It looks like most of the leading women from Arie Luyendyk Jr.'s season of The Bachelor have moved on from his famed "pillow lips." Becca Kufrin is happily engaged to Garrett Yrigoyen, Kendall Long is still going strong with Grocery Store Joe after a whirlwind stint on Bachelor in Paradise, Bekah Martinez is pregnant with her first child, and now Tia Booth has a new man in her life.
The girl-next-door from Arkansas is dating Cory Cooper, a guy from Tennessee who somewhat surprisingly doesn't seem to have ties to the Bachelor franchise. He attended Carson-Newman University and is currently a co-owner and executive vice president of his family company, Cooper Steel. We can't tell much more about Cory from his Instagram, as he's not much of an avid photo-poster, but it does look like he enjoys hanging with friends, family, and, of course, Tia. He's shared a couple of photos with the former Bachelor contestant so far, with one caption referring to her as an "unforgettable person." Aww!
To refresh your memory on Tia's track record with the Bachelor franchise, it began when she made it to all the way to hometown dates during Arie's season, only to be sent home heartbroken. Then she was linked to Colton Underwood, a contestant on her pal Becca Kufrin's season of The Bachelorette. The two attempted to rekindle the flame during season five of Bachelor in Paradise, where Tia also had a brief fling with Chris Randone, but she left the beach in Mexico alone shortly after Colton did.
We're more than happy to see that Tia has officially moved on from her past — conveniently just in time for Colton's season of The Bachelor, might I add. Ahead, see the few glimpses we've gotten at Tia and Cory's relationship so far.
