The Bachelor star Felix is giving love another shot on Hinge… and telling everyone how he feels about Jess through his profile.
The show might have ended, but the drama goes on. Days after (one) of his leading ladies, Jess, was spotted with a new man, The Bachelor star Felix was seen on Hinge – and his profile belied his feelings about on his screen romance on the show.
According to screenshots obtained by So Dramatic!, Felix’s profile included numerous references to his time on the dating show and the love triangle drama that he was unwittingly pulled into with Jess and Damien.
One of the answers on his profile, for example, read: “Therapy recently taught me to: avoid dating on national TV.” Yikes.
In another answer, he was more explicit with his jibe at his on-screen interest Jess, who spent the season advocating for an open relationship – as long as her partners did not have relationships of their own, that is.
“Green flags I look for: someone who isn’t currently dating someone else,” said Felix’s profile. Is he wrong, though?
The relationship between Jess and Felix was one of the highlights of this season, particularly because of her existing relationship with Damien. While Jess wished to be in a polyamorous relationship, both Felix and Damien were less than thrilled about the idea. During the finale, however, Jess broke up Damien and chose Felix – but it didn’t last long, according to the statements released by them earlier this week.

Both Felix and Jess cited the struggles of being long distance as the reason for their separation.
“As someone who really values communication and who loves a good D&M, I felt like Felix and I had very different perspectives on what that would look like, and we just kind of lacked that communication,” Jess said.
She added: “I still care for him as a person and I think he was a massive part of my life, I would never want to discredit that, but from the get-go, I knew he wasn’t going to be my life partner and he deserves someone who is completely all the way in and not half in.”
According to a fan who DM’d former The Bachelor star Tara Pavlovic-Sheperdson, Jess ‘went running back to Damien straight away’ after her break-up with Felix.
