Chris Bukowski has tried his luck a few times within the Bachelor franchise to find love.

However, every time he walks away from the idea of a long-term relationship.

But maybe Chris doesn’t need a reality television show to find love.

This weekend, Chris and former Bachelor contestant Katrina Badowski were photographed together at JJ Lane’s wedding.

She appeared on Peter Weber’s season but was sent home the first night.

Because of this photo, there are numerous reports online about them being a new couple and them making it Instagram official.

Chris Bukowski and Katrina Badowski posed for a photo, a photo that Katrina shared on her Instagram with the caption, “The Owskis.”

Two weeks ago, the two went out for dinner on Valentine’s Day. They dined in Chicago at Bandit, where they flirted.

A source tells PEOPLE magazine that they didn’t hold hands. But it appears that sparks did fly as they seemingly went to the wedding as a couple.

However, Chris likes to keep people guessing. When Clare was announced as the new Bachelorette this morning, he shared that she will be amazing.

When someone asked if he was going to be on the season, he couldn’t help but share an emoji that hinted he had a secret.

Chris first entered The Bachelor franchise after he appeared on Emily Maynard’s season. He was sent home Week 8 and then headed to the brief spin-off, Bachelor Bad.

On Season 10 of The Bachelorette, he tried to meet Andi Dorfman, but she sent him home before meeting him.

He then tried to find love on Bachelor In Paradise. He appeared on Seasons 1 and 2 but went home before finding love.

It wasn’t until he went on Season 6 of Bachelor in Paradise that he met Katie Morton. The two got engaged, and despite a brief argument on the reunion special, the two remained together.

Then, in December, came an update from the couple. They decided to split. Distance appeared to be an issue, as he remained in Chicago, and she stayed in Los Angeles.

One of the many lessons this life has taught us is that it’s okay to be stubborn in the pursuit of happiness. To fight for what is real and good, and that often times the hardest thing and the right thing are the same. We’ve reached a point in our story where we agree it’s best to go our separate ways. We have chosen to love and respect each other as friends because that’s the base of our relationship, and it’s what is most natural for us. We are incredibly thankful for the support we’ve received from our family, friends and everyone who supported us throughout our journey – from paradise to this moment. We are grateful for everything that we’ve learned in this chapter, and are hopeful for what is to come in life and in love for both of us.

The two hadn’t been too open about their relationship. They felt they could keep private despite meeting on a television show.

Perhaps Chris and Katrina are keeping their romance private for now, as it was just three months ago that Chris was engaged.

The Bachelor airs Mondays at 8/7c on ABC.
