Who is ‘Big Brother 21’ star Kathryn Dunn?

Known for her catchphrase, “Are you b*****s conspiring against me?” Dunn was a fan-favorite from her season. Viewers were introduced to her when she began a relationship with eventual winner Jackson Michie in the first few days of the competition.

He later moved on to his alliance member, Holly Allen, while the digital marketing executive ended up on the block during the first eviction. During Week 5, Michie told his number one ally, Jack Matthews, about a pre-existing relationship between Allen and the Texas-native.

Matthews exposed their secret to the rest of his alliance, which turned Dunn into a target for Tommy Bracco. The following week, she aligned with Cliff Hogg, Nicole Anthony, and Jessica Milagros to form Cliff’s Angels, and Milagros won Head of Household.

She nominated Matthews and Michie for eviction, won the Power of Veto, ensuring her nominations would stay the same, and the fitness trainer became the first member of the Jury.

Cliff’s Angels were sitting pretty until Bracco won HOH the following week and effectively evicted the 29-year-old.

Who is David Barta?

The former Mr. California from Burbank was a medical student when he appeared on the third season of Fox’s reality television dating program, Paradise Hotel.

Hosted by Kristin Cavallari, the show revolves around singles who live in a hotel together as couples. Every week a new female or male contestant enters, and there’s a ceremony where alternating singles choose their partner for the week.

The odd person out goes home and the couples compete to be the last ones standing. Then, they face off and choose to keep some of the money to themselves or share the $250,000 grand prize with their partner.

Barta and model Kendall G picked each other from the first day and had an undeniable connection. Everyone in the hotel could feel it as well and voted them off in third place, finishing behind Carlos Garcia and Kaitlin Reagan and winners Bobby Ray and Tatum Smith.

Is ‘BB21’ Kathryn Dunn dating ‘Paradise Hotel’ David Barta?

After Paradise Hotel wrapped, Barta and Kendall posted pictures and videos of each other on their social media accounts often. However, after about a month, the couple called it quits.

Barta initially revealed they separated because Kendall is five years older and focused on a career while he’s still figuring things out. However, he later took to Instagram Live and accused Kendall of using him and the show to boost her profile as a model.

The two no longer follow each other on any social media platform. Dunn jokingly expressed interest in former Big Brother contestant Brett Robinson during her time on the show.

However, he’s currently dating pageant beauty, Madison McKeown. Therefore, the digital marketing executive is seemingly single and has been spending a lot of time with Barta, including a Temptation Island premiere party, and they went to Disneyland together.

Barta’s Paradise Hotel co-star Brittany Campbell commented on a photo of the two together, writing, “Woah, posting it to the gram. Get it, David,” and included a winky emoji. Dunn responded, saying, “he already got it,” and Barta joined in the conversation, commenting with the bashful monkey emojis.

While the two haven’t publicly commented on the status of their relationship, it’s clear something is going on between them.
