Tenley Molzahn and Kiptyn Locke have broken up after more than two years of dating.

The couple, who met during Bachelor Pad's first season in 2010 and finished as the runner-ups to the competition's $250,000 cash prize, apparently mutually decided to part ways.

"With love and respect, we decided to take a break in January. We are both focused on philanthropic and personal growth at this time, wishing each other the best. Thank you for respecting our privacy," the pair told People in a joint statement.

"Thank you for your support always."

Molzahn competed on Jake Pavelka's The Bachelor: On the Wings of Love season but failed to win his heart, as he selected Vienna Girardi over her during the fourteenth season's finale.

Locke was rejected by former The Bachelorette star Jillian Harris during the show's fifth edition. He finished as the runner-up behind winner Ed Swiderski.
