Caelynn Miller-Keyes and Dean Unglert had a rocky road to finding love with one another on Bachelor in Paradise, but they confirmed during the season six reunion show on Sept. 17 that they’re making it work! All season long, Dean has been mocked for living in his van, and even Caelynn herself had a thing or two to say about it on the show. However, now that she’s in a relationship with Dean, she’s admittedly into it! “I’m surprised but I actually love it!” Caelynn dished.
Of course, the reunion show meant that Caelynn also had to confront Connor Saeli, who she briefly dated after Dean broke up with her on BIP. She ended the relationship with Connor when Dean returned to Mexico to win her back. “Connor was the one I was waiting to meet, and I was trying to convince myself, but my heart was a little bit with Dean,” Caelynn explained. “I went back and forth, but Dean and I had an immediate, crazy connection, and I would have regretted not taking that risk.”
Connor admitted that going through his breakup with Caelynn was “tough,” as he wanted to meet her on the show, too. “We definitely did hit it off right away,” Connor said. “It was tough hearing about Dean having left her and hurting her. When Dean did come back, it was so confusing to me why she did leave with him because I had no reason to believe she would.”
Caelynn apologized for putting Connor through it, but added, “It was just a step that I needed. It was the reassurance that I needed to leave with him. I’m very happy I did.” Don’t worry, though — Connor’s happy, too! He’s currently dating Whitney Fransway, who he met at Chris Randone and Krystal Nielson’s wedding in Mexico. Connor left Paradise when he thought Whitney wasn’t going to show up, and she happened to arrive RIGHT after he departed.
So, she set off to his hotel room to reveal that she wanted to be with him, too, and they’ve been together ever since. “Things are going really well with Whitney,” Connor confirmed. “We’ve seen each other a bunch since then, so it’s going really well!
