It was pretty clear from the outset that bald man Ryan Anderson was a massive front runner on this season of the reality show, and now New Idea claims their chemistry shouldn't come as a surprise to us folks watching at home...because apparently they had already met before the show.
A source told the mag that Angie had started following Ryan's dog rescue account on Instagram prior to the two even meeting.
Ladies Angie is on to something - a man who loves dogs is ALWAYS a keeper.
As well as Angie following one of Ryans Instagram pages, friends of Ryan told New Idea that the ambassador for an assistance dog charity (who wouldn't love him?) has been obsessed with Angie FOREVER.
The source told New Idea: "Word is they eventually met up in person a few times but nothing serious ever happened as they lived in different states."
Adding fuel to the gossip fire is the fact that there are since-deleted messages between Angie's BFF Yvie Jones and Ryan before he walked into the mansion.
"Yvie saw him comment on her Instagram that he wanted to apply and immediately encouraged it," the source said.
"Yvie knew how much of a fan Angie was of his and had witnessed their connection in real life, so she was ecstatic that he was thinking of applying. Yvie just adores him and so does Angie!"
WHAT'S MORE, the insider claims it was at Angie's request that Ryan come into the mansion as an intruder, after her bestie revealed her dog-loving crush was 100% keen on her.
"That’s why he came in late – to give him a better chance of developing a relationship with her," the source says.
"Producers tried to sweep the whole thing under the rug, but Angie and Ryan weren’t very good at downplaying their history."
"They tried to brush it off, but the boys pressed them for information and Ryan finally admitted that they’d spoken on Instagram!"
