There’s no question, Dean Unglert was the fan favorite from this season of The Bachelorette. Now, he’s headed to Bachelor in Paradise — and sorry ladies, it looks like he was a hot commodity across the border, too.
Daniel Maguire and Vinny Ventiera, who competed on the previous season of the reality dating competition, let it slip that Dean won’t be a candidate for the next Bachelor after Paradise. “It could be someone from Paradise. Remember, last time with Nick… everybody was shocked with that. Could be Dean,” Vinny said of his pick to Life & Style exclusively on FB Live before Daniel coyly added, “Not after Paradise.”
So who does Dean hook up with on Bachelor in Paradise? WARNING: SPOILERS AHEAD!
According to Reality Steve, Dean had the very first date of the season and it was with Kristina Schulman. Fans of the franchise will remember the Russian beauty from Nick Viall’s season of The Bachelor. Well, it looks like Dean and Kristina are a match made in heaven until Danielle Lombard, another contestant from Nick’s season, arrives and a love triangle ensues.
Fast forward to the final rose ceremony, and Kristina has eliminated herself because she wasn’t feeling appreciated. Dean then confesses his love for her and turns down the opportunity to spend the night with Danielle. Fans were quick to share photos of the couple on social media when they were spotted together after filming wrapped. Kristina also defended Dean on Twitter, writing, “Age does not define maturity or life obstacles, much respect.”
Also, eagle-eyed viewers noticed Dean kissing a brunette, who looks just like Kristina, in the trailer for the upcoming season — and we hate to admit it, but they look cute together! And Bachelor Nation is definitely agreeing. “Can I just say Dean and Kristina are made for each other?! Their stories are heartbreaking but they’re still great people,” one fan tweeted.
