There’s a new reality star couple in town!
On Monday, “Bachelorette” alum Robby Hayes, 30, and “Siesta Key” star Juliette Porter confirmed their relationship on Instagram.
Juliette shared a photo of them kissing on the beach on a sunny day in Siesta Key. She used two emojis to describe the photo, “💙🐠.”
Robby shared the photo in his Instagram story, adding, “Life’s a beach with this one 💙.”
In another group shot with Juliette, Kelsey Owens and Joe Jenkins, he wrote on Instagram, “When the sun shines, we’ll shine together.”
Last month, Robby and Juliette spent time together at Stagecoach, even posing at the Neon Carnival with “POKÉMON Detective Pikachu” and the LG Mobile Experience.
The pair was reportedly introduced by Kelsey, Juliette’s “Siesta Key” co-star. A source told E! News, “They have been dating for about two months now and are officially exclusive. They have already taken several trips together and have spent a lot of time in a short two-month period.”
Along with their relationship “really working,” Juliette’s friends seem to approve. Despite his not always positive reputation on “Bachelor in Paradise,” her friends “all adore him.”
A year ago, Robby sparked romance rumors with “Vanderpump Rules” star Scheana Marie when they vacationed together in Oahu. In March, Scheana claimed on People TV that he ghosted her, adding, “I haven’t spoken to him in five months… I think he just wanted some camera time.”
In 2017, Robby briefly dated “Bachelor in Paradise” star Amanda Stanton, but they broke up before the “BIP” reunion show. She told E! News, “I’m totally open to being friends with him. I don’t have any hard feelings towards him. It’s a little frustrating as a girl, and I think a lot of girls can relate to putting all your effort into somebody and maybe them not doing the same and kind of feeling like you wasted your time.”
Things turned ugly once he posted screenshots of their text conversations after she indirectly called him out. In a now-deleted tweet, she wrote, “I got a new debit card last month and got an email from an ex this morning forwarding me an email that his Disneyland Annual Pass payment was declined & to update my card info… I sure know how to pick em.”
He responded, tweeting, “Lol is this how it happened or was I was trying to help you poor thing? Let’s evaluate below everyone 🙂 (Read the whole thing).”

After seeing his tweets, Amanda told E! News, “I didn’t expect him to even see it, let alone respond in the extreme way that he did. It’s a shame he still harbors such harsh emotions towards me. I deleted the tweets because honestly, I don’t like to or want to associate myself with him, or either of my relationships from the show for that matter anymore.”
Before they split, Robby wouldn’t confirm or deny their relationship, telling “Extra” at the TCL USA TV launch party, “Maybe tonight we took an L, but next week we will bounce back.”
