“My man, I love you,” James told Aaron in front of the other guys. “I don’t know where you’re at with Tia—we came in together, we gotta ride out together.”
It took Aaron a moment to agree, but he was quickly on the same page and hurriedly pulled Tia aside. “I have to do this fast,” Aaron told her. “I actually care about you, but James is waiting right now, so we’re about to bounce back to SD.”
This led a stunned Tia to reply, “Are you s–tting me right now?” After Aaron smiled and said he needed to get her phone number, Tia quipped with a laugh, “I hate you. I hate him.”
Everyone watched as James hilariously carried Aaron on his shoulders as they made their way to the vehicle. “I came in here looking for a big love story, and I just found a best friend, and that’s big facts,” James told the camera. “Maybe I did find love in Paradise with an unexpected person with Aaron, but that’s the way the cookie crumbled.”
Other couples had split prior to James and Aaron’s big exit, including Mykenna Dorn ending things with Ed Waisbrot, and Becca Kufrin breaking Thomas Jacobs‘ heart.
