Ben Higgins and JoJo Fletcher dated on The Bachelor, but are both now engaged to other people: Lauren Bushnell and Jordan Rodgers. Yet, Bachelor Nation will watch a double date with the four of them on Happily Ever After?, Higgins and Bushnell’s new reality show. So … is it weird to go on a double date with your fairly recent ex?
“Whenever you sit down with people that you've dated before it's going to be a little awkward for at least the start!” Higgins tells ET. “It was a good thing for us both to do. ... It was kind of good for us to kind of support each other and put all the weirdness aside.”
Fletcher said the date simply wasn’t awkward at all. “I have found somebody,” she said. “He is with Lauren. We're both super happy and we can kind of just rejoice in that together.”
The foursome hit up Katsuya restaurant in Hollywood in August. Just days before the date, Bushnell explained her connection with Fletcher to ET. "It is really cool to have that relationship, and everyone thinks it's weird," she said. "But to me, it's not, because at a lot of points in this journey, you don't have a lot of support from people that know exactly what you're going through, and there's so many times where JoJo and myself -- we know exactly what the other's going through."
Rodgers said Higgins gave him some “brotherly advice” during the outing. Viewers will get to see it all go down this season on Ben and Lauren: Happily Ever After?, premiering Oct. 11 on Freeform.
