Fans are invested in Love Is Blind. Understatement of the year? Probably!

We even want to know who contestants that left Season 6 early are dating — like Jess. Is she coupled up with another former star of the highly addictive Netflix reality dating show? Could she have developed a connection with someone from the pods who is not, gasp, Jimmy? Or is Jess with Harry Jowsey from Too Hot to Handle?

Either way, one thing is certain: There seems to be life after losing Jimmy, who decided to propose to Chelsea (aka Megan Fox) instead of Jess, leaving her brokenhearted.

So, who is Jess from 'Love Is Blind' dating after the show?

Jess hasn't been ready to reveal all about her love life post–Season 6, but there's a good reason for keeping her cards close to her Vestal (get it?).

As the mom of one told Nick Viall on his popular podcast, The Viall Files, in February 2024, "I'm still trying to sort things out right now."

She also said that when she officially gets in a relationship, the public will definitely know: "Believe me, the world will be sick of me when I'm dating someone."

She doubled down on this the following month in a fun TikTok video with a text overlay that reads, "Are you in a relationship?" In the video, she mouths along to a voice-over that says, "No; it was no 15 minutes ago, and it's no now. Like, every time..."

She added in the caption: "Trust, y'all will know when someone has me wifed up. Let's focus on the ones who actually might be. 😍"

So, while she may not be in a relationship right now, it looks like there might be a possible suitor (or suitors?) behind the scenes.

Fans are divided on who her potential connection is with. Is Jess exploring a romance with Australian hottie Harry as was previously reported? Or is the guy Ariel from her season of Love Is Blind?

Let's consider both possibilities, shall we?

Jess was previously spotted with Harry Jowsey.

Jess is rumored to be appearing on Season 2 of Perfect Match coupled up with none other than Harry, who would definitely be her type judging by what she told Nick — and whom she was photographed getting up close and personal with on the beach.

"I have a super specific type, actually, like, extremely tall — at least 6'2 because most of my exes are 6'4 [or] 6'5," the long-haired beauty confessed on Nick's podcast, adding that she likes a man with a beard and tattoos.

Some fan theories have Jess coupled up with 'Love Is Blind' alum Ariel.

While speaking with Nick, what Jess was willing to confirm is that a person she is interested in is from the cast of Love Is Blind.

"I had another strong connection," Jess told Nick. "You could probably use context clues if you look at the cast, but I'm not saying any names."

On social media, fan theories are saying that Ariel and Jess may have gotten further if he had been able to meet her 10-year-old daughter Autumn before an engagement.

It's also being suggested that Netflix didn't show much content with Jess and Ariel — however, a connection developed beyond what may have been previously understood.

In the end, at some point, fans are going to get answers about Jess's love life.

"It's going to be so in everyone's face. I'm going to be so public and so proud of it, you will know," Jess told Nick.

OK, well, when that day comes, Jess, we'll be here for it!
