The former Bachelorette contestant appeared on DeAnna Pappas Stagliano‘s Season 4. During the podcast, he revealed he dated Chrishell before and after he appeared on the show.

“I met Chrishell and fell in love. I was like, ‘This is the most adult relationship I’ve ever been in’…even now,” he said.

Despite an “incredible” relationship, they parted ways.

“Unfortunately for me, she was approached by The Bachelor to do the show,” he explained, adding that they “hadn’t been dating long” and that she wasn’t selected ultimately.

“I gotta give Chrishell all the credit in the world. She came to me — and I don’t know if it broke any kind of legal agreement — but she said, ‘Look, this is what’s going on in my life. I feel like this is what’s best for me and I want to pursue this avenue if it comes for me.’ And I wished her well!”

“‘Hey, I totally understand. We just met. We’ve only been dating a very short period of time. If it doesn’t work out, maybe we’ll see each other again,’” he continued.

“What’s the play there? That I get mad at her and I send her off pissed off so she never talks to me again?” he explained.

“For me, in my life, of course I’m going to fall hard for her. But you know, she was very open when we started dating. She was coming off of a really bad experience with someone in New York and she was very open about her expectations of our relationship. She was very strong-willed in her communication about, ‘Hey, this is where I’m at and if you’re okay with that, I would love to spend time with you. But if not, I totally get it — you have to do what’s best for you.’ So when we had that conversation, I didn’t have any legs to stand on outside of saying, ‘Hey, I wish you the best,’” he continued to explain, adding that he appreciated her being “very honest and very caring. And she was very sweet about it.”

“I don’t like uncomfortable conversations, and to her credit, she probably doesn’t other, but she’s really good at it. So she walked away from the situation knowing that she had been honest, forthright and caring and then made me feel like, ‘Hey look, it’s not anything to do with us. We’re great.’ And obviously — I mean, we were together for like, two years after the show,” he went on to say.
