Bachelor runner up Elise from Matty J's season has announced a new relationship on Insta.

Oh, hello.

This is… different.

Elise Stacy from Matty J’s season of The Bachelor has found a new lil’ bit of romance… and not through a reality TV show.

On Monday, the bachie alum posted a photo of herself with her new boyfriend, Justin Kosmina, on Instagram.

“2018 has started off as the best one yet,” she captioned the photo.

“Even found one who laughs at my jokes more than I laugh at them myself.”

Yep, it looks like Elise has achieved the impossible… she’s found a boyfriend who’s not from a past season of The Bachelorette… or Married at First Sight. 

Of course, everyone on Instagram was very excited for her, especially her Bachie alum pals.

“You guuuuuys,” commented Florence Alexandra.

“LOVE YA’ZZZZ sxc,” added Lisa Carlton.

In case you missed it, the 29-year-old was the runner up on Matty J’s season of The Bachelor.

After the finale aired last year, she told TV Week that she knew well before Matty even opened his mouth that he wasn’t going to choose her because she could tell no one had walked down the footpath before her.

“I’d never felt more alone in that moment,” she told the magazine.

“I thought I’d met the love of my life.

“He made me feel like there were really strong feelings there so I do feel betrayed.”

There was speculation that Elise would appear on the first season of Bachelor of Paradise, but it looks like she, erm, found love in real life instead.
