Bachelor in Paradise‘s most controversial contestant Joe will snap in a much different way this week as he and Samantha star in a PEOPLE photo shoot!

In an exclusive sneak peek at Sunday’s episode, the Southerner and the woman of his dreams head to a gorgeous rooftop pool and get the A-list treatment when their one-on-one date includes a PEOPLE photo shoot, helmed by the magazine’s Executive Editor Kate Coyne, at the Vidanta Resort in Nuevo Vallarta, Nayarit, Mexico.

“I guess I’m kind of excited, but at the same time I’m very nervous,” Joe admits. “It’s a lot of pressure knowing that 40 million people will see these photos.”

Joe is surely happy to be away from the house after he stirred up drama on last week’s episode by lying to Juelia about his feelings for her and reducing Jonathan to tears.

Now this season’s unexpected villain is shifting gears, getting a full-fledged makeover for some sexy shots with Samantha that could just be the beginning of his journey to love with Samantha.
