- John Paul Jones shared that he's moving to Los Angeles to pursue an acting career.
- He's also moving there to be closer to his girlfriend, fellow Bachelor in Paradise alum Tayshia Adams.
As anyone who has been paying attention will know, Bachelor alums have been moving up in the (celebrity) world: Wells Adams got engaged to Sarah Hyland, Tyler Cameron dated Gigi Hadid, and Mike Johnson was linked to Demi Lovato.

I honestly love this for him. Keeping my fingers crossed that he makes it back on TV, cause if he gives us more moments like this, I will CERTAINLY tune in:
