10. How They Really Met
Due to the way filming works for the stars, fans never really got to see how Javi and Kailyn met. Audiences are first introduced to Javi in season three episode ten when they go on a group bowling date, but the story of how they got together started way before then. The pair first met when Kailyn was working in a clothing store and in her book “Pride over Pity” she revealed she convinced him to buy a shirt that cost almost $100 adding that “he looked about 15 so I assumed his dad was paying for it.” As it turns out, he was not 15 and came back the next day to ask Kailyn if he could take her out to ice cream because she had told him while he was shopping that she was getting her wisdom teeth out.
