Caelynn met Dean Unglert on the 6th season of Bachelor in Paradise where they were a sure thing for weeks before Dean broke things off because he wasn't ready for a relationship. He returned for Caelynn, asking her to leave Paradise and continue their relationship in "the real world".

On June 20, 2020, they celebrated their one year anniversary. They got engaged on October 24, 2022, and married on September 23, 2023. They both changed their last names to Bell in honor of Dean's late mother.

Caelynn grew up in Fredericksburg, Virginia, and attended Virginia Commonwealth University, where she got her degree in broadcast journalism. She was named Miss North Carolina in 2018 and was the first runner-up at Miss USA. But Caelynn is not your typical beauty queen. She once flew to Japan for a first date! Luckily, she'll only have to travel to the Bachelor mansion to meet Colton.
