At first, it looked like they were just two young, beautiful ships passing in the night.
But these days, Dean Unglert and Caelynn Miller-Keyes are banging in "Pleasure Town." By which we mean Dean's van. Mostly.
Unfortunately, their sweet romantic getaway may have sparked a feud between Dean and Caelynn's ex, Connor.
On Wednesday, Deanie Babies sat down with Nick Viall for an episode of the latter's podcast, The Viall Files.
Dean explains how he first nervously met Connor Saeli after their Bachelor in Paradise love triangle.
"I was like, ‘Hey, man. It’s nice to meet you," he says.
Dean even complimented him, saying: "You’re even more handsome in person [than] you are on television and from a distance."
"We didn’t really talk much," the 28-year-old admits.
"And then the reunion happened," Dean recalls. "And he tried to talk s--t."
At the reunion, Connor had questions for Caelynn about why she had left Paradise with Dean.
"Connor is this really incredibly good-looking dude," Dean correctly acknowledges. "I was terrified."
"I was, like, building him up, and then after the show, I shook his hand," Dean recalls.
He continues: "And I was like, ‘Hey, it’s nice to officially, formally meet you.’"
It's always intimidating to meet your girl's ex. Especially when he looks like Connor. Especially when he looks like Connor shirtless.
“He leans over," Dean narrates. "And he goes, ‘Nice to meet you too, man. I would really love to see the van sometime.'"
"'I’ve been thinking about doing the van life myself,'" he says that Connor told him.
Dean shares: "And I go, ‘Bro, you can’t say that because you’ve been talking s--t about my van nonstop on the Bachelor in Paradise.’"
Well ... to be fair, a lot of people had a lot of opinions about Dean and his van this season.
Personally, the van is fine -- Dean's doing okay. I'm just glad to see the mustache in the ashes of history where he belongs.
That was not the end of it, if you can believe it.
Dean relates to Nick that he slid into Connor's DMs to wish him luck in the future. Standard politeness stuff.
Well, apparently Connor once again brought up how much he envied the freedom of Deanie's current lifestyle.
"Are you jealous of it, or do you wanna talk s--t about it?" Dean asks rhetorically while recalling this exchange.
Folks, it sounds like Dean's van is a sore subject for him and he's a little self-conscious.
You can make fun of it if you want, but don't expect him to fall in love with you if you do.
Despite that clear point of contention, Dean says that he and Connor are "fine."
Dean is the one who ended up boning Caelynn into the sunset, so that's probably a good alm to his ego.
In fact, Dean says that he would "love" to help Connor get set up like he is and give him advice and generally show him the ropes.
"You seem like a great guy. I wanna be friends,” Dean says.
He then suggests: “Let’s be van buddies."
