‘Eric & Jessie: Game On': Why They’re The New Power Couple

Sept. 29 kicked off the season premiere of ‘Eric & Jessie: Game On’ on E! and while it’s a new couple we’re not extremely familiar with, these two have all the characteristics to be the next ‘it’ couple in Hollywood.

NFL player Eric Decker and pop singer Jessie James have everything they need — an amazing new house, adorable puppies, and an overwhelming amount of love.

Eric Decker & Jessie James: A Perfect Combination

Being introduced to Eric & Jessie: Game On, I’m going to be honest — I wasn’t sure if I was interested. As a football fan, I know him. As a pop fan (and lover of her hit Wanted), I think Jessie’s adorable.

However, I didn’t know if they could pull it off.

The trend of hot couple shows — ie. Newlyweds (the reality show not the game show), Britney & Kevin: Chaotic, Meet the Barkers, and Khloe & Lamar — has fizzled a bit, and caused many couples to actually split.

Sure, we still have Married to Jonas, but it’s hard for a new couple to break into that world — especially one with two people that are new to the celebrity world in general.

They’re Relatable & Real

However, I think that because Jessie is so relatable — a real girl’s girl with a warm heart — it actually works.

Like every girl, she loves when Eric does little things (like bring her breakfast in bed), she loves her little golden retriever puppies, and she spends her free time bonding with Sydney, her sister and best friend.

Her relationship with Eric is absolutely adorable. Their chemistry reminds me of Kendra Wilkinson and Hank Baskett‘s — he’s struggling with the ever-changing life of an NFL player, and she’s trying to make her career work and balance it with a family life. They’re even planning a wedding in the show — and in real life, expecting a baby.

While we didn’t necessarily need to see them in a bubble bath together, I actually think that these two could make a good, successful reality show. And they could be a couple that we’d love to see more of — I think I’d actually want to hang out with them!

So, HollywoodLifers — did you watch the premiere? Do you think Jessie and Eric have what it takes to be the next big reality TV couple? Let me know!

Pathetic, cheesy, sleazy…What a garbage of a show! What a pretense! She is so keen on marking her territory, that she may as well pee on him to show the world that she owns him. All that kissing and smooching and licking…. And he is so miserable that he acts like a fly caught in a spider web – and figures it’s better to get friendly with the spider than try and flee. People who are TRULY in love don’t have to jump on each other all the time to show the world how much they love each other… and yes, she wears a ton of make-up.

Jesse is so insecure……If you know anything about psychology then you know people who are overly affectionate are actually very insecure. Most murders involving a spouse or mate you will often hear always hear people say “oh they were such a loving couple” and “they looked so in love” Its that overly sexual way she acts and behaves at her age it turned me off and can no longer watch the show. She is gorgeous and has a great personality so I’m not throwing shade on her just calling it like I see it.

Eric and Jessie is an amazing show! The show actually got me into football and I am now a huge fan of the Broncos! Can’t lie at first it was only because Eric was on it but now I have gotten to know the whole team! I would love to see more of this show

We are all now dumber for having watched this show. Eric has the IQ of a caveman; staring blankly into the camera (was that drool I just saw coming out of his mouth) and sometimes grunting the occasional grammatically incorrect sentences about how hot Jessie is. Jessie is pretty; however without all the Hollywood makeup and hair stylists she is a normal girl that’d you see anywhere. I do hope her singing career can get up and running WITHOUT having to parade all over television half-naked and CONSTANTLY reminding the nation how into sex she is. Oh, but they’re so in love. Wayyy more in love than you’ll ever be. Because they have sex. ALOT OF IT. Did you know they have sex? They’re in love and have great sex. (there is no other point to the show besides this) The mother and sister are quite creepy, always hanging around and staring at them while they get busy in every corner of the house. Unfortunately I’m not sure this girl would have much of a chance at fame without her beloved caveman.

I have watched almost all of the shows because I have been bored (I never watch TV and reality shows in general), but the show is dull. I think a lot of people watch the show because they think the couple is good-looking. Their relationship is obviously on fire, but I find her constant reference to and fondling of his penis and “weiner” annoying and her vulgarity is as off-putting as the Kardashians. I mean did she really send a picture of his penis to her mother to ask if he was a good size? It seems more like a ploy to get her career on track to me (her voice is okay). Glad they are happily married and expecting a little one, but enough of the sex talk already. I know these kinds of shows are not for deep thinkers but the sex focus is just shallow.

Boring! Obviously, it doesn’t take much to get your own show these days and you don’t even have to be celebrity status to have one. Please fill in this time frame with a quality show!

I have to say I really enjoy the new Eric &Jesse game on. What I don’t enjoy is the sister Sydney NEVER have witness someone so selfish, applied rotten and rude… please tell me she is NOT a permanent part of the show if so I’m out!!! The date just rude and my 12 years old knows better then to be so rude to someone….SPOILED BRAT!! Any takers thought not..

You have to love the statement….”we don’t use condoms because we are good Catholics”…all while planning their wedding. I guess the Pope doesnt mind her getting “filled with his stuff”…along with the premarital sex.

Can’t believe I watched that whole episode. These people are annoying beyond belief. They are the EXACT couple everyone else rolls their eyes at. Jessie seems shallow and immature. Eric has the personality of a rock.

She has got to be the most annoying person on television right now. All she says is ” Ohhh baby” and “WE are in Love”. Its off puting and comes across insecure and imature. He is so much hotter than her.

I think the show is cute and they make a cute couple but she claims to be Catholic and couldn’t make the sign of the cross properly? Idk maybe I’m being petty. Best of luck to them.

A Catholic who makes nude photo shots, who licks her husband’s tongue all the time, jumps on his crotch, licks his ears, speaks about sex non-stop…She can’t even spell Catholic

I watched and thought it was cute. But Jessie definitely thinks they are bigger stars than they are and that could get annoying to listen to every week… like when she said something along the lines of.. “a lot of people are going to care about our wedding… all my country friends will be there!!”. “I was on tour with jonas!!”

Like no, you had a hit in 2009.. sit down

I thought they were completely adorable. I only knew Eric Decker because of football ( it’s a ritual with my fiancé every Sunday), but I had no idea who Jesssie James was, so I was a little on the fence about this show, but I loved them! I think she’s funny and goofy, and he’s hot, and my as dumb as I thought he would be. I can def see myself watching this show.

I’m making $86 an hour working from home. I was shocked when my neighbor told me he was averaging $95 but I see how it works now. I feel so much freedom now that I’m my own boss. This is the easiest and most comfortable work I’ve ever done. Here’s what I do Jobs95.ℭo­m

Zzzzzzzzzzzz. She’s a ditz. Needs to go back to get some quality education. Only a 9 year old boy would find this show interesting. It’ll be cancelled by show #3. As for Decker…lost all respect for him. Not ONE sports player that has went down this show has a good name anymore. #idiot

I watched the first episode quite by accident and hated it. How insecure do you have to be to go on national television and tell the world how in love you are and how much sex you are having? The only interesting part of the episode were the dogs! Beautiful and nice to see the guy (forget his name) love on them so much.
