The Bachelorette just keeps heating up. After it was revealed that Rachel Lindsay had a past connection to one of her contestants, Fred, another shocking Bachelor nation connection has been revealed.
Warning: Major Bachelorette spoilers below.
According to Accept This Rose, the winner of Rachel Lindsay’s season of The Bachelorette has dated a member of the franchise in the past, and she is not keeping quiet about her feelings for Rachel’s new fiance.
The report reveals that Rachel Lindsay’s Season 13 winner is Dr. Bryan Abasolo, a Miami-based chiropractor. Bryan, who has already made quite the impression on Rachel and the fans, is said to be the lucky man Rachel chose to give her final rose to. Viewers may remember that Bryan not only won the first impression rose from Lindsay, but was also the first contestant to steal a kiss from the Bachelorette.
Now, new details about Bryan Abasolo’s past are emerging, like his well-known ex-girlfriend, Jubilee Sharpe. Many fans may remember Jubilee as a contestant on Ben Higgins season of The Bachelor. While it seems that the two didn’t have a very serious relationship, or a long lasting romance, Jubilee seems to be harboring some sort of bitterness towards Bryan as she recently called him out on Twitter for his kissing techniques.
“Bryan, please take notes from Dean. Now THAT’S a kiss,” Jubilee wrote, bashing Abasolo’s lip locks with Rachel Lindsay.
Fans on Twitter know that Bryan has often been criticized for the way his kisses, and it seems that Jubilee Sharpe is in agreement with the tweeters. However, Rachel doesn’t seem to mind the messy kisses, calling Bryan’s first night kiss one of the hottest she’s ever had.
Reality Steve revealed that Bryan and Jubilee’s relationship wasn’t serious, but that it was pretty recent, which could raise some eyebrows for Bachelor fans.
“It’s not like it was a long term thing, or they were on the verge of marriage or anything, but I can confirm to you that Bryan and Jubilee did have a thing that was somewhat recent.”
While Bryan Abasolo is said to be engaged to Rachel Lindsay after winning her heart during The Bachelorette Season 13, Jubilee Sharpe appeared on Bachelor in Paradise Season 3 looking for love. While fans were wondering if Jubilee would be returning to Paradise for Season 4, her name was not announced during the cast reveal earlier this month.
Meanwhile, there are a ton of new recruits headed to Bachelor in Paradise for Season 4. Hollywood Life reported that Raven Gates, Corinne Olympios, Alexis Waters, Lacey Mark, Kristina Schulman, Taylor Nolan, Jasmine Goode, and Danielle Maltby will all appear on the show after being dumped by Season 21 Bachelor, Nick Viall. Derek Peth, Nick Benvenutti, Robby Hayes, Alex Woytkiw, and Vinny Ventiera have all moved on from JoJo Fletcher and will be looking to mingle with the ladies during Season 4.
Of course, a couple of men from Rachel Lindsay’s season of The Bachelorette will also be in attendance for Bachelor in Paradise Season 4. Dean Unglert, who is said to make it to Rachel’s final four will reportedly be announced after his on-air break up with Lindsay, and DeMario Jackson, who famously got busted by his girlfriend while competing for Rachel’s heart during Season 13, is seemingly single again and looking to hook up in Mexico. Amanda Stanton will also appear after her rocky break up with Josh Murray.
It seems that fans of The Bachelorette and Bachelor in Paradise have a lot to look forward to this summer. While viewers are watching Rachel Lindsay fall in love with her current fiance, they’ll also be hoping that some of their favorite cast-offs can find love as well.
