Kirk, resist the urge to show Jessie your father’s basement. Wait until the … 18th date. Or after marriage.
According to People magazine, Scrapbook Kirk DeWindt of Ali Fedotowsky’s troubled season of “The Bachelorette” may be dating Jessie Sulidis, one of Ali’s former rivals for Jake Pavelka (girls fought for him! remember that?) on “The Bachelor.”
Not only that, Jessie was the one who told Ali about Justin “Rated-R” Rego’s so-called girlfriend, Jessica Spillas. Because Jessie is all over Toronto like that.
“But when Sulidis attended the July 17 taping of the Men Tell All special, she hit it off with Ali’s would-be man. ‘They met at the Men Tell All, then went to the afterparty and exchanged numbers — and a kiss,’ says the source. Since then, ‘they have been talking.’
And DeWindt seems ready to get serious with Sulidis. ‘He’s driving up to Canada this weekend to see her so they can get to know each other,” says the source. “Everything is hush-hush right now because they don’t know what will come of it. But he is definitely over Ali!'”
You know what this means? Kirk probably won’t be the next “Bachelor.” Yay! ‘Cause even if he says this is just a casual thing, through the whole “Bachelor” season people would claim he had a girlfriend back home. That he’s really pining for Jessie. Etc.
This also means “The Bachelor” and “Bachelorette” are most successful at introducing the rejects to each other after their respective dumpings. Jessie is also going to be on “Bachelor Pad” and according to Reality Steve’s spoilers, she doesn’t win. Not even close.
We all know DeAnna Pappas is now dating Stephen Stagliano, twin brother of Michael Stagliano of Jillian’s season. Michael is dating Holly Durst of Matt Grant’s season of “The Bachelor” and she previously dated Jesse Csincsak, who proposed to DeAnna on “The Bachelorette.”
There have been other “Bachelor” pairings and hookups in the past. Too many to count and most have been blessedly brief. But my favorite relationship is probably sweet and goofy Fred Greif from DeAnna’s season and pretty redhead Noelle Drake, from Matt’s season . They are adorable!
