What Happened to Amanda Stanton and Josh Murray?

August 24, 2023

Just months after finding un-airconditioned love on the beaches of Paradise, Amanda Stanton and Josh Murray called it quits. PEOPLE confirms that the former Bachelor in Paradise contestants split up and Murray is currently dating Ben Higgins’ runner-up Caila Quinn.

Murray, 32, and Stanton met on the third season of Bachelor in Paradise and got engaged. They then starred together in the fifth season of Marriage Boot Camp: Reality Stars and were on the fence about giving their relationship another chance, but it wasn’t meant to be. They went through intense couples counseling but that didn’t work out, and the two eventually broke up in December 2016.

The breakup was a messy one, with reports of drama all the way up to Murray getting the police involved! Hayley Watts, his personal assistant, claimed that the former BIP contestant wouldn’t return an Audi Q5 he bought her. The assistant claims she asked Stanton to either get a lender for the remainder of the balance or give it back and she refused.

Amanda recently shared her side of the story during an episode of the Viall Files podcast, in which she revealed that her ex-fiance tried to control who she spoke to. She also said he would text her inappropriate things, including about her body and her children. In the podcast, she explains that she’s a “sensible girl who loves her family.” The whole thing is a lot more thorns than roses, but at least we still have this cute pic to look back on!
