What Is Josh Murray Doing Now? The Former 'Bachelor In Paradise' Contestant Is Still Looking For Love
As it goes for most former members of Bachelor Nation, Josh Murray has been a busy man since getting engaged on the franchise twice and breaking up with both women. Earlier this year, Murray split with his Bachelor in Paradise fiance Amanda Stanton. And what Josh Murray is doing now is looking for love again, according to a recent interview with Hinge. "I one hundred percent want a family, I want to settle down. I want that whole deal there," he said, according to a video of the chat.
Murray sat down with comedian Jared Freid to discuss what he looks for in a girl when he uses dating apps and why he uses Hinge. Speaking on his experience with apps, Murray revealed that he prefers to use Hinge because it's "not just about hooking up with someone." So it seems Murray is single and willing to mingle.
On Aug. 13, Murray posted a photo to his Instagram account, celebrating his 33rd birthday with famous friends Nastia Lukin and Shawn Johnson in Los Angeles. "As we grow up, we realize it becomes less important to have a ton of friends and more important to have real ones," he wrote in the caption. "From new friends to old friends, I am thankful for all of you and love you very much." He also posted photos of himself riding a bike, meditating, and hanging out with friends in Cabo San Lucas, Mexico.
Back in 2014, Murray appeared on season 10 of The Bachelorette, where he walked away with Andi Dorfman's final rose and was engaged to her after just eight weeks. Nine months later, the couple called off their engagement, and Dorfman has since alleged that Murray was verbally abusive to her throughout their relationship.
Following his stint on The Bachelorette, Murray appeared on Bachelor in Paradise, where he dated fellow contestant Amanda Stanton. Once the show's season finale aired in September 2016, both former contestants announced that they were engaged, but they split up a few months later.
Though his Bachelor franchise relationships didn't work out, Murray is still looking to give love another try.
