Kirk DeWindt may have gotten the shaft from Ali Fedotowsky on ‘The Bachelorette,’ but by the time he interviewed with reporters two weeks ago, the Midwestern blondie was ready to get back in the saddle again. “I’m single and I am now exploring the dating world. It’s flattering: I had a good response and when I’m out and about, people are great. But I’m excited to get back out there, to be honest with you,” he said.

Have you blinked yet? POOF! Kirk has apparently wasted no time at all, as he’s now dating Ali’s former ‘Bachelor’ contestant rival, Jessie Sulidis, who’ll be starring in the upcoming spinoff ‘Bachelor Pad,’ People reports.

You may recognize Jessie from her guest appearance this season as the rat-sniffing sleuth who revealed Justin ‘Rated R’ Rego’s two-timing ways to Ali. (Guess she also knows how to sniff-out former mold spore victims, too)…

“[Kirk and Jessie] met at the ‘Men Tell All’ then went to the afterparty and exchanged numbers — and a kiss,” says an anonymous source. And the Nordic King is said to be going that extra mile for the mousey brunette. “He’s driving up to Canada this weekend to see her so they can get to know each other. Everything is hush-hush right now because they don’t know what will come of it. But he is definitely over Ali!”

High-fives to Kirk and Jessie if they find transnational love. We just hope that she knows about the dead frozen zoo her new beau grew up with.
