Money do wed on television, they will be following in the footsteps of several other “Bachelor” and “Bachelorette” couples. The weddings of Trista Rehn and Ryan Sutter, Jason Mesnick and Molly Malaney, Sean Lowe and Catherine Giudici, and Ashley Hebert and J.P. Rosenbaum all aired on ABC specials, as did the Sutter’s vow renewal.
“Bachelor in Paradise” was picked up for a second season, which is expected to air next summer.
