It’s only been a week since the “After the Final Rose” special aired in which former “Bachelorette” JoJo Fletcher sat on the couch with her new beau and fiance Jordan Rodgers, announcing that they are still engaged and planning to move in together. As much as we want to believe in this made-for-TV relationship, it’s impossible. There are too many rumors and drama surrounding this high-profile couple to believe that they are the real deal.
Now that the cat’s out of the bag and they can
make bank from endorsements share their time together on social media, neither Jordan nor JoJo are holding back in showing off their apparent undying love for one another.
Yet, every photo seems so staged. Each picture comes a caption in which they are pitching a brand that’s sponsoring their whirlwind romance, which makes it even more difficult got aboard the Jordan and JoJo train.
Ugh. We really do want to believe in them. Who doesn’t love a “Bachelorette” love story? The ones that work out are so few and far between. And even though they were gushing about each other during that “Final Rose” special, their body language was telling an entirely different story. It’s so placed. And distant.
The social media posts are what’s really driving the nail in this engagement coffin. They are a too perfect. They appear to be modeling in ads, not enjoying true intimate moments with each other. Like who even took this photo? Did they hire a photographer to join them on their post-show honeymoon?
The photos People released feel even less genuine. The two of them kissing while JoJo holds a football? Come on. There’s no way these two are actually tossing around a pigskin for fun. With the Nike symbol facing camera, these shots seem to have the intention of trying to boost Jordan’s barely existent former NFL career into a media gig. These photos yell, “Hey! Check out how many likes this photo will get! I can ride this ‘Bachelorette’ thing out to bring in viewers – hire me!”
Lo and behold: Jordan’s game plan worked.
Congratulations on finally having a current profession, Jordan! He will soon be an on-camera college football analyst for the show “SEC Now.” The ESPN article notes that Jordan auditioned back in March, before “The Bachelorette.” But the job offer announcement came the day after the “Final Rose” ceremony aired. Coincidence? We think not.
Jordan, 27, and JoJo, 25, do make a cute couple. It’s clear they have fun with each other, and are probably great friends but both of them are still so young. And Jordan is still seemingly too immature to truly commit to a life-long relationship.
Aside from the rumors that the two have already broken up — rumors which Reality Steve confidently stands by — once the free gifts and luxurious trip offers die down will be the time the engagement gets called off. And this will most likely happen the moment ABC announces the next “Bachelor” star. The media attention will sharply shift from JoJo and Jordan, ripping away their luxurious lifestyle, forcing them to finally see what real life is actually like with one an another. And it won’t be pretty.
Even if their selfies are adorably convincing, Jordan and JoJo are just embracing the current fairy tale life they’ve been handed, one which unfortunately has a pending expiration date. The Malibu rental they are currently staying at goes for $3,850 a night according to People Home & Travel — there’s no way they’d be able to afford that on their own. And what about the 3-carat sparkler JoJo’s rocking? No woman in their right mind would to part with that beauty. JoJo is going to hold on to that stunning rock as long as possible.
So, why not go along with the charade? It seems like a heck of a lot of fun. It’s just very difficult to believe that this the real deal. Zap2it took a poll to see if maybe we were the only ones that felt this way – we’re not.
