An Inside Look At Why ‘Bachelor’ Couple Kaitlyn Bristowe and Jason Tartick Work So Well Together

Former Bachelorette Kaitlyn Bristowe and former Bachelorette contestant (Becca Kufrin’s season) Jason Tartick have been together for about six months. Already, things are getting serious–they’ve moved in together and bought a dog. The Bachelor and The Bachelorette don’t have a great track record when it comes to successful couples. Kaitlyn Bristowe broke off her engagement with her season winner, Shawn Booth, last year, and Jason Tartick was let go just before the engagement episode on Becca’s season.

But Kaitlyn and Jason really seem to be working. They have great chemistry, they’re hugely supportive of one another, and they have similar life goals.

Why Kaitlyn Bristowe and Jason Tartick make such a good couple

Kaitlyn and Jason recently spoke to Elite Daily about how and why their relationship is so successful. For one thing, they prioritize each other.  

“I think we share the same values in life and what we want. I think our number one important thing is putting each other first, and communicating, and making sure each other knows that we’re a priority,” said Kaitlyn.

Jason says communication is also a huge part of their success.

“[The] instant connection was just our chemistry and banter. The way we communicate, and what we talk about — it’s just non-stop, we can go on all day,” he said, adding that their core values are “identical.”  

“We talk about our friends and families all the time.”

Another thing that helps Kaitlyn and Jason maintain such a happy relationship is that they have similar work ethics.

“I think in general, we both work our a**es off, but at the same time, we know how to totally separate from work and enjoy life, and I think that’s really where we hit it off is, we were doing some work together, and then after that we just knew how to have a good time and enjoy every minute of it,” said Jason.

In fact, the two make a point to start their mornings with a “power hour” of work, and end the day with a glass of wine and some reflection.

“One of my favorite things is that Kaitlyn always likes to start her day with coffee and end it with wine,” said Jason “So we already have a schedule where we joke around, we call it the Power Hour. We wake up, have coffee on the patio, and we’ll bring out our lists and talk business and work, and we’ll always try to end our day with a glass of wine and reflect on the day.”

Kaitlyn Bristowe and Jason Tartick are just different enough to keep things interesting

And because being exactly the same would be boring, Kaitlyn makes sure to add that they’re different enough to challenge each other and help each other grow.

“I think we’re also very different in a lot of ways, where I’m maybe a little bit of a hot mess, and a scatterbrain, and [Jason is] organized,” she said. “I feel like we’re just a really good team, and where I struggle, he can build me up, and vice versa.”
