He almost married a "Bachelorette," but now, Jef Holm is embracing life as a bachelor.
The 26-year-old reality personality, who was previously engaged to Season 8 "Bachelorette" Emily Maynard, was spotted at the Sundance Film Festival this week "living it up" with a bevy of ladies, according to Us Weekly.
Early in the week, Jef was spotted with "a gaggle of girls" at a Park City, Utah nightclub and seemed to be "enjoying all the attention," the mag reported.
A few days later, he was "swarmed" by female fans at a Sundance gift lounge, where he revealed that he is still close with former fiancée Emily.
"[I] dated the s**t out of her. But we're still good friends," he told the mag.
As previously reported on AccessHollywood.com, Jef and Emily announced they had ended their engagement back in October.
"Emily and I are great friends and I hope we can continue to be friends forever," Jef said in a statement at the time. "Everyone wants a salacious story to break, but the truth is we are just two people who fell in love and tried our hardest to make it work. I will always love her."
