‘BIP’: The Cute Boyfriend Stuff Dean Unglert Does For Caelynn Miller-Keyes

Prior to dating Caelynn Miller-Keyes, Dean Unglert wasn’t exactly the boyfriend type. He never planned on leaving Bachelor In Paradise with a girlfriend.

His friend and former bachelor Nick Viall certainly didn’t think Unglert was going to end up in a relationship after Paradise.

“I didn’t think Dean was going to leave Bachelor In Paradise in a relationship at all,” he told Miller-Keyes on a recent episode of The Viall Files. “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.”

Caelynn Miller-Keyes says Dean Unglert is a good boyfriend

Viall asked Miller-Keyes if Unglert does a good job of considering her feelings and needs.

“I think that’s a huge thing that’s changed, yeah. That’s one thing that’s changed drastically from that time in Europe to our relationship now. It really does feel like a partnership vs. me just catering to him. He does think of me and, like you said, he has the biggest heart. He treats me very, very well. I think people would not be surprised to know that, but he is a really good boyfriend,” she shared.

Viall asked Miller-Keyes for examples of Unglert’s good-boyfriend behavior.

“He’s just really thoughtful. Like when we’re traveling he always has one day where he’s like ‘I’ve had enough. I need to go hike at [sunrise].’ So when I’m sleeping in bed he’ll wake me up with Starbucks and bagels, just little things like that,” she said.

Miller-Keyes continued: “I was in church and he dropped me off, me and Christian, and he comes to pick me up and he always gets on me for not washing my car because I hate going to the car wash and he’s like ‘Did you notice your car’s washed?’ So while I was in church he washed my car for me.”

[Viall was sure to point out the hypocrisy in Ungert’s concern about the cleanliness of Miller-Keyes’ car when he himself bathes very little.]

Additionally, Miller-Keyes says they’re helping each other to become more vulnerable.

“He’s becoming more vulnerable a little bit. We both are because we both suck at it. I think he’s becoming more vulnerable than I am. He’s always very honest. He’s a good communicator,” she said.

But, most of all, Miller-Keyes is thankful that Ungerlt stood by her when things got ugly with Blake Horstmann.

“I’m so thankful that I’ve had him through all this Paradise stuff because I think if I ended up with someone who was just all about their perfect image, they would have left me immediately. And Dean stuck by my side through the horrible times and I’m very thankful for that,” she said.
