Kasey Kahl already thought his girlfriend of several months, Vienna Girardi, was beautiful. But when she flew to Houston in July to have a rhinoplasty, he flew there, too, to be with her.
"She says she wants to do this surgery to help herself feel better because she's been through some trauma in her early years," Kahl tells PEOPLE. "I honestly think she's gorgeous and beautiful inside and out so it doesn't matter to me."
He adds: "I was there a day after her surgery. I stuck by her side and either way, I said, 'I am here for you and I support you no matter what you want to do.'"
Girardi, 25, says Kahl continues to offer comfort even though they haven't gotten a good night's sleep in some time. "I am really exhausted and my head hurts pretty bad right now," she says. "I am getting through it. I've only been out in public for three days. I still have black eyes and my nose is still swollen and I am still recovering. It's about a month to 6 months for the recovery time and it's only been three weeks for me."

Just as the new season of Bachelor Pad premieres Monday on ABC, one of the competing couples are moving on – and moving in – with each other.
Vienna Girardi and Kasey Kahl confirm to PEOPLE they are looking for a new home together in Los Angeles.
"We are looking at apartments and will take the next step in our relationship," Girardi told PEOPLE at the ABC Television Critics Association press tour party at the Beverly Hilton Sunday night.
And Kahl couldn't be happier: "She's my girl! I love her. She's my everything. She's my future, she's my forever, she's my love," he said.

Vienna Girardi is showing off her new nose – sort of.
The Bachelor Pad contestant, who recently went under the knife for a nose job, was photographed at Los Angeles International Airport on Thursday with a bandage on her nose and bruises around her eyes.
"I want my surgery to be looked at as positive reflection of how I feel," the winer of The Bachelor winner recently Tweeted about getting the procedure. "If it makes you feel better about yourself then DO IT."

New season of Bachelor Pad, new drama.
According to last season's winner, Natalie Getz, when contestants from The Bachelor and The Bachelorette compete against each other for $250,000, tensions are bound to flare.
"I think it's going to be a complete s– show to be honest with you and I can't wait," Getz told PEOPLE. "It's going to be super dramatic."
One source of tension will undoubtedly be the reunion of exes Jake Pavelka and Vienna Girardi, who share the house with Girardi's current love interest Kasey Kahl (best known for getting a tattoo on Ali Fedotowsky's season). While Getz says that the love triangle did result in fighting, the contestants were able to move past it.

Vienna Girardi just got a nose job, and she couldn't be happier.
"I want my surgery to be looked at as positive reflection of how I feel. If it makes you feel better about yourself then DO IT. xoxo," the former Bachelor winner Tweeted.
The only downside to the plastic surgery, says Vienna, is the recovery. "Couldn't wear makeup during my ET interview bc of surgery... Dnt judge me lol," she Tweeted.

Bachelor Pad is back – so let the backstabbing begin!
The ABC show, which reunites some of the most memorable contestants from The Bachelor and The Bachelorette to compete for $250,000, will bring together exes Jake Pavelka and Vienna Girardi, a source tells PEOPLE, when season 2 premieres Aug. 8 on ABC.
Pavelka and Girardi's split last June ended in a nasty feud that played out on national TV, as Jake accused his season's winner of being unfaithful, while she said he was a liar and a "fame whore."

Vienna Girardi is head over heels for her new beau Kasey Kahl, but admits she was nervous to be dating again after her highly publicized split from ex-fiancé Jake Pavelka.
The former Bachelor winner, 24, still has reservations about getting close to anyone, based on what she calls a "train-wreck" experience with her former love.
"Even opening up to Kasey, like, we were dating for a few months, but I didn't want it to go public because I wanted to make sure it was real," Girardi told PEOPLE this weekend at Reality Rocks Expo in L.A. "I am absolutely scared of the possibility of getting engaged again. It scares me 100 percent."

Her romance with Jake Pavelka didn't work out, but Vienna Girardi isn't giving up on finding love within The Bachelor franchise.
Girardi, 24, has been cozying up to Bachelorette contestant Kasey Kahl, whose catch phrase "guard and protect your heart" was tattooed on his wrist in an effort to impress Ali Fedotowsky when he vied for her affection on season 6.
"They are dating and have been for a few months," Girardi's rep confirms 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."

When Vienna Girardi and The Bachelor's Jake Pavelka's engagement crumbled last year, the show's winner, 24, pointed a finger at her former fiancé's desire for fame. But that hasn't stopped Girardi from looking for love – or from considering the possibility of trying to find it on reality TV.
"If they talk to me, maybe we'll talk," Girardi told PEOPLE of her interest in becoming the next star of The Bachelorette. "I really, truly did want to find love and get married, and I still want that."
But when asked if she'd consider looking for romance on a second season of Bachelor Pad, the former marketing rep concedes she'd prefer something more serious: "I've had so much fun already," she says.
For now, Girardi is casually dating – "I'm talking here, talking there," she says – but insists she's currently single.
