The Aussie said, ‘It was part of the rules of that year, not that I told people that was happening. I just gave people a chance and then I learnt lots about myself.’
The comedienne added: ‘I did an experiment where I dated anyone who asked me out.
‘Don’t shut yourself off to love. I had lots of really good friends but I never allowed myself to get into relationships until the last few years. Life is short and you really have to go for it.’
Rebel previously dated actor Mickey Gooch Jr and stuntman Aden Stay, while Jacob previously had a romance with RHOBH Adrienne Maloof.
The blonde – who has been busy filming Pooch Perfect for ABC – lost almost 70lbs thanks to a new diet and plenty of exercise.

‘I’ve tried, like so many women out there, I’ve tried fads and diets and things before and I’m like, I need to do a really holistic approach to this, this time,’ she said.
The actress recently spoke about being treated differently since her dramatic weight loss.
She said on The Morning Crew with Hughesy, Ed and Erin that it was ‘interesting’ to see people’s attitudes change following her transformation.

‘Now that I’m in good shape, people offer to carry my groceries to the car and hold doors open for you,’ she added.
