‘Bachelor in Paradise’ Couple Mari and Kenny Are Still Together! Inside Their Romance
Bachelor in Paradise couple Mari Pepin-Solis and Kenny Braasch ended up engaged on the show’s season 7 finale, but are they still together in 2022?
Although they were smitten with one another when the season, which aired in August 2021, began, the couple experienced a few bumps along the road. Mari wasn’t ready to commit fully to a relationship with Kenny, as she wanted to keep her options open. As a result, Kenny did the same and was briefly linked to fellow cast members Demi Burnett and Tia Booth but quickly realized Mari was the only one for him. He ultimately popped the question, and they got engaged during the finale.
Since they were ultimately able to conquer the difficulties on the beach in Mexico, fans are wondering if they’re still an item since the final October 2021 episode premiered.

Are Bachelor in Paradise’s Mari and Kenny Still Together?
Kenny and Mari are still together and engaged after meeting on Paradise. Since leaving the reality dating show, their relationship has continued to progress. In January 2022, the couple announced that they officially moved in together.
“@mari_pepin and I have signed the lease on a new apartment here in Chicago,” Kenny wrote via Instagram at the time, with Meri gushing on her own profile, “I can’t wait to keep annoying you, and scaring you, and love you every day, boo!”
Kenny, who is 15 years older than his fiancée, later explained that Mari’s maturity was how he realized she was “The One.”
The way we are together, it feels like she’s my age. It’s hard to explain … To me, you need somebody that you can get along with and live with and be around all the time,” he said on the “Talking It Out” podcast in June 2022. “The weird thing is, we don’t really fight. Previously, I always felt like a relationship just added more stress to my life and that’s why I didn’t want to be in one. But with Mari, there is no stress … We go out all the time, we see shows, we go to dinner — I never did any of that. I was always a homebody a lot prior. It just expanded and enhanced my life.”
Are Bachelor in Paradise’s Mari and Kenny Married?
The pair aren’t married — yet! They have been making lots of plans to become husband and wife and will be having two weddings.
They will say “I do” during an intimate destination wedding in Puerto Rico, where Mari lived until she was a teenager. The Bachelor Nation couple revealed that they are also planning to host a second wedding in Chicago to celebrate with more of their friends.
