Dean Unglert and Lesley Murphy split last week. The news of the “Bachelor” nation couple calling it quits shocked fans. It looked like Unglert had finally met his match, but as it turns out, that was not the case. The details surrounding the split have been kept under wraps. Both parties have released acknowledgments on Instagram, but an official statement has not been released.

This issue was his

“Bachelor” nation fans know that Dean Unglert has a complicated past. His relationship with his father is strained to say the least. It was featured on Rachel Lindsay's season of “The Bachelorette.” Unglert lost his mother over a decade ago when he was just 15.

Lesley Murphy seemed to be the match he had been looking for. She had been out of the reality television spotlight for a few years following a failed attempt at love. Murphy was welcomed back to the franchise with the “Winter Games” spin-off, which is where she met Dean.

According to Us Weekly, Dean Unglert has decided to enter therapy following his split from Lesley Murphy. He announced this on his podcast yesterday. His words made it seem like he was the reason for the split because he praised Murphy. Unglert acknowledged that he has some deep-rooted issues to work through right now. He has always wanted love and believes he got that from Lesley. Unfortunately, that was not enough to salvage their relationship.

The future

As of now, neither Dean Unglert or Lesley Murphy have talked about what they plan for the future. Both have expressed the desire to get married, and that is what fans had hoped the couple would do. Right now, Unglert is focused on working through his issues and attending therapy to get there. Murphy will likely drop out of the spotlight where she had been for the last few years.

The “Winter Games” was something she was interested in trying, but ultimately love didn't prevail. Murphy had mentioned wanting to try again because of the success stories that have come from the franchise. While there have been a few, the fails have far outweighed the wins.

“The Bachelor” will be returning for another season later this year.

Fans wanted Dean Unglert to be the lead for the past season, but ABC went with Arie Luyendyk Jr. instead. Things could have turned out way differently had they had gone with Dean and not with a former contestant on “The Bachelorette” who was no longer relevant. Unglert would have easily been a fan-favorite forever.
