Bachelor In Paradise: Finale proposal spoiled by subtle clue

Any Bachelor In Paradise fan worth their salt will know that this season has been gearing up for not one but three Commitment Ceremony ‘proposals’ which were teased in the show’s promo way back in March.

If you need a refresher, the juicy clip showed three mystery BIP castmembers each with three promise rings — one a sparkly silver band, another gold and a third plain silver with two black lines.

While the loved up couples’ faces were kept carefully out of frame, the teaser did include a shot of a man’s hand sliding the aforementioned silver ring onto a woman’s finger — a finger painted with bright red nail polish.

With just a single episode to go before Sunday night’s finale, we popped on our detective hats and, if our theory is correct, the identity of the owner of the perfectly polished digits — and supposedly one of the three promise rings — is one Alisha Aitken-Radburn.

Why? Hear us out. Alisha — who took part in Nick ‘Honey Badger’ Cummins’ 2018 season of The Bachelor — has noticeably been sporting red nails in the last few episodes of Paradise.

They were visible as she posed in a navy two-piece outfit in episode nine, while she was building a raft with her beau, Glenn Smith, in episode 11, and again in a promo clip for tonight’s instalment.

Since the show was reportedly shot fairly quickly over just four weeks in November 2019, it’s not a huge stretch to suggest that she kept the same polish in the episodes leading up to the finale.

Whether or not Glenn pops the question during their Commitment Ceremony on Sunday night remains to be seen — however both he and Alisha appear pretty smitten on social media.

“Feel very grateful to have @glennsmith87 by my side through it all, who was honestly so understanding through peaks and troughs,” she gushed on her Instagram on Tuesday.

Over on his account, Glenn shared his excitement for his twin brother and his lady love to meet; “Can’t wait to introduce you to @alisha.aitkenradburn,” he wrote.

Sounds like it’s serious!
