Vienna Girardi is likely best known as the contestant who won the heart of Jake Pavelka on "The Bachelor" season 14. Girardi was engaged to Pavelka from March 1, 2010 until June 2010, when they broke and shared their stories to various tabloids.

It was reported earlier on Monday that Pavelka has a new love in his life. The former "Bachelor" star is dating Ashley Ann Vickers, a former contestant on "Sweet Home Alabama," a reality sating show on CMT, according to Us Weekly.

Kahl was a contestant on "The Bachelorette" season 6 where he tried to win the heart of Ali Fedotowsky before being eliminated.

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.
