Kaitlyn Bristowe and Jason Tartick’s relationship had an uncanny start. Despite both of them being in The Bachelorette on different seasons, the pair didn’t start dating until meeting on Bristowe’s podcast in 2019.

Recalling their blissful first meeting, Bristowe told People: "My relationship with Jason was definitely not something I expected. When I met him, dating anyone wasn't even on my radar, especially dating anyone in Bachelor world, but something in my mind was rooting for him. And I thought, 'Whoever dates him is a lucky girl.'”

Fast forward to Sunday, Aug 6, the couple announced their split after four years together.
