'Bachelor Winter Games' Stars Dean Unglert and Lesley Murphy Split
By Jennifer Drysdale
Another Bachelor Winter Games couple is no longer.
Dean Unglert and Lesley Murphy have gone their separate ways, according to multiple reports. The news comes less than two months after they gushed about each other on Winter Games' reunion show, World Tells All, in February -- and just days after Clare Crawley and Benoit Beausejour-Savard ended their engagement.
On Saturday, Unglert took to Instagram to share a cryptic message about love.
"Growing up as a kid I had a crude but utopian idea of what love is. I always had this idea that no matter what you did, no matter how you act, as long as you’re true to yourself and act in good conscious, your path would lead you to the one person on this planet you’re meant to be with," he wrote. "As I’ve gotten older, I’ve learned that although everyone DESERVES love, it’s not something we’re entitled to. Love takes work. Love is compromise. Love is earned. I still have a lot of work to do on myself, a lot to prove to myself, before I’m ready for something like that."
Unglert and Murphy were quick to couple up while filming Winter Games in December, and transitioned their relationship to the real world after production ended. On World Tells All, Unglert proposed to Murphy with a key to his apartment.
"It was the most nerve-racking moment of my entire life. I can tell you that much," he confessed to ET after the taping, revealing that the key "doesn't really open anything" other than the keypad lock at his house.

"Yay, modern technology!" Murphy shouted, sharing that the gesture might have convinced her to spend more time in Los Angeles. "I think it might. I have been toying with a few different places across the country, but I think the West Coast is the best coast, and that's all I'm gonna say."
According to Murphy, she and Unglert made a fast bond at the beginning of Winter Games after she opened up about her decision to get a double mastectomy after discovering she had the BRCA2 gene. Unglert's mom had breast cancer.
"At the end of the day, Lesley is still an incredibly gorgeous and beautiful person. The fact that something would hold anyone back like that is just mindblowing to me," he continued. "I think that we did bond early on because of that, but I think that we have grown so much closer for so many other things beyond that as well."
"I found a good egg," he said with a smile. "Let's see how long it takes for her to realize that she's out of my league."
Fellow Winter Games stars Ashley Iaconetti and Kevin Wendt announced their breakup last month. Courtney Dober and Lily McManus are the last remaining couple from the Bachelor spinoff.
