ABC's latest match made in TV heaven on "The Bachelor" may not have survived the show's two-month run.
It turns out, Sarah may already be with another guy, according to Nashville newspaper The Tennesseean.
The paper reports that she has been spotted canoodling with Matt Lauderdale, the roommate and business partner of Tennessee Titans star receiver Drew Bennett.
Lauderdale insists he and Stone are just pals.
"We're strictly just friends. I've been friends with Sarah for a long time," said Matt, adding that he and Sarah met through Bennett's girlfriend.
According to eyewitnesses who claim to know the pair, they've been seen hugging, flirting and looking "very much" like a couple at clubs, bars, restaurants and even in a 7 a.m. exercise class.
Lauderdale says the sightings are wrong.
"I hang out with Drew a lot, too, and I hope people don't say we're dating, too," he said.
In seasons past, the winner of the show and the new mate have usually made the rounds on TV talk shows and in print interviews. The conspicuous absence of any "Bachelor" media appearances this week immediately got the gossip mill spinning.
