Who says you can’t find love on The Bachelor? Two of the hit ABC show’s former contestants AshLee Frazier, fresh off the most recent season of The Bachelor, and Brad Womack, who dumped fiancee Emily Maynard weeks after proposing back in March 2011 are now dating.
The pair first met at an event in Texas, and have been happily hanging out ever since, according to an insider. Frazier, 32, even posted a photo of the pair hugging on her Instagram earlier this week.
“Game day. Who’s the real winner here? #Astros #twoTexaskids #wgt,” she captioned the shot. Fans immediately responded, asking Frazier if she and Womack were an item.
Frazier’s ex-husband, Andy Barbarow, said that though he doesn’t know who Womack is, he’s happy for the warm-hearted reality star. “Cool…good for her,” he told Us of the news. “I wish her all the best.”
Frazier famously left her season of The Bachelor without so much as a word to Bachelor Sean Lowe after he sent her packing from Thailand just ahead of the final two. “He’d been telling me, ‘You’re going to meet my family. You and my sister are going to be best friends,'” the personal organizer told host Chris Harrison on The Women Tell All special in March. “So this whole time, I’m thinking, ‘Huh, I got this.’ And then all of a sudden I didn’t.”
Now, however, the Houston native is cuddling up to another Bachelor hunk — 39-year-old Womack, who first made headlines on season 11 of the show when he dumped both DeAnna Pappas and Jenni Croft at the finale, opting to go home empty-handed rather than drop to one knee. Womack reemerged for another go in the franchise for season 15, when he narrowed the bevy of beauties down to Chantal O’Brien and Maynard and ultimately popped the question to Maynard. The pair were engaged, but Womack pulled the plug on the relationship in June 2011, saying in a later interview that he “dodged a bullet with that relationship.”
