Bachelorette star Jason Tartick is thanking his lucky stars he didn’t get chosen to be the next Bachelor.
As many Bachelor Nation fans know, the 30-year-old has sparked a romance with former Bachelorette Kaitlyn Bristowe.
The pair started dating over the last few weeks and it looks like nothing is stopping their blossoming romance.
In fact, Jason appeared on Good Morning America on Monday, January 21, with Blake Horstmann and revealed he’s happy he didn’t get the gig as leading man this season.
“[If I was the Bachelor] I wouldn’t have met someone very special to me right now — Kaitlyn,” he shared.
Jason also shared the words of advice he gave Colton before his season began.
“I think the biggest advice I gave to him was stay in your lane and stay true to you and just be the Colton that we grew to [become] such close friends with,” Jason said.
Blake added, “We told him just to be himself … we really did. It was like, ‘Don’t worry about all that outside noise. We are there to support you.’ I was like, ‘Go be you [and] come back with the love of your life.’”
Jason wasn’t the only one to recently open up about this new romance. Kaitlyn has been pretty vocal about her affection for Jason on her Off The Vine podcast.
“We both feel like we’re established and where we wanna be in our lives and we have, like, the self-love and respect to actually, like, be in a mature, healthy relationship,” she said in a recent episode.
“I never thought I would hang out with somebody from The Bachelor franchise! I feel bad for saying that … I was like, ‘You know what? I’ll just be a little more private, low-key. Whatever.’ But you can’t help who you like. … You can’t fight chemistry. You can’t fight a good guy.”
Do you think these two are the real deal?! Let us know!
