Looks like she’ll be celebrating Valentine’s Day with someone new! Former Bachelor star Taylor Nolan and Bachelorette alum Derek Peth had one of the most successful romances on Season 4 of ABC’s spin-off Bachelor in Paradise. But while they were the only couple to get engaged on the Season 4 finale, their love didn’t last after they left paradise and they split last summer. Now, seven months after their split, Taylor confirmed to E! News that she is dating again.
Taylor, 25, told E! News that she is “very happy” with her new man. But she is still in the very early stages of their relationship, and she wouldn’t necessarily call her new boo her “boyfriend” just yet.
But even though it’s still early on, insiders say Taylor is smitten with her mystery man. “Taylor finds her new man intelligent and funny, and is excited to see where things go from here,” one source said.
While Taylor seemed to play coy about her relationship, the same source said that things are “becoming more serious. It’s very new and recent, but they have seen each other multiple times and talk every day.”
The identity of her new man still remains a mystery, but Tay and her pals like to call him “Canada Man,” according to E! News. He is currently working on a start-up in LA, and Taylor visits him from her hometown of Seattle. She also recently discussed her new beau on an episode of her podcast, “Let’s Talk About it With Taylor Nolan.”

#CanadaMan has turned me into quite the little snow bunny 🐰❄️ What better way to spend my last day in Ottawa than visiting the LARGEST spa in North America?! The saunas were wonderful, the hot tubs were amazing, and the food was banging! Definitely a must-do when visiting Ottawa 😊
Taylor has yet to go Instagram official with her new boo, but that hasn’t stopped her from teasing fans on social media. On January 3, she shared a gorgeous photo of herself and wrote, “When he says it’s his favorite photo, you post it. #TBT #CanadaMan.”
She shared another photo on January 9, of herself wearing a one-piece swimsuit standing on a snowy balcony. “#CanadaMan has turned me into quite the little snow bunny 🐰❄️,” she wrote in the caption. “What better way to spend my last day in Ottawa than visiting the LARGEST [sic] spa in North America?! The saunas were wonderful, the hot tubs were amazing, and the food was banging! Definitely a must-do when visiting Ottawa.” We can’t wait to see what Canada Man looks like!
