Reality love! Bachelor alum Jef Holm is off the market and dating Too Hot to Handle star Francesca Farago. “People are quick to put a title on things but we’re just in the beginning stages and are taking things slow,” the entrepreneur, 36, told E! News on September 1.
The two met through their mutual friend, Casey, who "introduced us a few weeks ago," Holm shared. "She’s a lot of fun to be around," he added. "We’ve been hanging out and getting to know each other. She’s a great person inside and out and we have a lot in common. I definitely have a crush on her.”
The handsome hunk and Farago, 26, have yet to make things official via social media, but the pair have been hanging out together recently. On Tuesday, Holm posted a snapshot of a group of people drinking and sitting on a pool float in Arizona, which the brunette beauty also shared with her followers.
On August 25, rumors swirled that the Canada native was dating Damien Powers — who is dating Giannina Gibelli after they met on the reality show Love Is Blind — after they were spotted walking arm in arm through West Hollywood. However, Powers, 27, cleared the air as to what was really going on with him and Farago.
"Over the past week, I have been in L.A. with my attorney, Alex Ion, pursuing new projects and business ventures. Francesca and I both share the same attorney," he told E! News. "Alex arranged for both Francesca and I to meet with him for dinner at the Eveleigh in West Hollywood along with some of our other friends, including Mitchell Crawford and Raiane Macedo."
"Francesca grabbed onto me in an attempt to shield herself from the paparazzi as our entire group entered the car," he said. "Francesca and I are not dating or romantically involved but remain friends."
Meanwhile, Farago found love with Harry Jowsey, 22, while filming the Netflix show, and it seemed like the pair were even planning on getting hitched. "I genuinely thought we were going through a rocky period and that we were going to figure it out," she said in a YouTube video in June. "I thought we were going to end up together. I thought we were going to get married."
We can't wait to see Farago and Holm's romance continue to blossom.
