We love when Bachelor Nation folks get mushy.
Just based on the numbers, most contestants are not going to find love on The Bachelor or The Bachelorette. But when Bachelor folks leave the show, they often find someone new — even “The One” — right away. Sometimes (like Chris Lambton and Peyton Wright Lambton) they hook up with other alumni. Other times (like Melissa Rycroft) they reconnect with an old flame. And still other times (like Chantal O’Brien) they happen to meet someone new right after the show.
Constantine Tzortzis was Ben Flajnik’s best buddy on The Bachelorette Season 7 — and, after leaving Ashley Hebert at the final three, he went home to Georgia and happened to meet a British girl, reportedly named Rachel. He’s shared his love for her a couple of times in the past year, but today he tweeted this note, after watching Emily Maynard’s trip to London on Season 8, Episode 5:
“Watching the #Bachelorette Emily and her guys in London makes me miss the love of my life who currently is living across the pond. It will be one year, ironically enough on the 4th of July for us. She's been the best thing that's ever happened to me and I can't imagine my life without her.”
Isn’t that so sweet? Earlier this month he shared a photo of himself and his girlfriend, after a fan asked how he was doing: “‘@Btayy03: @contzor is an incredibly good looking man, but whats new?’ thank u :) This is what my life is about now pic.twitter.com/z662Wsim.”
Love it. Hope they figure out the living situation so they can stay together for many more years!
