Kat Dunn and Reality Steve Carbone before meeting each other

Around 2009, blogger Steve “Reality Steve” Carbone began spoiling seasons of The Bachelor and Bachelorette after receiving his first tip that Jason Mesnick would propose to Melissa Rycroft before changing his mind and leaving with the runner-up, Molly Malaney.

After getting sued twice from ABC, Reality Steve has continued to spoil the seasons without interruption because his information does not come from anyone on the cast or crew. The blogger has since expanded, and he interviews contestants from other reality shows, such as Big Brother and Survivor, as well.

Last summer, then 29-year-old Texas-native Kat Dunn competed on Big Brother 21, where she ran into a person she knew from the pageant world, Holly Allen.

After word of their pre-existing relationship spread throughout the house, Kat, who played a floater game, became the number one target and went home two weeks later.

She began a romantic relationship with Nick Maccarone, but they parted ways a few months later as the coronavirus (COVID-19) prevented them from seeing each other.

Soon after they broke up, fans began noticing Reality Steve and Dunn hanging out for his birthday.

Reality Steve Carbone said he is ‘seeing’ Kat Dunn

In a June 2020 Instagram Live with former The Bachelor contestant Ashley Spivey, the blogger admitted he had spent a lot of time with the Big Brother star as they both are located near each other.

Reality Steve noted the two “have a great time together” and said they did hang out for his birthday. However, the blogger claims he doesn’t post pictures with her because he’s “not one of those guys.”

The 45-year-old also insisted that he had nothing to do with her and Maccarone’s breakup. Instead, he claims he first spoke to Dunn shortly before their April 23rd interview and then stayed in contact.

Although the Big Brother 21 star hasn’t explicitly addressed the rumored relationship, she comments flirty messages and emojis on his Instagram Live streams.

After CBS announced a premiere date for the highly anticipated All-Stars season, Dunn dropped her podcast, Conspire Away B*tches! With Kat Dunn. She invited her rumored boyfriend for her first episode, and he interviewed her about her life before Big Brother.

The two briefly touched on their relationship as Dunn introduced him as “Carb Daddy.” They also explained they “haven’t stopped talking since” speaking to each other on the April podcast.

According to Reality Steve, they met up in person after talking for a while, and the “rest is history.” He also admitted she “hooked” him in. Even though the two seem to debate over what classifies as a conspiracy theory, they seem very happy together.
