"All the couples are separated with one gender going to another villa and meeting new singles," he revealed. "I think the women were the ones that moved to a new location in Mexico, and were introduced to five new men brought in.

On July 6, Reality Steve tweeted the BIP final couple results. In the end, only two couples left the beach engaged.
Those two couples are:

Additionally, Reality Steve shared that two couples left BIP as a couple:
- Michael Allio and Danielle Maltby
- Tyler Norris and Brittany Galvin
And the last two couples broke up:
