Known as Ashley I, Ashley Iaconetti has been a regular on our TV sets since her first appearance on The Bachelor Season 19 in 2015. After her memorable appearances in the Bachelor franchise three times and still not finding love, at the age of 29 she started hosting her own show, The Story of Us, on KineticContentTV. On the show, she interviews happy couples to find out the secret of their success. If you follow Ashley’s Instagram, ashley_iaconetti,you will find it hard to believe that she is, in fact, still single. Ashley was born in Great Falls, Virginia, USA and has a sister called Lauren. She attended James Madison University and went on to graduate from Syracuse University with a Masters degree in Broadcasting and Digital Journalism. She is the owner and CEO of E and S Mediacreations.com which specializes in weddings, sports and corporate entertainment.
Ashley Iaconetti and Jared Haibon have been linked in the past after they got together on Season 2 of Bachelor in Paradise. Even though their romance was short lived, fans still speculate whether or they are a couple or not. In fact, fans were outraged when Jared stated on a recent Podcast that he was happily single and had been “for six years”. In complete contrast, Ashley had said on Entertainment Tonight that she would be “open” to a relationship with Haibon. This sparked Blogger Reality Steve to take to Twitter with, ""FYI, Jared and Ashley are definitely back together."" It seems that fans just can’t accept that they are not together. On the Jenny McCarthy show, both stars were interrogated about their relationship, with Jared saying that there was a lot of pressure on the pair, people coming up to them all the time and saying “why aren’t you dating?” He very sweetly and eloquently said that, “It’s possible that two people can really love each other, just not romantically, to not date and still be really good friends”. Ashley looked on with great affection as he was talking and it showed that these two clearly have a very special relationship with each other.
Ashley won Season 1 of The Bachelor Winter Games, getting together with Kevin Wendt. It all seemed too good to be true and unfortunately it was, when they split after just three months. Perhaps men are intimated by Ashley’s triple threat: Beautiful, intelligent and business savvy? She is very self aware though and in an interview on Entertainment Tonight, she said that perhaps the last relationship (with Kevin) was too serious and what she had learnt from her new show, The Story of Us, was that successful couples tend to have a good sense of humour and keep it light hearted. Being a dreamy Pisces has not held her back in her career but her emotions certainly have got the better of her at times. On Twitter, @ashleyiaco, she describes herself as “The *crying girl* from The Bachelor 19/BIP” and “I have too much emotion to ever be brief”. Her witty yet poignant tweets make her a lot of fun to follow, for instance: “Princess Diana married into the royal family at 20-years-old. At 20, I went to 4 Jonas Brothers concerts in 7 days.” 183,000 followers can’t be wrong. So what’s next for the glamorous brunette from Great Falls, Virginia? Well, she says that she is single and ready to date and as for her relationship with Jared? “Only time will tell” she mysteriously teased fans. One thing’s for sure is that she won’t be left on the shelf for too long. She is one hot eligible bachelorette.
