[Warning: Spoilers ahead]
Let the drama begin! On August 5, Season 6 of Bachelor in Paradise kicked off and fans were privy to the relationship love trifecta happening between Blake Horstmann and a slew of other women. Viewers watched his connection grow with Hannah G., so it was very surprising when he asked Tayshia out on a date. Say what?!
Following Blake’s seemingly perfect date night with Tayshia, all hell starts to break loose when Caelynn arrives to the island. The two had a fling prior to the show, which he urges the Bachelor star to keep quiet about. However, Caelynn does not stay tight-lipped about her past romance. And, cue Blake’s sinking romance ship.
So, who does Caelynn end up with on Bachelor in Paradise?
To recap, more information about Blake’s past hookups came to light. Caelynn revealed that fellow Bachelor Nation member Colton Underwood initially set the pair up and the two had sex during the Stagecoach Music Festival. Apparently, Blake had an additional festival rendezvous in April. It was revealed that he also slept with fellow Bachelor star Kristina.
"Everywhere I look everyone's talking about how great Blake is, how cute Blake is, how sweet Blake is," Caelynn said. "And I'm like, 'If you only knew.'" Heartbroken, the reality star was ghosted by her love interest.
When Kristina joins the group on the Mexican getaway, she initially sets her sights on her past flame, Blake. Scoring the second date card, she asks him out. However, Kristina is not looking to rekindle their relationship. "Today I'm going to make Blake my bitch," she told cameras, adding that she knows about Blake and Caelynn.
So, with Caelynn turned off by Blake’s womanizing ways, many wonder who she will connect with this season. According to E! News, Caelynn gets together with Dean Unglert and the two are currently dating. An insider told People, “[They] really hit it off.” Though the two connected on the show, Dean allegedly “got cold feet and left.” However, the source added: “He got home and realized he really had feelings for Caelynn, so went back to Paradise for a second chance."
Capitalizing on their summer romance, the pair took a trip to Venice, Italy in July. "Things have been going much better between them since they left Mexico together," a source told the outlet. Dean’s new relationship with fellow reality star Caelynn comes as a shock to fans after the ABC star insisted all Bachelor Nation romances were fake.
"None of these Bachelor relationships are real, not a single one of them," he told Access Hollywood in January. Dean was previously caught in a love-triangle with Kristina and Danielle on last season of Paradise and was painted as a “playboy.”
"Maybe you've got some marriages and some kids and those ones are real, but every one of them's fake and contrived and I'm not into that," he continued. Adding, "Granted, there are some that are real, like those ones I guess, but boyfriend-girlfriend relationships, every single one of them is fake.” While he may have sworn off future Bachelor relationships, it looks like he may have gone back on his word.
