—and the breakdowns, hookups, and tacky tan lines are only five days away.That also means we have five more days of having those "Almost Paradise" promos stuck in our head.So to get you ready, I met up with contestants Graham Bunn, 35 (, Season 9 with Desiree), for a lunch date fresh off the boat from the rustic Papaya Playa Resort in Tulum, Mexico.
While we were dining at The Farm of Beverly Hills, don't think for one second that the three of us didn't joke about Robert and Graham marrying each other and Graham having to change his name to Graham Graham.Graham Bunn: I feel really fortunate that I've had two long-term, really amazing relationships.Obviously I've had success in dating, but I'm really set on getting married only once.Traveling for a living and work has never really given me a stable background to take that next step, but I'm finally in that place now.It just took me a little longer than everybody else.
And with a face like this, it takes people a little longer to warm up to.
[Robert Graham: I had one really long-term relationship when I got out of college, and we were living together, but just like Graham, I was all over the place.
That's not really an excuse, but I wasn't ready to get married. So the next person I'm with is going to be the person I'm going to marry; I just haven't been able to find that person or feel that way yet. It's more just pressure I've put on myself, but I'm so thankful they've asked me to even be part of these opportunities.
She wanted to take the next step, but I just wasn't there yet, so we ended up breaking up. I think the way I've conducted myself in the past made them think it would be a good opportunity this time around.] For me, they'd probably say that I'm very considerate. Sometimes that's a hindrance, but I would think the one thing everyone in my life would agree upon is that I'm a very considerate person.] I would love for the person to be very considerate and open and selfless.
Other than that, we're all individuals and we'll be different, but if the person puts others before them and gives back, then I think I'll be good.
Graham: I just don't like when I'm asking girls questions about their life, and they give you detailed answers but never reciprocate and ask about you.
