So sad. Seemingly happy ‘Bachelor In Paradise’ couple Samantha Steffen and Nick Peterson called it quits on their relationship, according to a new report. Find out all the details here!
Oh no — say it isn’t so! There’s trouble in Bachelor In Paradise land, as Samantha Steffen, 28, and Nick Peterson, 31, have allegedly broken up, according to a shocking new report. And we thought these two would go the distance!
The pair, who began dating during the second season of the hit ABC show, just couldn’t withstand the strain of a long-distance relationship, a source told Us Weekly. “The main reason for the breakup is the distance,” the insider said. Samantha is based in Los Angeles, California, while hunky Nick is based in Tampa, Florida.
The source went on to say, as per Us Weekly, that despite splitting up, Samantha and Nick have remained amicable. Maybe there’s a chance this is still an open chapter? “There are no hard feelings. She thinks he’s a great guy,” the source continued. “She isn’t interested in seeing anyone else right now.”
So, there’s still a chance, right? We’ll be keeping our fingers crossed for these lovebirds reconciling in the near future.
Nick Peterson Says He’ll Remain Friends With Samantha Steffen Following Their Break-Up
In fact, Nick seemed more than hopeful that one day their paths may cross again, as proven by an Instagram post on Oct. 9. Sharing a photo of the hot twosome during happier times, he captioned the image, “the distance is too tough at this time. She’s an amazing girl…we’ll absolutely remain friends,” single-handedly confirming their breakup.
This latest split means that Tanner Tolbert and Jade Roper are the only remaining couple from season two still together. Earlier in the year, Ashley Salter called it quits on her romances with both Nick Peterson and Dan Cox. She is now engaged to college sweetheart, Austin Brannen.
