Jimmy tells EW that he and Chelsea "are still really close" today.

"I mean, a lot of the reason why I chose her in the first place is because I felt I had a best friend in her," he says. "After the show, she wasn't the biggest Jimmy fan for a while, after our breakup and after our second breakup. We rekindled again a couple months back, before [the season came out] and it was more of, 'I don't want to go into this reunion cold turkey. If you don't want to be my friend, I totally respect it.'"

Jimmy admits he didn't know how Chelsea would respond, but it ended up being an even better reunion than he expected.

"We were supposed to have an hour lunch date, and it ended up being five hours of us just catching up and talking and a reminder of why we were so close," he says. "And it sucks that we went that far without being friends, but we've both been dealing with a lot recently. I'm very thankful that she's in my life and we have a good relationship because I'm leaning on her as much as she's leaning on me at this point."
