Jacqueline Trumbull and Jordan Mauger didn’t find love together on the beach, but they did find it in the desert!
Though the pair were both contestants on Season 5 of Bachelor in Paradise, they never crossed paths while on the show. In fact, Jacqueline only made a brief appearance and did not date anybody. Jordan, on the other hand, showed up a few weeks later and ended up dating Cassandra Ferguson for a short while, but their love clearly didn’t last.
While we’re not sure how Jacqueline and Jordan connected — though it probably had something to do with both being a part of Bachelor Nation — the new pair showed off their love on social media while at the Burning Man festival in Nevada earlier this month.
“More desert people than beach people I guess,” Jacqueline captioned a photo of the pair on Instagram.
Jordan also shared a photo of the duo kissing and even posted a picture of them following the festival at a New York Yankees game. “I think this qualifies getting to 3rd base?” he wrote in the caption.
Jacqueline was a contestant on Arie Luyendyk Jr.’s season of The Bachelorette and Jordan, who is Australian, was on Bachelor Winter Games. He had a brief fling with Bibiana Julian, but their love did not last long.
In fact, the couple is not the only post-Paradise pair to give things a shot off the beach. Angela Amezcua, who dated Eric Bigger while on the show, is now dating former Bachelorette star Clay Harbor.
“What do the kids call it? Woman crush Wednesday? Welp here’s mine,” Clay wrote on Instagram earlier this month.
Romance is definitely always in the air whenever Bachelor Nation contestants are around!
