It’s easy to get so focused on the future of The Bachelor franchise and totally forget about the trauma and delights we experienced on Desiree Hartsock’s Season 9 of The Bachelorette. But we would be remiss if we didn’t at least check in on some of our favorite guys from previous seasons every once in a while,. Today’s little lookie comes in the form of some exciting news: One of Des’s louder fellas now has a lady friend to wile away his days with. Possibly on a boat?

Well, regardless of what he decides to do with his new lover, Mikey Tenerelli is a lucky guy, because according to his Facebook status update (yes, it’s really come to this in society, sadly), the Chicago boy is in a relationship with a gorgeous girl named Lauren Sabato.

The brunette babe is from Rancho Santa Fe, California, and works as an esthetician. We don’t know how they met, but perhaps it was at a Kim Kardashian look-alike contest, because the girl has it all down — from pout to eyebrows. A few shots from her profile page suggest that she works as a model as well, and that seems like a given, considering her obvious good looks.

Mikey was eliminated in Germany, after he failed to impress Des with his no-handed push-ups in the Mister America contest the week before, and couldn’t make a snow connection during a group date in the Alps.

While we’re not sure how long they’ve been dating, or if they’re doing a long-distance thing or what, the fact that they DTR’d (defined the relationship, get with it) on Facebook makes us think this isn’t too new of a thing. Last we’d heard, Mikey was hooking up with SPOILER ALERT (avert your eyes) Kylie Lewis from Juan Pablo’s season of The Bachelor, but that must’ve ended before it started, according to Reality Steve.

(SPOILERS OVER, guys.)

And just in case you were wondering, Brandon “Love is Like a Butterfly” Andreen approves of Mikey’s new love. “Much better than Dez ;) My man!” the not-at-all-still-bitter fellow cast-off commented on Mikey’s declaration.

What do you think of Mikey’s new relationship? Sound off, guys, we know you have feelings.
