After her chance at winning $250,000 was crushed during Bachelor Pad 3, “Superfan” Paige Vigil opted to try her shot at love, joining 25 other women as they vied for Sean Lowe’s heart on Season 17 of The Bachelor.

Yet while it’s already been rumored that Paige doesn’t make it far in the competition (in fact, we hear she gets sent home on the first night!) the comely, brunette isn’t shedding any tears these days.

In fact, we hear that Paige, who lives in Minneapolis and works at red-hot Internet company Appmosphere, is already smitten with a new beau. Judging from her Twitter account, all signs point to a tall, dark, hunk named Lance DeGroot.

“He’s her boyfriend,” a source confirms to Wetpaint Entertainment. “They were actually introduced by a mutual friend before she left to film The Bachelor, but it wasn’t until she got back that they really had a chance to get to know each other.  Like her, he works online — as a senior marketing analyst. It’s still fairly new but they’re really into each other.”

And these days, she has no regrets about not getting a rose. “In the short time she got to know him, she grew to really respect Sean,” the source adds. “They didn’t have a connection, but she hopes everything turned out the way he wanted. Her love life, in the meantime, is going great.”
