The Golden Bachelor Gerry Turner excitedly shared on Thursday that he recently got to meet Kris Jenner.
The 72-year-old hunk from Iowa — who thinks he’s met ‘the one’ on the hit dating show — uploaded a picture of himself posing with his arm wrapped around the ‘momager,’ 67, to Instagram.
‘I met Kris! We both have shows on tonight you can watch,’ Turner wrote in the caption.
He was referring to this week’s episode of the Golden Bachelor and Hulu’s The Kardashians, both of which aired Thursday.
He also made himself an honorary Kardashian as he jokingly told his followers to ‘Forever call me Kerry’
Epic! The Golden Bachelor Gerry Turner excitedly shared on Thursday that he recently got to meet famous ‘momager’ Kris Jenner
It was revealed in July that Turner had been chosen as the first senior lead for The Golden Bachelor, which is a spinoff of the hit ABC show The Bachelor.
Turner is a widow; his wife (and high school sweetheart) Toni died in 2017.
At the time he revealed that he was looking for a ‘high-energy’ partner and hoped to find ‘the one’ among the 22 women vying for his heart.
Episode five aired Thursday and saw Turner eliminate three of the six women remaining on the show.
Though Turner is on a quest for love, Kris has been in a longterm relationship with business man Corey Gamble, 42, since 2014.
The two began dating shortly after Kris’ split from Caitlyn Jenner in 2013 after 23 years of marriage.
Prior to Caitlyn, Kris was married to the late attorney Robert Kardashian Sr., who was a part of O.J. Simpson’s ‘Dream Team’ of lawyers that represented him in 1995 as he faced murder charges for the brutal killings of his ex-wife Nicole Brown Simpson and her friend Ron Goldman. He was acquitted.
Kris and Robert had tied the knot in 1978 and later split after she admitted to cheating on him with soccer player Todd Waterman in 1989.
Robert was the one to file for divorce and it was finalized in 1991.
Despite the split, Kris managed to form an amicable co-parenting relationship with Robert for the sake of their four children: Kourtney, 44, Kim, 43, Khloe, 39, and Robert, 36.
Robert tragically passed away in September 2003 from esophageal cancer just two months after receiving the diagnosis. He was 59.
On last week’s episode of The Kardashians, Kris revealed that cheating on Robert is her ‘life’s biggest regret.’
She made the confession to her youngest daughter Khloe as she probed her mother about her infidelity, asking what her ‘mindset’ was when she cheated.
Kris was left flabbergasted by the questioning but agreed to talk candidly about her affair with Waterman.
Khloe began by saying: ‘When you did that, with my dad, and you had four kids, and you had a family, this whole thing. Yes, I know you were really young, which is a big factor.’

The affair reportedly began when Kris was 34 years of age, and she responded: ‘I think being really young and dumb is something that plays into it because you don’t really understand the consequences of your actions.’
Khloe then asked: ‘But what was my dad not doing that made you want to look elsewhere?’
Kris responded: ‘I don’t know because he was such a great husband and such a great dad and I think that I fell into a situation where I thought that the grass was greener somewhere else. And I made a huge mistake. That’s like my life’s biggest regret.’
Kris added in confession, ‘When I got divorced, Robert and I became best friends. We talked on the phone all day long, helped each other through things all the time and I did have regrets.
‘I thought, ‘Wow, what was I thinking?’ So I just want Khloe to be really careful when she makes these decisions and she has to let somebody go.’
Kris added back at home: ‘You know, I’m not proud of the way that I behaved at that time, but you know what, everything happens for a reason. I really do live my life by thinking God has a plan and without that whole thing happening, there never would have been Kendall and Kylie.’
Kris then sighed and told Khloe: ‘I just want you to be happy,’ as Khloe added: ‘I already have my happily ever after with my kids. I’m totally happy. When you have a partner, you know, I always put that person first, and I don’t want to put anyone first but my kids. Life is short. My kids are this age only for…’ as Kris finished, ‘a minute.’
‘Literally a blink of an eye. And I am proud of myself for being with them, like diving into them as much as I have because it’s really easy to just be like, ‘No, someone else do it.’ That’s not what I want to do in my life right now and it’s not who I’ve ever been.’
Kris added: ‘But how amazing for your kids and how amazing to have this experience with them and be so present, because a lot of people aren’t.’

Kris said in confession: ‘I move very fast and make decisions quickly. Khloe taking her time, that’s amazing, and I understand where she’s at, and I think it’s at a really healthy place. She is one of the strongest people I’ve ever met.’
Khloe told Kris: ‘I want to just enjoy my life with them and if I find a guy, then I’ll find a guy. That’s not my top priority, but I genuinely don’t want anything right now. I don’t want the responsibility of another person right now, so give me time.’
‘Deal,’ Kris said to her daughter.
While Kris had admitted to the affair in her 2011 book, she disguised his identity as Ryan Lowe, before Waterman came forward in a January 2012 Daily Mail interview.
