The pair met while filming season 7 of Bachelor in Paradise during summer 2021.
Although Kufrin and Jacobs got off to a rocky start, they formed a strong bond throughout the season. During the reality show’s final episode in October 2021, However, the former Bachelorette decided to call it quits with the real estate broker.
“I feel like you’re so good at being supportive and positive and surprising me in all of the best ways, but I feel like sometimes it’s too good to be true and that scares me,” she explained at the time. “I’ve been here twice now before, and I couldn’t leave here and feel OK about leaving with somebody that I don’t 100 percent fully know.”
After the episode aired on ABC, the network confirmed that the duo got back together off screen. That same month, Kufrin opened up about how the brief breakup pushed them to appreciate their relationship more.

The Minnesota native also recalled her reunion with Jacobs, adding, “We chatted until, like, three or four in the morning some nights and just talked about any and everything. The second I saw him — because I flew back to L.A. and then drove down to San Diego — I think right away he picked me up and kissed me and then we just had unlimited time to explore what this could be.”

“What a difference half a year makes,” she captioned a cute photo with Jacobs in December 2021 via Instagram. “These have been the best 6 months of my life, and that’s thanks to you, @thomasjacobs (and Leo & Sofia of course). 2021 rocks.”
