There’s little doubt that the last year has been a rather tumultuous one for the Utah-based businessman, as he went from being an ordinary guy to a tabloid fixture courtesy of winning “The Bachelorette.” For the first few months, it appeared to be smooth sailing between him and Emily Maynard; but after some cracks in the relationship started to show via the tabloids, it was only a matter of time before the couple ended up calling it quits for good. There were rumors of a reconciliation months later, but even this ended up going nowhere regardless of whether or not they were true.
Now, we’re hearing some other sad news breaking from the Jef camp: his relationship with Katianna Bear, which he never really confirmed to begin with, is already done. Wetpaint got the scoop straight from Jef at the Sundance Film Festival, and all signs seem to be pointing towards the man being single once again.
Ever since his relationship with Emily ended, Jef has attempted to try and restore a certainly level of privacy to his personal life. He has already promised to never take part in another reality show again, and at least so far he stood by this. As a matter of fact, he didn’t even appear at the start of Sean Lowe’s season to give him advice, even though another fellow contestant in Arie Luyendyk Jr. did. Hopefully Jef and Emily are each going to be able to move on now without much harassment from the press, and the good news is that it typically becomes easier as the years pass following their time on TV.
