Astrid Loch and Kevin Wendt seemed like the most solid couple on Bachelor in Paradise, so one saw it coming when he broke up with her right before the Fantasy Suite dates — especially Astrid. Making matters worse, she had to relive the breakup when Monday night’s episode aired. At least she had support from viewers who tweeted about Astrid and Kevin’s sudden breakup on Bachelor in Paradise. Everyone was so thrown off by this. But still, just imagine being Astrid. Sure, it’s great she has received a lot of love from the fans, but that’s pretty much a consolation prize.
Why couldn’t these two just continue dating outside of the show? Why does it have to be engagement or nothing? This isn’t The Bachelor or The Bachelorette, that high level of pressure is not there for every single Bachelor in Paradise couple. Most likely because there are so many relationships and not just one left standing at the end.
The viewers just could not handle the unexpected split. This can’t be the end of Astrid and Kevin, right? Hopefully they managed to get back together in real life, but only if Kevin genuinely made things right and put in 100 percent of himself, instead of the 80 percent he told Astrid he was giving her during the most recent episode.
Unfortunately, their current status is still unknown to the fandom, but those fans really did have a lot to say about the split.
Many fans wondered, “If Astrid and Kevin can break up out of nowhere, then what can happen to my own relationship?”
There were so many “relationships” on Bachelor in Paradise, why did it have to be Kevin and Astrid who broke up? Almost any other couple breaking up wouldn’t have been nearly as upsetting to the fans.
The Fantasy Suite Date would given Astrid and Kevin some much-needed private time away from the cameras. They could have talked things through and left BIP as a unit, instead of separating and breaking everyone’s heart in the process.
Dating on a reality TV show does seem pretty stressful, so maybe the cameras and lack of true alone time was just too much to handle and these two are actually happily dating in real life now.
No. One. Saw. This. Coming. How did he go from talking about his love for Astrid to just ending it immediately after? They can just date, no proposal necessary.
Did anyone else watch that breakup scene multiple times? Why did they even break up? This whole thing is just so confusing for the viewers, so just imagine how confusing it is for Astrid and Kevin themselves.
Oh my god. How did this happen? Bachelor Nation was really not ready for this one and it’s just tough to get over.
This is not real, is it? It just can’t be.
Kevin upset the fandom (and Astrid, of course) with this pre-Fantasy Suite breakup. Where did this come from!?
Everyone was rooting for Astrid and Kevin to last. First Kendall and Joe, and then Astrid and Kevin? Who are the fans going to ship now?
Venmo John and Olivia made the right move when they decided to just date on their own, instead of going through with the Fantasy Suite date on the show. They left Bachelor in Paradise together, hand in hand and smiling. Why couldn’t Kevin and Astrid do the same thing?
This really does need to be addressed during the reunion show. There are so many unanswered questions here. How on earth did this happen? What was Kevin thinking?
This was just not necessary. They could have just taken their time in real life to figure themselves out.
Most viewers “sided” with Astrid in response to the breakup, but watching that scene, it’s clear that Astrid was not the only one who was upset.
This cannot be the end of Astrid and Kevin’s relationship. Or at least that’s what a lot of the viewers are hoping for.
