‘BIP’: Dean Unglert Took Caelynn Miller-Keyes On A Trip To Europe To Apologize For Dumping Her On Her Birthday

Dean Unglert and Caelynn Miller-Keyes got together on the most recent season of Bachelor In Paradise. As soon as Unglert got to Mexico, he showed interest in pursuing the former pageant queen. He asked her to go on a date with him and the two were connected at the hip ever since.

But he ended their budding relationship when he realized he couldn’t give Miller-Keyes what she wanted: a boyfriend. So he left (on her birthday).

Unglert changed his mind and returned to the show a few episodes later to ask Miller-Keyes to leave with him. She agreed and the two are still together today.

Miller-Keyes was recently a guest on former bachelor Nick Viall‘s podcast, The Viall Files, where she spoke about her unconventional, unexpected relationship with Unglert.

“It’s funny because people I think were betting and like ‘they’re gonna be the first to go. Like, they’re never gonna last.’ It’s fair,” she said with a laugh.

She revealed that, after she and Unglert left Paradise together, Unglert surprised her with a trip to Europe.

“So we got off the show and immediately went to Europe together. He bought me a flight to Spain. He was like ‘Sorry I dumped you on your birthday, here’s a flight to Spain!’” she said on the podcast.

But Miller-Keyes says she wasn’t exactly comfortable on the trip with her new beau.

“And that trip in Europe, I was treating our relationship like it was on the beach where he was like ‘I don’t want a relationship. I don’t want anything to do with it. I’m very non-traditional.’ So I was like ‘If I say the wrong thing or do the wrong thing he’s gonna leave.’ So I was like walking on eggshells the whole time I’m in Europe and like ‘What do you want?’ kind of like bowing down to him,” she said.

Viall validated Miller-Keyes’ initial fears. He told the former pageant queen that Unglert has always done things on his terms.

“I didn’t think Dean was going to leave Bachelor In Paradise in a relationship at all. Then when he was the joke was ‘Yeah I’m gonna date Caelynn, but Hey Caelynn, this is what I’m going to do and if you’re OK with it we can date,’ which I guess is honest but also puts you in a really tough spot,” he said.

Thankfully, Miller-Keyes eventually loosened up in her relationship with Unglert. She says, now, that he’s “a really good boyfriend.” But it did take some time.

“At some point in our relationship I was like if I’m actually going to date this guy I need to date him and not be scared of him and be my full self because that’s not fair to either of us. If it ends and I was like ‘I didn’t even try, I was scared of the guy the whole time’ that sucks. So then finally our relationship developed and we became more and more comfortable and now I feel like I can say and do whatever I want,” she said.
