Bachelor Nation’s Dean Unglert And Lesley Murphy Are Dating

Last week, Caelynn posted a photo of herself smiling in the streets of Barcelona while sporting a white crop top and multi-colored skirt, and neutral sandals. “Clearly hating my time in Spain,” she captioned the photo. Interestingly enough, Dean posted a photo from Spain the very same day, causing followers of the Bachelor alums’ whereabouts do a collective, “Hmm…” Caelynn didn’t post on the ‘gram from June 1 until July 1, when she returned with a photo of herself holding an iced coffee.

We learn that on Bachelor China there was only ONE kiss the entire season. Can you imagine what life would be like if Arie spared us from his kissing bandit shenanigans? You’ll remember her from that one time she told Juan Pablo off (“I would never want my children having a father like you!”) and the many many times she cried during Bachelor in Paradise.

I know it’s imperative to find someone who chooses us and acknowledges our many layers, who can be open and vulnerable, and most importantly, who is ready. All we need is that same energy reciprocated, and despite how open and loving you attempt to be, people can only meet you as deeply as they’ve met themselves. Don’t be afraid to be the one that loved the most and give everything you had, because you’ve got to find people who love like you do and who are ready. It was a long winter, and I’m excited for a new season???? The Bachelor Winter Games are a lovely way to fill time between seasons of The Bachelor and The Bachelorette.

“Of course she’s beautiful, and if you want to talk about someone who’s kind to everyone, it’s her! It’s kind of annoying when we go places and she literally makes friends with every single person we meet.” Unglert may not have classified his Winter Games story as one of redemption, but according to Murphy, fans will definitely see a different side to him. “She made well sure of that,” Unglert said with a laugh, before addressing whether he found redemption on Winter Games. “And then talk started coming, and I heard more and more about this reputation of Paradise,” she said. “But I’m not one to take on other people’s opinions for my own, and I just wanted to make mine. So you’ll see mine play out on screen.” “I didn’t know much about Dean,” confessed Murphy, who said she didn’t watch him on Bachelor in Paradiseor Rachel Lindsay’s season of The Bachelorette.

‘Bachelor Winter Games’ Star Dean Unglert Seeking Therapy After Split From Lesley Murphy

After those bad experiences, she swore she was retiring from the show…only to magically discover the Winter Games Loophole. Apparently, this is an alternate dimension where the choices you make after one too many margaritas don’t count. Dean (from Rachel’s season and Bachelor in Paradise) gets an intro that feels very “boy band member audition tape.” We’re reminded that he was shady on BiP, but he promises he’s really a “good guy” who just made “questionable decisions.” EligibleGreeks That’s what they ALL say, Dean.

The couple had chemistry right away and although filming is over, their love story, so to speak, has yet to finish playing out on the show. As for how the rest of the cast fared on Winter Games, Murphy, who previously told ET that the show ends with four couples , revealed that Ben Higgins “probably” left disappointed after failing to find love. But there might be good news for Ashley Iaconetti, who spent much of the show’s premiere crying over Kevin. Even though the couple didn’t last, Dean had nothing but nice things to say about Lesley in his ET interview.

Because they’ve done everything short of screaming, “We’re together now!” off a mountain. Growing up as a kid I had a crude but utopian idea of what love is. I always had this idea that no matter what you did, no matter how you act, as long as you’re true to yourself and act in good conscious, your path would lead you to the one person on this planet you’re meant to be with. As I’ve gotten older, I’ve learned that although everyone DESERVES love, it’s not something we’re entitled to. I still have a lot of work to do on myself, a lot to prove to myself, before I’m ready for something like that. Lesley made the news last spring for undergoing a double mastectomy when she learned that she was at high risk for developing breast cancer.

“The truth is, I am falling in love with Lesley,” Dean is seen confessing on the extended trailer for the season. “I hope she feels the same way.” Cut to the two of them smooching in a snowy winter wonderland. “He’s got some growing up to do and there are other guys I want to pursue.”

When asked if his romance might go the distance, Dean revealed to Us Weekly on Jan. 30, “I hope so. Fingers crossed.” He also reportedly said that he’s “incredibly happy” at this point in his life. Of her time on The Bachelor Winter Games, Lesley told Entertainment Tonight, “I had the time of my life. I was there until the very end and you’ll see how it ends… I came off very, very happy.” I mean damn, guys — at least make us work for it a little bit! Make me do some investigative reporting that’s more than just following both of you on social media.

Fans watched the two strike up a romance on night one of the show, which filmed in Manchester, Vermont, in December. ET’s Lauren Zima caught up with the couple in Los Angeles on Tuesday, where they revealed that two months after production ended, they couldn’t be more smitten. As for Lesley, she hasn’t made an appearance on Bachelor in Paradise, and disappeared somewhat from the reality show dating circuit since she competed on Sean Lowe’s season of the show. Now that she took part in Winter Games, it’s possible that she and Dean have officially fallen in love. Maybe this time next year we’ll be celebrating their wedding in front of a live audience while it’s being officiated by Chris Harrison, as all Bachelor weddings seem to be. I just hope that Lesley watched last season of Bachelor in Paradise and knows what she’s getting herself into.

“All we need is that same energy reciprocated, and despite how open and loving you attempt to be, people can only meet you as deeply as they’ve met themselves,” Lesley writes. “Don’t be afraid to be the one that loved the most and give everything you had, because you’ve got to find people who love like you do and who are ready.” Bachelor Nation’s Lesley Murphyis breaking her silence just days after E! News learned The Bachelor Winter Games star had split withDean Unglert.The two met on the set of the ABC reality show spin-off and dated for four months.

This triggered a messy love triangle that resulted in Kristina’s choice to depart, after she felt disrespected by Dean and his indecisive, two-timing ways. The drama continued to extend to After Paradise and beyond, but it appears that Dean has grown from his public mistakes. The moments between Dean and Lesley that made it on screen in the first two hours of Winter Games were sweet and surprisingly candid. Honestly, sometimes we feel like the majority of Bachelor convos are so on the surface that “what’s your favorite flavor of ice cream?” is about the deepest we go in the “emotional” questions department. You can watch an entire season and never really get to know anyone.

But ultimately, he reassured her that he would do his best to open up and promised to fully commit to their relationship — and offered her his rose at the rose ceremony, keeping them both safe and secure for another week. In case you’re not caught up, after initially vying for Rachel Lindsay‘s heart on The Bachelorette, Dean went on to make a name for himself in Paradise last summer, where he was responsible for the season’s longest-running — and perhaps most heart-wrenching — love triangle. “I had a bad experience on Bachelor in Paradise, but I learned a lot over that experience so it was nice to be able to go on with a new perspective and really be able to focus on how to improve and not be as much of a s—thead as I was the first time around,” he stated.

Dean also acknowledged to Entertainment Tonight that he had some work to do on himself before jumping into another relationship. Aside from the time apart, one other thing seems to have played a big factor in the demise of the relationship — Dean wasn’t necessarily ready. Lesley posted an Instagram post with a lengthy caption following the split that alluded to that.
