Back in May, the reality star started posted inspirational messages on Instagram. On a video he took at the airport, he wrote, “It’s always darkest before the dawn. No matter what, please don’t give up. I promise it’ll get better. Have faith, in both your self and in the fact that everything happens for a reason.”

A few days after that, he posted a photo of blue skies and calm water, captioning it, “We all arise from our own ashes. Everything returns later in its changed form. A chapter has ended, swept away by the whirlwind. One door has closed but another has opened … and on the other side … my future. The ending is only the beginning.”

On Wednesday, June 26, fans seemed to discover just what — or who — was making Colt feel so introspective and optimistic. The star sparked dating rumors as a woman named Jess Caroline seemed to share in a Facebook group that she’d started seeing Colt.

In the caption, Jess wrote, “You are my person. Miss you.” Though it’s not clear exactly how long the couple has been together, they seem like they’re going pretty strong. So strong, in fact, that Colt was feeling artistically inspired.

On Instagram, he shared a painting he’d done of his new lady. “For those that don’t know. I enjoy drawing in my spare time,” the 34-year-old revealed. “I started originally as a way to handle stress and kill time.”

“I haven’t drawn in a while, but more recently I have started again,” he continued. “I guess you could say I found my muse.” How sweet is that? It seems that we’re not the only ones impressed by the sentiment.

“You are my person,” Jess said again, this time in the comments of Colt’s post. And that’s not the only sweet sentiment that she had to share. Confirming that she’d written the Facebook post about Colt, the Brazilian beauty had all kinds of nice things to say.

Telling the story about how they first met, the English translation of Jess’s post read, “I lost my flip flops at the pool party on my first date with him. I was barefoot, dirty feet, hair was a mess and super drunk.”

Falling in Love
“We are together for a while,” she continued. “[Anyone] who knows me knows that I’m chill and have good intentions, also that I don’t judge people’s choices. … I’m with him because I want and because he wants.”

“We have chemistry,” she explained. “If you say, ‘He’s ugly and fat,’ well, he can lose weight. The important thing is how he treats me. He makes me laugh and he’s nice. We like the same movies and songs.”

“I know about his past and have watched the show … I don’t defend him or her. It was just a relationship that didn’t work out and life goes on. I’m not going to be rude to anyone.”

“Let’s have some empathy to people and their choices,” Jess finished, cutting off any potential criticism of her man and his ex. “Let’s try to make things lighter and criticize less, please.”
When a fan asked how she felt about the rumors that Colt was seeing someone new, she didn’t have any problems with it. “Life goes on,” she shared, seemingly wishing her ex well.
