Kenny Braasch’s Bachelor in Paradise debut has been much more eventful than his time on The Bachelorette. So far, the boy band manager has managed to find himself in a love triangle followed by a love square. His first romantic connection with Mari seemed very promising, and they both appeared on the same page. Unfortunately, once Mari told Kenny she would go on dates with other men if they asked, Demi swooped in to make her own romantic connection happen.

So, how old is Kenny? He’s 40 years old, as his birthday is June 2, 1981. As for Mari, she’s only 25 — and the two even had a conversation about how Kenny’s 15 years older than her. Fortunately for Kenny, Mari didn’t seem to mind their age gap. She even stated she’d dated men over 15 years older than her in the past.

How old is Demi Burnett? How old is Tia Booth?

While Kenny’s Bachelor in Paradise debut currently makes him the oldest cast member on the beach, it doesn’t seem to deter the younger women. Demi’s made it clear she doesn’t mind Kenny’s age. So, how old is Demi? She’s 26 years old, and her birthday is Feb. 21, 1995. That puts a 14-year age difference between her and Kenny.

When Demi got her start on The Bachelor, Demi joined the cast at just 23 years old — and she frequently made fun of the older women vying for Colton’s heart. Refinery29 reminds us Demi got into a fight with another woman on the season for calling her out for being young. And Tracy Shapoff from Colton’s season frequently referred to Demi as a “child,” though Demi also called Tracy a “cougar.”

As for Tia Booth, she also thought she found love with Colton in a previous season of Bachelor in Paradise. Unfortunately, it didn’t work out between them. Now, she’s back on the beach and going for Kenny — but there’s also an age difference between them. Tia’s 30 years old and was born on Aug. 11, 1991. That puts a 10-year age gap between her and Kenny.

“Ultimately we now know that Kenny chose Mari over Demi since Kenny and Mari are engaged,” Reality Steve explained. “But I was told in the beginning he was going back and forth between them.”

What about Tia? Reality Steve reported Tia left this season “single.”

Bachelor in Paradise airs Monday and Tuesday nights on ABC and streams the next day on Hulu.
