"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."

All's fair in love and reality TV, right?
While there's no doubt that many of our favorite contestants on The Bachelor and The Bachelorette over the years would probably agree with that phrase, there are quite a few seem to have taken it a little too literally.
