Dean Unglert and Caelynn Miller-Keyes teased a juicy "vantasy suite" photo after leaving Bachelor in Paradise, revealing that the two indeed are still together following the show. Living in a van must have its drawbacks, but Unglert and Miller-Keyes sure make it look glamorous.
This was not the future Unglert envisioned when he stepped on the beaches of Mexico earlier this summer. He's said as much, indicating that this time on the show would be about having fun and staying as far away from the indecisiveness that plagued him two seasons prior. Even when Unglert connected with Miller-Keyes on their first date in Paradise, he was unwilling to commit. As the two worked through their emotions, Unglert eventually told Miller-Keyes that she would be miserable acquiescing to his vagabond lifestyle. He flew back to San Diego, rented a car - why not use his van? - and drove to the Grand Canyon (or what he thought was the Grand Canyon; it was later revealed he didn't actually make it all the way there.) At that moment, Unglert claimed, he realized that he didn't want to live life without Miller-Keyes. So, he flew back to Mexico, shaved his iconic mustache, and asked for Miller-Keyes to leave with him and start a life together. It was no easy sell because Miller-Keyes had already moved on to Connor Saeli. It wasn't an easy decision, but Miller-Keyes knew her feelings were stronger for Unglert, even if his living accommodations were less than ideal.
In twin Instagram posts, Unglert and Miller-Keyes shared images of them sitting in the "vantasy suite" overlooking a vast landscape. Unglert, tagged the couple as being located in "Pleasure Town" as the looked lovingly at one another under a blanket in the van. He wrote, "sorry we had to leave #bachelorinparadise early, the vantasy suite waits for no one 🚙."
Miller-Keyes, on the other hand, peeled back the curtain as to what life is really like without a roof under her head. She scribed, "Lots of ramen, very few showers, and a whole lot of happiness." During Paradise, Miller-Keyes was understandably skeptical of Unglert's Bachelor pad, but it appears to be working out for her, cleanliness and nutrition notwithstanding.
While Unglert, and now Miller-Keyes, may live in a van, the reality is that their lives are still pretty stable. They get to travel the world and stay with friends whenever they want. The van is a vehicle to the next adventure, rather than a sign that Unglert has fallen on hard times. In fact, now that it's all said and done, it can be argued that Unglert's second try on Paradise ended up improving his overall image. Yes, he shouldn't have left Miller-Keyes in the first place, but he showed his growth by coming back and deciding that he was ready to settle down once he found the right person. For now, it seems like he made the right choice.
The Bachelor in Paradise finale airs September 17 at 8 p.m. on ABC.
