Well there certainly are ‘Stranger Things’ happening in Bachelor Nation right now. Bachelor in Paradise left us on a cliffhanger when bartender Wells Adams walked his good friend Danielle Maltby out to the exit limo and planted a big kiss on her before she left. But if you were holding out hope that the two are a couple, well I hate to break it to you but they are not.
BUT …. Wells is dating another well known face–Modern Family actress Sarah Hyland.
I am so beyond perplexed by this situation. To start, Sarah, 26, is an A-list television actress and Wells, 32, is a D-list reality star. Secondly, Sarah lives in Los Angeles and Wells lives in Nashville, so how did their paths even collide?!
I suppose it’s very appropriate that the two dressed up for Halloween together as characters from the Netflix drama ‘Stranger Things’.
A source told PEOPLE,
“They’ve been friends for a while and now they’ve been hanging out and spending more time together,”…..“They’re flirty.”
Hyland broke up with longtime boyfriend Dominic Sherwood over the summer (just in time to watch Wells on BiP.)
“The problem with being single isn’t the fact that you’re alone. It’s that you can’t puppy dog eye a guy into getting you Starbucks in bed,” she posted on Oct. 11.
I am guessing Wells is the kind of guy that Hyland can ‘puppy dog eye’ into making a Starbucks run.
I did see Wells was renting out his house in Nashville so maybe he is planning on staying in LA for a while to make a few more coffee runs.
This wouldn’t be the first time that a Bachelor/Bachelorette star hooked up with an A-list actress. Ben Flajnik had a brief fling with Jennifer Love Hewitt after getting rejected by Bachelorette Ashley Hebert in 2011.
And Bachelor Jake Pavelka dated Kristin Chenoweth in 2012.
