Bachelor in Paradise is just a few days away and there’s already drama!
Jared Haibon proposed to Ashley Iaconetti while filming for the fifth season of Bachelor in Paradise in Mexico right in front of her ex Kevin Wendt from Bachelor Winter Games.
Bachelor producer Rob Mills discussed the proposal with The Ringer’s Juliet Litman on her podcast, and according to their recap, the proposal “threw [Kevin] for a loop.”
Ashley and Kevin won the Bachelor Winter Games and dated for a few months after filming wrapped. Their break up came as a shock to the Bachelor Nation.
“It sounds a little harsh, but it’s just that lack of — there’s magic,” Ashley explained on her Almost Famous podcast about her break up with Kevin. “We get along very well, it’s just, there’s a little something missing and you can’t really pinpoint what it is. That’s just how I feel.”
