Dean Unglert reveals whether he will return to 'Bachelor in Paradise' for a future season
By Elizabeth Kwiatkowski, 05/09/2018
Dean Unglert entered four different relationships with women over the course of his three appearances on The Bachelor spinoffs, so would he be interested in looking for love on Bachelor in Paradise again?
According to Dean, the answer is no.
During Dean's Tuesday episode of his Help! I Suck at Dating podcast, the 26-year-old insisted, "As I've said before and I will continue to say, there is no chance I'm going to Bachelor in Paradise."
Dean became a controversial figure because he had a physical and emotional connection with each woman and couldn't make up his mind. The women were head over heels for Dean and clearly hurting throughout the season, but he kept bouncing back and forth between them in Mexico.
Dean was also accused of trying to date both Kristina and Danielle in the real world once the show wrapped filming. The girls called him out for his antics on the reunion special, and Dean was therefore criticized for being a playboy as well as selfish and insensitive.
"I'll maybe continue to, like, tease the possibility of it, but no," Dean said of returning to Paradise. "Come on people. There is no way I'm ever going back there."
However, Dean used his damaged reputation to his benefit by choosing to host his "suck at dating" podcast beginning in September 2017.
Dean then decided to compete on The Bachelor: Winter Games, which began taping in late 2017. He fell for Lesley Murphy from Sean Lowe's season of The Bachelor.
The couple seemed crazy about each other but only dated for four months before publicly calling it quits on their romance last month.
On Dean's podcast Tuesday, he revealed that his last kiss was with Lesley on March 14, and "everything [is] good" between them now. Dean also started therapy sessions once his relationship with Lesley failed.
Now that Dean is back on the market, rumors have swirled he was spotted kissing Kristina at the Stagecoach music festival in April and they might get back together.
Dean, however, slammed such rumors right when he got the chance.
"There have been so many rumors circulating about me for the last seven days and it just blows my mind where this stuff even comes from," Dean said. "I'm not dating anyone. Single AF, I think that's a very accurate qualification for me."
