Apparent editing goof on 'Bachelor in Paradise' leaves fans perplexed: 'I thought I was seeing things'
The most dramatic episode ever of Bachelor in Paradise — because every episode in the Bachelor franchise seems to be promoted as the most dramatic one ever — had a little less drama for eagle-eyed viewers.
Reality Steve, a blogger known for spoiling the show for years, captured a moment of Tuesday night’s episode on Twitter that showed what appeared to be an editing goof. During the rose ceremony, when one of the women who’d just received a rose walked back to the group, viewers could just see contestant Katie Morton holding her own rose. The problem is that the camera caught that shot just before Katie supposedly received her rose, which was significant because the show was making a big deal about whether Chris Bukowski would give a rose to her at all.
Another classic editing snafu last night. They showed Chris giving the last rose of the ceremony to Katie over Jen. Too bad Katie already had a rose standing next to Caitlin after Blake had given out his. Oops. pic.twitter.com/yWlJMaXVZd

Yahoo Entertainment has reached out to ABC for comment.
However, some members of Bachelor Nation confirmed that they’d caught the blink-and-you’ll-miss-it moment. Others were too entangled in the supposed love triangle of Katie with Chris and Jen Saviano.
I noticed that too. I had to rewind twice because I thought I was seeing things.

Someone pointed out the infamous Game of Thrones moment from last season when a modern coffee cup showed up in a scene.

The conversation became a place to make general complaints about the reality show, which is currently in its sixth season.
They really do a bad job of editing I have noticed

They’ve also consistently showed a preview of Katie reading the fantasy suite date card essentially spoiling their own show...again

Consistency is not their thing. It’s like the “will Chris accept the date” commercial cliff hanger. Cut to him on the date teaser. 🙄

This is the worst season of BIP! They must be having a hard time getting people to participate. They bring in old contestants, people voted off the first night of the bachelor who we don't even know and people like Dean who admit they aren't ready for a relationship.

The episode also featured the residents of “Paradise” attending the wedding of Krystal Nielson and Chris Randone, who fell in love on the show last year.
