Dean UnglertAnd Caelynn Miller-KeyesA nickname for them is BachelorTheir success story was not a happy ending, but their relationship was rocky.
Unglert was returned to Bachelor in ParadiseHe returned to season 6 in 2019 after finding himself in the middle a complicated love triangle from season 5. During his second stint on the beach, he met Miller-Keyes, who was the one wrapped up in that summer’s drama.
“A long time ago, when we first started dating, there were things where I was, like, disappointed about or just upset to hear, you know what I mean, about Caelynn’s dating history,” Unglert admitted to the former Miss North Carolina on his “Help! I Suck at Dating” podcast in November 2020. “And I was like, ‘Well, dude, if you were to flip it around and put me in the same position that I’m putting her in, I would look 20 times worse.’”
He added, “So I’m not gonna sit here and be a hypocrite and be upset about something that she might or might not have done while I have done the same thing, if not worse, 10 times over.”
Season 6 BiPFans learned that Miller-Keyes was in a relationship with Blake HorstmannBefore filming began, Stagecoach was home to him. He was called out by her, and she revealed that he had slept with Kristina Schulman, their costar, at the music festival. Horstmann then tried to clear his record by sharing his text with Miller-Keyes.
Unglert publicly defended Miller Keyes during the airing of the show.
“I don’t think that you should ever really hold your significant other accountable for the things that they did before they knew the person that they’re dating,” he said on the podcast. “You could spend time thinking about it and dwelling on it, but you’re just gonna make yourself angry for literally no reason at all because it’s like, what are you supposed to do about someone doing things before they ever possibly knew you?”
Miller-Keyes agreed, “It’s like, ‘That was before me, I don’t care, I don’t need to know’ kind of thing.”
Unglert and Miller Keyes parted ways after a turbulent summer. It hasn’t been entirely smooth sailing for the pair, however.
