'Bachelor in Paradise' Stars Jared Haibon & Ashley Iaconetti Still Might Have a Shot

On Bachelor in Paradise this summer, it was heartbreaking to see that Jared Haibon just didn't have the same feelings that Ashley Iaconetti had for him. But could that all be changing? In a recent interview, Jared talks about his connection with Ashley, and he couldn't possibly have had more positive things to say. 


While talking to Rhode Island Monthly, Jared was asked about his friendship with Ashley, and it seems like it's only grown since they left paradise. Jared described Ashley as having "one of the biggest hearts I've ever encountered," and that despite how emotional she is, they've become good friends. 

Jared said: 

She is just so kind. She puts other people ahead of herself, and honestly, that was one of the toughest parts about Paradise. For me, it was so soon after The Bachelorette, and I had an idea about what I wanted from going to Paradise, who I wanted to be with, and honestly Ashley I. just wasn’t on my radar. To have somebody so sweet and so great care about you so much and to know that your feelings aren’t as strong as hers, that was definitely the most difficult part.

It's hard to blame Jared for not being so into Ashley after reading that! It's not like he can control who he does and doesn't have feelings for, and it's awesome that he's making her feel appreciated now that they're friends. 

However, his words about Ashley definitely hint that they could be in each other's lives for a long time to come, so maybe a romance could be in their future? We'll keep our fingers crossed, because they'd be adorable together.
