JoJo Fletcher Addresses Elephant in Room on ‘Ben & Lauren’ Double Date (VIDEO)
Gotta love JoJo Fletcher — girlfriend doesn’t beat around the bush.
In this week’s Ben & Lauren: Happily Ever After, JoJo and Jordan Rodgers go on that highly-anticipated double date with ex Ben Higgins and Lauren Bushnell. And judging by a sneak peek, the Bachelorette doesn’t wait to address the elephant in the room.
“Were you annoyed with how much I talked about you this season?” the newly-engaged gal asks right away at the couples’ brunch.
Before Ben could answer, she continues, “I know all season I kept referencing you so much but if you think about it, it was the only experience I had to try to relate.”
“I understand so much more now the situation you were in when it came to Lauren and me. Just so much more respect for you because it is not easy and I totally get it all now,” she concludes.
Now that’s something we thought we’d never see happen! This is about as self-aware as the Bachelor franchise has ever been, allowing their stars to act like human beings with one another and not just brush everything under the rug for the “romance.”
Seems like the Denver hunk was happy about it, too, as he replies simply, “I appreciate that.”
That seemed to cut the tension, as JoJo then turned the subject to life after the show, asking “Now what?”
“Just normal life,” Lauren says, as her fiancé jokes about the two recently getting an air conditioner for their house.
Bachelor stars, they’re just like us, right?
Ben & Lauren: Happily Ever After? airs Tuesdays at 8 p.m. ET on Freeform.
