Jef definitely took his time to make a move on Em! Read on to find out why!
In an interview with reporters, Jef revealed why he took so long to kiss Emily Maynard.
“When I first got to the house, I realized every guy was going full steam ahead for Emily, surrounding and swarming her. That’s not how I am with girls. I was the only guy who played it cool and wanted her [to know she was] going to have to fight for and pursue me, too,” he said.
That was definitely a risk for Jef to take considering his competition, but the skater boy said he didn’t feel like that put him behind in the game.
“I didn’t feel like I had to catch up. All the guys thought I was crazy and blowing it, but didn’t realize Emily and I were sharing looks back and forth … We started off slowly and developed a really good friendship. As time goes on, that friendship turns into more and more of a romance,” he said.
So cute! Jef said if he doesn’t win the competition — which we totally think he does — he’d put his money on race car driver Arie Luyendyk Jr.
“There were some amazing guys there. I think the world of Arie. Sean is a faithful, genuine guy. Chris and Doug are great. Now that Ryan is gone, everybody is there for the right reasons,” he said.
Jef is probably the cutest and sweetest contestant that has ever been on the Bachelorette.
