I was just drawn to that and attracted to that. And I think I was just really intrigued by the way that [Austin] thinks in general because like he said, we don’t really think the same. And so it made both of us gain a new perspective and see where the other person was coming from. And we continue to do that now.”
Some Bachelor Nation splits hit harder than others. The Bachelor franchise has been matchmaking since 2002.
