Bachelor in Paradise 2017 was off to a rough start. No, we’re not talking about the Corinne-DeMario drama. We’re past that. We meant saying goodbye to dear Jorge and his margaritas! Though Wells has been a pleasant replacement, there’s no denying the chemistry between him and one of the contestants. But the bartender isn’t supposed to date the contestants! If you haven’t caught up, be warned. This piece contains spoilers!
Bachelor Nation bid adieu to Jorge, Bachelor in Paradise’s resident bartender for three seasons. While he’s busy fulfilling his dream of Jorge’s Tour-ges, Wells Adams will take over the bar. Is he not supposed to date? Well, too bad because we think he’s got something brewing with one of the ladies in Paradise! Are Wells Adams and Danielle Maltby dating? Find out about their relationship here.
Wells-come to Paradise!
Bachelor Nation knows that Danielle Maltby was vying for Nick Viall in Bachelor season 21. The neonatal nurse was previously engaged to another Nick, a musician who passed away tragically. Her second shot at love also failed when Viall sent her home. But she’s back on Bachelor in Paradise and she got more spunk than ever!
Danielle’s arrival in Sayulita, Mexico showed a side of her we’ve never seen. She was excited to reunite with her girlfriends from the Bachelor mansion and excitedly threw herself on Alexis upon seeing her, effectively summing up the guys’ dreams. It seems she had her sights on Dean in the beginning, but now that Wells is suddenly in the mix, who knows! Chris Harrison announced Jorge’s departure to the group, but the announcement of Wells taking over did anything but dampen their spirits! However, he made a point of mentioning that Wells isn’t allowed to date.
It’s a funny thing to mention since as a mere bartender, Wells isn’t technically a contender on the show. The radio DJ was a contestant on Jojo’s season of The Bachelorette and it was hard not to love his adorable charm. He then participated in BiP season 3, where he was torn between Ashley, Jami, and Shushanna. He decided to leave instead of picking between the ladies. Now, Wells is back in Paradise, but strictly to mix drinks and that’s it.
But we come to know he and Danielle actually go way back! It’s like a match made in Bachelor heaven! They’ve been friends since Danielle lived in Nashville. During one of their conversations, they have a deep heart-to-heart and Danielle suggests that she was open to taking their friendship to another level. But will Wells be allowed to go for Danielle? Bachelor Nation is certainly rooting for these two!
Are Wells and Danielle Dating?
There’s no hint of these two being in a relationship, though it doesn’t look like either is averse to one. Danielle has all but given a rose to Wells, and with their already amicable friendship, it seems these two would be perfect for each other! Wells is in Paradise strictly for business, but does that mean there’s no room for romance outside of Paradise?
The possibility is there. According to the official synopsis by ABC, one lonely lady is not able to bond with any of the men and decides to leave paradise. But before she does, she stops by the bar to have a chat with Wells. They mutually express that they have a crush on each other, but rules prohibit Wells from initiating a relationship on the show.
They don’t mention who the lady is, but we can bet it’s Danielle. She was attracted to Dean from the get-go but he went straight for Kristina. She had something beginning with Jack Stone, but that seemed to fizzle out when the show resumed after the shutdown. Since returning to Paradise, Danielle hasn’t started any romance with any of the guys. Instead, she seems to be the one giving them advice regarding the other girls.
So, Danielle may not be feeling Paradise just yet. Or is she perhaps interested in the bartender more than anyone else there? If she’s the one leaving, fingers crossed Danielle and Wells have a romance outside of BiP!
