Talk about awkward! ‘Bachelorette’ star JoJo Fletcher went on a date with Jordan Rodgers…and invited her ex Ben Higgins and Lauren Bushnell along. WATCH the four of them go on their Aug. 4 date at Katsuya in Hollywood, CA right here!
JoJo Fletcher, 25, Jordan Rodgers, 27, and Bachelor stars Ben Higgins, 28, and Lauren Bushnell, 25, went on what had to be the weirdest double date ever…though Ben denies that it was awkward, despite the emotional connection he once had with JoJo. “It could have been awkward, but we’re used to awkward situations at this point, so it was fun,” he tells TMZ. “It was good. I’m glad I did it, and it looks like everybody is really happy. I’ve moved on and am excited about my relationship, and I know she is as well.” There you have it: there’s not a drop of bad blood between the Bachelor/Bachelorette alumni. WATCH the rest of the interview below:
“[We got] good advice [from] good friends,” JoJo also reveals to the site about their double date. “Good tips on this crazy world that is the Bachelor.” Well, it’s great that everyone is playing nice, considering that Ben slept with JoJo before dumping her in the finale of the Bachelor.
As for the advice Ben and Lauren gave the newly engaged couple during their little lunch? “Love each other well, throughout the craziness and all the business, continue to listen and communicate, and to enjoy this crazy little time post-Bachelorette,” Ben shared. He also expressed his desire for an invite to JoJo and Jordan’s wedding, and plans to invite them to his as well! We’ll see if that happens, though.
HollywoodLifers, what do you think of JoJo’s double date with Ben? Are you glad they’re all getting along?
