So, just who is the lucky lady who got to kick off the season with a little private Pabs time? That would be Kat Hurd, a 29-year-old blonde dancer from Scottsdale, Arizona . When she’s not competing for roses on The Bachelor, the University of Iowa grad is a medical device salesperson and brand new member of the Phoenix Suns dance squad. Although the NBA season kicks off on October 7, we doubt Kat will be back in time to kick and shout for the basketball team — at least, as long as she keeps JPG’s head turning.
The pair hit the friendly skies on a trip to Salt Lake City, Utah (as RS revealed last week), and their date sounds like the perfect time for a pair of athletes. The duo dressed up in neon colors and did a 5k fun run, then danced on stage and threw glow bracelets into the crowd, before heading off to do... we’re not sure what.
Why was this particular date chosen? No clue. Especially since Juan Pablo is shown in a video with a mic on stage, saying “So, Kat. I know you don’t like to run, and I hate running too…” Wait, what? Who makes someone run on a date? Were all the cliffs and tall buildings taken, or winds not strong enough to make it thrilling when they had to traverse down from terrifying heights?
