Who did Demi Burnett get engaged to on Bachelor in Paradise?

While Burnett first appeared on The Bachelor franchise as a contestant on Colton Underwood‘s season, the 26-year-old is best remembered for her time on BIP season 6.

The openly bisexual reality star’s relationship with her girlfriend and eventual fiancée Kristian Haggerty on the summer spinoff made them the first same-sex couple in franchise history.

Demi’s relationship with ex-girlfriend, Haggerty, was the first same-sex one to be featured on any show in the Bachelor franchise.

The couple appeared on The Ellen DeGeneres Show, where the talk show host praised them for their bravery.

But, just a few months after getting engaged on the Paradise finale, the two ended their relationship in October 2019.

Who else has Demi dated?

Derek Peth

After being eliminated by Underwood in week 6 of The Bachelor, Burnett turned to BiP to find love and hooked up with contestant Derek Peth.

Still, Burnett’s relationship with Peth was short-lived and without drama after revealing she still had feelings for a woman who identifies as fluid.

Burnett eventually broke it off with Peth so the woman she had been dating at home could join the show.

Slater Davis

A few months after her breakup with Haggerty, Burnett started dating a 25-year-old musician Slater Davis.

The BIP star went public with her new boyfriend telling ET at the time; she’s “never been happier in my life.”

“I’m so happy. I’m obsessed with him. He’s the best ever. I feel like such a weird little sap, but he’s the most incredible person I’ve ever met, and I can’t get enough of him,” Burnett told the outlet in February 2020.

The couple started dating after being introduced by Burnett’s good friend and fellow Bachelor alum, Katie Morton. 

“I was like, ‘Oh no… he’s so hot,'” Burnett remembered.

“Then we just literally got obsessed with each other in the day that we met. We haven’t spent a day apart since. We’re with each other all the time.

“We’re just happy and I can’t get enough of him. I never want to be not around him. I feel like such a weirdo because I’m not like this normally, but I’m just obsessed with him,” she told the outlet.

“I just love Demi’s brain the most, how she operates, what she thinks, says, feels,” Davis told ET. “That’s the hottest thing about her, honestly.”

However, their fiery was short-lived as Burnett and Davis officially broke things off in the summer of 2020.

Burnett and Slater were together for only a month before people started quarantining for the coronavirus, but they ultimately decided to stay together.

During her Big Demi Energy podcast, she explained how her relationship went sour during quarantine.

“Being with somebody who you just met like, a month ago, and then spending every single day together, both of us going stir-crazy and not being ourselves, not doing our normal routines, it really gets to people,” she said.

“I love him, I’m crazy about him, he’s wonderful, and it’s just been really hard,” she said.

“It’s toxic on every level, whenever you get to that point where you’re questioning everything each other’s doing. It’s a trust thing.”

After her relationship with Davis, Burnett has been off the radar until her recent appearance on the season 7 premiere of BiP.
