Understanding that there is a lot of conversation in Bachelor Nation surrounding her relationship with Dean, the ICU nurse clears the air. She expressed, “I dated Dean, so like over 10 years ago. I think we were 18-19, so maybe 12 years ago now in college. He’s one of my first loves.”

“It’s a distant past from my experience on The Bachelor,” Windey explained later on the January 6th episode. “Clayton and I’s story, it’s very much its own thing. I’m almost really grateful that it was far in the past so I could focus more, you know, on Clayton.”

Despite their split, she still considered Dean a friend. “We both are really supportive of each other, he knew I always wanted to be a dancer. So he was really supportive of my career as Bronco’s cheerleader. He’s a huge Broncos fan.”

She continued, “Kind of like surface level, I support you, you support me, like no hard feelings.”

Also expressing that she’s happy for her ex and his girlfriend Caelynn Miller-Keyes, “There so well-loved in Bachelor Nation as they should be, I’m so happy for him and don’t want anything but good things for the both of them.”
