Bachelor, meet your new bachelorette!

“They started hanging out. It got romantic right away,” an insider tells Us of when they first met. “They’ve been hooking up.”
Flajnik has since denied the two are dating. “Here we go again. Hey @usweekly maybe put a call into me once and a while for some fact checking. Sincerely, #TheTruth,” he tweeted Tuesday, Nov. 26. In fact, Us did reach out to Flajnik via email on Friday, Nov. 22; he replied, “Oh, jeez, ha. I’m over this.”
