Not so much. “He’s a disaster in Paradise!” says Hailey, whose twin sister Emily is also on the show. “It’s super confusing because off camera he’s a great guy. He’s been through a lot.” Alcohol might be his kryptonite, the sisters suggest: “He loves his alcohol and his meat,” Hailey says with a laugh. Adds Emily: “I think he was adding protein to some of that alcohol.” As for their own love stories in Mexico, “We kept our options open,” says Hailey. And the sisters did develop a strong bond with costar Nick Viall. “He helped us get out of our comfort zone,” says Emily. “He was like a brother to us. We love him so much!” ABC’s Bachelor in Paradise premieres Tuesday at 8 p.m. ET, one night after the three-hour finale of The Bachelorette on Monday at 8 p.m. ET.
