‘The Bachelor’: Contestant Amanda Stanton Is Dating This Former Bravo Reality Star
Love is in the air for Bachelor Nation…or at least for one member. Former Bachelor contestant Amanda Stanton has had a rough time in the franchise. She has fallen in love again and again only to have her heart broken each time, and most times on national television.
But apparently, it takes more than a shattered heart to keep Stanton down as she has reportedly found love again. But this time, it’s with the last person anyone would expect.
Amanda Stanton’s failed relationships
We were first introduced to Stanton on Ben Higgin’s season of The Bachelor. She made it all the way to hometowns where Higgins met her two daughters before ultimately getting sent home.
Then, she tried her hand at love again and went on Bachelor in Paradise in 2016. While there, she met and fell in love with Josh Murray. Despite her friends trying to warn her about Murray’s behavior, she ended the season engaged to him.
The engagement soon ended and Stanton found herself right back on Paradise the next summer where she started a relationship with Robby Hayes.
The two went their separate ways at the end of the season but Stanton claims that Hayes wanted them to come out as a couple at the reunion special.
“At that point, I hadn’t even seen him in weeks,” she wrote in her book “Now Accepting Roses: Finding Myself While Searching for the One … and Other Lessons I Learned from The Bachelor.” “When a fan direct messaged me a photo of Robby kissing another girl at a concert, I was further convinced he wasn’t truly interested in any type of relationship or commitment. … I felt his motivation was to look good and get more airtime.”
In May of 2018, Stanton got together with Bobby Jacobs, a regular guy who had nothing to do with The Bachelor. The two dated until April of this year before abruptly splitting up.
“Amanda was completely blindsided by all of this and thought that things between her and Bobby were going great,” a source told E! News at the time.
Stanton’s new man
After her last breakup, Stanton said that she was not going to focus on dating for a while.
“I’m not looking for a guy at all. If it comes along, great, but I’m super busy,” she told Entertainment Tonight in August. “I have the girls. I’ve been traveling a lot. I have a lot going on. I’m, like, finally at a place where I’m like, ‘I don’t really care.’ I’m just doing me.”
But now, it has been reported that Stanton is dating Rich Kids of Beverly Hills star Brendan Fitzpatrick, according to TMZ.
Just two months ago, Fitzpatrick and Morgan Stewart announced that they were separating after three years of marriage.
“Brendan and I have spent six wonderful years together, but we have made the difficult decision to go our separate ways,” Stewart announced on her IG story on August 9th.
“I will always have a tremendous amount of love and respect for Brendan and our relationship,” she said.
