Rejected Bachelor 11 finalist Jenni back with her ex-boyfriend

Bachelor 11 finalist Jenni Croft, one of the two women dumped by Brad during the finale, left the show and immediately reunited with her former boyfriend.

“He picked me up from the airport when I got back home from the show. Everything happens for a reason, and I completely believe in fate. I honestly believe we’re supposed to be together,” she told Phoenix’s KZZP radio station, according to Reality TV World. “I am in a happy relationship now and it couldn’t be better. We dated for about two-and-a-half years. I came back [from filming The Bachelor], and he poured his heart out and I poured my heart out and we want this to work with each other.”

As to being dumped by Brad, Jenni said that it wasn’t really that traumatic for her. “You’re surrounded by nothing but thinking about him for six weeks, so you do get your hopes up and you want that so bad. But then he said he didn’t want to be with me [and] I’m not going to fall over and pass out and die because some man doesn’t want to be with me,” she said.
