9. The Moment Carly Fell in Love
These two didn’t have a ‘love at first sight’ kind of romance. In fact, Carly turned down the erectile dysfunction specialist several times before finally admitting she had feelings for him. In an interview with Glamour, she pinpointed the exact moment things changed. “The hospital date…He had two infections, actually. There were no cameras, and it felt like I was dating in normal life. We started getting this connection, and I remember sitting in the car on the way back and thinking, ‘I really want to hold his hand. What?’ And then, ‘Oh my gosh, I think I really like him. What?’ It was just this thing that was a roller coaster, and it started out where I broke up with him like five times,” she said.
8. How To Make it Work in Paradise
According to Carly Waddell, 31, the reason their relationship was able to work was because of how much time they spent just talking to each other on Bachelor in Paradise. “I think that we spent so much time getting to know each other and like stepped away from the drama, and I think that was really important for us,” she said to E! News. In an op-ed for The Hollywood Reporter, Evan echoed Carly’s accounts of how they spent their time in Paradise: “Carly and I sat on a beach for weeks talking. At first I creeped her out, but because of the time allowed to just hang after she friend-zoned me, she came to realize she not only liked my flavor of creepiness, but wanted to marry it as well!”
