From the moment Taylor Nolan and Derek Peth met on Bachelor In Paradise, it seemed like love at first sight as the two barely left each other’s side for a single moment in Mexico. But over the course of the past year, the two have continued to live their lives on opposite coasts — prompting many to wonder if Taylor and Derek are still together.
And from the looks of it, the match made in Paradise may not be doing as hot these days! A loyal Bachelor fan took to reddit to say that he/she saw Tay partying in Las Vegas this weekend — sans her engagement ring. To make matters even messier, she was also apparently flirting with one of the redditor’s guy friends.”
“It was weird,” the redditor explained. “On Friday night she gave her number to a guy friend of mine and then came to our table at the club last night. None of us let on that we knew she was on the show and she never mentioned it. She and her friends (they were there for Derek’s sister’s bachelorette party) sat at our table all night last night and then when we were going to the Zedd show, she blew us all off and got friendly with a guy who had a table inside. She never once mentioned she was engaged either night we saw her.”
Wait, hold the phone — we know what you're thinking: She was with Derek’s sister, but didn’t wear her ring?! As other redditors (mostly likely, accurately) deduced Tay and her future sister-in-law were probably just flirting with dudes so they could tables at the clubs in Vegas without paying. Which, you know — definitely isn’t a crime! Neither is giving your number out to new pals, for the record!
In fact, just last month, Life & Style caught up with Tay, and she reassured us that things were going well with her man. “We just did an episode on my podcast, Let’s Talk About It, about our emotional piggybank as, like, a relationship check-in and just a little bit of relationship maintenance, you know? It’s going well,” she gushed. “It’s weird, because there are definitely times where he is my best friend, he is my lover, and I totally see this whole future with him — then there are other times where I’m like, ‘I could punch you, but, like, a love punch.’ But honestly, he really is like my best friend and I’m really happy to be experiencing these different things with him and seeing how we handle the challenges that come up in our relationship has been the fun, magical, messy part of the relationship. It will be coming up on a year here soon since we met in June, so that’s just wild to think about. So much as happened in the scheme of our relationship so far.”
While the duo are currently going through the motions for the wedding of Derek’s sister Rachel (who — fun fact — is the one who submitted Derek to be on The Bachelorette in the first place!), Tay and Derek are definitely not in a rush to follow Rachel and her husband-to-be down the aisle. She gushed to Life & Style, “[We have] not talked about wedding plans. Just kind of taking the next steps towards moving in with each other and again, just getting to know each other in real life — like how we handle things in real life.”
