What Happened To Connor Saeli From The Bachelorette?

Connor Saeli was one of the handsome, eligible bachelors who wooed Hannah Brown during Season 15 of "The Bachelorette." While he charmed viewers, he did not walk away with Hannah's final rose. Some time has passed since Connor was on reality television, and fans are curious about what happened to him after the show.

While he was on "The Bachelorette," Connor had viewers swooning after he left sweet notes around Hannah's room while she was sick, per Twitter. ""It was super sweet for him to take that time to show me how much he cares. I loved it," Hannah gushed. The two reconnected once Hannah felt a little better, and he did get a rose, as noted by Marie Claire. Alas, Connor did not end up with Hannah's final rose. 

As Us Weekly shared, Connor joined Season 6 of "Bachelor in Paradise" to try to find love again, but that wasn't successful either. Connor connected with Caelynn Miller-Keyes when he arrived in paradise, per Refinery29, but she left with Dean Unglert after he returned and swept her off her feet. Connor had then hoped to develop a romance with Whitney Fransway, but he decided to leave the resort right before she got there. Knowing this, Whitney left the show to pursue Connor, and the two dated for a while. Ultimately, they determined it wasn't meant to be. "To be honest, the whole 'Paradise' and 'Bachelorette' situation as a whole, to me, was a little heartbreaking," Connor admitted to Us Weekly in 2019. 

So, what is Connor doing now?

Connor Saeli is still looking for love, but keeping plenty busy

Former "The Bachelorette" contestant Connor Saeli returned to reality television when he was romantically linked to Rachel Bradshaw of "The Bradshaw Bunch," E! Online shared. Rachel and Connor seemingly didn't date for long, though. In addition, it was rumored he was dating Madi Prewett from Peter Weber's season of "The Bachelor," per Life & Style. They spent time together, but as E! Online detailed, Madi quickly squashed those rumors in an Instagram live.

Connor didn't find his future wife via "The Bachelorette" or other reality television shows, but he did walk away with a serious, lasting bromance. During a September 2020 episode of the "Almost Famous" podcast with Ashley Iaconetti and Ben Higgins, former "The Bachelorette" contestant Mike Johnson dished out the details. Mike also appeared on Hannah Brown's season and roomed with Connor while filming, and the two decided to become roommates in Austin, Texas. "Connor lives in Dallas. I live in San Antonio, but my family is from Dallas, so I would always go up to Dallas and Connor and I would always try to kick it," Mike explained. They made it official in an August 2020 Instagram post, and a June Instagram post from Mike suggests it's going well.

Professionally, Connor most recently has focused on launching Waterboy, a hydration powder product. He may not have received the final rose on "The Bachelorette," but Connor seems to be doing pretty well for himself these days regardless.
