John Paul Jones Almost Married His Ex, and the Thought of Him Never Gracing Our TVs Is Devastating


There has never been anyone quite like John Paul Jones on any Bachelor franchise show. He's a character who warrants his full name, or a nickname that is JPJ, and nothing else. The chicken-nugget-loving slow-talking fan favorite from Hannah Brown's season of The Bachelorette is proving his softer side on this season of Bachelor in Paradise

We've seen the antics we expected from him – like when he threw up after having spicy tacos, or when he fell asleep in the pool — but we've also seen some unexpected moments that have us wondering if we've had John Paul Jones wrong this whole time. On the August 19 episode of Paradise, JPJ opened up about the ex-girlfriend he almost got engaged to and how he really wants to find someone who is the right partner for him.
