Chris Randone and Krystal Nielson after meeting last season on Bachelor In Paradise got married on Tuesday’s episode, but were upstaged by a fight over a woman.
The usually mellow John Paul Jones, 24, was furious because a woman he liked had been given a rose by Derek Peth, 32, possibly ruining his chances with her.
John Paul, who was ‘in love’ with Tayshia Adams, 28, yelled at Derek loudly in front of the wedding guests.

‘You are full of s***,’ John Paul told the man. ‘You’re in this for fame. You take advantage of women. You are not in this for the right reasons, Derek.’
Derek couldn’t get a word in edgewise.
‘You’re not allowing me to speak,’ he interjected, trying to defend himself.
‘Get out of my sight!’ John Paul roared.

Tayshia, watching it all from across the room, sobbed quietly.
It was an emotional week for many of the castmates, as couples formed and dissolved.
Caelynn Miller-Keyes thought everything was going well for her, and then she got dumped.

She celebrated her 24th birthday on the night of the show’s third rose ceremony, during which she received a rose from recent partner Dean Unglert, 26.
‘Dean has made my birthday so special,’ Caelynn said happily, glowing as she mentioned how he had arranged a cake and champagne for her, and had the cast sing ‘Happy Birthday.’
‘He really has grown and I can see that,’ she opined, adding that they had been talking about marriage and babies. ‘I’m excited about us.’

Dean later that night ended his relationship with her.
‘I know that I won’t be able to get where you would need me to be by the end of this,’ he said.
He elected to leave Paradise, saying she was too good for him, and that it was better to admit everything to her now.
Breaking up: Dean broke up with the birthday girl after celebrating the milestone with her
‘You should have a guy that’s 100 percent gung-ho jumping into a relationship with you, because you’re awesome and you deserve that,’ Dean said.
‘I’ve been honestly just waiting for it to end, as s****y as that is,’ a teary Caelynn confessed. ‘But I was hopeful that you were gonna try.’
She walked back to the group, broken-hearted.

John Paul was feeling similarly bleak.
Feeling down: John Paul was struggling with his feelings for Tayshia
‘It’s very difficult to see the woman that you’re in love …with some other guy,’ he said, sobbing.

Just then, Tayshia found a box on a table and called the cast down to see it.

Inside was a group invite to the wedding of Krystal and Christopher, both 31, who met on season five of the show.
Many famous Bachelor and Bachelorette couples were also invited.
On the afternoon of the event, Bachelor in Paradise vets were in heavy attendance, with newlyweds Jared Haibon, 30, and Ashley Iaconetti, 31, joining the newly engaged Adam Gottschalk, 29, and Raven Gates, 28, and Kendall Long, 28, and Joe Amabile, 32.

Her partner, Clay Harbour, 31, dreaded the event, as his ex-girlfriend Angela Amezcua, 29, was a bridesmaid and they hadn’t seen each other since their break-up.
Caelynn, also unhappy at the wedding, grew excited when she saw Connor Saeli, 24, arrive.

John Paul meanwhile eyeballed Derek.
‘Derek is that creepy guy who graduated five years ago and comes back to the high-school parties despite the fact that he’s a grown-ass man,’ he snarked in a confessional.

‘I can’t do this right now,’ she told him.
Not now: Tayshia Adams was not ready to talk to John Paul at the wedding
John Paul argued that she was being manipulated ‘by the wrong person.’
‘I’ve got to take out the trash when it starts to smell like s***,’ he insisted.
As the wedding ceremony began, Krystal walked down the aisle to Prayed For You, played by emerging country artist Matt Stell.

‘I’ve been pursuing Tayshia for weeks. All of a sudden, he just decides willy-nilly that he wants to pursue Tayshia,’ John Paul fumed.
He said that Derek had told him he’d previously hooked up with fans of the show, using his fame to his advantage.
‘I don’t want anyone messing with her, anyone that could potentially break her heart,’ he offered.

‘A man that takes advantage of women because of the very temporary status that he’s acquired through this process doesn’t really strike me as a man of integrity… a man that’s ready for a real commitment,’ John Paul said.
In a confessional, John Paul called Derek a ‘Bachelor Nation groupie,’ adding: ‘He’s mentioned multiple times that you can ‘f***’ some of the women that follow you.’
He even suggested Derek was just trying to gather material for his podcast.
Demi Burnett, 24, knew that John Paul was jealous.

Derek tried to get him to take a moment.

‘Name one thing I said that’s false, Derek,’ John Paul replied, growing heated as he continued to vent. ‘Don’t insult my intelligence, Derek.’

Clay, Blake, Caelynn, Mike, Tayshia, Kristina Schulman, 27, and couple Hannah Goodwin and Dylan Barbour, both 24, were all allowed to go.

Blake, who wasn’t having any luck in Paradise, grew despondent.
Caelynn decided to make a go for Connor, taking him outside for a chat.

‘I’m happy you’re here,’ she told him, as they flirted and kissed.

‘I care about you a lot,’ he told her. ‘You’re a special person to me, and you’re a sweetheart.’

Angela, who was rumored to have lost a lot of weight for the wedding, wasn’t having it.
She reminded him that he had once said, ‘I don’t ever picture anybody else as my wife.’
‘We didn’t decide [to end things],’ she pointed out. ‘You decided.’
Gentle reminder: Angela reminded Clay that he once said he couldn’t picture anybody else but her as his wife
‘I never wanted to hurt you,’ Clay explained, looking her straight in the eye. ‘I know coming here maybe was selfish, and I’m sorry.’
‘You said you needed to figure things out,’ Angela recalled. ‘You needed to be alone. You needed to find yourself.’
Clay, a former football player, explained that he had just been cut from the NFL at the time.

He asked Caelynn on a date that found them creating ‘body art’ as they smeared each other with paint and slid across a canvas.
‘Yesterday, I was at a wedding, crying over Dean,’ Caelynn marveled. ‘Today, I’m covered in paint, making out with Connor.’
‘Dean and I would have never worked,’ she agreed. ‘I’m really happy that now I have something.’

No worries: Clay assured Nicole Alvar-Lopez that she had nothing to worry about
‘If Angela came down those steps, Clay and Nicole would not be together anymore,’ her pal Tayshia fretted.
