Who is Salley Carson's ex-fiance?

Even though Salley's bio on ABC website states that she was previously engaged, the showrunners didn't disclose any further information about it. Luckily for us, our all-time favorite spoilers icon- Reality Steve spilled the team on Salle's engagement and the canceled wedding in a tweet on September 25. Alongside a picture of a screenshot from her wedding registry and her bachelorette part, Steve tweeted, "Hearing a ton of stuff already about these women, but this one has me floored: Salley Carson was engaged & having her bachelorette party a month ago. She was set to be married TOMORROW but the wedding was called off a couple of weeks ago. Now she’s on the Bachelor ha ha."

Avery appears to be a private person as his social media presence is very scanty. Pictures of Salley and Avery are still on her Instagram page, as well as her Facebook picture. Neither Salley nor Avery has revealed the reason behind their canceled wedding. It is unclear if the couple got back together or are still broken up. We will just have to watch the show to learn more about them.
