- Caelynn Miller-Keyes is a contestant on Bachelor in Paradise this season.
- In Tuesday night’s episode, Dean Unglert returns to the show, according to a teaser released by ABC.
- Sources close to the cast say that the pair “really hit it off.”
If you’ve been following Bachelor in Paradise, you know that Caelynn Miller-Keyes has had a rough time so far. There was the fact that she hooked up with Blake Horstmann before the show, only to have him totally blow her off once filming started. And then she hasn’t really clicked with anyone so far in the season. Well, apparently that’s about to change.
In a teaser for Tuesday night’s episode, Dean Unglert comes back (with a questionable mustache), and Caelynn can later be seen crying as Chris Harrison says, “Will he screw things up…again?”
So…rumor has it that Caelynn and Dean actually connected on the show and are now dating IRL. Several sources told People that the two “really hit it off,” but then “Dean got cold feet and left.” That sounds a lot like the last time Dean was in Paradise, when he got caught in a love triangle between Kristina Schulman and Danielle Lombard and left alone.
But apparently Dean realized he’d made a mistake this time and came back for Caelynn. “He got home and realized he really had feelings for Caelynn, so [he] went back to Paradise for a second chance,” the source said.
There’s more: Dean recently slammed Blake on Ben Higgins and Ashley Iaconetti’s Almost Famous podcast after Blake shared texts between himself and Caelynn that led up to their pre-show hookup.
“I’ve got a big issue with the text messages,” he said. “What really crossed the line for me…he took private messages between him and another girl who did not consent to him releasing these text messages and blasted them publicly for his 600,000 followers. Then it got picked up by news outlets, which then gets blasted out to millions more.” Dean also called the whole thing “disgraceful” and accused Blake of “slut-shaming” Caelynn.
AND the two have also shared photos of themselves vacationing in Spain (although they haven’t shared any pics as a couple) last month. “Clearing hating my time in Spain,” Caelynn captioned one photo of herself there, while Dean shared a video of himself swimming in a lake in Spain. “Driving through Spain today and came across this crazy blue lake,” he wrote. “The color reminds me of the lakes in Patagonia.”
Dean also shared a pic of himself at the running of the bulls in Pamplona, Spain.
Just a heads up, you guys: If you’re trying to date on the DL, you’re not being very good at it.
