Plus, her other big Bachelor encounters!

HollywoodLife.com reporter Kirstin Benson had a change of heart March 5 at OK! Magazine and Keri Hilson‘s pre-Oscars bash at Beso in Hollywood. Not only did meeting Vienna Girardi change Kirstin’s opinion of her (she “couldn’t believe how sweet [Vienna] was!”) but she also got a new perspective on things after running into former contestants Ed Swiderski, Jillian Harris and Kiptyn Locke.

At first, she spotted Ed and Jillian on the red carpet, but they declined an interview because it was cold and they wanted to get into the party. Then, about an hour later, she spotted Ed, Jillian AND Kiptyn (the guy who Jillian totally crushed when she chose Ed) hanging out together in the VIP section. What a wild card! Believe it or not, they’re all actually friends! Ed and Kiptyn would chat, then Ed would strike up conversation with someone else and Jillian and Kiptyn would break it down together. Yes, they actually danced with each other! The three of them seemed like they were all laid back and old friends.

At one point Jillian (who took off her shoes and is surprisingly short) was chatting with Jake Pavelka and Vienna Girardi. It looked like they were sharing stories and laughing… a lot. Was Jillian giving them advice?

Kiptyn was later spotted chatting with a tiny unidentifiable blond, probably in her late 20s, for about 10 minutes. But other than that, he seemed totally and completely single. Jillian had Ed; Jake had Vienna; and Kiptyn had…no one. Sad.

We’ll take you, Kiptyn!!

I have to agree with getbacktowork. Jake is kind of a dork. It will be interesting to see how it goes for them.

Yeah, you gotta give props to Jake for seeing she was good in spite of what the other girls in the house were saying about her

Vienna is a good person, just people need to sell their fake stories. Vienna is young and does have alot to learn, but out of all the girls in the house she was the only one that showed her true side and Jake saw that.

Vienna is nice?? Wow. Maybe they just did fancy editing to make her the bad girl that nobody liked. Nice to hear that she’s likeable after all!

OMG! I love all of these people! I’m surprised, but glad to hear that Vienna is nice. Kiptyn is soooo cute. He won’t be single for long.

I would like to officially offer myself to fill the position of Kiptyn’s girlfriend. I am not a tiny blond, but I am all his!
