Uh oh. Demi Burnett’s girlfriend, Kristian Haggerty, made an appearance during the Tuesday, August 20, episode of Bachelor in Paradise. So, how will this affect Demi’s relationship with Derek Peth? Buckle up, folks!

“So, I did meet a guy, Derek, and he is amazing. I really did give him a lot of me emotionally, physically,” the 24-year-old told Kristian. “It’s been really tough. I have been really conflicted about all of it. I have been having a really, really hard time trying to figure out what I want. I have been really f–king confused about it. I have been so emotional. I have been all over the place.”

Kristian made it clear that she came to Mexico to be with Demi, and it seems like the feeling is mutual. “You just come to the forefront of my mind,” Demi said. “The second I saw you, it’s you. It’s always been you. I want to be with you.”

Demi then took Derek, 32, aside to chat with him about their relationship status. “So, I think that you are super, super amazing,” she said. “I think you’re the best dude on this beach, hands down. I think that I am so lucky to have met you, and I am really, really glad that you were here. I know you probably maybe have felt me not there, being a little off, and I have talked to you about how I have been having this confusion. She is here now, and I wanted her here, so I could get some clarity, and whenever I saw her, I knew it was her. That is just where my heart is. I am going to pursue a relationship with her here. I know that that is not going to fun for you to see.”

The stud was happy for Demi but didn’t understand how everything changed in just a few days. “I am glad you are moving toward what is making you happier,” he said. “It’s just so hard — to go from kissing you to this, I don’t know how I feel. I always get hurt. I want you to know I am not blaming you. I am just in the same situation as always — someone picks someone else over me.” It was a very intense conversation, but they ended things on a positive note.

It’s no secret that Demi still has feelings for Kristian since she frequently brought her up in several conversations. “I know that I love this girl. I’m just so happy that I found her,” Demi gushed in the promo for the new season. “I can definitely picture being with her for the rest of my life.”

Demi came to Paradise to help sort out her feelings for her lady back home. “It’s this constant, like, indecisiveness in me and I just feel like the only way for me to truly know what I want and how I want to love and who I want to love is if I try out Paradise,” she explained. “Maybe Paradise is what it’s going to take for me to figure it out.”

Demi was introduced to Kristian through Catherine Agro, who was a contestant with Demi on Colton Underwood’s season. Catherine and Kristian are longtime friends and roomies.

However, the reality starlet felt a connection with Derek, and it seemed like the two were in a good spot. Demi was nervous to tell Derek that she was queer and previously in a relationship with a girl, but he had no problem with her sexual preference.

“I have kind of been seeing someone, of course, plot twist — it happens to be a woman,” Demi explained to Hannah Brown in the first episode of the season. “It’s not something that I need to label so I feel like I don’t have to proclaim, ‘I am gay, I am straight, I am bisexual, I am this.’ I like who I like. It doesn’t matter who or what you are, it’s the person.”

But Derek was still smitten with the spunky contestant. “Demi — the second she smiled at me, I said, ‘I am in trouble here.’ In the best way. I really like her a lot,” Derek revealed. Demi also agreed that their relationship was very easy and natural.

Ultimately, Demi knows that she is going to have to break someone’s heart. “He is an ideal partner for life. The connection is definitely there, but I just feel guilty that there is a woman that I am still thinking about,” she said. “I wouldn’t want to lose anyone, but one of them deserves to have all of me.”

She added, “Sometimes, I want to make out with him and sometimes, I don’t want him to touch me. I have got Derek in front of me. It feels nice to be around him, but I don’t have Kristian around me. I don’t have her, but would I be thinking about Derek in the back of my mind? I don’t know. One of my options is not here, and that is where it gets a little difficult for me.”

Hannah even came to Paradise to talk to her bestie about her issues. “They are both so good for me,” she admitted about her two suitors. “I don’t know what to do. I don’t know what I want. I am very conflicted.”

Well, it seems like Demi had to follow her heart!
