Dean Unglert has had his fair share of relationship problems since appearing on Rachel Lindsay’s season of The Bachelorette and then Bachelor in Paradise last summer. But it looks like he’s ready to put the drama behind him, as he recently hinted that his rumored new relationship with — Winter Games spoiler! — fellow Bachelor alum Lesley Murphy is going quite well.
Speaking with Us Weekly, Unglert said that he’s in a good place and has been “incredibly happy” of late. So far, neither Unglert nor Murphy have confirmed their relationship, but multiple outlets, including E! and Us Weekly, reported in January that the couple are indeed an item. Unglert also coyly answered a question about his hopes for his current romance, saying he had his “fingers crossed” when asked if he was in it for the long haul. Hmm!
Unglert, who remains a franchise fan favorite despite his BIP love-triangle drama, and Murphy, who appeared on The Bachelor season 17 with Sean Lowe, are both representing Team USA on the upcoming Bachelor: Winter Games spinoff. They were first spotted together at the recent Sundance Film Festival in Park City, Utah, where they were said to be holding hands while taking in the sights.
“I like someone that is adventurous, someone that has a lot of personality,” Unglert told Us Weekly. (Judging by Murphy’s involvement in Winter Games, it sounds like she fits the bill.) But the 26-year-old also admitted that a good match for him would help compensate for what he considers some of his shortcomings. “Someone that can help make decisions for me because I’m incredibly indecisive. I need someone like that in my life. I’d say those are the three most important things.”
The Bachelor: Winter Games premieres on February 13 at 8pm ET on ABC — and you know we’ll be watching for this potential romance to unfold!
