'The Bachelor Winter Games': Are Dean Unglert & Lesley Murphy Dating?

On January 20, E! News reported that Dean Unglert, 26, and Lesley Murphy, 30, are dating after meeting on The Bachelor Winter Games. The news has been confirmed by multiple sources.

Us Weekly reported that the two were seen holding hands at a party at the Sundance Film Festival in Park City, Utah, on January 19. An eyewitness said, "They were holding hands walking through the party and looked very much like a couple talking only to each other.”


The two have pretty much confirmed the news, themselves, as well. Not only have they constantly liked each other's photos on social media, but Unglert spoke to Us Weekly at Lord & Taylor's recent Valentines Day speed dating event, and said that he is "in the best place since he left Paradise" and is "incredibly happy." When the outlet asked if he's in it for the long haul with Murphy, he said, "I hope so. Fingers crossed."

Dean Didn't Leave the Best Impression After 'Bachelor in Paradise'

Dean competed on Rachel Lindsay's season of The Bachelorette. He was then part of a twisted love triangle on Bachelor in Paradise that involved him stringing along Danielle Lombard and Kristina Schulman for too long. The whole ordeal left fans pretty upset with Dean. Ultimately, he chose to continue his relationship with Lombard and Schulman left the show. Then, in the season finale, Dean realized he still loved Kristina and ended things with Danielle. It's all very confusing because according to People, he rekindled the romance with Lombard after the show.

Unglert tells Us Weekly, "I had a bad experience on Bachelor in Paradise, but I learned a lot over that experience so it was nice to be able to go on with a new perspective and really be able to focus on how to improve and not be as much of a s***head as I was the first time around."

Who Is Lesley Murphy?

Lesley Murphy was part of Sean Lowe's season of the show and came in fifth place. (Fun fact: she was a bridesmaid in Sean and Catherine's wedding). Last summer, she underwent a preventative double mastectomy, according to People. She made the decision to have the mastectomy after learning that she carries the BRCA 2 gene, which puts her at high risk of breast cancer. Lesley's mother, according to People, is currently in remission from her breast cancer diagnosis in 2014.

On her About Me page, she writes, "I'm Lesley Murphy, a travel journalist and TV personality currently based out of an overweight suitcase who travels the world for a living. I write, I photograph, I live on airplanes... and I love discovering what makes a destination tick. I know, I know… how does a girl from Arkansas get around so much, right? It’s not about where you’re from. It’s about where you’re going and what you do when you get there."
