Lexi Young made a significant impact on Season 28 of The Bachelor. Despite leaving the show in week 6, her journey captured the hearts of viewers with her candid approach to dealing with endometriosis throughout her time on the show. Lexi’s openness about her health struggles resonated with many, solidifying her status as a fan favorite.

On the other hand, Tanner Courtad gained fame from his appearances on the 20th season of The Bachelorette and Season 9 of Bachelor in Paradise. Known for his charming personality and good looks, Tanner has become a fan-favorite contestant across multiple seasons of the franchise.

It’s unclear if Tanner is single after teasing a possible romance with BIP co-star Olivia Lewis. But if he’s not dating anyone, Bachelor Nation fans think he would be a perfect match for Lexi Young. Check out some of the comments left on her After The Final Rose photo:
