Sisters before misters! Whitney Bischoff and Becca Tilley may have been competitors on Season 19 of The Bachelor, but they were also friends — and that friendship didn't wane just because Bischoff walked away with a ring from Chris Soules, aka Prince Farming.
In fact, Soules' exes — he and fertility nurse Bischoff split last month — have stayed close since the show ended. They even hung out together in Chicago on Sunday, June 14, along with another former romantic rival: none other than current Bachelorette Kaitlyn Bristowe.
According to their tweets, the trio met up in Bischoff's hometown for an early birthday celebration. (Bristowe and Bischoff turn 30 on June 19 and 24, respectively.)
"I'm about to get on a plane to go see @whitbisch and @kaitlynbristowe in Chicago – I literally might need to be sedated I'm so excited!" Season 19 runner-up Tilley wrote on Twitter.
She later posted a photo collage of herself with the ladies on Instagram. "Chitown – you rule!" she captioned the pic, tagging her pals.
Bischoff got in on the Instagram action, too, sharing a black-and-white shot of the group out on the town. "Reunited and it feels so good!" she wrote, adding a heart emoji and the hashtag "#happybirthdaytome."
A die-hard Blackhawks fan, she also tweeted a plea for tickets to the June 15 Stanley Cup Finals game between the Hawks and the Tampa Bay Lightning. "All @kaitlynbristowe and I want for our 30th are 3 tix to @NHLBlackhawks game tomorrow!" she begged. "Pretty please? @beccatilley5 is our plus 1."
Bischoff has been keeping busy with her girlfriends since announcing her split from Soules on May 28, two months after Bachelor fans watched them get engaged on the Season 19 finale. In a statement to Us Weekly at the time, the couple said they'd decided to "mutually and amicably" end their engagement. "They part ways with nothing but respect and admiration for one another and will continue to be supportive friends," the statement read.
Soules, for his part, had some company of his own on Sunday. The former Bachelorette contestant was spotted at a table with four ladies at New York City hot spot Great Banks.
