When Caelynn Miller-Keyes and Dean Unglert connected on the beach in Mexico while filming Bachelor in Paradise, few thought their relationship would go the distance. When Unglert chose to leave the beach because he wasn’t ready for a serious relationship, Miller-Keyes was devastated. But, in an unexpected twist, Unglert returned and convinced the former beauty queen to leave the show with him.
Today, the couple is still going strong. In fact, with the exception of Hannah Godwin and Dylan Barbour, they remain the only couple of their season who are still together post-Paradise. Unlike Barbour and Godwin, the pair aren’t engaged and are taking their relationship day by day. But, they seem to be incredibly happy together and are even quarantining together in Miller-Keyes’ apartment amidst the coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic.

In a recent YouTube video, Miller-Keyes even went into great detail about how fortunate she feels to have Unglert as a partner. The Bachelor alum then got candid about all the ways that Unglert has changed her life.
“Dean has impacted and changed my life in so many ways, every single one for the better,” Miller-Keyes shared about Unglert. “He’s always helping me to grow and change and he’s always encouraging me and always supporting me in whatever I do. He’s so supportive and so kind, but he pushes me. He pushes me to the point where I get so frustrated with him. I will either get angry or cry because I do cry in scary situations, like if heights are involved.”
‘The Bachelor in Paradise’ star says Unglert has affected her personality
The Bachelor alum continued on to share that Unglert has even impacted her personality and helped here to be less of a people pleaser and live life on her own terms. “He’s really helped me embrace like being natural and embracing the quirks about myself,” Miller-Keyes added. “He’s made me so much more chill and mellow, more loving calm, patient.”
“I just feel like I was this uptight wound up ball and I cared about what every single person thought of me, even though you’ll never please everyone,” Miller-Keyes added about how her mentality has shifted since she began dating Unglert. “The people who hate me are always gonna hate me. Their opinion is never gonna change and he’s just made me like relax and realize if I’m happy with myself if I’m happy in my life none of that matters; none of that noise.”
Miller-Keyes loves that her boyfriend pushes her to be more adventurous
Miller-Keyes also confessed that she loves that Unglert pushes her to be more bold and adventurous. “And I love that he pushes me and challenges me,” the former beauty queen shared. “And every time I get mad at him for like doing a scary hike or rock climb or almost jumping out of an airplane, I look back and I’m like ‘That was the best experience of my life.’ I’m realizing I need to be pushed. I need to be stretched. I want to be doing all these things, but I need someone to kind of just get me there sometimes. So he’s made me such a better person in so many ways and I am so thankful for him.”
It appears that Unglert’s love has changed Miller-Keyes for the better. While they may not have been the most obvious couple on Bachelor in Paradise, it seems that they are well-suited after all.
