That is, until Miller-Keyes had a conversation with Bachelor In Paradise bartender Wells Adams and fellow Paradiser Demi Burnett. In an effort to look out for Miller-Keyes, Burnett gave her fellow contestant some tough love. She told her to be careful of Unglert, because of his reputation when it comes to dating. She warned her that he makes every woman feel special. Though he’s friends with Unglert, Adams didn’t disagree. He told Miller-Keyes that no woman’s ever been able to “wrangle” him before, and that she should have a conversation with him about his intentions post-show.
That conversation seemed to be the beginning of the end.
To Unglert’s credit, he was honest about his intentions.
“All I know is I’m enjoying spending my time with you, and I don’t want to spend it with any other girl while I’m here. But I suck at dating. It’s challenging for me to see myself getting to a point where I’m like, ‘alright, I’m ready to settle down now, but now I’m going to take off in this van for nine months so I can be as free as possible,” he told her.
Later, Unglert helped Miller-Keyes celebrate her birthday. He brought her a cake, complete with candles, and sung her “Happy Birthday,” accompanied by the rest of the Bachelor In Paradise cast. He awarded her his rose at the ceremony, but promptly after, pulled her aside to tell her he was leaving the show. He told her he couldn’t give her what she wants.
Miller-Keyes was heartbroken. She thought she could “convince [him] otherwise,” as Unglert told her she needed to do.
