JoJo Fletcher and Jordan Rodgers are still together and very much in love. Contrary to reports saying that The Bachelorette couple has long called the engagement off, Fletcher and Rodgers insisted that the wedding is still happening in 2017.
According to E! News, JoJo Fletcher and Jordan Rodgers packed on the PDA at the recent iHeartRadio Music Festival in Los Angeles. The engaged couple reportedly kissed and held hands the entire time. Even though some of The Bachelorette 2016 contestants attended the event, including Luke Pell, Chase McNary, Wells Adams, and Robby Hayes, an insider told the publication that everyone was hanging out and totally fine.
“There was no tension,” the source said.
In spite of their constant PDA, some were still not convinced that Fletcher and Rodgers are in it for the long haul. Insiders, including The Bachelorette 2016 villain Chad Johnson speculated that Fletcher only chose Rodgers over Hayes because she wanted to make a career for herself when the reality show is over. Johnson told People that having a famous brother like Aaron will pave the way for more endorsement deals to come their way.
“Jordan has the most marketability. Is she looking for a career out of this? If so, she should pick Jordan. His brother is Aaron Rodgers. If you choose him, you’re going to get endorsement deals,” he explained.
Two months after The Bachelorette 2016 finale aired, a few people are still in doubt of JoJo Fletcher and Jordan Rodgers’ relationship. An insider told E! News that even their family and closest friends are not entirely sure where their relationship is heading.
“There are people who know Jordan and JoJo who still don’t know what to make of them. On the surface, they act happy and in-sync. But it’s sometimes hard to tell if it’s real or not. If this relationship doesn’t work out, both of them—JoJo especially—would loathe hearing the words, ‘I told you so.'”
It seems like news about the split will only stop after Rodgers and Fletcher tie the knot. The couple, however, seemed confident about their relationship, making a bet with E! News that they would still be together in 2017.
“I vow that if we are not together one year from now, we’ll both, obviously separately if we’re not together, we’ll do 1,000 jumping jacks for E! News,” Fletcher said.
“I’ll do it in a man thong, sure. Let’s up the stakes!” Rodgers added.
While details of the wedding remain scarce, Fletcher and Rodgers assured The Bachelorette fans that a ceremony will happen in 2017. They even hinted that there could be a wedding special, adding that they will be happy to share the big day with their fans who have supported their love story since day one. Fletcher, however, said that they were in no rush to get married. She explained that they were just having the time of their lives going on dates, enjoying each other’s company, and getting to know each other a bit better.
If everything were up to Rodgers, the football analyst would have wanted a quick wedding ceremony in Las Vegas. Fletcher told People that her fiance has been asking her to elope since they got engaged but she would repeatedly turn him down, explaining that that’s just not how she imagined her big day to be like.
“Jordan keeps saying, ‘Let’s go to Vegas!’ He’s trying to elope every other day. I’m like, ‘That’s not how I want to do a wedding. I’ve waited my whole life for this!'”
