The Bachelor 16’s Jamie Otis has a new Ben in her life, Life & Style is reporting — Ready For Love star Ben Patton! And what’s more, the two have a ton in common: They’re both brunet cuties, both work in the healthcare industry, and both failed to find love on reality television. Practically a match made in heaven.
So just how did the NYC-based Jamie meet Texas hospital CEO Ben? Ummm on Facebook, the greatest matchmaker of the modern age. “He friended me on Facebook. So 21st century of him. From there, we started chatting and we’ve been actively talking,” Jamie tells the magazine.
Although Ben proposed to his matchmaker-chosen lady, Angela Zapotek, on the RFL finale, things didn’t work out, and the two broke up before it ever aired. Jamie vied for Ben Flajnik’s love on The Bachelor before being eliminated in Episode 6.
“I was never really into him,” Jamie says of the other Ben, who ended up choosing Courtney Robertson in the finale, before the two of them eventually broke up as well. “We’re two different people. I like him as a person, but it was never there.”
Next, Jamie appeared on Bachelor Pad 3, where she had a short showmance with Chris Bukowski before he, too, moved on to someone(s) else.
So, what makes these two reality TV alumni think things will work out? “He owns a hospital, so we joke about that,” Jamie spills. “He tells me I’m so good with patients and with him, I’d always have a place to work!”
Uh, that’s one way to find a job... We’re happy for Jamie and Ben and hope that things pick up for them. Maybe producers of Ready For Love, which was canceled moments after it began, shouldn’t have spent so much time trying to not be The Bachelor. Especially if the perfect girl for the RFL star was there in the ABC casting department archives all along...
