One person will definitely not be tuning in to "Bachelor" couple Ben Higgins and Lauren Bushnell's new reality show, and that person is Ben's ex, JoJo Fletcher.
When asked whether she watched the premiere episode of "Ben & Lauren: Happily Ever After" on Oct. 11, JoJo made it clear the show was not on her radar.
"We were on a flight from L.A. to Dallas that night," JoJo told reporters at an appearance at the Mohegan Sun Casino in Connecticut on Oct. 14 according to Us Weekly. And instead of just leaving it at that, the 25-year-old reality star added, "Did anyone watch it? I don't know anything about it."
Ouch! After being burned by Ben on his season of "The Bachelor" it seems only just that JoJo got a chance to burn him right back.
The 25-year-old was dumped by Ben on national television during the 20th season of the hit ABC show in one of the harsher breakups in franchise history. Despite software salesman Ben telling her he was in love with her, JoJo came in second to the 26-year-old flight attendant Lauren..
Fast forward a season of "The Bachelorette" on which JoJo starred and now things are very different. The Dallas, Texas based real estate developer found love again -- this time with Aaron Rodgers' little brother Jordan Rodgers -- while secured his "Bachelor" spinoff with fiancé Lauren on the Freeform network.
Ironically despite not wanting to acknowledge her ex's latest venture into reality TV, JoJo actually featured prominently in the show's premiere episode. Not only is there a lot of talk about Ben's former love on the episode, but JoJo also calls Ben and asks to go on a double date after the taping of her episode of "After the Final Rose." That doesn't sit well with Lauren, and most of the episode centers around the awkwardness of Ben's relationship with the runner-up from his "Bachelor" season.
Though JoJo didn't address her cameo at the Mohegan Sun Casino appearance, she did make reference to it on Twitter. Fellow "Bachelor" contestant and close friend of JoJo Becca Tilley tweeted about the "Ben & Lauren: Happily Ever After" episode, alluding to the fact that all of the JoJo and Ben drama might have just been for show. "Pretty sure JoJo is over Ben. Pretty sure Ben is over JoJo. Pretty sure Lauren & JoJo are friends. And pretty sure producers pushed that." Becca tweeted, to which JoJo replied, "@beccatilley5 & I'm pretty sure you're right Rebecca!"
