You may have caught a glimpse of her at Chris Randone and Krystal Nielson‘s wedding or saw her partying it up during Rachel Lindsay‘s bachelorette party, but Whitney Fransway is taking center stage on Bachelor in Paradise. The brunette beauty first appeared on Nick Viall‘s season of The Bachelor and still hasn’t found her Mr. Right.
Whitney is an interesting person to add to the mix. She is extremely good friends with Kristina Schulman — they frequently hang out and attended Coachella together this year. However, she’s also pals with Caelynn Miller-Keyes and hung out in her Stagecoach crew in April. Considering Blake Horstmann‘s sexual escapades have already been smeared all over Mexico, it will be interesting to see if Whitney weighs in with any new information. Drama aside, the fitness babe is hitting the beach for love, not tea.
Yes, she looks a bit like fellow Bachelor Nation alum Astrid Loch, but don’t get it twisted, she will have a very different experience in Mexico. Keep reading to see who she hits it off with. Caution: Spoilers for season 6 are below. Do not keep reading if you don’t want to know what happens!
Whitney narrowly misses a love triangle with Connor Saeli and Caelynn. Dean Unglert broke up with the former Miss North Carolina and left Paradise because he didn’t see a future beyond the show and “didn’t want to string her along.” Although she was devastated, she quickly hit it off with Connor after meeting him at Chris and Krystal’s wedding.
We hope you didn’t get too cozy with the thought of Caelynn and Connor living happily ever after because Dean shaves his mustache and comes back to Paradise to see if Caelynn will leave the show with him. She developed a strong connection with the contestant from Hannah Brown‘s season during their short time together but opted to ride shotgun in Dean’s van.
Even though that sucks for Connor, not all hope is lost. He also hit it off with Whitney during the televised wedding and decided to wait patiently until she arrived on the beach. Unfortunately, he got a bit antsy and left before the brunette beauty’s arrival, according to Reality Steve. Whitney was also hoping for a chance at love with Connor and was bummed when he wasn’t there. The Bachelor gods are kind sometimes and they arranged for the two to meet at a hotel in Mexico, where they were able to spend a few days together. According to the gossip outlet, the two are still seeing each other.
There were a lot of twists and turns but that’s one happy ending.
