JJ Lane and Juelia Kinney both appeared on the second season of Bachelor in Paradise but both quit and failed to find love. The two co-stars never dated on the summer spin-off but they became good friends off camera and soon found themselves in each others arms a year later.

The two reality stars have been long rumored to be seeing each other after posting photos on social media where they were seemingly acting like a couple almost year ago. 

Both haven’t really confirmed that they are a couple until recently when JJ finally responded to someone asking if the two were dating.

When another follower said she’s secretly hoping he and Juelia would end up together, the former TV villain replied, “Well you may have your wish.” 

Meanwhile, Juelia also shared a photo on Instagram hinting that they are dating. 

Villains need love too 😉 @jjhlane

Prior to joining Bachelor in Paradise, Juelia first competed for Chris Soules on The Bachelor season 19. The esthetician from Portland, OR was eliminated in week four. On the other hand, JJ competed for Kaitlyn Bristowe on The Bachelorette season 11. The former investment banker from Denver, Colorado is perhaps best known for his “brokeback bromance” with season 11 contestant Clint. The self-appointed villain met his demise on The Bachelorette during the dreaded two-on-one date with Kaitlyn and Joe where he confided in Kaitlyn that he cheated on his wife which resulted to the end of his marriage. Both are single parents of little girls. 

What do you think of the pairing?

Bachelor in Paradise season 3 airs Mondays and Tuesdays at 8pm on ABC.
