Although you shouldn't expect to see her skiing, JoJo Fletcher will make an appearance during the third episode of The Bachelor Winter Games. Her fiancé Jordan Rodgers won't be popping up though, so what are Jordan and JoJo doing in 2018? The pair, who met in 2016 during JoJo's season of The Bachelorette, is still together and engaged. But Jordan made it clear in a February 2018 People magazine interview that The Bachelorette couple isn't in any rush to have a wedding this year. Based on their social media accounts, they do seem to be in love — so don't worry about that. Plus, they are keeping busy in plenty of other ways in 2018.
On The Bachelor Winter Games, JoJo joins fellow former Bachelorette Rachel Lindsay in judging a kissing contest and neither is accompanied by her fiancé. But that's probably for the best considering that Luke Pell and Dean Unglert are on The Bachelor spinoff and Luke was in JoJo's final four and Dean was in Rachel's final four. It could get awk to have all the significant others there.
Outside of appearing on shows here and there, Jordan told People that he and JoJo are getting to enjoy their relationship off reality TV. "Think about it: When you get together in an accelerated process, it makes sense to take your time afterwards. We still have no doubts about what we want to do, and we want to get married — but we want to enjoy every moment of it," Jordan said. "When you meet in nine weeks, you miss the dating and the courtship and the traveling."
Beyond their relationship, JoJo and Jordan are busy with their professional lives. After The Bachelorette, People reported that Jordan landed a job with ESPN's SEC network as a college football studio analyst. The former college and professional quarterback still has that job, noting to People in his February 2018 interview that he travels a lot from August to December for work. Jordan also has occasionally filled in for hosting duties on the ESPN podcast "Spain and Fitz" and that's something he continues to do in 2018.
Like many other members of Bachelor Nation, Jordan has partnered with companies for some extra cash. Based on his Instagram, he's recently collaborated with the watch company MVMT. And, the couple who hawks products together apparently stays together since JoJo also promotes MVMT's women's line. But a new company that Jordan started repping in time for Valentine's Day 2018 is Captain Morgan for their apparel line. Specifically, he posed for the rum company's "posepants" underwear that features a pre-rolled up leg...
JoJo also has her fair share of company partners that she promotes on her Instagram like FabFitFun, Old Navy, and Bombay Hair. But a new collaboration she has is with skin care company Dermalogica. She joined forces with her Bachelor buddy Becca Tilley, who appeared on Chris Soules' season before meeting JoJo during Ben's season, to create a limited-edition skin kit for "besties."
While JoJo was already in real estate when she appeared on Ben's season of The Bachelor, she has been taking that aspect of her career up a notch since then. As Refinery29 reported, JoJo's Snapchat indicated that she was looking to flip houses in early 2017. In September 2017, the real estate developer shared a video on Instagram of a successful house flip she completed with the help of Jordan. He noted to People in February that she's still busy doing that in 2018, so maybe JoJo and Jordan could have their own show that replaces Fixer Upper. After all, JoJo and Jordan are living in Texas like Chip and Joanna Gaines. And JoJo's LinkedIn profile reveals that she even shares the same alma mater as the Gaines — Baylor University. (Plus, she recently liked a tweet that suggested ABC or HGTV give her and Jordan a home renovation show, so she's in.)
But, Bachelor fans still want to know about their wedding plans and beyond. "It's something that we continually talk about," Jordan told People. "I imagine at some point in the near future we're going to sit down and really talk about when and what that'll look like, but we don't have a date set yet."
The couple is already talking about kids, though. “Both of JoJo’s brothers are expecting,” Jordan said to People. “So the baby fever came, and she gives me those eyes. She’s like, ‘I want one!’ I’m like, ‘We’ve got things to do before we get there!’ ... But you better believe my parents are like, ‘Hey, we want grandkids!’" They may not be agreed on when to have them, but they do know how many they want. Jordan told People, "I think JoJo and I always say we would like to have three kids."
Like The Bachelorette couple before them — Kaitlyn Bristowe and Shawn Booth — JoJo and Jordan are understandably taking their time when it comes to walking down the aisle (and having children). So expect them to continue enjoying just being engaged in 2018 as their relationship continues to grow.
