Newly-Single Kaitlyn Bristowe Has A Date With Bachelor Nation Fave
Kaitlyn Bristowe has only been publicly single for two months, and she already has a date with Bachelor Nation fave Jason Tartick. Some people are just blessed.
Kaitlyn’s three-year engagement to Shawn Boothe ended in November after Shawn won Kaitlyn’s season of The Bachelorette in 2015. It was a super boring season of The Bachelorette because from the second Shawn got the first impression rose on night one, we all knew he was going to win and we really just kept watching to see how long it would take for the other guys to notice that they were basically sitting ducks. The season even had to bring back human Chia pet Nick Viall as a ringer because it was going so poorly for the other guys.
Jason asked Kaitlyn out on her Off the Vine podcast on Tuesday, and a ~source~ told E! News that the Bachelor alums are actually going out this weekend.
It sounds like the possible new couple has been flirting for a while. Kaitlyn, always a bold b*tch, asked Jason live on air if he was ever going to ask her out. He then responded in an annoyingly bro-ish way: “I mean if we’re both going to be in the same city at the same time I see no reason why we shouldn’t go to dinner or grab drinks.”
Okay, Jason, show some initiative. What was he going to do if he got tapped to be the Bachelor this season? “Uh, I mean, I see no reason why you shouldn’t accept this rose.” Get it together, Jason, we’re all rooting for you.
Once Kaitlyn accepted Jason’s invite, though, he got super cute and gushed, “My heart is racing over here, my beats per minute are off the chain.” It looks like in 2019, podcasts are the new (and only?) way to meet cute single guys. Catch me deleting Tinder and downloading the SoundCloud app ASAP.
Reminder that Jason or his ride-or-die Blake Horstmann were way better choices to lead this year’s Bachelor season than Colton Underwood, who’s managed to make the entire season about his virginity whether he likes it or not. If I wanted to read a Seventeen advice column for hormonal teens, I would steal an issue from the kids I babysit.
Bachelor Nation is super bummed for Kaitlyn and Shawn. We really thought they were going to make it. Even the franchise’s new it-couple Ashley Iaconetti and Jared Haibon said on their podcast that Kaitlyn and Shawn’s breakup was heart-wrenching and that Ashley and Jared had looked to them as an ideal couple.
Hopefully, Jason listens to Kaitlyn’s advice to not f*ck it up, because she’s just scored the hottest rebound in Bachlor history.
