Bachelor Contestant Danielle Maltby is Dating Big Brother Housemate Paulie Calaforie!
Love is blooming between Paulie Calaforie, a former member of the Big Brother house, and Danielle Maltby, a denizon of the Bachelor mansion. Danielle Maltby was on Nick Viall's season of The Bachelor while Paulie Calaforie was on season 18 of Big Brother, airing in 2016. Paulie had his own showmance back then with castmate Zakiyah Everette.
Paulie got a lot of backlash for how he treated Zakiyah during the show, even helping to get her kicked out of the house. Despite the despicable way Paulie treated Zakiyah, she told Julie Chen that she thought the relationship could work. How sweet. It didn't.
Meanwhile, the new lovebirds revealed their romance on Monday, January 29th via Instagram. The pair each posted a possibly wedding themed photo with long stemmed calla lillies and snapshots of the happy couple in it. Calaforie even captioned the photo, “Wedding Season!”
Right Time, Right Place?
In addition to her appearance on this season of The Bachelor, Maltby also attended Bachelor in Paradise where she shared a kiss or two with Bachelorette alumnus Wells. Wells appeared on Rachel Lindsey's season and then appeared in Bachelor in Paradise, first as a contestant and then as the bartender.
Wells went on the record endorsing the pair's relationship. That might be easy from his high perch, though, since he's currently dating actress Sarah Hyland. Former Bachelor Nick Viall has also somehow snagged actress Jennifer Jones, so this new couple has some competition for ratings.
Danielle claims to approve of Wells' new relationship, telling US Magazine, “I'm so happy for him.”
Paulie and Danielle say they are deeply in love. Let's just hope Paulie doesn't kick Danielle out of this house the way he dumped Zakiyah to the Big Brother curb.
