Significant other? Wes is currently single. After all, "love don't come easy."
Wes Hayden was a contestant on The Bachelorette Season 5 and Bachelor Pad Season 1. The country crooner spent most of The Bachelorette being targeted as the guy there for “the wrong reasons.” He supposedly had a girlfriend back home and was just using the show to promote his career. Bachelorette Jillian Harris dumped him thanks to a tip from future Bachelor Jake Pavelka. Jake told Jillian about Wes's alleged girlfriend, Laurel Kagay, who turns out to be the same woman once-and-future Bachelor Brad Womack dated in Austin.
Wes returned to the ABC franchise for Bachelor Pad, where he had a sweet showmance with one of Jake's Bachelor finalists, Gia Allemand. After that show, Wes went back to performing country music. He was linked to Jake's former fiance, Vienna Girardi, and he hurt Gia enough for her to slam him as “a snake who only cares about himself and uses people to try to get another 15 minutes of fame."
