Bachelorette DeAnna Pappas is now dating Ace Amerson of The Real World Paris. According to Times of the Internet, “It’s getting serious…She’s falling in love with Ace.”
DeAnna Pappas and Ace Amerson seem well-matched. Both are around the same age, and they are native Georgians. On The Bachelor and The Bachelorette, DeAnna had mentioned wanting a boyfriend who would be willing to live close to her family. Also, like “blue collar bachelor” Brad Womack, Ace Amerson is a bar owner.
DeAnna Pappas is a veteran of reality dating. She first appeared on The Bachelor where she sought the heart of Brad Womack. She gained the sympathy of audience when she made it to the end only to have Brad reject her. DeAnna Pappas then appeared on season 4 as The Bachelorette where she made a difficult choice between Jason Mesnick and Jesse Csincsak. In the end, she chose free-snowboarder Jesse Csincsak. Although they had made wedding plans, she eventually dumped him, giving him the old “I love you, but I’m not in love with you” cliché.
Bachelorette DeAnna Pappas Now Dating Ace Amerson: Jason Mesnick and Jesse Csincsak
On The Bachelorette, DeAnna Pappas’ decision was based on who would make her feel safe (Jason Mesnick) vs. who would give her a life of fun and adventure (Jesse Csincsak). In retrospect, neither gentleman was an ideal match for her.
Bachelor Jason Mesnick was an ideal choice on paper: handsome, kind, loving, stable, and successful. Yet DeAnna Pappas seemed to have more chemistry with southerners Graham Bunn and Brad Womack. Jason Mesnick has a son in Seattle, so it would have been difficult for him to relocate. Fortunately, he was given his own show where he will have a second chance at love.
Although DeAnna Pappas will appear on Jason’s season of The Bachelor, it is not likely that they will reunite. Her current relationship with Ace Amerson shows that she has her sights set elsewhere.
Bachelorette DeAnna Pappas Now Dating Ace Amerson: Reality Dating
The Reality Show community seems to be incestuous. Big Brother All-Star Winner Mike Malin has dated contestants Krista Stegall, Chiara Berti, and Erika Landin. American Idol’s Jennifer Hudson is engaged to I Love New York 2’s David Punk Otunga. Reality show contestants are probably able to relate to each other in ways that others cannot understand.
Still, reality “showmances” tend to fall apart when the contestants have appeared on the same show. Nearly every relationship from The Bachelor has ended in a break-up. The only couples to remain together are Mary Delgado and Byron Velvick (in spite of the fact that she was arrested for punching him in the mouth) and Trista Rehn and Ryan Sutter (who are now happily married with a son). Hopefully DeAnna Pappas and Ace Amerson will have better luck.
