Pieper James’ arrived on this week’s ‘Bachelor in Paradise,’ and she and Brendan Morais immediately went on a date.

Now the couple are admitting that they dated before the show.

“She wanted to go on the date with Brendan, didn’t even care to talk to anyone else,” Natasha said in a confessional. “It’s just very fishy and it’s like everything that I feared could be true. Brendan has to explain some things. Why would you start something with someone knowing that you had another person in your heart?”

Natasha has been dating Brendan on the show.

Brendan then pulled Natasha to talk about it. “I didn’t know this was going to happen,” he said. “It’s obviously a coincidence, I suppose. I guess the whole purpose of us being here is to figure out who our person is. As you know, I spent time with Pieper already and we have a certain connection and you and I have a certain connection. Exploring both is something I want to do.”

Pieper also seems to be upset that Brendan has played down their relationship.

“I don’t know why we’re acting like we’ve never met before,” Pieper told him over dinner. “I don’t know what’s been going on or what he’s telling people, but before we got here, it was a budding, progressing relationship. I don’t think I would’ve flown here if I wasn’t sure it was something.”
