New couple alert! Following their time on ‘Bachelor In Paradise,’ HollywoodLife has EXCLUSIVELY learned that JJ Lane and Ashley Iaconetti have been spending time together! So, are they actually dating?
On the upcoming season of Bachelor in Paradise, which premieres on Aug. 2, JJ Lane and Ashley Iaconetti will both attempt to find love. However, the two have actually started hanging out together– but only since filming has wrapped, HollywoodLife has learned EXCLUSIVELY. The news of the budding romance is somewhat surprising, considering the two didn’t get off on the best foot. In fact, in her preshow interview, Ashley actually admitted to being totally grossed out by JJ!
“They started spending time together after filming,” an inside source revealed to us EXCLUSIVELY as to when JJ and Ashley began their romance. “It’s not really out there because it’s so new, but they are really into each other,” added the source.
That bit of information is basically a complete 180 from Ashley’s initial impression of JJ, which she willingly shared in an online interview. “I think JJ from Kaitlyn‘s season is repulsive,” she says with a giggle in the clip below. Oh, and to add insult to injury, Ashley clarifies that she means JJ is repulsive “inside. And I don’t think he’s very attractive on the outside, either.”
Well, well, well, how much can change in a mere matter of months! It seems that when Bachelor in Paradise does premiere, though, Ashley won’t hold onto those negative feelings about JJ for long. “JJ and Ashley were always very flirty [on Bachelor in Paradise], but things went to a whole new level when the show ended,” our source revealed to us.
Well, there’s a thin line between love and lust (that’s a thing that people say, right?). What do you think of Ashley and JJ getting together? Do you think they might make a cute couple?
