‘Bachelor in Paradise’: Are Katie Morton & Chris Bukowski Still Engaged?
The Bachelor in Paradise finale aired last night and Bachelor Nation is still reeling from everything that went down. Producers named a new bachelor, Tayshia Adams and John Paul Jones got back together, and Caelynn Miller-Keyes admitted to loving van life with Dean Unglert. Of course, fans were delighted when the Summer ended with not one but three engagements. But perhaps the most surprising couple to get engaged were Katie Morton and bachelor veteran, Chris Bukowski.
Morton and Bukowski had a bit of a rocky road in paradise, with Bukowski also shared a connection with fan favorite, Jen Saviano. Of course, this was after Morton convinced Bukowski that he should pursue other relationships if he wanted to even though she was secretly hoping for exclusivity. Eventually, Bukowski chose Morton, but the pair still struggled even after deciding they were all in on each other. Lack of communication and being on seemingly different pages caused issues between the couple fairly often.
Trouble in paradise
Ultimately though, the pair decided that they were in love and opted for a Bachelor in Paradise engagement. But things haven’t necessarily been smooth sailing since the pair returned to the real world. This was made evident when Morton showed up to the reunion not wearing her engagement ring. She confessed that though the pair were still engaged, she felt like she wasn’t always getting what she needed in her relationship. Citing that she constantly told and showed Bukowski she loved him, she felt that the love wasn’t always reciprocated.
Bukowski then came out and eventually professed his love to her and ensured Morton that he wanted to make things work if she did. Morton’s ring was then brought back out and she put it on. Things seemed to look up, but Bachelor in Paradise producers later showed the pair fighting in the parking lot. Bukowski said that he felt blindsided by Morton sharing their issues with everyone, particularly since they’d had those conversations before. Morton argued that yes they’d had those conversations before, but nothing had changed.

All the drama made Bachelor in Paradise fans question if the pair were still engaged, let alone still together after the reunion special. Fans of the couple will be pleased to know that Morton and Bukowski are still together and committed to working things out. The pair both took to their respective Instagram pages to share their thoughts and love for another. They also assured their supporters that they were still engaged and working towards forever.

“Love is tough. Love is beautiful. Most importantly love is patient. Sometimes you need a shock to the system to put a fire under your ass. What I felt then I feel even more now. I love you @katieemo and can’t wait to feed you pizza for the rest of our lives,” Bukowski said in a sweet caption sharing an image of himself feeding Morton a slice of pizza. We’re glad that these two seem committed to sticking it out despite the obstacles that get thrown their way. It’s likely very difficult to leave the Bachelor in Paradise bubble, but they seem open to making it work in the real world.
