Playing EXCLUSIVE: Josh Murray and Amanda Stanton Make Things Official on 'Bachelor in Paradise'

Nick Viall, foiled again! 

On Monday night, Bachelor in Paradise fans saw Nick and Amanda Stanton go on a date, but their connection didn’t last long. Nick’s old arch rival Josh Murray made a surprise appearance, and offered his first date card to none other than Amanda. By episode’s end Josh and Amanda were making out, and based on our exclusive clip above, it seems the two make things official pretty quickly!

In ET's sneak peek, Josh and Amanda are seen taking their tonsil hockey to the brave boundaries of daylight for all to see. “I’m just surprised by how Josh and Amanda kind of chose to approach announcing their relationship to everyone,” Viall tells the cameras. (And seriously, does Josh really make those noises – or are they dubbed in?)

The question is, will Nick confront Josh from here? On Monday, Nick said Josh should’ve asked him before taking Amanda out: “Given our history, I'd think he would've wanted to come to me and just say ‘Hey, I know you went out with Amanda, I want to go out with Amanda too -- man to man I wanted to tell you that.’” Nick did sit down with Josh, who accused Nick of bringing “drama” to the situation. Nick responded, “I've never seen someone so unapologetic for just being an ass for no reason.” In the clip, fellow contestant Daniel is seen urging Nick to go at Josh again!
