Fans are currently waiting for new seasons of The Bachelorette and Bachelor in Paradise, but stars of Bachelor Nation are certainly keeping us entertained in the meantime! The Bachelorette’s Bennett Jordan continues to flirt with The Bachelor’s Kelley Flanagan online and fans are loving it!
Thanks to insight from E! News, here is the scoop on Bennet’s crush on Kelley and how he asked her ex Peter Weber for his blessing!
Bennett Jordan Has A Crush
On Monday, April 19 on The Ben and Ashley I Almost Famous Podcast with Ben Higgins and Ashley Iaconetti, the former Bachelorette contestant talks all about his current crush. Right now, Bennett Jordan has his sights set on Kelley Flanagan. She is a former Bachelor contestant, and the ex-girlfriend of former Bachelor star Peter Weber.
Regarding his current romantic interest, Bennett says, “I’ve been pretty upfront and honest and intentional with my interest, and it is with one lady. Her name is Kelley Flanagan. Certainly quite interested in Kelley.”
Bennett also explains why he likes Kelley so much. He adds, “She’s obviously a very, very smart girl. She’s very well-spoken. I think our journeys and the way that it sort of played out on TV are quite similar.”
Will Bennett and Kelly Start Dating?
Bennett Jordan talks about how he and Kelley share similar experiences in Bachelor Nation. He says, “I don’t want to put her on blast or anything but I think there’s a lot of good, similar overlap. And, potentially mutual interest that could be worth exploring.”
He also adds that they have been in “touch” via Instagram.
Bennett is actually so serious about exploring things with Kelley, that he asked her ex-boyfriend if it would be alright. Kelley and former Bachelor star Peter Weber broke up in December of 2020.
Jordan explains, “Being the guy that I am, kind of taking things head-on, calling spades a spade and going for it, I actually met Peter. And after about the second or third tequila shot, I just threw it out there and said, ‘I’d like to address the elephant in the room. Is it awkward that I have interest in flirting with your ex?'”
Bennett says that Peter shared, “‘She’s someone that I really care about. I always will.'” However, Bennett also adds, “But, he technically gave his blessing and said, ‘It seems like you’re a great guy. I really appreciate you asking.’ It was a really nice conversation.”
So even with Peter’s approval, Bennett is yet to take Kelley on a date. Bennett says, “I’ve never been on a date with her. I think there’s a heck of a lot that will tell when you get together with someone in real life versus having conversations or dialogues here and there, and obviously, seeing people on TV and having a perception of them.”
Bachelor Nation fans will just have to wait and see if there is a new couple on the horizon! Do you want to see Bennett Jordan and Kelley Flanagan together?
