Oh, how reality bites. On Monday night’s “Bachelor Pad,” Ames Brown stole the show (and women’s hearts everywhere) when he prematurely checked out of the $250K competition and ran after Jackie Gordon’s exiting limo, all for the sake of love…
Well, stop your cooing and embrace your Grinch hearts: Apparently, the cuddly couple is dunzo.
“Well, we had a great time on the show and chose love over money in the competition and so on,” Ames said in a conference call with reporters. “And we’re not still dating, but we enjoyed every moment we had together.”
Although he said he wouldn’t change a thing, the 31-year-old portfolio manager was evasive about the details of their break-up and simply concluded they “just weren’t the ideal match” but that they are still friends today.
So what is Jackie’s take on the disappointing ending? “I was definitely shocked that it ended as it did,” she revealed, indicating the Ivy Leaguer may have prompted the split. “I felt this was something that had potential forever…I have cried it out a lot, it’s been hard, but you know, you live and you learn and I’m glad that I loved.”
