‘Waited patiently for a long time for you and for this feeling! Very grateful! @mich_nich,’ he captioned one post about this time.

Alex appeared on Angie Kent’s season of The Bachelorette and Bachelor in Paradise, where he briefly dated Keira Maguire.

During their time on Paradise, Keira decided to quit the show, forcing him to do the same.

She was upset when she learned that no more contestants would be arriving in Fiji.

And while Alex had given her his rose the night before, he’d also made it clear he was not romantically interested and just wanted to be friends.

‘Obviously we’ve talked a few times and there’s nothing there, so what’s the point of sticking around?’ she told him. ‘I gotta go for someone who can handle me.’ 

‘That’s it. Fair enough. If you want to go home, I’m more than happy to go home as well,’ Alex replied.
