Bachelor in Paradise LIVE tonight – Brendan & Pieper QUIT show after admitting they're there for 'money and followers'

EPISODE eight of Bachelor In Paradise showed "villains" Brendan Morais and Pieper James quitting the show.

The controversial couple was caught on the hot mic admitting that they joined the show to "boost their followers."

In addition to boasting about gaining an Instagram following, Pieper was also heard saying she "can't wait to make more money" by being an influencer.

Fans have been slamming the two for being on the show for fame instead of love – which resulted in Brendan losing over 100K Instagram followers. In last weeks episode fans also compared them to couple Chris and Alana, saying they were just as bad and accusing them of pre-show dating

The Bachelor spinoff announced that they will no longer be airing Monday nights and will continue on with their seventh season on Tuesdays.

Tonight's episode featured a cocktail party where 5 of the girls were at risk of getting sent home as they were unable to secure a rose.

    BRENDAN AND PIEPER LEAVE PARADISE 

    After minutes of deliberation, Pieper and Brendan decided they were going to leave. 

    Appearing disappointed, the bad boy of the beach told the group: “This is not the environment we want to be in.

    “This is the girl I want to be with. I appreciate all of you guys but we’re going to leave on our own terms. So bye guys!”

    Pieper admitted she has money on the brain and not love for joining Bachelor In Paradise.

    She told Brendan: "I'm excited for the future possibility of making more money but I could have gotten there on my own.

    FIESTY BRENDAN

    Brendan tried to make his behavior seem okay by saying: “I’m sorry you guys made the rule book for Paradise and for dating."

    Demi exclaimed back at him: “F**k off, f**k off!”

    “I am done with this. I’ve said everything I need to say. None of this concerns you," he told the women.

    He added that the girls were "disgruntled women" and that their concerns were a "pathetic" excuse of a behavior.

    BRENDAN TRIES TO DEFEND HIMSELF 

    When the group questions why Brendan even came to Paradise if he likes Pieper, he attempted to defend his controversial behavior. 

    Brendan said: “It’s not like ‘hey Pieper, do you want to be my girlfriend?’ That never happened in any way. I hoped she was coming, I liked Pieper before the show. 

    “I never promised Natasha we were going to be anything more than we were.”

    Pieper responded: “I couldn’t be clearer I came here to meet Brendan.”

    'CLOUT CHASING MOTHERF**KERS'

    Joe, Jessenia, Natasha and Demi discussed how the dynamic between Brendan and Pieper was similar to Chris and Alana.

    The group decided collectively they needed more answers… and needed the duo off the beach.

    "Obviously they came here to get more clout, more followers. They're clout chasing mother-f**kers," Demi slammed Brendan and Pieper.

    The group then walked over to Brendan and Pieper – who were sitting on an oceanside daybed – to confront them about their controversial behavior.

    ‘EXTREMELY NERVOUS’ 

    “The boys are handing out the roses tonight and all the girls are extremely nervous,” Demi confessed.

    'SO GROSS'

    Demi Burnett was slammed for “mocking” ex Colton Underwood’s homosexuality in a previous episode.

    The 26-year-old joked about Tia Booth’s “gaydar” during Tuesday’s episode of the dating reality show.

    During Tuesday’s episode of the show, Tia set her sights on Demi’s man Kenny Braasch, 40.

    After Tia asked Kenny on a date, Demi angrily said: "The only thing worse than Tia's gaydar is her denim shorts.”

    The comment was a dig at Colton, who came out as gay earlier this year.

    Noting that Demi is bisexual, one person wrote: “Demi is very judgmental about Tia dating Colton and making gross gaydar comments as if 1) she didn’t also date Colton 2) she isn’t part of the LGBTQIA+ community.”

    Another added: “Oof Demi please do not criticize Tia’s ‘gaydar’ that is not a good look.”

    A third chimed in: “Not desperate Demi talking about a gaydar….”

    JOE YELLS KENDALL 'WOULDN'T TRY TO SAVE RELATIONSHIP'

    The former couple got into an explosive confrontation as they came face-to-face following their emotional split on the same Mexican beach they fell in love at two years ago. 

    On an oceanside daybed, Kendall told Joe: “I’m surprised you’re this okay.”

    Joe appeared frustrated and replied: “I thought I was going to be good but I forgot this is the place Kendall and I fell in love. So a few hours in, I almost left. But then I stayed.”

    Kendall then admitted she still loves Joe and came back to the show to “win him back.” 

    She gushed: “It’s difficult for me to not have you as a part of my life. You’re a huge part of my life and it’s hard to not have that. 

    “I’ve tried to move on but it doesn’t feel right. And it’s hard to. The reason we broke up was not because we didn’t love each other, it was because of logistics.” 

    In a confessional, she added: “I still have love for Joe and I hope he has love for me.”

    'I ALWAYS LOSE TO GIRLS LIKE BECCA'

    Tammy, 26, broke down in tears in this week's trailer after a slew of new contestants joined the cast of the ABC show.

    The reality star wept as she told the cameras: "I always lose to girls who look like Becca."

    She was referring to former Bachelorette, Becca Kufrin, dating her man at the time, Thomas.

    As she spoke, the teaser showed a clip of Becca, 31, and Thomas Jacobs, 29, cheering red wine over a romantic dinner.

    Shortly after, the two engaged in a wildly romantic makeout session, throwing the entire season for a loop.

    FANS DEMAND CONTROVERSIAL COUPLE 'PACK THEIR BAGS'

    Bachelor Nation took to social media to rejoice on Tuesday night after Alana Milne and Chris Conran leave the island.

    They both decided to leave paradise after Chris was slammed by Jessenia Cruz and fans compared him and Alana to villains Brendan Morais and Pieper James.

    Fans of the show insisted "they should all be kicked off" the island after Chris kissed Alana and went on a date with her.

    Chris, who previously claimed to be in good standing with Jessenia, ultimately upset her with his decision to pursue Alana.

    Towards the end of the episode, Jessenia confronted Thomas for lying to her "multiple times." "Pack your bags and leave," she told him.

    Amid the drama, one fan tweeted: "Okay I need this same energy for Brendan and Piper as there is for Chris and Alana… BOTH couples need to be kicked the f off the beach."

    Another wrote: "Why was no one else this annoyed at Brendan and Pieper when they did the same exact thing as Chris and whatever her name is???"

    TOGETHER AFTER PARADISE?

    After getting voted off the beach by their cast mates, Chris and Alana have also been at the center of drama for reasons similar to Pieper and Brendan.

    The pair were told to leave the show by the fellow BIP stars due to being there for "the wrong reasons."

    Following their emotional departure, Alana has hinted she has continued her romance with Chris and even called him "a really big support system" since their time on the show came to an end.

    The brunette beauty also revealed Chris has taken her "on a bunch of dates" in recent weeks.

    TAMMY'S BIRTHDAY MELTDOWN

    In a sneak peak from tonight's episode, Tammy is seen telling the man she wants to date, Thomas, that: "No matter what happened last night, it doesn't change how I feel about you."

    She then tells him in the clip, referring to his date with Becca Kufrin, "I really like you a lot, and I feel like you are a great fit in my life, and you're my best friend." 

    However, Thomas came back with the burn: "I don't want to steer you on in any way, because that's not who we are. I had feelings for someone else last night, and I didn't feel guilty about it." 

    In a confessional, she sobbed: "I gave him everything! And it's on my birthday! That's even worse!"

    'THE LEVEL OF DISRESPECT'

    As their controversial episode aired last week, Brendan and Pieper thought they would be cheeky but jumping ahead of the drama – which proved to be a massive mistake that cost them both.

    The aspiring model posted a sultry shot of himself in the pool, with the caption: "Here for the wrong reasons", followed by a smirking face emoji.

    At the same exact time, Pieper also uploaded pictures of herself posing in a white crop top and black trousers.

    She wrote the caption: "All's fair in love and war", but later deleted the words.

    Many fans were disgusted by their attitude, and one viewer of the show commented: "The level of disrespect. I can’t."

    TOO LATE TO SAY SORRY?

    Trying to repair the damage done and get back in good graces with Bachelor Nation, Brendan later uploaded an apology for his behavior to his Instagram Stories.

    He told his remaining followers: "After taking time to process the events that unfolded over the past few days, I have realized I was wrong on so many different levels.

    "First of all I removed my last post from my feed. I posted it before the episode aired and had no idea the magnitude of hurt that I caused."

    He explained: "My approach to many things in life is sarcasm. In this instance with regard to my post, I was completely insensitive."

    Continuing his lengthy statement, he directed his words to his co-star and said: "Most importantly I apologize to you Natasha. I hurt you. I am deeply sorry for doing so.

    "I understand that the damage is already done and all I can do going forward is acknowledge the error of my ways.

    "For those of you that felt my actions triggered certain feelings and emotions I am truly sorry."

    FALLOUT IN PARADISE

    In the wake of the fallout, Natasha has called Brendan a "liar" and a "con artist" on Monday's episode of Bachelor In Paradise after he downplayed his relationship with Pieper.

    Rumors had surfaced in June that Brendan, 31, and Pieper, 23, were dating, but he denied it to Natasha, 33.

    Natasha was feeling hopeful about her relationship with Brendan, but that vanished with the late arrival of his girlfriend Pieper.

    Following Pieper and Brendan's date, Natasha took the late arrival to one side to ask once and for all whether they were an official item.

    Pieper revealed that she and Brendan met two months prior to Paradise, which contradicted Brendan's claims they only known each other for a month, and had hung out right before he flew to the island.

    Natasha then accused them of concocting a plan for Brendan to meet someone and lie until Pieper arrived.

    UN-INFLUENTIAL

    Following last week's episode that saw Brendan get into a dramatic love triangle with Natasha and "secret girlfriend" Pieper, the reality star lost over 100,000 Instagram followers.

    Before the episode aired, the TV personality had 365,000 followers on Instagram, according to analytics website Social Blade, but now has 250,000 – meaning a total loss of 100,000.

    The number continues to drop by the day.

    While Pieper had 88,000 followers at the start of the show, but has gone down to under 77,000 followers at the time of writing this article.
