The Las Vegas resident, 35, opened up about his new love interest, Jess Caroline, during the season 5 premiere, which aired Sunday, June 14. Colt flew to Chicago to spend time with her and when they reunited in person, the duo packed on some serious PDA.
At the time of filming, she was on a J-1 visa, which is a non-immigrant visa issued by the United States to research scholars, professors and exchange visitors participating in programs that promote cultural exchange. Unfortunately, they were on a timeline because her J-1 visa expires in six months.
Colt and his leading lady appeared to be infatuated with each other, but there was one aspect that may get especially interesting: his mother, Debbie Johnson, didn’t know about Jess yet. However, he did drop a hint to his mom that he was eager to move on romantically following his divorce from Larissa Dos Santos Lima.
“I think I’m ready to start dating again,” he revealed. “To be honest with you, I’m lonely and I want someone to share my life with.”
The TLC alum couldn’t help but gush over his new girlfriend on the premiere, talking about all of her best qualities in the confessional. “Jess is beautiful. She’s 26. She has a rockin’ body. She has glasses and she loves cats. She lives in Chicago, but I met Jess once in Las Vegas,” Colt said.
“We just hit it off. Jess has a really good vibe about everything. She’s fun. She likes to party. I’m excited to just be with her,” he added.
Colt also claimed Jess is “way different” than his ex, highlighting they are “definitely on the same page in regards to intimacy.”
“She likes to have a good time,” the star noted, also sharing how “excited” he was to “get laid” again. “I feel like she’s a breath of fresh air. She’s given me life again.”
The feelings are mutual, considering she shared the same sentiments about her man. “I like Colt because Colt’s smart and funny and beautiful, [and has] beautiful eyes. And Colt loves cats,” the fashion design expert said. “I love Colt and it’s my boyfriend now,” Jess added. “And I love you. It’s good for me.”
News of the couple’s blossoming romance made headlines in July 2019 and now we’re getting to see how their love story unfolds.
Will they stick together or fall apart? Time will tell!
