Perhaps due to the fact they’re both endlessly adorable, or due to the fact that it’s rare for a Bachelor/ettelove story to end in marriage, everyone is rooting for Ashley Hebert and JP Rosenbaum to tie the knot already. But, despite being engaged for almost a year now, Team Cupcake hasn’t revealed any wedding plans yet.
In an exclusive interview with Wetpaint Entertainment, Ashley and J.P. took a moment to speak candidly about what advice they have for the newest Bachelorette, Emily Maynard, and her bevy of handsome Season 8 suitors. Plus, they reveal the one thing that made Ashley positive J.P. was the man for her.
Wetpaint Entertainment: Have you set a wedding date yet? Ashley: No! JP: Yes, and you’re the first one to find out! Ashley: No, no, we have not yet. We don’t know anything yet, and if we did, we wouldn’t be telling people yet.
What advice do you have for Emily Maynard? Ashley: I mean, I’m sure she’s doing a great job on her own. I think everybody kind of has a different experience, so it’s hard, but I can say from what I learned, probably just be open-minded, trust your gut instinct, don’t listen to what anyone says around you. And really try to be strong throughout the airings, it can be really hard on you.
Do you have any advice for the men trying to win her heart? JP: Yeah, just don’t try too hard. Just be yourself. Don’t try to impress her, just be you. That’s the best you can do.
What was the one thing JP did on your season to convince you he was the one? Ashley: I think he was just the most real to me. We had something… The thing about JP is I always felt like I could tell him anything. He was the one who I felt like I could confide in. So that was important to me. He was just the most real, I felt. If it was going to work on the show, it was going to work in real life too.
