Here's Why Fans Are Convinced Connor & Whitney Are Dating After 'Paradise’
Sometimes the biggest moments of Bachelor in Paradise don't even happen at the Paradise resort. That was the case for Connor Saeli and Whitney Fransway, whose romance took root in an air-conditioned hotel suite far from the beaches of Paradise. Connor had just left Paradise because he was getting impatient waiting for Whitney, but little did he know, she was just a few minutes away from joining him on the beach. When she arrived to find Connor gone, Whitney decided to go after him, and their reunion melted hearts all over Bachelor Nation. Here are some clues that Connor and Whitney are dating after Bachelor in Paradise that will have you rooting for them.
For most of Connor's relatively short time in Paradise, he was pursuing Caelynn Miller-Keyes, but that put him right in the middle of a love triangle with her and Dean Unglert. Caelynn ended up choosing to leave Paradise with Dean, and while Connor was upset, it didn't take long for him to set his sights on someone else. It turned out, he'd been pining for Bachelor Season 21 contestant Whitney ever since they met at Chris Randone and Krystal Nielson's wedding earlier in the season. He explained that they really hit it off, and everything might have turned out differently if Caelynn hadn't pulled him away from talking to her during the wedding. Well, now that Connor and Whitney got the chance to reunite, they just might be able to give their relationship a real try. Based on these clues, it seems like they're still going strong now.
1. They Left Paradise Together
The first clue that Connor and Whitney are together is the fact that they chose to be together at the end of Paradise. It's no small move to leave Paradise altogether, especially only five minutes after you arrived there like Whitney did. Both Connor and Whitney decided to leave because the other wasn't there, which made a pretty bold statement by choosing each other over any other options.
2. Connor's Twitter
Connor tweeted a pretty optimistic sentiment after final last episode of Bachelor in Paradise aired. He said, "It all worked out in the end," with a happy face emoji, which seems like a pretty good sign that things are working out him and Whitney.
He also retweeted a bunch of praise for him and Whitney, and he also tweeted that he'd been planning on sending Whitney a DM on Instagram right before they reunited, so they probably would have linked up after the show no matter what.
3. Whitney's Instagram
On Wednesday, Whitney posted a super sweet Instagram photo of her and Connor. She wrote an equally sweet caption to go with it, which reads: "Be bold; otherwise, you might regret it." It sounds like Whitney is living with no regrets over making the bold move of going after Connor.
4. Connor's Instagram
Connor's been happily posting all over his social media, so he seems pretty content with his post-Paradise life. In addition to his tweets, he posted a romantic photo of himself and Whitney kissing on Instagram, and wrote, "See ya later, Paradise." Now that they've found each other, it looks like Connor and Whitney won't be heading back to Paradise any time soon.
Season 6 of Bachelor in Paradise continues on Tuesday, Sept. 17, at 8 p.m. ET on ABC.
