‘The Bachelorette’: Jordan Rodgers Has Learned to Stop 1 Habit That Annoys JoJo Fletcher
The Bachelorette couple JoJo Fletcher and Jordan Rodgers are still planning to get married in May. Before the big day, they’ve already hosted another relationship show. The Big D will air on TBS this summer. Since their own Bachelorette days, Fletcher and Rodgers have had to adjust to real life together.
Fletcher and Rodgers were on a Television Critics Association Zoom panel for The Big D on Feb. 14. The couple also filled reporters in on how their relationship has evolved off camera since The Bachelorette. Rodgers copped to one annoying habit he’s trying to break.
Jordan Rodgers’ habit that annoys JoJo Fletcher
When they were on The Bachelorette, the show provided them with extravagant dates and a mansion to live in between them. Living at home together, eating cereal for breakfast is less peaceful.
“I also learned that I can’t clink the bowl as much when I’m eating cereal because someone gets really annoyed,” Rodgers said. “I’m like, ‘Well, I got to get it all out of there. I’m not wasting the milk, that’s the best part, all the sugar is [dissolved].”
Fletcher confirmed her disapproval.
“Ugh,” she said. “So annoying when he does it.”
Post ‘The Bachelorette,’ Jordan Rodgers and JoJo Fletcher learned to communicate
There’s also a big difference between competing for roses and eliminating the competition vs. living together day to day. Fletcher said that was an adjustment after The Bachelorette too.
“We have two completely different styles of communicating,” Fletcher said. “In that first year, because we couldn’t figure it out, it led to resentment in a lot of situations and that was a huge hurdle that we had to learn how to overcome. And so a part of our relationship was obviously letting go of any of that resentment that occurred in that first year because we didn’t have it figured out, because there was a lot of pressure, there was a lot of eyes on us to be perfect, this perfect couple. That’s not realistic. That’s not real life.”
‘The Bachelorette’ couple is still learning
Between communicating and cereal, Rodgers and Fletcher still have a long way to go. Rodgers agreed the first year after The Bachelorette was the hardest.
“Still working through it, but definitely that first year for sure,” Rodgers said.
Fletcher said learning to compromise has been an ongoing process, but the wedding is still on. On The Big D, Fletcher and Rodgers host a dating show with divorced couples, but they are still in this together.
“You just learn, you have to learn to compromise in relationships,” Fletcher said. “You have to obviously stay true to what is important to you and your values, but you’ve got to learn to compromise and I think that’s something that we definitely learned.”
