Unglert In Reality TV
Unglert was first introduced to viewers of reality TV through the 13th season of The Bachelorette. He made it to week 8 before being eliminated.
Following his run at The Bachelorette, the podcaster appeared in the 4th season of Bachelor in Paradise and The Bachelor Winter Games. He left both the shows after 4 weeks.
Unglert returned for the 6th season of Bachelor in Paradise, where he met his current girlfriend, Caelynn Miller-Keyes.
The two hit it off when he joined the show during week 2 but he quit on week 3 saying she deserved better.
Our lifestyles are not going to be compatible coming out of this. And I don’t want to give you something that isn’t going to make you happy. I just think that you deserve someone better than me, to be perfectly honest.
He returned in week 5 to ask Miller-Keyes to leave Bachelor in Paradise with him so that they could continue their relationship in the real world. She agreed to his proposal and adopted his lifestyle of living in a van.
Unglert has since spoken about his unwillingness to get married but has shown his commitment to Miller-Keyes by wearing a matching ring.
I’m committed to Caelynn and only Caelynn. And that’s why I’ve been wearing it [ring] for the past six or so months. It’s our way of telling the world or the people that we’re around that we’re committed to each other.
The couple moved into their new home, which they bought together, in Las Vegas in April 2021.
She also did a house tour vlog on her YouTube channel.
