Third time's the charm! Even though Dean Unglert got his heart broken by Rachel Lindsay during Season 13 of The Bachelorette — and then found himself caught in the middle of a love triangle with Kristina Schulman and Danielle Lombard during Season 4 of Bachelor in Paradise — he still got a third chance at love when he signed up to star on The Bachelor Winter Games and it looks like he immediately hit it off with co-star Lesley Murphy during the premiere of the show on Feb. 13! Of course, we already knew that thanks to some inadvertant spoilers!
Are Dean and Lesley still dating?
Right away on the premiere, Dean seemed drawn to Lesley. The pair was hoping to get a date card, and even though they didn't, they made the most of their second night together. Some light-hearted boob jokes lead Lesley to consider telling Dean her dark secret... that she had a doucle mastectomy earlier this year. They finally acted on their feelings and had a steamy makeout sesh!
Although there's obvious chemistry right off the bat, we didn't have to wait until the premiere to know that Lesley and Dean were coupled up. Back in January, multiple sources confirmed that they were dating after the couple was spotted together in Park City, UT — which basically spoiled the show because now we already know they end up together at the end.
Lesley, 30, and Dean, 26, were seen at the Chase Sapphire on Main party during the Sundance Film Festival on Friday, Jan. 19, sources revealed to Us Weekly. “They were holding hands walking through the party and looked very much like a couple,” an eyewitness said, and added that the pair stood by themselves and were “talking only to each other.”
Bachelor Nation was first introduced to Lesley on Season 17 of The Bachelor where she competed for Sean Lowe's heart — and ultimately lost to Catherine Giudici. She went on to become a travel blogger and she returned to the franchise to star on Bachelor Winter Games, which is where she met Dean and sparked up a romance with him. But since the show isn't set to air until February 13, the couple was supposed to stay out of the public eye.
"[Dean and Lesley] weren't supposed to be in public together yet. [The] pair is worried about being busted at Sundance," an insider revealed to E! News. But even though they have to keep their relationship under wraps, things are still going well between them.
"Dean is really happy with Lesley. They are both very goofy and have a lot of fun together," the source continued. "Things are pretty serious and they are exclusive as of now. They have been spending a lot of time together since the show ended filming."
