It appears when ex-Bachelorette, JoJo Fletcher stepped in for Chris Harrison during season 16 of The Bachelorette, she caught a bit of the hosting bug. Now she and fiancé, Jordan Rodgers will serve as co-hosts for a new TBS dating competition series called The Big D. We’re not giggling- you’re giggling.
The premise of the show looks to be a cross between Ex on the Beach, Bachelor in Paradise, Temptation Island and my troubled love-life past.
A news release touts the TBS series as featuring 10 divorced couples as they move into a tropical villa in Costa Rica together to re-learn how to date and look for love with the other contestants in the house.
‘The Bachelorette’ Spoilers: JoJo Fletcher and Jordan Rodgers to Host New Dating Show.
In each episode, one person who isn’t relationship material will be eliminated, and jealous exes may try to send their rival home or defend their exes’ honor.
The Big D is from Lighthearted Entertainment, the creators of VH1’s Dating Naked and MTVs Are You the One? General Manager of TBS said about the new show, “Watching other people’s relationships and rooting for old romances and new couples is addictive. ‘The Big D’ is another attention-grabbing, bold creation in our growing unscripted portfolio,”
As for the hosts, JoJo and Jordan, both are excited about “helping people find love”, claiming that accepting the new dual role was a “no-brainer.”
“We’re excited to go on this adventure in paradise with romantic hopefuls as they step out of their comfort zones and face unconventional dating scenarios in hopes of finding new love,” their joint statement read.
JoJo knows a lot about the D. No not divorce, the other D, no the other D…dating. She was a contestant on Season 20 of “The Bachelor” and led the charge on Season 12 of “The Bachelorette”.
It was on her season of The Bachelorette she met Jordan and the two have remained engaged for over four years. The couple pushed their wedding back due to the pandemic but the beautiful bride hopes to walk down the aisle this May.
Of course, Jordan is not the only Rodgers engaged- his estranged brother, Green Bay quarterback Aaron Rodgers announced his surprise engagement to actress Shailene Woodley earlier this year.
