THE Bachelorette’s Josh Seiter has moved on from 90 Day Fiance star Yolanda Leak and is now dating Love After Lockup’s Lizzie Kommes.
In an exclusive interview with The Sun, Josh, 33, revealed Lizzie, 43, messaged him on Instagram weeks ago and was immediately attracted to the fellow reality star.

Josh, who appeared on Kaitlyn Bristowe’s season of The Bachelorette, said: “We talked and she asked what was a hot guy like me doing single. I explained I just got out of a bad relationship with Yolanda. She said she just got out of a bad relationship too.”
Josh admitted he was “skeptical at first,” as Lizzie’s rap sheet includes six driving under the influence arrests and more.
But he continued: “I truly believe she’s turned her life around and isn’t that person anymore.
“She has a great smile and I like her tattoos. But she’s also funny, a bit older which I prefer, down to earth and has a dominant personality. I tend to be attracted to the dominate types since I’m shy myself. We just click and it works kinda perfectly.

“She’s rough around the edges and I like that.”
The two have yet to meet in person, as they live two hours from each other and plan to meet half way later this month.
Like with Josh’s relationship with Yolanda, he has gotten social media hate, as followers have accused him of dating for fame.
Josh said in response to the backlash: “People love to hate me and that’s fine because I’m dating Lizzie, not the fans. I can’t help what people think or feel about me so I stopped caring a long time ago.

“Lizzie and I have a genuine connection and if people can’t be happy for us they can kick rocks. I like Lizzie for the woman she is and I’d like to think she likes me for the man I am and the rest is just noise.”
Josh proposed to Yolanda over FaceTime after two months of dating and meeting just once.
He even got a tattoo of his then-fiancee, which he is currently in the process of removing.

He said he is going to take things “much slower” this time around.
Josh said: “I learned my lesson with Yolanda and online dating. No tattoos this time, and I’m actually going to meet Lizzie in person early on so we can spend time together and get to know each other in person.
“Also, I won’t be proposing anytime soon, and if I do it will be in person, not through the mail, but that won’t happen for a while.”
Lizzie announced their relationship over Instagram on Thursday.
She captioned a selfie of Josh: “I just wanted to say it’s official that I am an amazing relationship with this guy @josh_seiter_official he makes me laugh he’s totally adorable and check out the hot bod. #happyagain #hottie? #boyfriend #makesmesmile #sexy.”
On Friday, Josh confirmed the romance himself, as he wrote alongside a beautiful photo of Lizzie, who appeared on Season 2 of Love After Lockup: “Ten days until I get to see my queen ?.”
