DeAnna Pappas didn’t find love on The Bachelor. Or as the star of The Bachelorette. But the twin brother of a Bachelorette castoff appears to have done the trick.

Reports of DeAnna and Stephen Stagliano – brother of Michael Stagliano – getting engaged and planning a wedding last month were premature, but now it’s legit.

According to an inside source, DeAnna and Stephen are hoping to star in a new reality show with Michael and Michael’s fiancée, fellow Bachelor alum Holly Durst.

“They’re pitching their show all around town,” the insider says of the Stagliano Bros. “They want a double wedding and are hoping that it all gets aired on TV.”

DeAnna was rejected by Brad Womack on The Bachelor season finale, then chose Jesse Csincsak on The Bachelorette, only to break up with him shortly after.

“I need someone who makes me laugh,” she said back then. “I realized the relationship was coming to an end when we stopped laughing with each other.”

Jesse also dated Holly Durst after breaking up with DeAnna. The whole Bachelor universe is so incestuous … and this was long before Bachelor Pad existed.

In any case, congratulations to the happy couple(s)!
