Although Jillian Harris didn’t find love on The Bachelor or The Bachelorette, she’s certainly not suffering from loneliness these days. After meeting current boyfriend Justin Pasutto, Jilly says she’s absolutely certain her search for true love is over.
Wetpaint Entertainment recently caught up with the Bachelorette beauty during The Bachelor Cocktail Party in Agoura Hills, CA, where she gave us all the details on her amazing relationship with Justin.
Despite traveling all over the place during her search for love on The Bachelorette, Jillian ironically met Justin in her hometown of Kelowna, BC. Even better? They met at a bar called “Roses.”
“His family has a cabin in Kelowna and I have a home in Kelowna. So I went out one night, and I saw him. I was just very mesmerized by his style and his stature and the way he carried himself. We just started talking, and we went on a traditional date, and the rest is history.”
The happy couple met last summer and they’re still going strong. When asked if he’s “the one,” Jillian didn’t hesitate. “I know he’s the one! Yeah, he’s the one, absolutely.”
If all goes well, we may be seeing Justin — a professional snowboarder — in the next Winter Olympics. When we asked about his prospects, Jillian answered, “Maybe in Sochi [in 2014]. He’s been working really hard. He’s a really cool guy. He’s a hard worker, but
he’s very present. Tons of energy, big heart — sensitive but still hot and edgy.”
But what does Justin think of Jill? “I think he sees a lot of his mom in me, which I think is a good thing. Me and his mom have tons of energy. We’re bubbly.”
Despite their crazy schedules, Jillian and Justin still find time together “I just bought a house in Kelowna. That’s kind of our place, but his family also has a place in Kelowna. So, like my grandma says, we’re like horse sh*t. We’re all over the place!”
We’re glad to see Jilly hasn’t lost even a little bit of that spitfire sense of humor we love so much!
