Bachelor in Paradise Recap: The Amber-Ashley I.-Jared Love Triangle Is Born, Samantha Finally Sends Joe Home

In classic fashion, Sunday's episode of Bachelor in Paradise kicked off with some good old Samantha-Joe drama.
Samantha, who had said yes to a date with Justin the night before, mysteriously changed her mind the next morning, deciding she wouldn't be going on the date and that she wanted to get back together with Joe. (Keep in mind she had just dumped him on his birthday.) Joe, of course, was so over-the-moon at her sudden change of heart that he didn't think for a second that she might flip-flop on him again. Spoiler alert: She did, and it wasn't pretty.

If you thought the Great Joe-Samantha Textgate of 2015 would finally be resolved on Monday's Bachelor in Paradise, think again.
In part 2 of this week's episode, Joe continued to pine after Samantha after she unceremoniously dumped him on his birthday the day before – and when that didn't work, he switched tactics and began to threaten to expose her role in their grand scheme – and shockingly, that didn't work either.

On Sunday's episode of Bachelor in Paradise, we almost felt a little sympathy for Joe as he spent the entire time following Samantha around like a lovesick puppy, threw himself a romantic birthday dinner and then got dumped.
But then we remembered that Joe fully established himself as this season's villain and realized we don't actually feel bad for him at all.
Bachelor in Paradise Recap: 'Public Enemy No. 1' Joe and Samantha's Sneaky Scheme Is Revealed – Samantha Was in on It

We're starting to wonder if this show should be called Bachelor in Paradise or Joe the Villain in Paradise.
On Monday's episode, the Joe-Juelia-Samantha saga continued as it was finally officially revealed that Samantha was in on the whole scheme with Joe from the beginning (to recap: Joe used Juelia to get her rose in order to stay on the show until Samantha – to whom he had been talking for more than a month before the show starting filming – arrived in Mexico).

After PEOPLE set up a surprise photo shoot for Bachelor in Paradise's season 2 villain Joe Bailey and his dream woman Samantha Steffen on Sunday's episode, Executive Editor Kate Coyne says all those rumors that BiP's showmances aren't real don't hold water.

"It was really down-to-earth, it was really comforting," said Joe, who created a rather uncomfortable situation back in the house by allegedly leading on fellow contestant Juelia so he could stay on the show until Samantha arrived.
Samantha – who had just joined the cast in Paradise before being whisked away for her first one-on-date at the PEOPLE photo shoot – called the Vidanta Resort in Nuevo Vallarta, Nayarit, Mexico, "the most beautiful setting ever," and said, "I think being with him went super well."

After the rose ceremony, in which Jonathan, Mikey and Michael were sent home, this week the Bachelor in Paradise couples were all over the place, with some solidifying their healthy relationship (Carly and Kirk), some breaking up unexpectedly (Ashley S. and Dan) and some just blowing our minds (Joe and his complete lack of respect and decency).

In an exclusive sneak peek at Sunday's episode, the Southerner and the woman of his dreams head to a gorgeous rooftop pool and get the A-list treatment when their one-on-one date includes a PEOPLE photo shoot, helmed by the magazine's Executive Editor Kate Coyne, at the Vidanta Resort in Nuevo Vallarta, Nayarit, Mexico.
"I guess I'm kind of excited, but at the same time I'm very nervous," Joe admits. "It's a lot of pressure knowing that 40 million people will see these photos."

From The Bachelor to Bachelor in Paradise to online dating, Sarah Herron has truly dated across all platforms.
With that expertise in mind, Herron is weighing in with an unexpected choice for who should be next season's Bachelor: Nick Viall.
Herron, 29, tells PEOPLE she is "good friends" with Kaitlyn Bristowe's runner-up and thinks he would be "interesting in the same way Kaitlyn was" if he were to be selected as the next Bachelor (an appointment which has yet to be confirmed by ABC).
"I think he would keep it real, and it would be exciting," says Herron of the controversial suitor, 34. "You never know what to expect with Nick, so I just know he would keep you on your toes, and he's definitely provocative and knows how to stir the pot."
