Sad news, Bachelor Nation. Ashley I. and Kevin Wendt have split.
The two met while participating in the first annual 'Bachelor Winter Games.' The two became hot and heavy very fast and went on to win the entire first season.
A source close to the former couple had this to say about the 3 month long relationship:
"It was a little weird to have to figure out a long-term plan so soon. Ashley and Kevin were both really into each other, they just weren't sure if it was a forever thing. And it's hard to date long distance like that (as you all know, Ashley I lives in Los Angeles, and Kevin W lives in Canada)."
Ashley I. and Kevin W. are scheduled to address their amicable split on Ashley's podcast: "The Ben and Ashley I. Almost Famous Podcast."
As of right now, there is no word on whether we will see Ashley I. continue her quest for love on another 'Bachelor' installment.
My Two Cents
As a longtime fan of all things 'Bachelor,' I had high hopes for Ashley I. this time. She and Kevin seemed so good for each other.
Don't give up, Ashley I. Keep the faith!
