Michael Burns, the Matthew Fox look-alike who was sent home on the premiere of The Bachelorette Season 7, is from Providence, Rhode Island. Jackie Gordon — of The Bachelor 15 and Bachelor Pad 2 — is also from Rhode Island. Other than that, we don’t really see how they are connected. But it looks like they not only know each other well, they recently went to his sister’s wedding together, in Newport, R.I. Both tweeted pics and updates from the event.
Mike even tweeted photos that looked like they were taken out at dinner with Jackie and his mom. We’re not trying to read into this — that’s so not our style! — but what is going on? Seems like only yesterday (it was last week, actually) when Jackie was still reeling from her breakup from Ames Brown, who was on Ashley Hebert’s season with Mike and romanced Jackie on BP2. Were Jackie and Mike friends before going on their respective shows or did they meet at a reunion or something? Rhode Island is small, but not that small.
