As the drama aired, Ivan posted a GIF to his Instagram Story of himself shaking his head on the show, adding the message, “The way @bachelorinparadise is going tonight.”
During the episode, Ivan also retweeted his own tweet from last week that stated, “Whoever gets my first post paradise podcast interview is going to get some gold.” In the retweet, he added the note, “Still can’t wait for this.”
All of this came after viewers had just watched Aaron and Ivan exchanging threats earlier that day as they competed for Chelsea’s affections. Aaron was upset that Ivan and Chelsea kissed after Ivan told the guys that he wouldn’t try to take anyone’s rose, but Ivan adamantly claimed that Chelsea asked him to talk.
Then, Chelsea got wind of the situation and confirmed it was in fact Ivan who had asked her to share one-on-one time, leading a number of cast members to refer to him as a liar.
