Kristina, a 24-year-old dental hygienist, suggested she would give Dean another chance during a Monday appearance on The Ellen DeGeneres Show, about two months after filming wrapped.
When Dean was sitting right in the middle of Kristina and Danielle on the talk show, host Ellen DeGeneres asked Kristina, "Would you ever consider trying to rekindle this?"
Kristina flashed a huge smile, briefly looked at Dean, and replied, "Only if this guy learns from his mistakes."
From a viewer's perspective, Kristina's answer means yes!
"I think that I personally have a lot of growth to do, but she's amazing and I hope that we can continue to talk and see where that might lead," commented Dean, a 26-year-old startup recruiter from Venice, CA.
Meanwhile, Danielle sat quietly on the couch and had her hands folded.
Bachelor in Paradise's fourth-season finale is set to air on September 11, and viewers will watch the rise or fall of Dean and Danielle's relationship.
Dean spent his days in Mexico going back and forth, emotionally and physically, between Kristina -- whom he had a deep connection with -- and Danielle, a 27-year-old Los Angeles nail salon owner whose looks he was infatuated with.
The ladies put up with Dean's indecisiveness for multiple Rose Ceremonies, but then Danielle gave him an ultimatum and made him choose. Dean was hesitant to enter a serious and sometimes challenging relationship with Kristina, so he opted to move forward in the dating process with the bubbly and fun "DLo."
Instead of handing her rose out to a different bachelor, Kristina quit the show and left Paradise feeling used, unappreciated and unvalued.
But Dean told Us Weekly in a recent interview that he sat down with Kristina and talked about everything that happened at Playa Escondida.
"Hopefully there's a time that we can figure it out and see what happens from there. But we're just for now casually talking and seeing if there's anything there," Dean said, adding that he felt "horrible" about how he had treated both of the women in his love triangle.
