On Tuesday, Dean Unglert joined “Extra’s” social media correspondent Hannah Kahn after the season finale of “Bachelor In Paradise.”
A lot of the “Bachelor in Paradise” drama revolved around Dean’s love triangle with Kristina Schulman and Danielle Lombard. After Kristina chose to leave ‘Paradise,' Dean pursued a connection with Danielle, only to confess to Danielle that he had unresolved feelings for Kristina, who he said he “loved.” Dean was in the hot seat Monday night on the “Paradise” finale, getting grilled by the ladies and Chris Harrison. The trio was recently on "Ellen," where Kristina played coy about the possibility of rekindling the relationship.
Dean, alongside his friend Eric Bigger, a fellow contestant from Rachel’s season of “The Bachelorette,” opened up on where his relationship with Kristina stands today, telling Hannah, “Kristina and I have had multiple discussions on what we plan on doing with each other’s relationship moving forward.”
He went on, "I think for her to be, I guess, so exposed over the course of the month we were in ‘Paradise' together, there just needs to be a rebuilding of trust between the two of us, and that’s not gonna happen overnight. I mean, we still talk a lot. I talk to her every single day. So we’re just figuring it out.”
Dean also admitted he has been in contact with Danielle since “BIP,” explaining, “When Danielle and I separated on that final day, it’s like we broke up and then you just can’t talk to each other at all. You can’t really dive into the reasons why you’re broken up, so that was kind of the intentions behind that… We talked afterwards, but it wasn’t like ‘Paradise' where I was hooking up with Kristina and then hooking up with Danielle.”
