‘BIP’: Why Dean Unglert and Caelynn Miller-Keyes Might Move Out of the Country Soon
When Dean Unglert and Caelynn Miller-Keyes left Bachelor in Paradise Season 6, the couple moved on to new adventures. The former reality stars traveled to different destinations across the globe. They also lived in a van before quarantining together amid the coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic. Then more recently, the BIP alums have been bombarded with marriage rumors. And now, Unglert has revealed he might be taking another big step with Miller-Keyes if a “certain someone” is re-elected in November.
What happened to Dean Unglert and Caelynn Miller-Keyes after ‘Bachelor in Paradise’?
A year after Unglert and Miller-Keyes ditched Bachelor in Paradise in 2019, the couple returned to the franchise to chat with host Chris Harrison for The Bachelor: The Greatest Seasons — Ever.
“It’s been great,” Miller-Keys said of her relationship with Unglert after Paradise. “We landed in San Diego, started driving the van, and we traveled the world. We’ve climbed volcanos, we’ve hiked … we’ve done a lot.”
Meanwhile, Unglert revealed they have been quarantining in Miller-Keyes’ “cushy apartment in Santa Monica.” Then when Harrison asked whether they were living together, Unglert called his situation with Miller-Keyes a “domestic partnership.”
The Bachelor Nation host then addressed the marriage rumors, noting the black ring on Unglert’s finger. And while Miller-Keyes and Unglert aren’t legally married, they are committed. Unglert said:
In my opinion, I don’t need the title of “husband” to show the world I’m committed to one person. So the fact that I’m wearing the ring is showing just that. I’m committed to Caelynn and only Caelynn … It’s not a traditional marriage or engagement ring. But it’s our little way of telling the world — or the people we’re around — that we’re committed to each other.
Miller-Keyes added, “It’s just nice to know we’re in this strong, committed relationship without having to get the government involved, as Dean likes to say.”
Dean Unglert reveals he might move out of the country with Caelynn Miller-Keyes
In the July 8 episode of the Help! I Suck at Dating podcast alongside co-host Jared Haibon and guest Gabrielle Stone, Unglert subtly shared his potential moving plans with Miller-Keyes.
“Caelynn and I were just talking about moving to Bali,” Unglert said. “But we’ll see if it comes down to it.”
Later, Unglert further explained the decision, noting he made a pact with Miller-Keyes to move out of the U.S if Donald Trump is re-elected in 2020.
“Caelynn and I — not to get all political, not going to share our stances or anything — but if a certain someone gets re-elected in November, we had a handshake agreement to move out of the country,” Unglert said.
In response, Haibon brought up why leaving the country may not be the right solution if you want something to change. He said:
Here’s the thing. I’m not going to say my political affiliation either. But back in 2016, everyone was saying, “If Trump gets elected, I’m moving.” I didn’t like that because I thought, “If you want Trump out, then you have to stay in the country so you can vote him out in 2020.” So I don’t know. Don’t move. I mean, I guess if he wins then he’s out in four years anyway because you can only serve two terms. So I guess it doesn’t really matter.
Of course, most U.S citizens can still do their part and vote if they reside outside of the country. But regardless, Unglert shared he wanted to leave after the 2016 election. And although he wasn’t able to move back then, he has the mean to now.
“I was one of those people back in 2016 that said that exact same thing. I said I was going to move to South Africa,” Unglert said, adding he didn’t realize how expensive or difficult it would be to move to another country. “But now that I have the means and I’m able to do it, I think it’s a lot more realistic.”
Haibon also pointed out Unglert has someone who would move with him. Then Unglert shared Miller-Keyes has been doing some research of her own. But even so, nothing is officially decided at this point.
“I’ll update again in November and I’ll do my part,” Unglert said. “But if what happens is what we don’t want to happen, I think we’re going to take extreme measures and get the hell out of here. But that’s just a bit of an update on mine and Caelynn’s situation.”
