Welp, cross Taylor Nolan and Derek Peth off the “Successful Couples from The Bachelor” list.
After falling in love on Bachelor in Paradise and getting engaged on the after-show last summer, the duo have decided to call off their relationship — and right before the new season airs too!
“It is with much sadness that we have decided to end our engagement. We put everything we could into our relationship and are heartbroken to go forward separately, but we know this is the best decision for the both of us,” they said in a joint statement to E! News. “We will still be present in each other’s lives with support, admiration and respect for each other.”
The exes tried to maintain a long distance relationship, with Peth in New York City and Nolan in Seattle. But it looks like the two are ending things are good terms.
Hopefully there will be a new love connection on Season 5 of the summer spin-off.
