Has Katie Thurston moved on from Blake Moynes with another 'Bachelorette' contestant?

Katie Thurston ended her season of The Bachelorette, which aired this summer, engaged to Blake Moynes, but the former couple jointly announced Oct. 25 that their relationship was over.

Not even one month later, E! News and Page Six are reporting that Thurston, 30, is dating John Hersey, whom she originally eliminated in the second week on The Bachelorette.

"Katie and John were mutually in the friend zone for months," an unnamed source told E! News, additionally noting that Thurston "has never been happier."

The source continued: "A lot has changed in the last four week. And it's been wild but exciting for those closest to them to witness."

Page Six's report also cites an unnamed insider: "It’s known Katie and John became close friends post-season. John has been there for her through all the major changes in her life, and they are excited to explore this newly found romantic connection."

Also on Tuesday (Nov. 23), Thurston more or less confirmed something is going on with Hersey by posting a video montage of their moments together set to Taylor Swift's "Begin Again," including footage from when he stepped out of the limo to meet her on The Bachelorette and she said, "That's my type. I think that's my type."

Hersey, 27, is a bartender from California.
