On Bachelor in Paradise, Dr. Joe Park came just in time to mend Natasha’s wounded heart. The beloved anesthesiologist from Clare Crawley’s season of The Bachelorette hit the beach following Brendan and Pieper’s disaster and subsequent exit from the show. Following a brief talk with Natasha, he promptly asked her out on a one-on-one date, much to the joy of all onlookers.
Dr. Joe’s appearance was greeted with joy by almost the whole cast, who unanimously told the cameras that no one deserved a romantic date more than Natasha since Brendan had played her for a fool. “She needs someone who can keep up with her and stimulate her, and I think Joe is just that,” Becca added, adding that Dr. Joe would be a significant improvement than “little Brendan.” Meanwhile, Riley prayed to the Paradise gods that their relationship would work out. “She is truly deserving of a wonderful time. “Just — just do it for me,” he pleaded. “Just once,” she says. Please! Please!”
At home, fans were just as optimistic. One user tweeted, “Me watching Natasha and Dr. Joe go on a DATE,” accompanied a snap of Queer Eye actor Antony Porowski blissfully crying. “Dr. Joe is EXACTLY who we needed on this beach,” said another.
