Will You Accept This Rose? All of the Celebs Who've Dated Former Bachelor Nation Contestants
Gigi Hadid isn't the only star who has been linked to a contestant from the franchise
Colton Underwood & Lucy Hale
Two months after splitting from Cassie Randolph, a source told PEOPLE that Colton Underwood is "very casually dating" Katy Keene actress Lucy Hale.
“They’ve hung out a few times. They are very casually dating — it’s been so complicated to date (in general) during the pandemic," the source explained, adding that they connected over social media DMs.
The pair were spotted out and about on a hike at the Paseo Miramar Trail in Los Angeles. In a photo obtained by TMZ, the two were seen walking side by side. TMZ reports that the two have been on a few "casual hike dates."
Despite reports, one day after the excursion, Hale told Entertainment Tonight that she is still single.
Victoria Fuller & Chase Rice
It's something out of a country song! Fuller, who got selected for a one-on-one date with current bachelor Peter Weber, used to date country music star Rice. It's customary on these dates for the bachelor and the girl he's with to be serenaded by a singer at the end of the night. Unfortunately for Fuller, that singer was her ex.
The entire encounter was super awkward for all involved, and Rice revealed that he “was really pissed off” because his appearance on the show was meant to be about his music.
Nick Viall & January Jones
Jones and former Bachelorette contestant-turned-Bachelor, Viall, have been flirting back and forth on Instagram since 2017. It was rumored that they were dating as well, but Jones told Entertainment Tonight, in 2018, "He’s a friend of mine. He’s super sweet. No, I’m single. But, he’s a friend of mine and tells me lots of inside scoops."
It turns out that the Spinning Out actress did accept Viall's rose. The 42-year-old revealed on Dax Shepard‘s Armchair Expert podcast that she went on “a couple dates” with the Bachelor Nation star despite insisting that their relationship was platonic.
“The thing that attracted me to Nick was he seemed like — I mean he was cast as the ‘villain’ — but he was actually, he had a bit of a brain, you know, so there was something else there,” Jones told Shepard.
Rachel Bilson & Nick Viall
Bachelor Nation fans were convinced that the Hart of Dixie star and former Bachelor were dating in the fall of 2019. Their proof? A series of flirty Instagram comments that suggested the two were more than friends.
Here's an example: They both shared photos of each other after Bilson appeared on Viall’s podcast, The Viall Files, in July. Viall joked in his caption, "Will we choose to forgo our individual rooms..." an allusion to the franchise's Fantasy Suite dates. Bilson made a joke of her own in the comments: “He slid into her…dms #sheaccepted.”
Did Bilson really accept Viall's rose? “I’m not really defining any relationships these days,” he said at an Evening with Plenty of Fish a day after their exchange. “But I do think she has a great Instagram and it is very easy to comment on her content.”
Demi Lovato & Mike Johnson
While some were hoping that Johnson would be the next Bachelor in 2020, it seems that the fan favorite wasn't so single after all.
While the two weren't shy about flirting on social media, it looks like they may have taken things up a notch at one point: A source said they were "having fun and getting to know each other." However, by October, their fling had reportedly fizzled.
Lovato first expressed interest in the 31-year-old after he was sent home on Hannah Brown's season of The Bachelorette.
Tyler Cameron & Gigi Hadid
Tyler was the runner-up on Hannah's season of The Bachelorette, and many fans were rooting for them to get back together when they found out Hannah dumped Jed after discovering he had a girlfriend when he came on the show. Hannah and Tyler even had a date night in, but he later stepped out with Gigi Hadid.
Hadid and Cameron were spotted on Aug. 4, 2019, at Soho House in Brooklyn, and reports suggested that the pair were on a date. But that's not all: They were also seen bowling with friends the next night.
After the public outings, Brown said her status with Cameron was unclear.
"I’m not really sure where things stand with us right now," she shared with Bachelor host Chris Harrison, adding that Cameron's choice to "play the field" meant he might not be in the running to be the next Bachelor.
As of early September, the stars were still "trying to navigate" their new relationship and dating in the spotlight. However, Cameron eventually moved on to a slew of other stars, most recently Kylie Jenner BFF Stassie Karanikolaou.
Sarah Hyland & Wells Adams
Chris Lane & Lauren Bushnell
Bushnell actually won Ben Higgins' season of The Bachelor, but it didn't work out for the pair and they called off their engagement. Two years later, Bushnell is now engaged to country singer Lane.
Jesse Metcalfe & Courtney Robertson
Robertson was the villain on Ben Flajnik's season of The Bachelor, often telling the other women, "I didn't come here to make friends." She walked away from the season engaged to Flajnik, but the pair parted ways when the show ended.
Robertson then dated Metcalfe from 2005 to 2007. She wrote about him in her book, I Didn't Come Here to Make Friends: Confessions of a Reality Show Villain, saying that he was "passionate but a total mess." Ouch.
Robertson also had a fling with Adrian Grenier and wrote all about the Entourage star's impressive ... erm, assets.
Colton Underwood & Aly Raisman
Chase McNary & Tomi Lahren
McNary was the runner-up on JoJo's season of The Bachelorette, but after his stint on the show he ended up dating conservative pundit Lahren. It wasn't anything serious, McNary said of the fling.
Ben Flajnik & Jennifer Love Hewitt
Before Flajnik went on to be The Bachelor, he came in second on Ashley Hebert's season of The Bachelorette and caught the eye of Hewitt. She sent a flirty tweet his way and the pair met — though Hewitt insisted that it was totally by coincidence.
Robby Hayes & Scheana Shay
What do you get when reality television stars collide? Hayes and Shay's short-lived romance. The Bachelorette season 12 runner-up and Vanderpump Rules star dated for a few months in 2018 and even shared a gorgeous Hawaiian vacation. Hayes also appeared on an episode of Vanderpump Rules.
