Unglert and Murphy met on Winter Games and continued their relationship once the Olympics-themed Bachelor spinoff ended, but their social media accounts had been hinting at a breakup in recent days. Unglert first posted a cryptic message about what love means to him, and Murphy followed suit with a lengthy note to her followers about love and loss. While neither directly addressed the breakup in their posts, Unglert confirmed they had split on the podcast. Out of respect for Murphy鈥檚 privacy, though, he declined to provide details.
