All the Clues Brendan and Pieper Were Dating Before 'Bachelor in Paradise' Season 7

In Bachelor in Paradise, the course of love never runs smooth—but Brendan Morais has had a particularly hard time on the ABC show.

The contestant from Clare and Tayshia's season of The Bachelorette has been coupling up with Natasha Parker in Paradise, but has had to deal with rumors that before the show started he was dating Pieper James from Matt's season of The Bachelor.

Just as Brendan was able to convince Natasha that things between him and Pieper were casual, BiP pulled a producing masterstroke and brought Pieper to Paradise.

While the pair have not yet revealed exactly how well they knew each other outside the show (which streams on Hulu), Bachelor Nation has been uncovering some clues.

Us Weekly was the first outlet to report that the couple were together, reporting that they had been seen getting closer in Boston, where Brendan lives, and in New York.

The Bachelor Reddit featured photographic evidence of the pair hanging out together. A fan of the franchise posted a picture of herself with the pair in Boston over the Memorial Day weekend.

Before that, an eagle-eyed Bachelor Reddit user had found clues that both of them released Instagram photos from the same place around the same time.

Are Brendan and Pieper Still Together?

Not only were they spotted together before the show, but the pair have been spotted since filming Bachelor in Paradise.

On September 6, the Bachelorettewindmill dropped an Instagram story that featured the pair together in a coffee shop in Boston.

Brendan, meanwhile, was fanning the flames of fans who have turned against him as they feel he has been lying to Natasha. He captioned his latest Instagram post, "here for the wrong reasons."

Pieper also seemed to be trolling fans when she captioned her Insta, "All's fair in love and war."

What Has Natasha Said About Pieper and Brendan?

As details of Pieper and Brendan's prior relationship began to be revealed on Bachelor in Paradise, Natasha was tweeting her reactions—and retweeting some choice words about the man she gave her rose to in the previous episode.
