So Demi has a significant other at home and yet she comes on the show looking for love. Why is that okay? Jed is castigated for it but not only is Demi excused they fly in her girlfriend and are allowing them to stay on together. What is the point of that? It seems very unfair to me.

Exactly... Cheiko… I felt so bad for Derek. Why would he stay at this point?

Yes, Demi says she realizes that it will be hard for Derek to see her with her girlfriend.

I think she should have done a voluntary walkout.

Chieko, this whole thing with Demi was planned before filming started. She only agreed to go on if they would bring out her girlfriend and since this franchise wants to have the first gay couple get engaged, they agreed to it. Derek never stood a chance.

Was Derek in the know about this plan? It's pretty reprehensible on the part of her and the producers if he wasn't in the know.

On the other hand, if he was in the know about it, they might as well just be doing an entirely fictional drama series.

Ugh either way.

No. Derek was not in on this plan.

RS is losing his mind over this because they are making it look like Demi "just realized" how much she missed her girlfriend. Evidently Demi and this girlfriend told everyone way before filming started that both of them were going to be on Paradise. RS said he may start a riot if they make it appear this was "spontaneous" when it had been planned for months.

RS also made a very good point. If any guy had come on the show and said he had a girlfriend at home he couldn't stop thinking about, they would kick him to the curb. But that's not even the case here. Demi was never coming on this show unless she could bring her girlfriend.

Yeah. I like Demi, but this feels wrong in many ways. I feel like if she had a person back home, she should have gone home.

Agreed. It all feels kind of exploitive. BIP is trash TV and it's like they are trying to make it like Dr. Phil or something (which is also trash TV, just a different kind of trash LOL).

I'd be more than happy to see a relationship between two women or two men that forms within this show. That would be awesome. However, manipulatively planning in advance to bring in someone from outside from an existing relationship after internal relationships start to form is exploitative and unfair.

Thanks for the extra information, Lexie. Not a good plan.....and I agree with everyone's comments.

Ditto to what Jimmer said. If this was preplanned, it's just so wrong.
I feel bad for Derek who has to watch this relatonship "develop". And Demi's girlfriend needs to stop saying "like". I can t stand listening to people use this as a filler in every sentence!!
