They’ve certainly had their fair share of drama on Bachelor In Paradise.
But now their time in Paradise is drawing to a close it begs the question: Could Jarrod ‘Pot Plant’ Woodgate be the answer to Keira Maguire’s “happily ever after” after her difficult cult upbringing?
“I’m very confident and very excited to continue a life with Keira outside of Paradise,” a giddy red-faced Jarrod said on Sunday night’s penultimate episode.
Keira, clearly also besotted with Jarrod, admitted if it didn’t work out with him the “heartbreak would be too much to bear.” Awww.

It seems through all the drama, pain and Jarrod’s many shades of red there is light at the end of the tunnel for Keira.
However, life hasn’t always been sunshine and rainbows for the 31-year-old.
She was born into a polygamist cult created by her biological father, Alistah Laishkochav, in the 1970s and claimed in a previous interview on The Project she didn’t know her mum was until she was five-years-old.
“It sounds strange, but it just is what it is. I didn’t even have birthdays,” she admitted in the interview back in 2016. “I think I had my first birthday when I was seven. For other people, it might be really sad. But it’s not, because it’s my story.”
Woman’s Day broke the story in 2016 revealing Keira was raised in a polygamist cult.
The publication also claimed the star grew up with 63 siblings and nine mothers and had limited contact with the outside world. Laishkochav allegedly “believed he was Jesus” and married nine women in 1974.
Keira was born in Bells Beach, Victoria, but escaped the cult with her mother when she was five.
Well, here’s to hoping Jarrod can bring Keira the happily ever after she absolutely deserves.
Tune in tomorrow night to Channel Ten for the finale of Bachelor In Paradise at 7.30pm.
