Ashley Iaconetti And Kevin Wendt's Romance

Ashley Iaconetti is currently in a romantic relationship with Kevin Wendt, a former Canadian Bachelorette contestant. The duo competed on the Olympic-themed spin-off show 'The Bachelor Winter Games.'

Ashley first met Kevin in the show itself. While talking with PEOPLE, Ashley opened up about the time when she first saw Kevin. She divulged,

“When I saw him for the first time at the parade, I was like, ‘That means trouble. He’s hot. I’m probably going to cry, and it’s not going to work out,'”

However, Ashley joined the show with no intentions of finding her other half. She added,

“I went into the Winter Games just with the intention of hanging out with my friends ,so I had no idea that I’d meet somebody, too. I definitely was like, ‘Foreign guys!’ But Canada, sure.”

The couple has been portrayed on the show as being "hot and heavy" with plenty of makeout sessions. 

However, Ashley's v-card has been the topic of debate since the first time she appeared on 'The Bachelor' franchise. Well, the topic has not yet been out of the air as she is now dating Kevin Wendt.

Ashley, with her boyfriend Kevin, had their experience in the fantasy suite which raised doubt among the fans if Ashely loses her V-card on the show. A fan of Ashley tweeted,

“DID @ashleyiaco JUST MAKE HISTORY ON THE @BachWinterGames?? First contestant to lose their v card on the show??”   

To the tweet, Ashley replied,

 “No. Pizza, wine, talking, and making out. I want this to be clear,”

She is clear now; however, in the beginning, Ashley was determined to not open up about it as someone else was associated with that topic of her life.

Before Kevin, she was involved with Jared Haibon, but the connection was not as expected to be. She even had her name linked with Ben Higgins after they were spotted together in a concert.
