‘BIP’: It Looks Like Dean Unglert Is Influencing Caelynn Miller-Keyes’ Instagram Stories

We’ve seen Dean Unglert on multiple seasons of Bachelor in Paradise now, but the last season seemingly showed him more ready for commitment than ever before. As soon as he met Caelynn Miller-Keyes on the beaches of Mexico, the two connected instantly and seemed to be there for each other for the long haul. And while Unglert had his doubts and left Paradise at one point, he returned after realizing that he wanted to give his relationship with Miller-Keyes a fighting chance.

Today, the two are still together and doing better than ever. And it looks like Unglert’s influence is rubbing off on Miller-Keyes, especially when it comes to her Instagram Stories. Here’s what she posted.

It seems opposites really do attract, as Unglert and Miller-Keyes’ lifestyles are nothing alike. Miller-Keyes arrived on Colton Underwood’s season of The Bachelor as a well-known pageant girl while Unglert is currently jobless and living out of a van. As Heavy says Unglert told Entertainment Tonight when he first got his van, “I’m just, like, trying to travel the country and see what happens. I live in a van now. I’m planning on [traveling] all across the continental U.S. and then maybe up into Canada as well.”

The publication notes it was Free Solo, a documentary about rock climber Alex Honnold, that first inspired Unglert to live a more adventurous life. And while he adores his current situation, it was one of the reasons he left Paradise without Miller-Keyes by his side at first, as he never expected the van life would work with a romantic companion.

Caelynn Miller-Keyes has gotten in touch with her adventurous side

Despite her pageantry past, it seems Miller-Keyes is loving living in Unglert’s van. During an interview with Access, she said she’s enjoying getting in touch with this side of herself that she’s never gotten to fully explore before. “I’m a pageant girl … but the Miller side of my family … they’re very adventurous, they’re hiking, they live in, like, Airstreams, you know? And so, I’m kind of embracing that side of myself that I never have before, and it’s been great,” she said.

Not only is she liking the new digs, but Miller-Keyes is also learning valuable life lessons with Unglert by her side. She’s been wearing less makeup since the BIP reunion, and she mentioned during the interview that she’s learning how to truly accept herself. “But Dean is always searching for more and he’s making me want to better myself and search for more as well. It’s been great,” Cosmopolitan reports Miller-Keyes said in an interview with ET.

Aside from wearing less makeup, it looks like Miller-Keyes is getting more in touch with nature, too. She’s been posted plenty of photos of her various trips she’s taken with Unglert. And her latest Instagram Story features nature photos that look exactly like something Unglert would post.

“Went to see some pretty leaves and rocks today,” she captioned the first photo of her Story over some fall foliage. This is followed by rocks, woods, rivers, and of course, Unglert, in Sedona, Arizona. “Deanie babies is teaching me a few things about photography,” she added over another photo. And of course, she also included a funny video of Unglert barely fitting through a tiny stone doorway toward the end.

Unglert’s Instagram Story features Miller-Keyes amongst the foliage as well, and they look like they’re having a blast. We’re loving seeing this crunchier, less-polished version of Miller-Keyes and can’t wait to see if her lifestyle rubs off on Unglert at all, too.
