During an Instagram Live session with pal Connor Saeli on Sunday, Mike gushed about the 28-year-old Chicago-based attorney who just appeared on Peter Weber's season of The Bachelor. (Ironically, Mike just visited Chicago a week ago based on his Instagram activity).

"I think Kelley has amazing uh, what do you call it, dimples?" Mike, 32, said, according to Us Weekly.

Mike and Connor, 25, competed against each other for Hannah Brown's heart on The Bachelorette's fifteenth season last year and then looked for love on Season 6 of Bachelor in Paradise in the summer.

During Mike's stint on Paradise, he got involved with NBA dancer Sydney Lotuaco. But after that relationship didn't work out, Mike became a frontrunner to star on The Bachelor's Season 24th season.

When The Bachelor role ultimately went to Pilot Pete, Mike had a highly-publicized brief fling with superstar Demi Lovato.

Connor -- who hinted during the session he has a romance brewing with Madison Prewett -- pressed for more information, but Mike chose to play it cool when it comes to his feelings about Kelley, who became known for her intelligence and confidence on the franchise.

"I think that she's a little badass, that's for sure," Mike reportedly noted. "That's all I'm gonna say."

Kelley got eliminated by Peter before hometown dates on The Bachelor's 24th edition, but Peter's mother Barbara Weber claims Kelley was her favorite contestant.

"I think that Peter did some things that I may do differently, and that's no dig on the homie -- it's just, we’re different people, you know?" Mike reportedly said on Sunday.

"You would do different things than I would. I think that there were some cuties that Peter let go kind of early. Look that was a full on answer. That was no sugar-coating it."

Kelley was recently linked to The Bachelor's Season 21 star Nick Viall after franchise host Chris Harrison noted they got "so cozy" at a party he hosted in Los Angeles on March 11.

Nick and Kelley first sparked dating rumors when they both posted a photo with each other from the event.

Kelley in a sexy green dress and Nick in a white T-shirt and gray jacket were leaning against each other in the picture, but they were both keeping their hands to themselves.

Nick captioned the photo, "She's not with Peter," and Chris noticeably commented on it, "Loved seeing you guys get so cozy last night. Here for it."

However, Nick shut down speculation on an episode of his The Viall Files podcast.

"I met Kelley at Chris' event. She's a nice person. She didn't disappoint in person," Nick, 39, said.

"I thought she'd be cool in person. Everyone likes to think that there's always something going on -- and there's not... I really enjoyed getting to meet Kelley. She's wonderful in person."

Nick admitted on his podcast he knew posting the photo with Kelley would probably cause a stir.

"When I posted the photo with Kelley, I was totally aware of what people might say," Nick acknowledged.

Kelley was rumored to be secretly dating Peter while his season was airing, but she confirmed to E! News earlier this month that was far from the truth.

"I have heard that. I heard that I'm pregnant and I also heard that I'm with Peter right now. I'm not with Peter," Kelley insisted.

Kelley assured E! News, "I promise I'm not dating Peter. I'm not dating Peter... I think it's best for Peter to take some time to be by himself and figure out what he's doing, reflect on everything that's going on and just figure out what he wants."

Kelley departed The Bachelor feeling disappointed in Peter for not being mature enough for her or seeming ready for an engagement and serious commitment.
