New couple alert?! The Bachelor Winter Games is still weeks away, but — spoiler alert! — it appears we have our first official couple. Lesley Murphy, who appeared on Sean Lowes' Season 17 of the ABC reality dating series, and Dean Unglert, who vied for Rachel Lindsay's heart last season were spotted getting cozy on Instagram Stories.
An eagle-eyed redditor pointed out that the duo would actually make a super cute couple. "Lesley seems to enjoy adventure and new experiences, and I think Dean does too. Both of their mom's battled cancer, and with her preventative mastectomy, she and Dean could connect on that level, and she's older and I think Dean needs an older woman. Plus she's freaking gorgeous." Amen!
Lots of pink today as we say Ta-Ta to the TATAS!👋🏻 Cake✔️Pin the boobs on the babe✔️Pick your cup size drinks✔️The best support team ever✔️Ready as I'll ever be for Tuesday's surgery!💞If you didn't see my Insta live today, I'll be doing more either on surgery day or shortly after! #thanksforthemammories
Earlier this year, Lesley, 30, bravely underwent a double mastectomy after she "tested positive for the BRCA 2 gene mutation which greatly increases" her chance of developing breast cancer. Prior to her surgery, Lesley had one final pink, breast-themed celebration. "Lots of pink today as we say Ta-Ta to the TATAS!👋🏻 Cake✔️Pin the boobs on the babe✔️Pick your cup size drinks✔️The best support team ever✔️Ready as I’ll ever be for Tuesday’s surgery!💞If you didn’t see my Insta live today, I’ll be doing more either on surgery day or shortly after! #thanksforthemammories" she captioned the photo of herself.
On this year's season of Bachelor in Paradise, Dean didn't exactly paint himself as Prince Charming. The 26-year-old found himself in the middle of a heated (and often controversial) love triangle between Kristina Schulman and Danielle Lombard. By the end of the show — which aired in September — Dean addressed the situation. "I hope that both of you understand there was never an intention of malice," Dean told both women. "There was never a point where I wanted to do either of you wrong. I understand that that happened. To watch those episodes on Mondays and Tuesdays, it really hurts."
Yikes. Here's to hoping he has more luck with Lesley! TBH, they make a hot AF couple.
The Bachelor Winter Games airs in February 2018.
