It’s a match made in fan favorite heaven: Ben Flajnik’s darling Southern belle ex, Kacie Boguskie, will be a contestant on Sean Lowe’s Bachelor Season 17, according to Reality Steve. But there’s a catch: Kacie and Sean have already hung out prior to filming! Before you shout “she was planted!” from the rooftops, nothing happened between the Southern soon-to-maybe-be sweethearts when they hung out in New York in late August.

Here’s the scoop, straight from Reality Steve’s mouth fingers:

I can officially confirm Kacie Boguskie is one of the girls on Sean’s season. Makes sense. She’s always been a fan favorite and due to her strong Christian background, I’m assuming they thought she would be a good fit. And yes, Kacie got a rose the first night.

When we spoke to Kacie shortly after Ben’s season wrapped, she told us she firmly believes you can find love on The Bachelor. She also said she’s looking for a man who is equally religious — and that’s not all. Kacie told us,  “I know I want someone who has the same Christian beliefs that I do; someone that’s adventurous and fun and likes to try new things; someone who’s going to be my best friend [and] accepts me for all my little quirks and everything. Just somebody who I’m very comfortable with.”
