As someone who dedicates hours of her time every week to living vicariously through the Duggars from 19 Kids and Counting thanks every type of social media, solving the great Ben and Jessa honeymoon debacle of '14 was quite an ordeal. Following the gorgeous wedding they celebrated last fall, the newlyweds jetted off to an undisclosed location to celebrate their marriage, and... nobody had any idea where they were, least of all me. Aside from a few nondescript Instagram selfies, there were no clues available for the longest time. But after a few days, it became clear: Ben and Jessa's honeymoon was in Europe, and this week's episode of 19 Kids and Counting is going to make it like we were right there with them.
And honestly, even as a self-proclaimed honorary Duggar, I never would have guessed that they were leaving the country, especially since Jill and her new husband, Derick Dillard, had a way more modest honeymoon on the beach in Kill Devil Hills, N.C. However, we didn't get to see the Dillards' trip, but TLC is taking us inside the Seewalds' romantic getaway.
So how did the first clue get dropped? It was pretty simple: Some fans spotted Ben and Jessa out and about in France near Notre Dame, and their cover was officially blown.
The bad news? Since they did such an awesome job at keeping their trip under wraps, there is virtually no info available about what Jessa and Ben did or where they went. All that's really known at this point is that they went to the love lock bridge and added their own lock engraved with their name and the date they got married, and that they were at the Eiffel Tower, where another fan spotted them and took a quick (very blurry) photo.
If they hadn't been recognized, I'd probably still be wondering where they went, but fortunately, those international fans had my back. The selfies Ben and Jessa posted of themselves being all lovey-dovey now that they were able to travel without a chaperone — except, you know, the entire TLC film crew — are pretty cute, but as you can see, they legit gave no clues as to where they could be.
It's fine, because on Tuesday night all will be revealed and I can't wait. And, um, if Jessa's not using her pink wedding dress anymore, I will gladly take it. Just for wearing around the house and stuff, you know. It's casual.
