Michael Garafola, who was on "The Bachelorette" and AshLee Frazier, one of the former contestants of "The Bachelor" are in a relationship and fans could not be more excited. On Oct. 15, Wet Paint had an exclusive interview with Michael in which he discussed his new relationship, which the couple confirmed on Monday.
Garafola explains that they met through friends. One of his best buddies from law school, Josh, is from AshLee's hometown of Katy, Texas and just happened to know one of her friends. The two talked for a few weeks before they finally met face to face in New York City during the Labor Day weekend. It worked out perfectly because Michael is from the Big Apple and was visiting his family. The former "Bachelor" contestant had an interview with Cosmo radio on XM, committed to hosting a Match.com event and had meetings in that same city.
Michael Garafola says,
“We hit it off instantly.”
The two don't live in the same city or even the same state, so their relationship will be a long distance one for now. The former "Bachelorette" contestant is an assistant U.S. district attorney in Miami, Florida and "The Bachelor" alum AshLee Frazier lives in Houston, Texas and recently launched the Love It! store. But for two people who are committed and in love, distance probably won't be a barrier.
What do you think of Michael Garafola and AshLee Frazier being in a relationship? Do you think their love will last? What other former "Bachelor" and "Bachelorette" contestants do you think would make a great couple?
