If there’s one thing we know about people who have appeared as contestants throughout “The Bachelor” franchise, it’s that they love to mix and mingle— and it looks like Kaitlyn Bristowe and Jason Tartick are the latest and greatest couple to come out of the hit show.
Jason Tartick confirmed the rumors that he and Kaitlyn Bristowe are an item during an interview with Access. Fans will recall that Bristowe was the season 11 Bachelorette while Jason Tartick was a fan-favorite contestant featured on Becca Kufrin’s season.
The news of their relationship comes just months after Kaitlyn announced her split from Shawn Booth in November. The two got engaged in 2015.
“After three incredible years, we have decided to go our separate ways. This difficult decision comes after thoughtful, respectful consideration. Even though we are parting as a couple, we’re very much committed to remaining friends. We have both evolved as people, which is taking us in different directions, but with the hope that we will continue to support each other in new ways,” they said in a statement.
Kaitlyn later went into more detail about their decision to separate, saying, “I want to reiterate to people, what you saw on social media was real and what we had was real love. But when it comes to roadblocks, and those fundamental values and getting through thing together, I just don’t think we were on the same page—and it’s painful to admit that,” she said. “But you need that foundation and you need that partnership if it’s going to last forever.”
