Robby Hayes’s Dating History: His Pre-‘Bachelorette’ 2016 Love Life Revealed


Robby Hayes is kind of "that guy" this Bachelorette 2016 season. And we're not talking about the one who got too drunk in the premiere or confessed his love right away.

The 27-year-old contestant is the guy who may or may not have a girlfriend back home. According to Reality Steve, Robby was in a four year relationship with ex-girlfriend Hope Higginbotham before heading to the mansion.

But the part that sounds extra weird is the two apparently broke up in January, right around the time casting for JoJo Fletcher's season was happening!

The spoiler king says, "I’ve been told she had no idea he was on the show until after he’d already left. He never told her he had been talking to the show, was thinking of going on, or had agreed to do it."

It sounds like Robby either had a girlfriend, found out about the Bachelorette, and then ran for the hills, or went through a breakup ironically at the same time of casting and then ran for the hills.

Either way, we don't think JoJo is going to be too pleased when she finds out about this one.

And we don't think Robby's ex will be too thrilled watching the show, either! The brunette babe happens to look a lot like JoJo and, according to Instagram, she also works in real estate. We're sensing a theme here!

Based on Robby's social media photos, it looks like he and Hope did everything together while they were still dating. There are pics of them spending Easter and Christmas together, going to Braves games, hitting up the gym, and going on romantic vacations as a couple.

Way too blessed this Christmas! @hopealverta #merrychristmas #onesies #jumpinjammerz

We can't wait to see how this all plays out between Robby and JoJo!

The Bachelorette airs on Mondays at 8 p.m. ET on ABC.
