After dealing with the heartache of being rejected by Ali Fedotowsky on The Bachelorette, Chris Lambton has moved on and is now engaged to (ironically, enough) former The Bachelor and Bachelor Pad contestant Peyton Wright.

The couple has much in common, as they were both rejected in front of millions on TV, however, they have moved on to find what appears to be real love without the glare of the spotlight. Wright, 28, was rejected by Andy Baldwin on The Bachelorbefore dating Lambton last fall. Lambton and Wright decided to go public with their relationship in January.

In fact, Lambton was almost the new Bachelor for the 15th season of the show -- but turned down the offer! The Bachelor instead was Brad Womack, who has reportedly already broken it off with the "winner" of the show, Emily Maynard.

"That's just not me," Lambton, 34, told People of his decision to turn down the show. "Sitting at home and watching the season with my family weirded me out. I wanted to find love on my own and not in that type of situation, so I said, 'You know what? I'm not going to do it.'"

It looks like he found it! He toldLife & Stylemagazine: "I found the love of my life in Peyton. We are so incredibly happy together. She was worth the wait."

Peyton echoed his sentiments, tweeting: "Thank you everyone! Chris and I are so happy!!!"
