Sneaky, sneaky! Like other contestants before them, season 12 Bachelorette JoJo Fletcher and her fiancé, Jordan Rodgers, had to meet in private to keep their engagement a secret as the ABC series continued to air week after week. Now, the future spouses are revealing just what they did during their secret getaways.
“We’ve been in hiding, bouncing around in safe houses, pretty much. We [couldn’t] go outside,” Rodgers, 27, said during Live With Kelly on Tuesday, August 2, the morning after the finale aired and fans found out which guy Fletcher had chosen for her happily ever after.
Fletcher, 25, added, “Every couple of weeks, they put us in a house every weekend, and it was just us, and we watched movies.” Watch the newly-engaged couple discuss their secret meetings in the video above!
The couple binge-watched some TV shows too. “We had nothing to do besides just watch shows all day,” Fletcher told host Kelly Ripa. Rodgers chimed in: “[We watched] all four seasons of Bates Motel and American Horror Story.”
The former NFL quarterback did have some fun with his disguises, though. “There was one time she was staying at a hotel in Hollywood, and I [had] on a mullet wig and a trucker hat,” he recalled.
As Bachelor Nation fans know by now, Fletcher chose Rodgers over runner-up Robby Hayes during the Bachelorette finale on Monday. “When I first met Jordan, there was this easy comfortability with him. He was my best friend and superattractive too,” she told Ripa. “At the end of the day, I kept imagining who can I not say goodbye to and it was always him.”
Nevertheless, sending home Hayes, 27, was tough. “That was the hardest day of my life, not to mention it was one of the greatest days,” she continued. “But I told myself I would never want to take that moment from [Robby]. So I stopped him before [he proposed]. I have so much respect for him because he’s such a good guy.”
