It wasn’t a “Bachelorette” match, but contestant DeAnna Pappas did have a wedding made in reality television heaven.
Though Stephen is a teacher, he does have reality connections.
Stephen and DeAnna, who got engaged last summer, were introduced by Stephen's twin, Michael Stagliano, and his then-girlfriend, Holly Durst.
Michael appeared on Jillian Harris' season of “The Bachelorette,” and you may recognize Holly from Matt Grant's season of “The Bachelor.”
Phew, got that?
It gets more confusing, if you want to follow along. Michael and Holly, who have since broken up, won last season of “Bachelor Pad,” which ended with a dramatic twist: The on-air announcement of Holly’s engagement to a fellow contestant… who wasn’t Michael. Drama!
That's not all: As you may recall, Pappas was rejected by Brad Womack on his first stint as “The Bachelor.” Which led to her season as “The Bachelorette.” DeAnna was engaged to contestant Jesse Csincsak for the second half of 2008.
But DeAnna's a bachelorette no longer: An onlooker told People magazine that she and new husband Stephen "were giddy with excitement" as they tied the knot.
