Vienna Girardi might not have found love with Jake Pavelka, who proposed to her in the season 14 finale of "The Bachelor," but that doesn't mean that the franchise has let her down because she's currently seeing another contestant, People magazine reports.

Girardi is now dating "The Bachelorette" contestant Kasey Kahl, who vied for Ali Fedotowsky in season 6 of the hit ABC dating show.

"They are dating and have been for a few months," Girardi's representation confirmed to People. "They've been spending time together in his Fresno [Calif.], hometown, working on some projects for his non-profit, Guard and Protect Hearts, Inc."

The couple has also been spotted around Fresno holding hands and putting their arms around each other.

Girardi was engaged to Pavelka from March 1, 2010 until June 2010, when they broke and shared their stories to various tabloids.

Girardi has hinted at her relationship with Kahl on Twitter since February 8, most recently writing, "Watching 'Message in a Bottle' giving myself a mani/pedi. Wearing a mud mask and whitening my teeth. If @KaseyRKahl could see me now haha."

Kahl was best known for getting his catch phrase, "guard and protect your heart" tattooed on his wrist, in an effort to impress Fedotowsky. Kahl also serenaded the bachelorette in what was one of the more awkward "Bachelorette" moments, watch a clip below.
