Ultimate Surfer Dates A-List Celebrity?

StabMZ is on the case.

Tia Blanco, winner of ABC’s Ultimate Surfer reality shows, takes the gold jersey for the best celebrity pull.

Say what you will about the show’s 0.29 rating, cringy “challenges”, and jumbled storyline (or lack thereof), but the commercialization of surfing has opened doors for our kind into the mainstream. 

Want proof? According to a profusely accurate source, TMZ, Tia has started dating A-list TV star, model, and disc jockey Brody Jenner. Brody is the son of Caitlyn Jenner and has all the important defining elements of Hollywood royalty – including a nice jawline. 

In a recent article, TMZ stated that Brody and Tia met in Hawaii last month during Brody’s family vacation. The cliche goes —  they felt an instant connection with their shared love of ocean, surfing, etc…

The suffocating instagram comments and Erewhon sightings indicate new romance has lasted, so far at least. 

We asked Tia to confirm or deny her budding romance, to which she replied: [heart emoji] [heart emoji] [heart emoji].

Brody Jenner is not the only 38-year-old Malibu millionaire caught rinsing the surf pool. Last September, Jonah Hill  started dating his surf instructor Sarah Brady. I guess those lessons went fairly well – Stab has received an insider tip that Jonah absolutely shreds Little Dume alongside DJ Diplo, who is presumably on the prowl for his own sandy-haired queen.
