No hard feelings! JoJo Fletcher and her Bachelor ex-boyfriend Ben Higgins were spotted grabbing lunch with their respective significant others, Jordan Rodgers and Lauren Bushnell, at Katsuya Hollywood on Thursday, August 4. The season 20 Bachelor and his runner-up dined on plates of crispy rice and rock shrimp.
According to a source, the couples were filming a scene for Higgins and Bushnell’s upcoming Freeform docuseries, Ben and Lauren: Happily Ever After. The onlooker tells Us Weekly they seemed genuinely happy to be eating together and spoke candidly about their experiences on the ABC dating shows. “Ben was saying how happy he was for JoJo that she found in Jordan what he has with Lauren,” the eyewitness says.
As the mimosas flowed, Fletcher and Bushnell compared their Neil Lane diamonds, and the season 12 Bachelorette and her SEC college-football analyst fiancé excitedly chatted about their upcoming move to Dallas. The double date also featured plenty of cheerful toasts to each couple’s future.
Rodgers told Chris Harrison during the After the Final Rose special on Monday, August 1, that his bags were packed, and that he and Fletcher had bought a house in Dallas. During an August 2 conference call, he added: “We’re focusing on moving, getting my bags, getting settled in a place and then getting our families together, getting our friends together. That’s what we’re really looking forward to.”
The former pro quarterback, 27, proposed to the 25-year-old real estate developer during The Bachelorette’s romantic season finale on August 1. Both stars have since shared many private moments together via Instagram and Snapchat.
Higgins famously told Fletcher he loved her and then chose Bushnell in the devastating season 20 finale in March 2016.
Ben and Lauren: Happily Ever After premieres on Freeform in October.
