JoJo Fletcher and Jordan Rodgers got engaged during the finale of ABC’s The Bachelorette 2016 season and they are seemingly having a great time being public now as a couple. The duo faced some bumps in the road as their journey aired, but they have said that they are happy together and planning for the future. What have JoJo and Jordan been up to since the final episode aired?
Jordan and JoJo did the typical media rounds after the Bachelorette finale, airing on numerous shows to chat about their relationship. As everybody saw during the After the Final Rose special, Fletcher and Rodgers detailed that they got a house together in Dallas where she is from, and he said that he already had his bags packed and would be moving there immediately.
Gossip guru “Reality Steve” shared the scoop on JoJo and Jordan’s new home, sharing a link from D Magazine that showcased the new place in East Dallas that they will be sharing. It seems that Fletcher and Rodgers are renting this modest home, rather than buying, and Bachelorette fans will be anxious to see the two hit Dallas together and get settled.
Before heading home to Dallas, Fletcher and Rodgers have been traveling a bit and Bachelorette fans have been seeing plenty of updates via social media. While in California, the two hit up Chipotle for a quick meal and as Us Weekly details, they were seen doing some furniture shopping together at Crate & Barrel in Beverly Hills.
In addition to furniture shopping, JoJo and Jordan met up with Bachelor lovebirds Ben Higgins and Lauren Bushnell for a bit. As Bachelorette fans saw, Ben and Lauren were in Los Angeles for the ATFR special and the quartet grabbed lunch at Katsuya Hollywood. Apparently, the gathering will be incorporated into Higgins and Bushnell’s upcoming show that is titled Ben and Lauren: Happily Ever After.
In addition to eating and shopping, Fletcher and Rodgers decided to take advantage of an engagement gift they received and then promptly promoted via their Instagram accounts. As Just Jared details, JoJo and Jordan spent a few days at a rental spot in Malibu that was quiet and right on the beach.
What comes next for the Bachelorette stars? JoJo and Jordan say that despite all of the rumors and drama off-screen that had people buzzing, they are in love and looking forward to a future together. They say that they aren’t ready to start planning a wedding yet, but they look toward 2017 as their time to walk down the aisle.
There are plenty of fans who doubt that they will make it that far, and Fletcher detailed during the ATFR that she was sad and frustrated by the perceived lack of support by fans. Will these two manage to prove their doubters wrong? Reality Steve had been hearing plenty of talk about a split heading into the finale, but at least for now, these two say that they are together, engaged and happy.
What comes next for Fletcher and Rodgers? He will be doing broadcast work for ESPN this fall covering SEC football, and she hinted that there is a chance she could end up on Dancing With the Stars. There are always rumors about the Bachelorette stars tackling DWTS, but in reality, the gals typically do not end up on the cast while several of the Bachelor leads have gone on to hit the dance floor.
Despite all of the gossip and drama that followed this couple during the season, particularly in relation to Rodgers’ alleged fidelity issues, the Bachelorette stars say that they are anxious to settle into life together, start planning their wedding, and eventually have a family with three kids. Will JoJo Fletcher and Jordan Rodgers go the distance, or will the rumors about a split on the horizon sooner rather than later come to fruition? Fans will be anxious to see what comes next for JoJo and Jordan once the dust settles and real life really begins for them.
