You either get sent home the hero or stay on camera long enough to become the Bachelor villain, we guess.
Or, if you’re Dean Unglert, you apparently do both.
Now Danielle Lombard is sharing exactly what she thinks of their time together, of Dean himself, and of being on Bachelor in Paradise.
No, she doesn’t comment on Justin Bieber creeping on her photos.
“Dean is the kind of person who changes his mind every couple of days, maybe even every couple of hours.”
After the way that he darted back and forth between her and Kristina Schulman, we can see why she would feel that way.
“He doesn’t really know what he wants.”
And, of course, Dean proclaimed his love for Kristina.
“When I heard that I was just like, ‘You know what? You still have a lot of stuff to figure out.’”
Danielle’s a wise girl.
“We had talked about doing things in the future together and had made plans to hang out, so it was surprising he had changed his mind.”
She had a lot more to say to Us, though. About Dean anda bout her overall experience.
“The way the producers made it seem like there was greater opportunity to meet someone that you could have a relationship with outside of the show. I was honestly hesitant to do Paradise because of the stigma it has of it being like spring break and everyone is hooking up.”
Yeah, that’s kind of the show.
“But everyone I talked to that did the show, whether they had a great edit or not, said it was an incredible experience.”
She went on and initially was considering someone else entirely.
“It wasn’t like Dean was my only option and I was only pursuing him. Ben Z and I actually had a very nice time together. I knew him before the show because he’s one of Jasmine’s good friends. In Paradise, I was trying to see if we had a connection. I think he’s a great person, but I just didn’t feel the chemistry with him. It’s funny because they just don’t show that!”
Well, editing is what they use to tell stories.
Plus, there’s only so much time in a season.
Danielle really set out to avoid love triangle shenanigans. Alas.
“When I sat down and talked to the girls, I wanted them to tell me who they liked. I wanted them to speak up the way Jasmine did to Christen [Whitney] like, ‘No, I really like this guy. Don’t go after him or I’ll kill you.’ Whether we’re friends or not, if someone says that to me I would go find someone else.”
Well, yeah, especially if they’re including a death threat.
“When I talked to Dean, he told me he and Kristina did hang out during the break but that he wanted to pump the brakes. He wanted to date other people and had encouraged her to do the same thing. And when I talked to Kristina, she said that they weren’t in a relationship either. I figured I would spend time with him and if there wasn’t a connection, at least I would know and I could try and pursue another relationship.”
Danielle talks about how she and Dean bonded.
“We’re both very light-hearted people. I think that was one of the main differences between my relationship with him versus Kristina’s. He was just someone that I felt super comfortable with. We laugh all the time and we’re very smiley people.”
They casual ease to their relationship came across as “shallow” for some viewers.
“I just felt like we had this light-hearted connection where we just wanted to have fun. We didn’t want to put pressure on ourselves with the thought of getting engaged at the end of this. We just wanted to get to know each other in a more relaxed setting.”
But that wasn’t to be.
“I knew the situation between me, Kristina, and him caused a lot of stress. I think in the back of my mind I knew it was a possibility that he would want to leave separately. It was still hard for me to hear, though. I was like, ‘If he’s having doubts, I don’t want to get involved with someone like that. I rather he tell me now so we can move on separately.’ But that’s not what happened afterwards.”
Yeah, “doubts” isn’t quite the word for that level of indecisiveness.
Afterwards, when Dean called her up, she really let him have it.
“I gave it to him straight. I said, ‘You don’t know what you want. You made a complete fool of me on national television. You literally told me you loved someone else and now you’re calling me saying you want to hang out. I just don’t understand your thought process.'”
Dean wasn’t prepared to take all of the blame.
“He told me that he was encouraged to say those things. I just think it was his way of saving face at the end of Paradise. He came over to my hotel room and we talked some more. As soon as we got back to L.A., we hung out with each other and started this off camera relationship that I thought was going in the right direction. “
“I’m definitely frustrated with [Dean]. I think he’s been very dismissive of our relationship and continues to allude that he only pursued me because of my looks.”
Danielle has shot down that idea a lot on Instagram.
“I’ve never been in a position or a relationship where I’ve felt so disrespected by someone. It’s frustrating because he told me he would have my back and stand up for me but at the end of the day, he just saves himself instead of being honest about things.”
Dean may have blown his relationship and ruined his chance at being the Bachelor unless he has a really powerful redemption arc.
“It’s a lesson learned moving forward. I don’t hate him but I am disappointed.”
You know what? A lot of us feel that way about Dean right now.
On Bachelor in Paradise Season 4 Episode 9, the fun in the sun came to an end south of the border, but were any couples left standing?
What dramatic events would make or break some of the love-struck castaways as their final days in Paradise drew to a close?
When the episode got underway, we quickly found out that the couples could leave separately, together or have a date with the opportunity of hitting up a fantasy suite.
Lacey and Daniel were up first, and it became clear as day that there was something between them. Lacey wanted to spend the night with Daniel.
“I’m not done with you yet. Come to your king.” Yes, he actually said that, and we at THG think he’s hilarious. He made a sordid joke about Lacey getting ready for the “Fourth of July” in his pants.
Yes, she liked the joke. She’s a keeper.
Jack wanted to leave Paradise with Christen hand in hand, and Christen freaked out over it.
“I can’t leave here as a couple,” she says. “We are acquaintances right now!”
Um, that’s not a nice way to put it, and all of a sudden we feel like these two will not stand the test of time. Jack was confused, but it proved the pair had very different stances on the relationship.
“Up until this point, we’ve talked about the weather,” she says about the whole incident, before Jack leaves on his very own mobile. Yes, they are so soo over.
Raven and Adam decided that the fantasy suite could be a fun way to get to know each other a little better, which is pretty great. Adam loves how “easy things are with her.”
Yeah, he totally said that.
Things between Dean and Danielle quickly went south. Danielle wanted to hit up the fantasy suite, but then Dean revealed that Kristina was still on his mind.
He revealed he was in love with Kristina and had to part ways with her for that reason.
“I literally hate myself right now,” he says. He may have tried to be a player, but he proved he has a heart. That’s the main thing we’re getting from his actions.
Dom called time on the relationship with Diggy, but never really gave much of a reason, so hopefully get an update on them later.
When it came to Robby and Amanda, it seemed like everything was going well … until Amanda started crying.
“Do you really see that?” she asked after he claimed they could work together out of Paradise. Robby started wailing as she let him down.
Maybe she did not want to rush into things after what happened with her and Josh Murray. Either that, or she’s holding out hope to become the Bachelorette.
Lacey and Daniel went on their first official date, and it was evident they were falling for each other. They decided to leave Paradise as a couple and indulged in some fun in the fantasy suite.
When Taylor and Derek went on their date, she said she needed to know the sex was good before dropping the L-bomb. Dean was happy enough to show her his moves, so they made their way to the fantasy suite like it was a race.
Raven and Adam questioned whether they could really be a thing and have sex, but we never got an answer straight away.
Chris was joined by Jaimi, Diggy, Dominique, Emily, Haley, Jasmine, Alexis, Jack Stone, D. Lo, Christen, Dean, Danielle M., and Kristina.
Corinne Olympios and DeMario Jackson were then brought out together. The big controversy was over, and they were able to move on with their lives.
Dean revealed that it was difficult for him to see Kristina because he felt so strongly for her, but they were not together. It did seem like there was the potential for them to meet up, but we don’t know as of yet if they will.
But then Danielle revealed that Dean called her ONE HOUR after leaving Paradise. Did he feel bad, or did he put on a show for the cameras?
Amanda then revealed that she gave Robby a chance but, it was just not working and the twins tried to accuse him of cheating.
As if that was not bad enough, Lacey revealed that Daniel said his feelings were a lie and he put on a show for the cameras.
Chris played an audio recording from the morning after their final date and Daniel said some damning things.
“Lacey might like me a little bit more than I like her. I could never change my Facebook status to ‘in a relationship with Lacey.’”
What a snake.
But Raven and Adam are still together, so there’s that. It’s been a long road for them, but at least their feelings are real.
Derek then asked Taylor to marry him. So, at least we have one proposal.
That’s a wrap on Bachelor in Paradise Season 4.
What did you think of it?
Sound off below.
Dean Unglert went from everyone’s blue eyed dream to making a lot of people upset on Bachelor in Paradise. Why? Well … love triangle shenanigans, basically.
Those shenanigans came to an end on Monday night’s episode with a breakup that didn’t really make anybody happy.
Among the people who responded were Rachel Lindsay, Dean’s own ex, who tweeted some serious shade in his direction.
Remember when Dean Unglert said that he made an ass of himself in Paradise?
Well … he’s as good as his word.
Until this week’s episode, Dean had been juggling both Danielle Lombard and Kristina Schulman
And yeah, we get it — Bachelor in Paradise is all about figuring out who, if anyone, is right for you.
Dating the first person you see might not be the best plan.
There’s also an argument to be made that people aren’t necessarily well-suited for monogamy, but we’ll get to that in a moment.
Because, though Kristina came across as sympathetic and she and Dean seemed to have a real connection (while Dean also hooked up with Danielle and Danielle didn’t restrict herself exclusively to Dean, either), Dean ended up choosing Danielle.
A lot of fans were crushed.
Some of them were rooting for Dean and Kristina.
A lot of them were rooting for Kristina to find happiness.
Others were just rooting for Dean to stay the endearing, precious boy they’d seen on The Bachelorette.
So there was a lot of disappointment. All around.
As we mentioned, Rachel Lindsay — who competed alongside Kristina Schulman for Nick Viall’s hand on The Bachelor before becoming the Bachelorette and finding love … or whatever … with Bryan Abasolo, threw some shade at Dean over the whole affair.
She tweeted this:
“Never settle @kristinaschulma ….love you girl.”
She followed that up with a kissing emoji.
You may notice that she doesn’t mention Dean by name.
But her “never settle” message is a reminder that they now have two exes in common, and a diss against Dean.
Rachel is implying that Dean isn’t worthy of Kristina, and that Kristina — like Rachel — could do better.
It may have also occurred to you that Rachel Lindsay has a whole lot of nerve tweeting anything at anybody about breaking up with the wrong person.
She’s kind of an expert on the subject, but that’s not the same as being an authority on which breakups are smart or not.
Sorry if we’re not going to take romantic advice from the woman who chose a guy who says whatever she wants to hear and left Peter Kraus a sobbing mess.
For his part, Dean Unglert posted this to Instagram:
His heartbreaking caption?
“You were out of my league.”
A friend of mine DMed this post to me as soon as she saw it to make sure that I had seen it, because there are a lot of feels to be had.
Honestly, we think that Kristina and Dean just got swept up in it all.
Dean, in particular, was basically on the rebound after making it almost to the very end of The Bachelorette.
Like, Rachel Lindsay met his dad. He wasn’t just on for a few episodes to get his name out there.
As we mentioned, monogamy isn’t right for everyone.
For some people, it’s the only way for them to have a relationship.
For others, it’s unnatural and monogamy culture — and especially the idea that there’s exactly one person out there who’s right for you — is horrifying.
There are a lot of successful polyamorous relationships, and with social acceptance, that is growing.
We’d love to see a Bachelor series with an emphasis on polyamory, but we’re sure that it will take years before enough viewers are open-minded enough to tune in.
On such a show, maybe this love triangle wouldn’t have been so devastating. Maybe it would have just been, you know, a normal triad.
If that would work for all three of them, anyway.
Not everybody’s cut out to be polyamorous.
We think that, within the Bachelor Nation, Dean can get past this.
Dean is, after all, a young guy who’s openly admitted that he has more maturing to do.
And that was before he went on Bachelor in Paradise.
Dean is not going to be the next Bachelor, but we’d love to see him on the next season of Bachelor in Paradise.
And maybe, in a couple of years, after he’s had his “redemption arc” on camera, he could make an amazing — and still quite young — leading man.
And, for what it’s worth, we wish Kristina Schulman the best.
A blast from the past rocked Bachelor in Paradise Season 4 Episode 8, and it helped send the show in an interesting direction.
When the episode got underway, Jaimi entered Paradise and was quick to point out that her bisexuality would help her find the love of her life.
Jaimi’s biggest concern seemed to be why nobody was getting hot and heavy with Tickle Monster. Did she feel sorry for him? Did the producers try to get her to go with him?
We don’t know, but Jaimi decided to take Diggy on a date, but Dominique was pissed.
“If someone’s checking me out,” Jaimi reasoned, “He’s obviously not that into you.”
Jaimi opened up about identifying as “fluid” as opposed bisexual.
Diggy did seem enthralled by her, so we’re going to go out on a limb here and say there’s going to be fireworks if they get together.
Paradise is gradually becoming all about love triangles, so what better way to cause some drama?
Throw in Haley and Emily because they are the life of the party and will make everything fun again.
“We’re just here to f—k s—t up,” they claimed.
They were interested in Derek and Dean and entered Paradise armed with a double date card.
Yes, there’s going to be drama. Amanda quickly lets the ladies know that both men are taken. Amanda tries to send them towards Jack Stone and Tickle Monster.
Everyone else tried to figure out how to tell the twins apart, and the girls listed all of the features that are different.
“Our vaginas our different,” says one of them, before we got the reveal that Haley’s was the better one.
“Hers is still wonderful,” says Haley with a smile.
Is this for real?
Emily then pursued Dean for a date, but he was against the idea. So, Emily followed Danielle and got her to say that it was not her decision, but it did not help matters.
“I’m not going on a date with anyone else but you,” Emily yelled.
“I just can’t say yes,” he replied.
At least Emily was intent on causing drama because the show has been as stale as a scallop of late. Yes, they were still talking about scallops throughout the episode.
Emily turned to Tickle Monster and decided he was her next best option, but Haley revealed that Danielle was as annoying as a wall.
“We decided we’re going to go on this date with each other and bring these two douchebags with us,” the twins said.
When the twins got ready for the date, Jack backed out because he was getting along with Christen and felt like the twins were only using him because their first options were gone.
The twins reacted in the most horrible way, by yelling, “F— everybody here,” before throwing scallops on the ground and making an early exit from Paradise.
Yes, it totally seemed like the producers brought them on for a short stint to lighten up the mood, and it worked.
Chris Harrison appeared out of nowhere and dropped the bomb that it was their last day in Paradise.
Good, because this season has been all over the place and it’s time to end it.
Who will leave engaged? Who will be thrown off the island for being obsessed with scallops? Find out next week.
Dean’s game was not on top form in Paradise, and that’s why absolutely nobody was surprised that Kristina caught a glimpse of him messing around with Danielle.
On Bachelor in Paradise Season 4 Episode 8, the drama got a little crazy, and it resulted in some crazy scenes.
When the episode got underway, the guys wasted no time in telling Dean that Kristina watched everything he was doing with Danielle.
You guys were there?” he asked Robby.
“Why didn’t you take her down to the beach?”
Is this dude for real? Why should other people be helping Dean be a nasty little creep? All of the drama is his own doing, and he should be the one to sort it.
For what it’s worth, Dean did feel bad for the way he had treated Kristina. He slept with her the same day he moved on to Danielle, so it’s understandable that Kristina would be mad.
When he plucked up the courage to apologize to Kristina, she was not having any of it. Her issue with him was that he kept telling her to wait around and something would happen.
She noted that he was essentially telling her to wait around while he got hot and heavy with someone else.
“I don’t understand how I can have the most amazing girl in front of me and I’m flirting with another girl in the pool,” he said in a confessional.
It seemed like the conversation only served to make him feel better before resuming his steamy make out sessions with Danielle. God, this guy will never learn.
The first new addition of the week was Blake from Rachel’s season, and the ladies were not entirely impressed. They were nice to his face, but you could tell he was not a popular dude.
Raven decided to offer out some kind words of advice: Don’t speak about Whaboom dude, or else! No, she meant when he was asking for dates with the women.
But, none of the women seemed interested in him, so it was a bit of a wasted conversation. Still, Raven was nice enough to help out.
Then, another member of Rachel’s season appeared, and he got a warmer reception than Blake. This new addition was Fred, and everyone LOVED him.
Both of their date cards were for a double date, so Fred chose Dominique, while Blake struggled. He eventually asked Christen who seemed a little miffed at not being his first pick.
Remember that time Christen said Jack was a bad kisser? Well, the ladies in Paradise thought it would be a good idea to test his skills. Jasmine, Raven, and Danielle all agreed that he was a great kisser.
We’re glad that they somehow wanted to clear Jack’s name. The women are all so nice this season. Like, maybe a little too nice.
Chris then made an unwelcome visit to let them know the rose ceremony was happening sooner rather than later, and Robby was gifted with a date card.
Surprise, Amanda got another date. Sigh.
Later that night, Ben Z. left Paradise behind because there was nobody he felt that he could connect with. He did not want to stay there to soak up the sun.
Raven then shocked everyone by calling Christen “Scallops,” paving the way for one of the most awkward moments of the entire series. Wells and Christen were not amused by the situation but moved on from it.
Danielle asked Dean for some reassurance. She wanted to know that if he would accept a rose from Kristina. Dean skirted the issue and said he was avoiding her.
He then said he would tell Kristina the truth about pursuing a relationship with Danielle so she would back off. He then made his way over to Kristina.
She was happy he was finally honest with her, but she was not impressed at being second best.
“So you want to pursue not even a woman, a girl, who’s straddling someone in the ocean and made out with Jack Stone today,” she says, before leaving the conversation.
Kristina turned to Raven who said that Kristina’s opinion was not going to change overnight and she needed time to heal.
While Kristina wanted to throw all of the blame at Danielle, Raven told her that Dean was the one who messed her around and jerked with her emotions.
Naturally, Kristina turned on Raven because what she needed was a friend … not a lecture. This is getting ridiculous now, you guys.
“Why are you fighting for someone who’s not fighting for you? ” said a startled Wells as Kristina realized she was selfish.
The rose ceremony played out in a way that was not really surprising.
- Lacey gave hers to Daniel.
- Taylor gave hers to Derek.
- Amanda gave hers to Robby.
- Raven gave hers to Adam.
- Dominique gave hers to Diggy.
- Jasmine gave hers to Jonathan.
- Christen gave hers to Jack Stone.
That meant Blake was being sent home, and we are not surprised.
But then Kristina stood up and did not give out her rose. Instead, she fled Paradise after throwing shade at Dean and Danielle. That meant there was no room for Fred, and he, too, was sent packing.
Danielle closed off the episode by giving her rose to Dean. And the love triangle is now extinct.
What did you think of all the drama?
Sound off below!
Bachelor in Paradise is full of all sorts of wild characters.
You know that, even if you just read our Bachelor in Paradise Season 4 Episode 6 recap.
Precious, blue-eyed Dean Unglert found himself at the center of a love triangle and, as promised, he's been making an ass of himself.
Fortunately (sort of), Dean's poor choices of words and indecision were tremendously overshadowed by one much-anticipated (and much-feared) appearance in Paradise: Canadian Daniel.
Canadian Daniel is a hot dude and probably used to relying on his attractiveness to skate by, because the things that he says — the "jokes" that he makes in various attempts to be funny — don't just fall flat. They are downright offensive.
First and foremost, Daniel referred to women as "scraps." You know, like leftovers, which is just disgusting.
He kept referring to himself (well, his penis) as "Canadian bacon," which is not only cringeworthy but also an unappealing comparison, since nobody has ever actually preferred (literal) Canadian bacon over normal bacon. Also, stop talking about your dick, dude.
Daniel also made a transphobic joke about Caitlyn Jenner (we're really tired of those), asked Cristen about her virgin status (what the hell), and treated Lacey like garbage right up until he offered her a rose.
Well, Twitter took notice and really let Daniel have it. It's clear that, if he wants to stick around, he's going to need to clean up his act. Here are some tweets that really nail down how viewers feel about him:
1. People noticed the "scraps" thing
2. Chrissy Teigen memes for all occasions
3. Daniel is hot, but …
4. Daniels full of scrap
5. This analogy might go a little too far
6. This one is blunt
For some reason, the drama in Bachelor in Paradise this season is all over the place. Just when you think it’s all calmed down, it all kicks off again.
While that’s usually a good thing, Bachelor in Paradise Season 4 Episode 6 was a disaster.
When the episode got underway, Matt had decided Paradise was not for him and peaced out from the place like it was a hot potato.
While one of them was out the door, there was a new man drafted in to give a rose to a lady in need. If you watch Bachelor in Paradise online, you will know that Lacey has been talking about Canadian Daniel all season long.
As soon as he walked in, she was all over him like a rash and saying the craziest things to him.
“I’ve been waiting for you!”
Daniel was not impressed about being left with Lacy, noting he’s been “left with the scraps of Paradise.” Like, where did they even get this dude from?
He’s disrespected one of the women, and he’s been on the show all of two minutes. And, if you thought Lacey was done with him after his little outburst, she was not.
She must feel so dumb watching all of this back, but maybe she could fill in some of the blanks because we know the producers condense a lot of the content to create a narrative.
The only saving grace for Daniel was that he handed Lacey over the rose at the ceremony, so he’s not all bad. Maybe he does see a future with her.
Matt then made a return at the last second to hand over the rose to Jasmine. It was a cute gesture, but it was completely lost on her.
“Go back to your little town in Connecticut. Enjoy your life. You’ll probably regret it. You’re dead to me,” she yelled in her confessional.
Derek gave his rose to Taylor, Robby gave his to Amanda and Adam gave his to Raven.
Dean then handed his rose over to Kristina after revealing he was more attracted to Danielle. Did his guilt take over? You’re meant to be finding love in Paradise, not keeping friends around.
If Dean thought Danielle was out of the picture, he was so wrong because Ben handed over the rose to her, which meant the end of Sarah and Alexis.
Things quickly got weird with Kristina daring Dean to get an inaudible thing, but we’re going to assume she said “boner.”
“Okay, give me a [CENSORED],” Dean replied. Kristina said she would be taking no part in it and he would need to do it all himself.
“You’re not going to touch it at all?” And then he says, “Give me a second. Give me another 20 seconds.”
What the hell?
Meanwhile, the Tickle Monster made his grand entrance, and all of the women seemed high on him.
Christen wasted no time in getting it on with the Tickle Monster.
“I think it takes a lot of confidence to let your job title be Tickle Monster when you’re actually a doctor,” she says.
While Christen and Tickle went on a date, Dean was back at the resort with Danielle on his mind.
“I know if and when I pass on Kristina to move on to Danielle, Danielle will never be as into me as Kristina is at this point,” he revealed.
Like, who even says that? He is a first class D-Bag, and we hope all the women reject him now.
Eventually, he did cut Kristina off but essentially said they could end up back together.
“He and I stayed the night last night, and you can assume what happened,” Kristina wails to Robby as they watch Dean get up close and personal with Danielle.
Then, it was time for Corinne to open up about what really happened to her in Paradise.
Olympios explained that she was on medication that did not react well with the alcohol and that was the reason she blacked out.
She said that when she woke up, she did not remember anything, and was confused by production being shut down.
She then stressed that she had no hard feelings to Demario and that he was a victim in all of the drama.
Corinne called the whole thing annoying and noted that she could not even go tot he grocery store without her name appearing on magazines and people judging her.
Yep, she still blames the media!
