Every rose has its thorn. And every season of Bachelor in Paradise has its shocking split. 

Tonight kicks off a brand-new season of ABC's juiciest summer hit where contestants from The Bachelor and The Bachelorette franchise head to Mexico for a second chance at love.

While fans know that this season will feature the romantic proposal of Jared Haibon and Ashley "I" Iaconetti, something tells us not every reality star will walk away with a happily ever after.

Lucky for viewers at home, that will likely mean drama, plot twists and maybe even a few tears. Yes, we see you needing a tissue in that season trailer.

Before Chris Harrison welcomes a fresh new cast to Mexico tonight, we wanted to look back at some of the show's most famous couples that ended things on a wild note.

For some like Taylor Nolan and Derek Peth, they were able to avoid any and all tabloid scandals when they announced their breakup.

But for others like Robby Hayes and Amanda Stanton, some valuable lessons were shared for any and all Americans entering or exiting a relationship: Hint, you really don't need to post your exes texts on Twitter. Don't worry, Bachelor Nation, Amanda is living her best life with a brand-new guy outside of the franchise.

With the season just hours away, dust up on your Bachelor in Paradise knowledge by taking a look back at other wild breakups from the show that had everyone talking in our gallery below.
