The woman who kissed Art Green and dated current Bachelor Jordan Mauger may have finally found her match. Former Bachelorette Chrystal Chenery is dating well-known Auckland real estate agent Ricky Cave.

Rumours swirled earlier this month when the pair were spotted holidaying at the luxury Bay of Islands Resort, Eagles Nest, and now Spy can confirm the romance.

Chenery has picked well in Cave, who is making top dollar selling multimillion-dollar homes in Auckland's Eastern suburbs.

His business, Ricky Cave Real Estate, is part of the team at Ray White Remuera. Cave is its number one salesperson and the office is also number one out of 1000 offices worldwide.

Thirty-year-old, Aston Martin-driving Cave - who made Spy's "Auckland Power List" last year - considers former politician John Banks a friend and a mentor.

Chenery has moved into Cave's plush Mission Bay pad and last weekend the two had another getaway to Cave's beach house in Pauanui.

When asked about their relationship, the couple said they were "enjoying each other's company at the moment and having a lot of fun".

Spy hears the couple are both from Christchurch and knew each other before Chenery shot to fame on The Bachelor.

So has Cave tamed the feisty Chenery? Kind of.

This week Chenery caused a social media frenzy when she posted a picture of Mauger and herself when Mauger was carrying a few more kilos.

In her post she said: "Jordan likes bitches ... So I'm backing Naz to win #bitchlorette."

Sensing the backlash an hour later, Chenery posted another more flattering picture saying she wished Naz and Jordan all the best.
