Kiptyn Locke and Tenley Molzahn found love in a hopeless place on Bachelor Pad 1. Tenley lost Jake Pavelka to Vienna Girardi on The Bachelor Season 14, and Kiptyn was also the runner-up on his Bachelorette season, losing Jillian Harris to Ed Swiderski. Then, in a charming turn of events, Tenley and Kiptyn bonded in the Bachelor Pad hot tub — falling into a relationship that far outlasted their exes’ love journeys. But lately, it seems things have fizzled out for Kipten; the constantly affectionate couple seems to have cooled on their social media PDA. Is Kipten dunzo?
All signs point to.... Definitely maybe. Tenley and Kiptyn haven’t been photographed together since New Year’s Eve 2012, after which Tenley’s Instagram became a stream of contemplative quotes and photos. “The roots of happiness are simple. When you're feeling a bit off track, remember to do these things,” Tenley wrote on January 9, 2013, tweeting this photo. Kiptyn, for his part, has replaced photos of Tenley with photos of his BFF Roberto Martinez, and seems to be turning to his bros to mend his maybe-broken heart. In fact, on March 22, 2013, Michael Stagliano tweeted, “Headed down to SD today for an afternoon with @Kiptyn. Happy face!” Definitely no mention of Tenley there...
Another pretty telling moment? When Tenley RT’d Kiptyn’s birthday tweet. “How much surfing, diving, paddling, swimming & hiking can 1 man do in 30 days? About to find out,” Kiptyn tweeted on March 12. Tenley responded, “So happy fishy!” Kiptyn then replied, “Thank you Ten! :)” We may not be mind readers, but if these two were in fact still together, they wouldn’t be exchanging such pleasantries on Twitter — they’d be doing it in person.
What do you think? After looking at Tenley and Kiptyn’s Instagram and Twitter feeds, do you agree with our hunch that they’ve split? Or, do you think they’re just opting to keep their relationship private?
