was close to winning Ali Fedotowsky
’s heart on The Bachelorette
– he even brought her home to meet his parents – but ended up bruised and banged up
when she let him go
after his hometown date. Now, a source close to the situation says he’s already moved on – with one of Ali’s fellow Bachelor
contestants, Jessie Sulidis
Though Sulidis, who will appear on the upcoming spin-off Bachelor Pad
, and Fedotowsky were both vying for Jake Pavelka
's affection on the last season of The Bachelor
, they became close during filming and stayed friends. Sulidis even tipped off Fedotowsky
that one of the Bachelorette
contestants, Justin "Rated R" Rego
, was in touch with a girlfriend back home while he was filming.
But when Sulidis attended the July 17 taping of the Men Tell All
special, she hit it off with Ali’s would-be man. "They met at the Men Tell All
, then went to the afterparty and exchanged numbers – and a kiss,” says the source. Since then, “they have been talking."
And DeWindt seems ready to get serious with Sulidis. “He's driving up to Canada this weekend to see her so they can get to know each other,” says the source. “Everything is hush-hush right now because they don't know what will come of it. But he is definitely over Ali!" –Charlotte Triggs
