As the gossip-savvy Bachelor fan will likely remember, Courtney famously dated actor Jesse Metcalfe for a short time back in 2005. (Yes, Jesse Metcalfe. As in Eva Longoria’s sexy boy toy gardener on Desperate Housewives.)
So what’s Jesse up to these days? Is he sitting at home nursing a broken heart now that his ex has found the love of her life on national TV? Not really. Jesse has been in a relationship with actress Cara Santana for over two years, and the couple announced their engagement as recently as January 2012.
For those of you keeping track at home, that might be almost two months earlier Courtney and Ben’s engagement was made public — but it’s actually a few months after the final episode was taped in November.
In any case, both the newly-engaged couples look totally adorable together. But if you had to pick a hotter pair, which of these two would be your favorite?
