But, all of that went in vain when Vempati decided to call off her engagement and not get married to Chatterjee on the wedding day, as seen in the show’s season finale on Friday, March 4, 2022.
While walking away from Chatterjee at the altar, she said, “I deserve somebody who knows for sure. So I’m choosing myself and I’m going to say no.”
After the season finale aired and their breakup was seen by everyone, Vempati’s brother and his wife made a joint Instagram post in which they criticized Chatterjee and mentioned how proud they are of Deepti for walking away from that relationship.
One paragraph from that statement read, “We wish you didn’t pick that [clown] but despite his childishness, you carried yourself with grace and continued to see the good in people. We’re so damn proud to call you our baby sister, and know we’re there for you always.”
Apart from Chatterjee, Vempati was recently linked to Salvador Perez, aka Sal, a fellow contestant on the dating show. He was matched with Mallory Zapata, but they split on the wedding day.
Vempati and Perez’s decision not to settle down with their match was one reason behind their dating speculation. And the other was a cozy selfie Vempati shared with Perez on her Instagram story while on a cast trip in Las Vegas – wearing matching blazers and writing “UnShakable Vibes.”

But despite fans’ eagerness to see the two together, it was halted when Vempati addressed those rumors during an appearance on The Viall Files podcast.

Afterward, she mentioned that she is currently working on herself and then took a dig at the dating rumors by saying, “I think it’s funny – the speculations.”
