A Bachelor Nation first! Teasers for season 6 of Bachelor in Paradise show Demi Burnett making out with a mystery woman. Her name is Kristian Haggerty and although she’s never appeared on the franchise before, she and the reality babe have a history together. Caution: Season 6 spoilers are down below. Do not keep reading if you don’t want to know how the season ends.
Demi used the show as a platform to come out as bisexual, and they’re now a serious couple. “I know that I love this girl. I’m just so happy that I found her,” the blonde beauty gushes in the promo for the new season. “I can definitely picture being with her for the rest of my life.” Demi was introduced to Kristian through Catherine Agro, who was a contestant with Demi on Colton Underwood‘s season. Kristian and Catherine are longtime pals and roommates. According to Reality Steve, Kristian coming on Paradise was pre-planned by Demi and the show producers. Their relationship is quite special because the duo is one of three couples who get engaged during the finale.
The spunky reality starlet enters a brief romance with Derek Peth at the beginning of the season, but that seemingly fizzles out once Kristian arrives. According to the gossip outlet, the studly contestant decides to leave Paradise on his own after an explosive fight with John Paul Jones.
Demi hinted at a possible twist during an interview with ET back in May. “I’m going to be open-minded and I’m not going to, like, jump into something right away. I think I need to weigh out all my options,” she said at the time. “I think it would be easy to get really involved with someone right away, but then it’s Paradise, and people can come in later, so what if someone comes in later? I just need to keep it open and play the field.” It looks like she ends up falling hard!
Spoiler alert: I’m a queer queen 👸🏼💕🌈 #BachelorInParadise
