Former Bachelor star Rachel Lindsay is weighing in on the latest breakups that rocked Bachelor Nation. As reported recently, two couples from Bachelor Winter Games have called it quits. While Lindsay expected Clare Crawley and Benoit Beausejour-Savard's split, she didn't see Dean Unglert and Lesley Murphy's break up coming.

"I definitely saw it because I just felt like... You start fantasizing about things and you don't think about how they work in the real world. I never thought Clare and Benoit were going to work," Lindsay said during her visit to Ben Higgins' and Ashley Iaconetti's Almost Famous podcast.

Crawley first appeared on The Bachelor season 18, where she ended up as Juan Pablo Galavis' runner-up. She later joined the first and second season of Bachelor in Paradise before joining Bachelor Winter Games. She initially hit it off with The Bachelorette Canada's Beausejour-Savard, whom she made out with on the premiere episode. However, she realized she just didn't feel the same way as he did so the Canadian star decided to leave. She later accepted a rose from Germany's Christian Rauch but the pair parted ways as well. 

After filming of the winter spin-off, however, Crawley and Beausejour-Savard reconnected and started a relationship. The couple got engaged during the Worlds Tell All reunion, much to the surprise of their co-stars and fans. In a joint statement social media, they revealed that they have called off their engagement.

As for the latter couple, Lindsay thought they were suited for each other. 

"I actually thought they were a really good match for each other. I thought that they had a lot of the same interests--like personalities that meshed really well together--and I thought they were going to work out," Lindsay said of Murphey and Unglert, who competed for her on The Bachelorette season 13.

Unglert, who also appeared on the third season of Bachelor in Paradise, and Murphy, who first competed for Sean Lowe on The Bachelor season 17, met and fell in love on Bachelor Winter Games. During the World Tells All reunion special, Unglert got down on one knee to ask Murphy to move in with him. Recently, it was reported that the pair has parted ways. Both stars took to social media to somewhat address the issue.

It's a bit strange to feel the need to post about this, but I don't think I can honestly resume my normal programming (✈️🏖🏕) without giving you an explanation - and maybe that's the wrong word, but I just wanted to thank y'all for the love and respect you've shown me over the past few days. I spent 5 years away from Bachelor Nation as I lived abroad and traveled for work. I came back to Winter Games because I've seen this franchise work miracles before. Through The Bachelor and my journey around the world, I have made deep connections, true meaningful intimate relationships with many walks of life. I know it's imperative to find someone who chooses us and acknowledges our many layers, who can be open and vulnerable, and most importantly, who is ready. To meet someone and be met. To be chosen and to choose. To love and to be loved. This is everything. All we need is that same energy reciprocated, and despite how open and loving you attempt to be, people can only meet you as deeply as they've met themselves. Don't be afraid to be the one that loved the most and give everything you had, because you've got to find people who love like you do and who are ready. Out with the old, in with the ᴛʀᴜᴇ. It was a long winter, and I'm excited for a new season🌱🌸🌻🌷Let the spring cleaning commence. I'm ready.

Meanwhile, Lindsay didn't just share her sentiments on the Bachelor Winter Games couples. She also threw some shade at Bachelor star Arie Luyendyk Jr. , saying, "He's planning this future with her when she has these doubts. You don't have to say a harsh no but maybe like, 'Oh my gosh. This is all of a sudden. Let's think about it.'"

"I just don't believe in building people up just to bring them down when you know you're not sure on what you want to do. A.K.A. Arie," she added.
