They are “having a great time together,” Ryan tells Firefighter Ryan also says he’s visited often at work by fans. They include “families with teenagers, college students around Spring Break time, older retired ladies and sometimes a few guys who just come to say hi.” Hopefully they get out of his way when there’s, like, a fire. Meanwhile, Jesse Palmer is apparently already looking for additional attention. The NY Post’s Elisa Lipsky-Karasz reports (last item) that Jesse “was out on the town last Thursday night, collecting a phone number from at least one pretty blonde, who gave her name only as Raleigh.” Apparently, though, his heart is still with the woman he met on the show, as Raleigh “was a dead ringer for 22-year-old Jessica Bowlin.”
