Is Sarah Hyland hosting 'Bachelor in Paradise'? A look at her relationship with Wells Adams
Some contestants on 'The Bachelor' or 'The Bachelorette' get lucky and walk away into the sunset after winning over the final rose. But not everyone is that lucky.
However, there is still hope for those looking for love. While some contestants have their own seasons, others take on spin-offs like 'Bachelor in Paradise'. And while finding love on the show isn't something set in stone, it certainly puts the contestants of people's radars and, often, in their dms! In case you're wondering, yes, we are talking about Wells Adams and Sarah Hyland's adorably cute love story!
Wells Adams and Sarah Hyland are a couple that is most certainly in love and it shows. And while Adam lucked out on the show, it's safe to say that the franchise is definitely what helped him find love eventually.
Fans were first introduced to Adams when he appeared on the 12th season of 'The Bachelorette' which premiered in 2016. Back then, he was trying to win the heart of Joelle "JoJo" Fletcher, a real-estate developer. He was later eliminated during week 6 of the show. However, the radio DJ had made quite the mark and came back for the third season of 'Bachelor in Paradise', where he coupled up with Ashley Iaconetti. He was eliminated after their split. Thankfully, Adams' journey was far from over, seeing that he was back on the show yet again, but this time as the bartender for Season 4 of 'Bachelor in Paradise'.
This transition from participant to cast member caught Hyland's attention, seeing that she was a long-time fan of the franchise and had found Adams cute back when he was on 12th season of 'The Bachelorette'. She even tweeted about it back in 2017, saying "OH MY GOD @WellsAdams IS THE FRIKKIN BARTENDER?! Best. Season. Ever. #BachelorInParadise" which earned her a reply from Adams, sparking off their romance.
Adams grabbed his chance and slid into her DMs soon after, asking her out on a date. As reported by Brides, Hyland found his approach endearing. "He slid into my DMs," she explained "And I was single, obviously, and I was like, 'this is really awesome. You're being forward, and it's sexy and not aggressive. But it's very confident and sexy, and I like that." she added. After a month of texting, the two decided to meet in LA, seeing they lived quite far apart, with Adams in Nashville, Tennessee.
Their first date was a high-profile Emmy Awards after-party, but the couple was absolutely smitten by each other. Hyland even told PEOPLE that she knew that night itself that this was the man she would marry. "Our first date he asked to hold my purse while we were dancing, and I thought to myself, 'I think this is the man I'm going to marry,' " she said "It just shows how comfortable he is in his masculinity, and I really appreciated that because that has never been done for me before—by anybody. I was caught off guard by it, and it just really made me think big picture." she explained.
What followed was a whirlwind romance, with Adams finally moving in with Hyland in LA, in late 2018. The following year, Adams went ahead and sealed the deal by proposing to Hyland, who said yes. The pair were slated to tie the knot in August 2020. Although the pandemic has delayed these plans seeing that the couple has put the wedding on hold, it's clear as day that they are still very much in love. And while the wedding bells are on hold, the couple might just be here to show the lovebirds of 'Bachelor in Paradise' how it's done. Adams resumes his role as bartender of the island and is also now the Master of Ceremonies. And seeing that the show has a rotating set of hosts, Hyland is rumored to be one of them, as reported by Cosmopolitan. Hyland has openly expressed how big a fan she is of the show, so it would come as no surprise to see her alongside Adams!
